A personal note from Lynn

StephenStephen “Stephano” Stulic, Vice President, Performance Consultant & Business Coach.
With over 35 years of experience building and leading profitable businesses, Stephano brings his seasoned business acumen, sage wisdom and insights to his consulting practice, helping his clients make inspired choices leading to more significant and generous outcomes, both personally and professionally.

He believes we live in the most fortunate of ages, an exceptional time in history, when the preponderance of new information is changing the depth and width of useful understanding. Science and technology are constantly proving new theories, breaking down barriers and providing access to new premises and evidence of what can be. We are at the threshold of the most promising of new beginnings, for by blending new knowledge with enduring philosophies and truths that have come down to us through the ages, we can create an ever widening stream of awareness and exciting new opportunities.

Stephano argues that true organizational and individual success is not an accident, but instead, a direct result of being inner driven, embracing extremes and taking extensive action. He is exceptional at challenging individuals and organizations to aspire to a higher standard, sparking change and excitement while moving them ever closer to realizing greater rewards. His seasoned skills and knowledge in leadership, talent and organizational development, change management, executive coaching, consulting, and strategic development are considerable and relevant, acquired through direct experience as a corporate executive and successful entrepreneur.

In addition to consulting and coaching he is a speaker and the author of a book that offers a fresh outlook on career development. The Spiritualization of Career Development is a must read for those truly looking for authenticity and fulfillment in their career. His first novel is near completion. Described as gritty metaphysically infused fiction it deals with the hard core real life conflicts people face trying to find there place in the world.
