Steve facilitated a Gallup Strengths Finder assessment for our team in November of 2017. He did an extraordinary job coaching us throughout the different group activities and helped identify both our individual and team strengths. As a result, our team was able to learn more about each other. Therefore, it maximized our team effectiveness and combined our skills to improve our performance. I do believe that without Steve’s expertise we would not have obtained the same results.

Steve served as the adviser to our student government (among many other things) for the three years I was involved with the Associated Students. Steve was an instrumental part in keeping the peace and guiding students to becoming better leaders. The leadership and opportunities Steve provided me with over the years were key in my development both in my time as a student and even after I graduated. As someone who at first didn’t quite understand the need for strengths training Steve worked with me one on one and found a way to break through my thick skull and help me understand how strengths training could help me further develop as a leader. Steve’s knowledge in the topic, many years of experience, and his personable nature make him an amazing Coach and if given the opportunity to work with him in any capacity in the future I would take it in a heartbeat.
