About Steven

I care about bridging hearts and minds of people working to improve their work and world. Edifying places where communications breakdown supports essential collaborations.

Altus leverages the talents of its team to aid the development of leaders’ excellence in working throughout organizational systems. We bring knowledge, wisdom, and enjoyment in achieving excellent outcomes across the spheres of leadership.

My gifts include moving leaders and teams to know their value while extending the ability to engage in new ways. Clients appreciate my ability to deepen their ways of leading openly, and vibrantly creating free spaces from which they achieve success regardless of where they sit or stand in the organization. They take charge of their capacity to lead and collaborate with others.

Leaders and executive teams report I help them have better conversations with their peers, partners, and direct reports. Moreover, some share experiencing magical moments, as they discover new ways to coordinate action to achieve more significant outcomes.

Leaders’ building more inclusive environments: NASA, Peoples Natural Gas, PPG, Intelligence Community. Award winning teams Food and Drug Administration, and National Institutes of Health. Developing executive leaders: Partnership for Public Service, Jim Casey Internal Revenue Service, Department of Education. Expanding leaders’ abilities to transform action that realize the mission: Bloomberg Foundation, Equal Justice, Living Cities, in Alexandria City, VA, and Arlington, VA.

I hold a Ph.D. in adult development and leadership and am a certified coach from Newfield and The Institute for Generative Leadership, and an advanced practitioner of Results Based Facilitation. I also have certifications in a variety of assessment tools and 360° instruments.

I am a proud husband and uncle who enjoys traveling, jazz, theater, Pilates, reading fiction and nonfiction and visual and performance art. In my community, I serve as a mentor and facilitate work supporting inclusion across the spectrum of human identity.
