Rob custom designed and conducted a 12-month management training workshop series for our management staff. The sessions were informative, insightful and interactive. Our managers particularly liked the "real world case studies" which Rob often used to illustrate some of the topics. The workshops also provided an alternative but quite effective forum for our managers to interact with and gain further understanding of each other.

OUR MISSION AND VALUES:
At True Edge Performance Solutions, we know the human side of business performance, and the business value of high performing people. Our mission is to sharpen people and organizations so they can accomplish extraordinary things. Supporting this mission are "Five Pillars of Truth," the foundational values upon which we base our decisions and actions: Treasuringpeople breeds success. Whether associates, customers, vendors, or neighbors, each person has inherent value and should be treated with dignity, honor, and respect. People perform at their best when they are treasured by others.
Reachingupward never ceases. There is no such thing as "good enough." Successful organizations continuously strive to do better. While content and secure with their mission and values, the satisfaction of a job well done never begins to eclipse the excitement of doing it better.
Understandingprecedes resolution. Few problems resolve themselves. The best solutions most often follow a thorough comprehension of the situation. We believe that prescription before diagnosis is malpractice.
Teamwork produces the sweetest victories. Success is exhilarating, contagious, and meant to be shared.
Honestyis the best policy. Honesty breeds trust, which strengthens relationships and is good for "business." Without integrity, there are no real rewards.
