Stephen’s coaching was very inspiring and liberating. It opened my eyes to blind spots that were potentially inhibiting my growth. I am now more self-aware, confident, and purposeful in what I do as a leader. He is extremely knowledgeable and competent in a broad range of topics. His questioning techniques were powerful in helping me see my blind spots and open my mind to new concepts. Rather than simply providing answers, Stephen challenged me to solve my own problems and answer my own questions which was a lot more effective for internalizing my learning.
