Steve brings his experience as a senior executive coach and many years of leadership experience at IBM, KPMG, and Sass & Associates, Inc.  Steve executes major client engagements, and helps build our brand as we address the growing demands of executive coaching in the global market.

Brian and Steve continue to build the CoachFinder database andWorldwide Management capabilities into the best in the industry. Brian has hired many of these coaches for his large-scale engagements, and is acquainted with and knows by reputation many of the others as well. His network of international connections expands his reach even beyond those currently listed in the CoachFinder database. Brian travels regularly to meet as many coaches as he can along the way.

Brian and Steve work closely with Marshall Goldsmith and many other world-renown practitioners. Brian regularly speaks to and writes for the industry, and has just co-authored Executive Coaching for Results: The Definitive Guide to Developing Organizational Leaders (Berrett-Koehler, 2007).  The book is rooted in High-Impact Executive Coaching research (with Executive Development Associates), one of the industry's most ambitious coaching research projects. He has recently published a book based on this research and coaching best practices.
