5 Dysfunctions of a Team Workshop - Steve has a mastery of his material and a thoughtul, articulate way of working with executives.

The results have exceeded my expectations and I am thrilled in the growth the team as achieved. I highly recommend Steve for executive coaching.

IT Budgeting - I asked Steve if he can find a way to bring my entire IT staff up a level re: budgets and finance. There was ongoing confusion with some players regarding the difference between Expense and Capital items. I felt that the entire team could use a grounding in the basics of finance to make them more rounded employees, even if many of their jobs did not require this information. Steve created a presentation that was well received, and even better, it was entertaining, holding the interest of the entire staff, from Operator to Director. We surveyed the class afterwards and Steve received rave results. The best part is that he fulfilled my request, exceeded my expectations and delivered an interactive presentation with the staff that everyone benefited from and enjoyed participating in. I would recommend Steve's organization without reservation.
