Is Steven Right for You?

I don’t work with everyone and you shouldn’t either!

It is important that there is a match between what you want and how I can contribute to your success. Otherwise, you may be wasting your time and resources. If there is a match, we can be very productive and successful.

You’ve got a big job: you need to take a profitable course of action. The organization needs you to succeed. You need to be influential to move minds, resources, and objectives forward.

You don’t want to inadvertently bungle this opportunity. You know you are capable, and you know there are better ways that achieve a hidden upside, greater leverage, and do more with less, faster, and cheaper.

Steven Feinberg’s Advantage-Maker Strategy is for you if you need:

  • To leverage your leadership

  • To rapidly adapt yourself or your team

  • To move the organization forward

  • To become a more influential force

  • To create a profitable course of action

  • Real ongoing advice that gets you to the finish line instead fly-by training that doesn’t work

  • Credible advice and an advisor that has a proven track record

More About Steven

As President of Steven Feinberg, Inc., my major emphasis is on Advantage Maker Strategies which build leadership efficacy – strategic moves that lead to profitable courses of action.

I design and develop advantage-making programs that have turned around organizations, teams, and leaders in multiple industries and business environments.

Using the Advantage-Making principles Steven:

– Multiplied the gain from a sales engagement deal from $200K to $2Million working with the National VP Sales in a half day meeting.

– Turned a business that was losing customers into a repeatable $4 million dollar gain. Using the 5 Perspective-Shifting Advantage-Making Questions, we identified, within 1 hour, the underlying structural conflict, established alignment & improved teamwork , with the CFO’s blessing

– Coached a Director, who was perceived negatively, to establish his executive presence and frame his arguments powerfully. He was  promoted to a VP by the same executives who questioned his contribution.

Steven graduated magna cum laude from State University of New York Buffalo; MSW from Tulane University and a PhD from Professional School of Psychology San Francisco

In developing his Advantage-Maker methodology, Steven has been a shoe-shine boy, newspaper delivery, stock clerk, carnival barker, waiter, coordinator college registration problem solving desk, door man, drug counselor and community organizer, worked in his family owned pizza restaurant, international negotiator, manager, counselor, professor, master’s degree program director, speaker, most importantly father and husband and most amusing a New York City taxi driver.
