Steven C. Wilson's Summary

Helping businesses become better is my passion…the why of my professional life

As a Certified Business Coach, I bring over twenty years of results driven leadership, training, and coaching to businesses and business owners, providing an experienced eye for companies on the road to success.

Bottom Line: I help businesses get results

My role as a Business Coach is to coach business owners to improve their business through greater awareness, education of proven strategies and tactics, implement and execution, and finally discipline to stay focused on their goals.Just like a sporting coach, I will make you focus on the game...sales and marketing, hiring and training your team, improving your systems, business development and strategic planning, or financial controls.

My years of experience has prepared me to work alongside business owners helping them get the most out of their people, their processes, their customers, and the products and services they provide. I do this through one-on-one and group coaching & public & private workshops & seminars.

As a Coach, I teach, encourage and challenge. I will teach you how to realize your potential, giving you the knowledge, tools, and vision to take both you and your business to the next level, and to ultimately enjoy the financial and lifestyle benefits that come with it. I will encourage you when you face challenges, push you when you need to press on.

Sole Proprietorship; 1-10 employees; Professional Training & Coaching industry

March 2008Present (6 years 7 months)

Quality Conversations was founded on the principle that quality is not a subject, but rather a way of organizational living and being. It is not to be relegated to the often mysterious worlds of statistics,quality departments, and engineers, but must exist and be embraced by the entirety of an organization if improvement is going to be achieved and more importantly, sustained. QC takes on the challenge of initiating dialogue with local, state, and national experts in many of the well known quality disciplines as well as additional topics and guests of interest. Special thanks to Larry Parah for his work at and for his support of this program.
