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 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.
