Steve has learned through experience that in order to truly live life, he must be willing to authentically connect with others. He knows that to be emotionally vulnerable is not a sign of weakness, but is in fact very powerful. Steve believes that there is no greater privilege than to assist others as they create better in their own lives.

Steve is a seminar leader, facilitator, and Certified Professional Co-Active Coach. Steve also has a Masters degree from The University of Pennsylvania's for Applied Positive Psychology (the academic equivalent of an advanced degree for personal development). Steve is a founding member and volunteers on the Board of Directors for Foundations. He has actively participated in and delivered workshops in Canada and the United States for the past 14 years.

Rick really enjoys the "aha" moments - special moments when the light comes on and there is clarity. "I love seeing the light bulb come on for people (myself included). The moment of discovery is one of the best." Rick will come along side you in the pursuit of your next "aha" moment.

Rick has been training, leading, and coaching teams for over 20 years. He is a Certified Professional & Executive Coach (certified by the ICF). I was in sales for six years and then finished my BA at Southwestern Adventist University and my Masters at Andrews University. After school I went into management: University Residence Halls, Retail, Golf Course, and Non-profit.

Other Certifications: Prepare/Enrich©, Personality Dimensions, CVI (Taylor Protocols), Enhanced Skills Practitioner of C-IQ - Conversational Intelligence.

Rick plays tennis and enjoys golf immensely but is much better at strategic board games. He lives in Oregon with his wife Heather, and the owner of the house Cali the cat.
