What we do


Leading Edge Mentoring takes a stand for accountable, value-added organizational leadership:


The Leading Edge Mentoring mission is to make a difference in the impact of client organizations on civil society and within professions and industries. LEM provides tools and processes to enhance leadership and accountability at the Board, CEO and Senior Management levels. The end result is to shift the success measurements from activity results to real impacts that advance the cause of the organization.


Leading Edge Mentoring is a sought after resource, hired to shepherd an effective change process in individuals and organizations through motivating, mentoring, and monitoring people and their accountability to a process.


The values and principles upon which LEM services are provided are based on win/win relationships with clients where both parties are invested in the vision of success, meaningful change, and the cause of personal and organizational leadership. We will hold true to the values of win/win in terms of work to be done and payment to be received. Projects will only be undertaken if fair compensation can be received for the effort expended. Long term contracts will require partial payment up front. In return, LEM personnel and its sub-contractors will prepare for each project thoroughly, bringing fresh ideas to the process and innovative ways of facilitating the process.

How we work


Radwan believes there is great synergy in collaboration. As such, LEM is involved in five significant collaborative efforts:


Partners in Policy GovernancePartners in Policy Governance is a collaborative effort with Eric Craymer of Growth Management Consulting. Our Global End is: a supported community of Policy Governance® users. To that end, we offer seminars for the public, user groups for Policy Governance practitioners, board retreats and orientations focused on Policy Governance sustainability and model-compliant practices.

The CAE Exam Preparation Program is a collaborative effort between the Michigan Society of Association Executives (MSAE) offering three different products, all geared to preparing association executives who are pursuing the designation of Certified Association Executive (CAE).   The products include two online courses and one classroom program, each offered twice annually.  The collaboration also published a study guide that was used by Allied Societies around the US.   It is believed that this collaboration directly prepares at least 1/3 of the candidates entering the rank of CAE. 

In addition to the collaboration with MSAE on the CAE study program, Radwan and MSAE have collaborated on projects in the country of Jordan in fulfillment of USAID grants, as well as in the creation of The Association Connection, MSAE's webcast on-demand series. The webcasts cover 20 topics geared to association executives and support staff, suppliers to associations, and board members.

The webcasts are available at or call (517) 332-6723 for more information.


Consulting Specialty: Policy Governance®

Policy Governance® is a systems-driven approach to governing organizations.   This technology for governing at the board level  offers a comprehensive and coherent whole system perspective.   Designed by John Carver, this hands-on operating system for Boards is applicable to the corporate, public sector, and not-for-profit communities.  The model empowers Boards to bring an effective values-added role to the organization.

Policy Governance® is more than a structure. It is an integrated model of principles, philosophy, structure and process. The governing style of a Policy Governance board is best described in the following broad policy, entitled Governing Style:

"The board will govern with an emphasis on (a) outward vision rather than an internal preoccupation, (b) encouragement of diversity in viewpoints, (c) strategic leadership more than administrative detail, (d) clear distinction of board and chief executive roles, (e) collective rather than individual decisions, (f) future rather than past or present, and (g) proactivity rather than reactivity.

On any issue, the Board must insure that all divergent views are considered in making decisions, yet must resolve into a single organizational position.

Features of the Model:

The philosophical bases for the model:

Our Services

Strategic Planning Services for the Not-for-Profit Association

Boards that attend to vision are more certain
to address that which has enduring importance.

John Carver

If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there, but if you want to maximize the impact of your association on its industry, you need a focused approach, a road map and accountability in the vision. Using a Systems Thinking Approach™, Sue Radwan will work with you to develop your plan using a five step Systems Model, described below.  The finished plan will include timelines, delegation and how to evaluate progress and success. A unique aspect of Leading Edge facilitation is that the Board focuses on Governance and Leadership concerns and considers how the committee structure can bring a value-added role to the initiatives. As a result, the Board reviews the governance role as well as the means of the association. Support services available include member survey construction. The final report, of course, is prepared by Leading Edge Mentoring.

More on the Systems Thinking Approach® to planning

The Systems Thinking Approach™ , developed by the Haines Centre for Strategic Management, has as its core a deceptively simple but profound five-step Systems Model that helps leaders collaborate with key stakeholders to identify the best direction for their organization and then lead consistently in that direction.  The five steps are: Phase A: Desired Future State – identifying shared outcomes that take both practical reality and best possible results into account; Phase B: Key Success Measures – desired outcomes are quantified as mutually agreed-upon measures, so all essential parties define “success” in the same ways and can agree on the evaluation of results; Phase C: Current State Assessment – while many ‘strategic planners’ start with this phase, it actually only makes sense in relation to your desired outcomes – What strengths, weaknesses, resources, challenges, etc. do we have to achieve our stated vision?; Phase D: Closing the Gap – developing Core Strategies and action plans, and taking effective action to implement them fully, ensuring staff buy-in and stay-in over time; and Phase E: Future Environment Scanning – an on-going system to help leaders keep tabs on important trends and developments, determine which ones require action, and take action before they become problems. Such actions are integrated into the systems view of the organization, rather than representing divergence from the clear direction. 

The ABCDE Systems Model is supported by clear processes and practices for each step, including a Parallel Involvement Process for key stakeholders throughout the performance-based management process.  For example, we provide methods to help leaders gather feedback and input from key stakeholder groups, derive priorities and meaning from the data, reinforce employee engagement and the value of their contributions, and still retain final decision-making power.

Elected Leader Education

Dreaming is not only permissible for leaders, it is obligatory.
Yet Board members lose their vision as they tend to operational issues.

John Carver

Ultimately, the board is responsible for its own development, its own job design, its own discipline, and its own performance. But nothing changes if nothing changes. Shifting the attention of the Board is a process which takes training and consistent focus of the organization's leadership. Leading Edge Mentoring can provide the third party voice which helps the Board to realize its proper role as the moral trustees of their industry, focused on broad strategic direction and connection to the community membership.

Elected Leader Education content might include:

  • The Nature of Associations
  • Roles & Responsibilities of the Board
  • Aligning the Board and Committee Communication
  • Introduction to Policy Governance®
  • Enhancing the Board's Group Process
  • Team Building
  • Skills to Govern

Policy Governance Consulting

  • Is your Board confused about what its job really is?
  • Has your Board lost sight of its duty to the membership?
  • Is your Board stuck in operations and micromanagement?
  • Are the structural boundaries of your organization caving in or nonexistent?
  • Is the energy of your Board stagnant?
  • Do you ever think there just has to be a better way?

If you answered "yes" to any or all of the questions above, Policy Governance® just may be the answer you are seeking.
