The Secret of Success

Leadership has no “finish line.” We are all on a lifelong leadership journey, and every person’s journey is unique to them. Co-Active is a contextual lens to experience this journey from different orientations.

Coaches are trained to engage our brains in a way that helps us better navigate human complexity by: Reducing stress to enable more sound, long-term solutions; Sparking new thought patterns that increase decision-making agility and creativity.

Thinking we can keep the world black and whiteto make it simplier, we are actually making it more complex


Understand your impact on others and the world around you


Learn how to navigate conflict, how to design your responses and recover from being triggered


Know how to respond instead of react, putting relationships first

Client Testimonials

Don’t take my word for it – here’s what some of the people I have worked with say:

Steve has been a great help to me. Sure, it’s a cliche to start testimonials this way, but that’s simply the way it is.

When I responded to his request for people to practice coaching on, I expected some good conversations but not much in terms of change. I’ve worked with other coaches in the past, and they’ve had some difficulties in getting through. Steve though, he listened. Intently. Empathically. And I felt heard. And then he questioned, and his questions helped me confront parts of my thinking out in the open. My financial thoughts and concerns, my commitment to ethics and my avoidance of emotional conflict. And through it all, I was invited to be open and vulnerable, because Steve was open and vulnerable. He offers a rare thing, and I feel privileged to be able to make use of his services.

My fears going in to it [coaching] was that the coaching might impact the relationship I have with Steve outside of the coaching relationship, or that our previous work together might make the coaching feel awkward, or I’d have difficulty sharing some of the more personal thoughts and ideas I had. I’m happy to say that these fears turned out to be unfounded, with Steve expertly separating our coaching from our out-of-session interactions together. Additionally, his relaxed and genuinely caring style made it easy to talk to him and share.

Steve was expert in picking out my often non-committal language, challenging me to either reconsider what I really wanted or make a commitment to act on my plans and ideas. Additionally, he was great at separating when he was talking as my coach and when he was talking to me as Steve, as there would be times where he could answer questions or uncertainties I had directly as a result of our shared field or work. Overall, the coaching experiences I had with Steve were fantastic, and I consider it time well invested. I look forward to having more sessions with him in the future, and will be adding him to the select few people I recommend as coaches.
