Stories That Connect


Self-talk. We all engage in it. It’s normal. It’s necessary. But what happens when our inner voice becomes our worst, and most constant critic?

It stops us from reaching our true potential. It steals our confidence, our joy, and even our dreams.

Sound familiar? If so, I can help, by providing you the necessary fuel for growth. It’s more than just a few frilly words; it’s relatable, real world experience, accompanied by surprisingly simple solutions.

Identify your passions, get out of your own way, and start living the life you deserve.

Are YOU ready?


How we treat one another says a lot about who we are. Even small acts of kindness can have a tremendous impact in the life of someone else. 

Without even realizing it, we might be…

  • A friend to the lonely
  • The words of encouragement that someone needs to hear
  • The reason someone tries again, and SUCCEEDS

When we bring out the best in others, it reveals the best in us. Change a life. Change the WORLD.

YOU have the power. 


Developing a strong and inclusive culture is vital to the success of any organization.

When a company’s core values can be seen and felt in the day to day operations of its leadership, it establishes trust and goodwill with the workforce, and creates opportunities for everyone.

By fostering an environment that prioritizes employee strengths, we give ourselves the ability to more readily identify potential challenges. From there, we can adapt quickly, and meet those challenges head-on.

We win as a team…

And it begins with YOU.

Workshops & Trainings

Average Length of Time: Half Day-Full Day
Available In Person or Virtually

Workshops and trainings differ from keynote addresses in that the audience members become full participants, while Steve acts as the moderator. These are fun, interactive, hands-on events, that are specific to a particular environment. People come together to identify existing and potential hurdles, and engage in honest conversation, in an effort to come up with solutions that will work for everyone involved.

In addition to having open discussions, these events may feature games, or even role-play activities. For example, imagine conducting a high school workshop, and having two or more students act out a pre-determined scene involving bullying, where that scene can be stopped and examined at any point along the way. This is a great chance for both the students and administrators to pinpoint opportunities for de-escalation and conflict resolution.

It’s also possible to employ the use of role-play activities in the workplace, to address such things as customer service issues, communication breakdowns, etc. Whatever the training method, these workshops offer a unique opportunity to share what you know, and to learn from the experiences of others.
