A United States Army veteran, Stephen spent much of his adult life serving his country and leading combat and non-combat deployments worldwide. After leaving the Army, he joined the civilian workforce with leadership roles for several divisions of one organization. Stephen struggled with his new reality, having left the full-throttle life in the military. He was used to being surrounded by high-octane individuals with shared goals and a common work structure which he missed once outside of the military. Stephen worked through this transition with a fantastic coach, and through that experience, realized that he belonged coaching leaders and aspiring leaders in the development of their skills and career strategy. He now focuses on coaching and developing the whole person so they can achieve anything they desire.
