Steve formed Engaged Leadership Advisors to work with CEO’s and their leadership teams to drive change and significantly improve performance. He leverages his successful senior level operating experience in both global Fortune 100 companies, mid-size and venture backed companies as well as having advised leaders while at Alvarez & Marsal. Having “sat in the chair” his experience includes driving growth (both organically and via acquisition), leading turn-around situations and changing strategic direction.
Given the breadth and depth of his experience, Steve is able to look at every situation with “Fresh Eyes” – constantly asking questions about why things are the way they are, and more importantly, how they need to be transformed. He engages with CEO’s and their leadership teams to identify and address these issues, allowing organizations to drive transformational change and produce significantly improved performance.
Just miles from the beach, Sears Executive, Steve Goldstein was shocked to find four snowblowers for sale in the Garden Center of their Miami store. Speaking with a salesman, he learned that this was not a one time mistake – they were being shipped to and returned from the same store for thirty years. This one story became a metaphor to Steve for the dysfunction in most companies, large and small.
Whether it’s having snow blowers for sale in a place where it never snows, or a more pervasive issue–like having so many meetings scheduled there’s no time left to actually solve problems–dysfunction within large organizations is so prevalent that most people accept it either as an inevitable fact of corporate life or they assume someone else will deal with it. But must it be this way?
