Steve organizes events and gatherings, connects, writes, speaks, and enrolls and engages leaders throughout the region about the power of building and deepening relationships with intentional vision—that drives every one of us as leaders and contributors.
If everyone only did the things that speak to and respond to their intentional vision, what an amazingly inspired work, family and community experience we’d author and live in!
A trained artist, noted relationship builder, connecter and a well versed business and financial expert from his diverse, prior-life on Wall Street, Steven has a lifelong curiosity for what motivates organizations and leaders to do the things they do. Studying the leaders and companies that make the greatest impact in the world and achieve a more lasting success than others, he discovered the formula that explains how they do it.
The amazingly simple idea, the power of building and deepening core business relationships with intentional vision, is embedded in the make-up of human motivation and action—that when tapped into and directed to one’s highest purpose or motivations, is changing how leaders and companies think and act.
Steven’s universal and timeless views on business, connecting, business relationships and leadership have attracted attention from leaders in the business, public and private sectors, in the non-profit and for profit world, and have earned him invitations to meet with and access an unusually broad range of leaders of organizations, including: AOL, Human Genome Sciences, Discovery Channel, Merrill Lynch, Raymond James, Members of The House of Representatives, Congressional Joint Committees, Washington Ballet, Dr. Stephen Covey, Dr. Thomas Stanley, civic and non-profits, and numerous emerging growth companies.
