Steve Smith    

Steve Smith has spent the past ten years exploring how great leaders use ego differently than others- how they work, think, collaborate, and who they are.

 The result of his work, egonomics: eliminating the costs of ego and making it our most valuable asset, will be published in 2007 by Simon & Schuster. Steve has invested more than a decade into the topic and trying to reinvent the way people work. His previous work has been published in 18 languages and 40 countries. He has been featured by Microsoft Live Meeting for two years as leadership faculty, receiving the highest possible ratings. Smith's writing, speaking and business ideas have received acclaim from Tom Peters, Ram Charan, and embraced by such client organizations as Hilton, Disney, Baptist Health Care, Hard Rock Cafe, Cox Communications, American Express, and State Farm. With degrees in management, psychology and expertise in team collaboration and leadership, His success comes from his effort to help companies:

    * build an open-minded culture where change isn't resisted, and business agendas aren't overshadowed by personal        agendas

    * maximize individual talent and organizational strengths by drawing on the strengths of ego and minimizing its        weaknesses

    * cultivate a climate safe enough to share water-cooler honesty during meetings, rather than after-or never

    * effectively deal with the egos of others when it's hurting performance

    * create intense business debate with the intention of progress without the drag of conflict and argument

His business concepts and book have been adopted by several universities across the country as an example of what the real business world is about. He is a founding partner of the management training and consulting firm MarcumSmith, LC.
