Advancing Human Potential

SBeckSig_TAGI am an experienced leader and facilitator (10,000 hours +) of over 500 strengths-based performance improvement  programs. My experience tells me something that you may already know but it is a human performance industry secret; transformational shifts in thinking and real behavior change do not come from a course guide book, a PowerPoint slide deck, a video, a one-way webinar or an easily accessible online tool. These tools have purpose and function as they are great at transferring information.

What I have discovered is that real behavioral change happens when people can emotionally relate to and connect with the messenger or facilitator in an open learning environment.  Equally important for sustainable success is that the content is driven by evidence-based research.  A live, authentic, interactive and dynamic learning environment creates  “in the moment” individual and group discovery and motivation or inspiration for positive change. If that is what you are looking for then you have come to the right place.

“I have attended/endured numerous training meetings in my 23 years in Pharma – but rarely have I seen talent like Steven. His comfort in front of the room, quick-wit and ability to engage people and keep them riveted to the material is other-worldly. He makes you feel as if you’ve known him all your career, and speaks to you like a friend or colleague. I was blown away by how many people told me that he was the best presenter they have ever seen. The room is always filled with energy – people are laughing, enjoying the exercises and most importantly, retaining the concepts. It takes a skilled facilitator to accomplish all of these things – and Mr. Beck makes it look easy!

“Steven is a world-class learning and development consultant. He taught leadership and manager development programs for some of the world largest companies, and was consistently amongst the highest rated and most requested learning consultant. Steven embodies professionalism and drives great value for any group he works with. He is particularly skilled at developing effective sales leaders, and resonates with leaders across industries. I highly recommend Steven.”

In May I was featured on Gallup’s Strengths Coaches Playbook, a resource for those who want to help others truly understand their strengths and learn how to use them. Gallup experts and outside contributors share tactics, insights, and strategies to help strengths coaches maximize the talent of individuals, teams, and organizations everywhere.

  1. Found your site via the Gallup article. Was so pleased to see someone else using appreciative inquiry (AI) in their coaching approach. In my work, I combine AI with generative somatics to accelerate the embodiment of those life-giving insights. People are able to take action with greater confidence, speed, and impact. Now I’m looking to blend this with the Gallup strengths work. I look forward to reading more from you.
