A Message from Stephanie
I love what I do. Very simply, when companies I work with report high employee satisfaction, great employee retention and loyalty – when they achieve, and even surpass their goals, I succeed too.
Call it living vicariously if you want to. It doesn’t matter to me. What matters is that every company and its employees enjoy professional growth and development. It’s not about hearing a keynote, participating in a workshop or receiving coaching that’s forgotten as soon as it’s over. It’s about lifetime change. I believe I’m on this earth to help others. Why would you care about that? Because my drive to help you can’t be manufactured. It’s a completely organic element that you need to make your business a success.
People are the least disposable asset your company will ever have. I’ve been there too – I’ve worked in toxic environments with bullies, and in joyful workplaces with inspiring leadership. I take the latter every time – and so will your employees.
I know this because NO business succeeds in a completely isolated vacuum. The only thing that you’ll find in a vacuum is dust. OK, maybe the occasional button, and your dog’s chew toy that’s been missing since 1982.
But you get my point.
I love what I do – I create Traction not Transaction™
