History

Something magical happens when you combine cutting edge leadership practices, engagement research, and management techniques along with improvisational comedy, dynamic discussion, and active learning.  That something is Leading Edge…

In 2001, company founders Carol Grannis and Cindy Maher met when their respective Minneapolis, MN-based and Hartford, CT-based employers merged. The two women quickly connected and discovered that they shared a unique set of skills and experiences.  Both had obtained a theatre degree and both had collected rich experiences in the business world as HR, organizational development and learning & development leaders.

Theatre, HR, and training … what a weird combo, right?  But, when those three areas of expertise blend together, the most engaging and profound learning experience happens.

Since 2003, company founders Carol Grannis and Cindy Maher have brought hundreds of their memorable leadership learning experiences to Fortune 500 companies, federal and state government agencies, colleges and universities.  They’ve had the opportunity to work within a rich variety of industries including: pharmaceutical sales, advertising, healthcare, financial services, engineering, legal, scientific, and information technologies.
