Stephen has worked with senior management in many organizations such as Microsoft on both strategic initiatives as well as culture change programs, which were designed to harness the discretionary energy for all levels of a workforce. His specific methodology when applied creates sustainable results through systems and accountability.

His background in the financial services industry and being part of the succession plan for senior leadership, give him a deep understanding of business and what is required to make positive changes in people and systems.

Stephen creates and designs programs that create learning velocity. As an example, he led the Aconcagua Man Project, which later became a documentary film, entitled Climb to Freedom. This film chronicles the transformation of seven men on a yearlong journey to climb a high mountain and how to bring those learnings and experience back to business, life, and relationships. See the film here:

Stephen has been in the field of Leadership Development since 1994, after his own existential crises for personal fulfillment. While he believes in intellectual humility as a focus, he is known for his honesty, integrity, and courage to serve other leaders. He does not believe in modern day gurus that espouse truth, rather he believes in deep and meaningful dialogue that opens others to possibility, mindset, actions, and inspirations.
