What I Do
When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them that I work with fun and interesting people who are successful and want to improve some facet of their life. It could be the top producer with record sales but has no life outside the office or a business leader who feels unfulfilled despite their success. The advisor is trying to build their team but spinning their wheels and not sure why?
Who it’s For
My coaching is for top producers and business leaders who understand that coaching is for the top performer players in business, just as it is in athletics, music and theater. The most successful players, the greats, understand “fundamentals are real.” The basics are the foundation of every successful business and business person, athlete, and performer.
These professionals understand that creating real long-term success is believing in themselves and the basics at a deep gut level. One of the mantras at SCG is to “Never get bored with the Basics” based on a story from Kobe Bryant. It brings balance and enjoyment back into your life along with financial success.
What You Can Expect
As a coach, it is important to understand your struggles, your successes, and your vision. Tell me about your vision.
I don’t presume to know what is best for you; you have the expertise. You have forgotten more about your business than I will ever know.
Clients come for coaching for a myriad of reasons. They want to talk about those successes, failures, and limiting beliefs. Many times clients have achieved a high level of success and want to keep pushing to move up. Sometimes clients are stuck and want to feel better or make a change. What are the challenges keeping you from the next level? I want to know more about that.
I worked with a business owner with an extraordinary vision but not sure what it was going to take to move forward. We discovered they knew exactly what to do but needed some help to take that first step and commit. We needed to break through the fear that was holding them back.
What clients really want is to be more productive, be more successful, and have more balance in their lives. They often know how to execute that vision but want a sounding board, someone to bounce their ideas off to gain the confidence they are doing the right way. What limiting beliefs might be holding you back?
Have these thoughts or feelings ever kept you up at night?
- You are very successful, feeling bored, want to get re-energized, or make a change.
- You have had a taste of real success and are ready to take the next step up.
- You have had success, but doubts or limiting beliefs seem to be holding you back (e.g., not good enough, fear of failure).
- You want to feel calmer, whole, fulfilled, confident. You are constantly comparing yourself to peers and up.
- Are you enjoying solving problems or growing your business?
If you are having these types of thoughts or questions, let’s have a conversation. It’s complimentary and let’s find out about each other’s stories.
I know fear is an obstacle for some people, but it is an illusion to me. Failure always made me try harder the next time.

Steele Coaching Group
My career in business, sports coaching and love of learning has allowed me to learn from a numerous mentors and viewed our business world from a variety of systems various perspectives. The Steele Coaching Group utilizes the Reflective Inquiry Method of coaching. At he core of Reflective Inquiry is belief in the client thinking. That by making reflective statements and questions, as coaches, we are able to draw out the skills and creativity and solutions from within the client, rather than instruct and advise.
As we both know, it is more than just exposing you to new methods and approaches, it is the combination of your effort, your commitment, and follow-through, that will transform your business and help you grow into the advisor and person you envision.
According to one of sports greatest talents, Michael Jordan, The minute you get away from fundamentals – whether it’s proper technique, work ethic or mental preparation – the bottom can fall out of your game, your schoolwork, your job, whatever you’re doing.”
