A Personal Note From Steven:

I was waiting in the SEATAC airport for my last flight of the year. Of course, I didn’t know at the time that it was going to be the last trip I’d take in 2020.  When I arrived four days earlier, the city was awkwardly busy. People were trying to decide between fist bumps or elbows. Social distancing was a new term. Seattle had become the North American epicenter of the pandemic and the event I spoke at was the last public meeting before everything shut down.  Now, just a few days later the airport was strangely quiet and I was slowly accepting that this new reality was going to be more chaotic than we wanted to admit.

The months that followed tested every aspect of what I share with my audiences. In other words, we were forced to practice what I preach and prove that the Champions in the Choas approach was still relevant when the disruption was so drastic. The good news is that it worked as we identified how we could best serve our clients and then quickly expanded our capabilities as we moved ahead fulfilling their needs. 

It hasn’t been easy. I’m sure you can attest to that. But, we share something in common — a devotion to excellence and growth regardless of the circumstances. 

Thank you for considering my programs for your organization.  I would be honored to partner with you in the near future — be it virtually or on-location.

Just one more thing I’d like you to know about me — I believe that it is “as bad to tell a lie, as it is to bore people with the truth.” When I speak to a group of people (a small group of 10 or thousands), I know that the best way to convey a truth, inspire action, and have long-term application is to be genuine and entertaining. We will have fun.  It will not be a lecture or just another presentation. It will be more of a conversation. You can count on stories, genuine energy and I will involve the audience in a variety of ways.

People frequently tell me, “It felt like you were talking just to me.”

That’s my purpose – to speak to the heart and encourage people to take action on the things that matter most.
