Have you ever had a reasonable conversation with someone that first happened to be a major difference in opinion, turned into a debate, and soon, a divide? I bet you we all have!

One important lesson my 92-year-old father taught me is “Steve, don’t let a small, insignificant battle turn into a war. Once a war starts, someone usually wins and someone loses”.

When leaders fail to understand others, there are three roadblocks I observe:
  1. First, self-interest and ego.
  2. Second, insecurity and fear.
  3. Third, lack of self-awareness.

As a master storyteller, Steve has unparalleled ability to communicate dynamic business and leadership truths through stories, anecdotes and humor. Harness the power of the “number one” predictor of professional success, impact, leadership, high performance and sustainable relationships in business and life. Steve’s highest rated keynote presentation.
