Steve’s leadership, advice, and coaching helped me become a better leader and helped me communicate more effectively with my team. Steve was my direct supervisor when I worked at the student government office at the University of California, Merced. His strengths-based coaching definitely improved the dynamic of our team and allowed us to incorporate them into all of our projects and team meetings. Steve took the time to go through every team member’s top five strengths and had personal one on one meetings to ensure enough time to ask questions and understand our results. Steve’s strengths based coaching did not stop as soon as we left the coaching session. In fact, every week he would highlight one strength and we would discuss it at team meetings and find ways to incorporate that strength into the work we were doing. Steve’s coaching was incredibly helpful and I was able to apply it to both a team and manager setting. I still find myself incorporating the strengths and coaching I learned as I worked with Steve and encourage anyone to take a coaching session with him.

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.
