When I initially contacted Steve Borek, I was having trouble relating to my Gen Y coworkers. Steve helped me look at my leadership style, develop an action plan and stick to benchmarks I set for myself. I went from feeling like Eore in Winnie the Pooh to being more dynamic and authentic in my workplace.
