Workforce Solutions & Employee Wellness: In the Weeds: The What, Why, and How of Managing Stress in a stressful industry
Dr. Steve is a licensed and board certified counseling psychologist. He has specialized expertise in sport and performance psychology. A former football player at The Ohio State University, Steve found out first hand the mental, physical, and emotional requirements necessary to perform at a high level. After graduation, Steve attended the University of Akron where he received his PhD in Counseling Psychology and crafted his educational and applied capacity to help individuals and teams harness mental fitness.
Fast forward 10+ years, Steve has honed this skillset through various endeavors - as a professor and researcher of psychology, college Dean, national presenter, University sport psychologist, leadership consultant, entrepreneur, golf caddy, and rock band singer.
So whether you are an athlete, artist, entrepreneur, or executive, the ability to manage stress and leverage the mental aspect of performance is paramount in pursuing the quest of reaching one’s fullest capacity. Though we can cover a lot of ground on our own, sometimes it’s value-added to have a side-kick supporting the journey along the way.
