Over the years, I have come to known Steve as a hard-working, innovative professional who thinks critically and strategically as he supports teams to learn, grow, and contribute. More recently, I was fortunate to learn from Steve in his role as a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach. In our coaching session, Steve was prepared, listened intently, asked thoughtful questions, and provided meaningful insight and feedback. My self-understanding and confidence increased tremendously, and I have used what I learned to support my success in both personal and professional spheres of life. I highly recommend Steve as a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach.

Steve is an excellent strengths-based coach. He thoroughly explained my top five strengths with great detail, further helped me explore my top ten strengths and asked questions to help me gain greater insight as to how I use such strengths daily. Steve also helped clarify any misconceptions or misinterpretations I had about my strengths-based results. I appreciate Steve’s ability to connect at both an individual and group level. He is certainly passionate and gifted in his approach to ensure each person understands their strengths and how to continue cultivating such strengths.
