Edgewalkers are the first people to volunteer to head up a new business, lead a cross-company initiative, or take on an overseas assignment. They are the glad half-full people who are constantly “thinking out of the box” and forging alliances with colleagues in other departments and collaborating on global, visionary projects. They are seeking out new solutions to old problems and anticipating challenges on the horizon. In today’s increasingly diverse workplaces and with the global shifts in our economies, environment, cultures and consciousness, they are the people who have traveled widely to serve and support, pursue unusual educational and career paths, and speak more than one language. These Edgewalkers are literally individuals who walk between two worlds. In ancient cultures, each village had a shaman or medicine man who would visit the invisible world to obtain vital information, guidance and healing for members of the tribe. “Edgewalking” does not come without risks and challenges. These unconventional people often clash with more traditional, rule bound colleagues and systems and can be frustrated by organizational systems that emphasize qualitative results over creative impulses. And yet in today’s fast-changing, globalized business environment and evolutionary shift in consciousness, these people must be recruited so organizations can stay competitive and individuals will have the leadership, models and guidance to expand, transform and prosper in this evolutionary time on the planet. Edgewalkers from a variety of fields are making a positive and necessary impact on the world with their unique approach, vision and purpose as well as practical tools to gauge and manage your own edgewalking skills.
