What makes True Edge unique?

Distinctive combination of executive experience and professional psychological expertise

We offer a valuable fusion of skills and experience that delivers deeper insights, superior assessments, and truly sustainable impact. We understand the complexities of human behavior in organizational settings, and can translate that psychological perspective into strategic and practical value.

“Inner Circle” loyalty and candor.

We focus on the specific needs of business owners, C-level executives, and key leadership personnel. In most cases, we become trusted advisors to the top executives in the organizations we serve. These leaders value our uncommon loyalty and candor, as they experience both affirmation and a “willingness to challenge” that helps them perform their very best.

Michael Lambert

Michael earned a distinguished Bachelor’s of Science with honors in mathematics from the US Naval Academy.  After five very rewarding years active duty as a Marine Corps officer working in aviation logistics, he began his civilian career.  Initially joining IBM in a supply chain function similar to his role in the Marines, Michael quickly zeroed in on client-facing responsibilities where he felt he contributed most naturally to the company.  The remainder of his career has been through successively broader sales and sales management roles, both at IBM and at other technology companies, culminating in his most recent position as the head of a sales, marketing and consulting team for North and South America where he helped turn around a struggling business to eventually help exit private equity ownership and complete the sale of the company to a strategic buyer.

Michael brings a wealth of experience to bear for True Edge clients who desire to grow their businesses, define and execute strategic plans, improve sales and business development functions, optimize compensation plans, build high-performance customer-facing teams, and the like.  He is excited to leverage his experience with large enterprise “best practices” to benefit local business leaders in their efforts to reach more customers in a professional and repeatable way.

With his wife and their six young children, Michael lives in the Willow Street area on eight acres.  They homestead, homeschool their children and attend St. Joseph’s church downtown Lancaster.  He is an avid and accomplished athlete, mostly cycling and running these days, but his joy is being with his family, working, praying and playing together.

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:

Treasuring people 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.

Reaching upward 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.

Understanding precedes 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.

Honesty is the best policy. Honesty breeds trust, which strengthens relationships and is good for “business.” Without integrity, there are no real rewards.
