Medley began with the realization that something was missing from modern life
With Edith’s years of experience as a finance executive and Jordan’s experience at Harvard, fueled by what they saw as a need to invest in emerging leaders to navigate today's particularly complex environment, they arrived at the same conclusion from different perspectives. The close-knit groups that lead to our most profound growth as people, which in the past came from religious groups, teams, and neighborhoods, had evaporated from today’s social landscape.
Edith and Jordan began working with leadership experts to develop a pilot program that would enable them to test group coaching dynamics that would be most effective in fueling personal and professional growth. They found their structured approach, with thoughtfully-curated, small groups of people from diverse backgrounds, led by experienced guides, achieved the best results. These “Medleys” provided safe and supportive environments for people to exchange new ideas, learn from each other’s experiences, and build collective empathy.
