At the core of every successful business, nonprofit, association, family or friendship group, is a strong community. But what does that mean? It’s more than just good people who seem to like each other. It’s more than just having everyone on the same page with the vision.

In this engaging keynote talk, Steve expertly explains the critical elements of community and the secret sauce that holds it all together. Especially in the days of COVID-19 and political tension, we are all extremely vulnerable to division. Steve not only teaches how to build powerful community but explains the steps you can take to remove your vulnerability to division. Further, Steve challenges his audiences to start seeing Community Building as a mindset; a paradigm shift leading to greater levels of fulfillment in all areas of life.

As a Keynote Speaker and community building expert, Steve offers the secrets he has learned from more than 30 years of creating building teams inside Fortune 500 companies, nonprofit movements, and communities fueled by his podcasts.
