Experience and Expertise
Drawing from my extensive military background, I bring a wealth of strategic leadership, decision-making, and team dynamics knowledge. I am a certified DISC & Motivators Trainer, Emotional Intelligence Trainer, and have received advanced training in facilitation, small group development, diversity and inclusion, and leading diverse teams. I am also a certified DoD Mediator with the skills to resolve conflicts and foster positive dialogue in any setting.
In addition to my certifications, I hold a Bachelor's degree in Organizational Leadership from Ashford University and have pursued Master's degrees in Administration and Leadership, as well as Public Administration from Barry University. These academic achievements have provided me with a solid theoretical foundation to complement my practical experience.
Beyond my professional accomplishments, what sets me apart is my charismatic personality and innate ability to connect with audiences. I thrive on engaging individuals, sparking meaningful conversations, and fostering an environment of growth and transformation. I also authored the books: Stephonisms "My Thoughts, My Words, and My Experiences" and "What They Feel Matters" (Leadership and Empathy) available on Amazon.com.
I firmly believe that leadership and effective communication are not just reserved for a select few; they are skills that can be developed by anyone willing to invest the time and effort. I am dedicated to providing practical strategies, actionable insights, and a supportive framework that empowers my clients to grow as confident communicators and influential leaders.
My approach is centered around fostering a growth mindset and embracing authenticity. I encourage individuals to step out of their comfort zones, embrace their unique strengths, and cultivate their own leadership style. Together, we will explore the principles of effective communication, harness the power of persuasion, and develop the skills necessary to inspire and lead others.
