TO BE MESSY IS TO BE HUMAN, and every business has a least one mess. At StepUp Leadership, we know that keeping up with change throws companies into chaos and mess, and what often gets lost is our everyday humanity.

There are many leadership training programs, but StepUp Leadership’s training works! The level of energy and communication at Mozilla got better after their trainings. Better discussions, better Directors meetings. Teams care more about the important things and aren’t caught up in the small stuff. Everyone is committed to getting things done and is doing so. They brought in many different tools and many ways to look at and resolve the issues we were grappling with.
The workshop conducted by StepUp Leadership for my national United Way team…..really hit the mark. It gave the participants new skills and more confidence to ‘lead the room’ from a place of personal strength—regardless of experience level. The workshop was also a great team-building experience; the group had fun, learned what colleagues saw as ‘powerful’ within them as well as how to support and rely on each other when co-presenting. A week later, they had the opportunity to successfully apply these lessons at our national conference of more than 2,000 attendees.

StepUp facilitators are able to create a joyful, honest, permissive-but-respectful environment—this has the effect of stripping away the inhibitions of participants. Unlike other trainings I’ve taken part in, participants learned as a team, while improving as individuals, and the effect on the organization was definitely energizing. I regard working with StepUp Leadership as a milestone in my career development. I believe they have the ability to make any team more self-aware, collaborative and courageous.

Kate and StepUp Leadership have been excellent partners with us in the design of some of our leadership programs. They bring great ideas, knowledge and a commitment to creating an impactful experience that we’ve really appreciated. The programs they build with us remain some of our most highly-rated trainings.
Head of Learning and Development
Mergers and acquisitions are never easy—yet, StepUp Leadership’s keen facilitation and program design were pivotal in bringing leadership together to move us forward to success. The leadership conference participants raved about the interactivity and, more importantly, the significant changes we saw in each other over a day-and-a-half period. I would highly recommend StepUp Leadership, and gladly work with them again, and again and again.
