With Steve's 30 years of experience in business and management, he has the ability to connect with Executives and business owners to help them identify blind spots they aren't aware of. By doing this, he creates a game plan and strategy to take their companies to the next level. Steve is a great communicator and understands what it takes for leaders in an organization to overcome obstacles that are holding them back. More...

Steve helped me develop strategies to overcome challenges with managing an unmotivated employee. I learned skills on how to make someone proactive by showing the value in the work and how to make someone think ahead by asking questions. I also learned what should be discussed in a debriefing, such as technical ability and personal involvement. Thank you, Steve, for guiding me on the path to becoming a great manager and leader.

I attended Steve’s “Boost Your Management Clout” seminar because I have heard from his clients how helpful he has been to them, and I wanted to learn more about his coaching process and the information he shares. Steve reminds the audience of the keys to effectively work with people to make good things happen. I especially appreciate that he conveys principles of being authentic and acting with integrity when dealing with people. I also found the guidance he provides and the importance of giving honest and constructive feedback when having tough conversations to be particularly helpful. Steve conducts his seminars in an interactive manner that fosters engagement with the audience. I highly recommend Steve’s work to business owners and managers who are interested in their transformation into confident, decisive world class success stories. More...

We're a small business on the verge of expanding and taking our business to the next level. Steve came in and listened attentively to what our business was all about and what our needs were. Over the next few months he delivered to us suggestions and tools that will help us achieve our goals. He is very knowledgeable and understanding to a small business's challenges and gave us some very well thought out recommendations. I would recommend Steve and Growth Source to any small business who's hit the wall on growth and needs or wants to break on through to the other side. More...

Steve Smith is great! I've been a business owner for years and I finally decided I needed help and Steve came recommended from a couple network friends of min. We met for breakfast and I felt very comfortable with Steve and his manner was a good fit for my Type A personality. He is calm and knowledgeable and has helped me tremendously. I feel more focused and productive than I have in years, really. I'm glad Steve is a resource in my life now. More...

Thank you Steve. Anyone who seeks Steve's knowledge and follows the advice would greatly benefit from it. More...

To say Steve Smith is just a business coach wouldn't do him justice. Steve is not just a business coach. He exemplifies what it means to coach you in your business. I first met Steve in my BNI group and over time learned a lot about what he did and how he could help my business. I took his advice for granted and it wasn't until he sat down with me did I really begin to understand how Steve could help me. I was on a path headed to nowhere until he literally steered me back on course and actually told me I should start my own business. I didn't even know I had a business idea in front of me but Steve saw it plain as daylight and I began coaching with him.  He was GPS for my business and I couldn't thank him enough for taking the time to see what I couldn't see. What makes Steve stand out from the countless other business coaches you'll find is that he truly cares about the success of your business. He will spend countless hours finding new ideas, marketing plans, and strategies that will take your business to the next level. That's more than what I can say for others in his profession. If you truly want your business to succeed and take it to the next level, then look no further than Steve Smith. More...

The challenge of diagnosing and guiding business professionals to a higher level of performance, confidence and satisfaction at work.
