Now, you might think that the proof begins with a long list of Steve’s credentials. That’s important, and you can click here to jump straight to that long list. But before we go there, start by asking why you need a business speaker and what you want to get from the experience of bringing one in. Then see if Steve’s got the chops for it.
If those are things you want, then Steve’s your man.
Ah, but we hear that voice in the back of your head that’s asking an all-so-relevant question: “What’s he gonna talk about?”
Steve is best known for teaching the concept of Extreme Leadership, a framework and methodology that’s been adopted by tens of thousands of people who’ve heard him speak and/or read his three bestselling books:
The heart of Steve’s message is that love is good business, or, as he puts it, “Do what you love in the service of people who love what you do.” But this isn’t soft and mushy stuff. It’s built on solid business principles that add value to the lives of your leaders and to the bottom line of your business – no matter what business you’re in.
Steve builds his presentations around four core themes that he customizes to fit the needs of each audience. He also delivers fresh, relevant content that leaders can immediately apply to their work. And his framework stands on its own as something your organization can adopt, but it also supports other proven frameworks, making it a secret sauce that supercharges any organization’s success.
Steve is best known for developing and sharing his Extreme Leadership framework and methodology. The concepts he now teaches are rooted in the experiences that began when we was running his own financial services company. He went on to become director of service programs at TMI, an international training consultancy, and then worked for six years as “Vice President and Official Mouthpiece” (that’s what it said on his business card) of The Tom Peters Company, where he met several of his mentors, including author/gurus Tom Peters, Jim Kouzes, and Terry Pearce. In 2000, Steve established his own company, Extreme Leadership, Inc., where he is president and CEO. He also founded the Extreme Leadership Institute and is a member of the Transformational Leadership Council.
Steve is an Extreme Leader in every sense and is happy to share his Extreme Leadership knowledge and insights with audiences as a business speaker. He maintains a strong commitment to Extreme Leadership that enables him to differentiate himself from other leadership coaches, and this commitment has helped him become a globally recognized leadership influencer.
