Steve's dream is one billion happier people.
While not the typical career path of an Electrical Engineer, he began
exploring the relationship between gratitude and philanthropic
giving while completing my MBA. Since then, he has been writing and
conducting practice-based gratitude research and teaching the
habits of gratefulness—close to fifteen years now. What has
emerged is his science-based program, Gratitude At Work. It's a
simple, yet innovative approach to thriving leadership and business
Steve founded Gratitude at Work in 2007 and started hosting
conversations in my community which have since grown into work
with leaders across Canada and into the United States, shifting
cultures, helping leaders and their teams bring more gratitude to
work each day.
His book, Surviving to Thriving - The 10 Laws of Grateful
Leadership, was named 1 of 8 recommended reads by Greater
Good Science Center at University of California Berkeley and 1
of 5 positive psychology books for a happier 2019 in inc. Also in
2019, He was an inaugural winner of Canada's CEO Trusted Advisor
Awards Program and in 2017, Steve was awarded the highest earned
designation in professional speaking, CSPTM.
Steve is a son, brother, husband, father and relatively newly minted
grandfather. His kids poke fun at his gratitude work (air quotes) as
he is heading to one billion with an on-line community that
gives everyone easy access to the secrets of gratitude and grateful
leadership. Steve is a lifelong resident of Halifax, Nova Scotia and trying
to do his part to make my community a better place to live.
