I provide a safe place for my clients to explore who they really are. The basis of my practice is to actively listen to my clients, providing the ideal environment to get to the heart of the matter. Coaching is an effective approach to uncover belief systems, then focus on the transformation of your thoughts into action and measurable results. I am not an expert on your life. I don't know what is best for you nor do I think I do. My expertise is in listening. I listen for your greatness, your blocks, your beliefs, your wants, needs, unmet needs, goals and aspirations. I am listening to your "mental construct" or “personal operating system”. These are the tools I use to support you in achieving a higher level of self-awareness.
I have been an entrepreneur since 1978. I am highly knowledgeable in small business and can offer a large contribution in this arena. I assist in startup business issues as well as cash flow, management, customer service, leadership and business retention. I have owned and managed large amounts of real estate and can assist in all aspects of buying, selling and financing. I currently work with CEO's, COO's, CFO's in several Fortune 50 companies. I am able to offer coaching and consulting, or a combination of the two depending on the needs of my clients.

A passion and love of mine is health and nutrition. I am well suited to assist and support you in adopting a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable. It is not about dieting but rather about mindset.

Thus, we will explore your mind and then together we will design a program that specifically matches your individual needs. Here are just a few areas that I can support you with:

You can add "laser coaching" to your existing business model, enhancing your current skill set, and hence making you that much more effective in your current role as a coach. The idea of laser coaching is to get to the heart of the matter in a shorter period of time (15-20 minutes) than a traditional 30-55 minute coaching session. Your prospective client(s) or existing client(s) will experience the distinction between you and others they may have shared their challenge(s) with and this results with a further engagement with you. In the absence of this distinction, the probability of a continuation of the partnership goes down. As the impact and efficacy of your coaching goes up, the likelihood of referrals of your past, current and future clients will as well. The intent of this program is to sharpen your current coaching skills and bring you to a higher level of mastery.
All intellectual property I share with you becomes yours to keep.
Also provided in this Laser coaching program at no additional cost are a number of assessments that can be saved and used for your future clients. These are a very valuable set of tools for any coach to help determine many qualities and strengths of their clients. I will also provide you with the following:

One of the best decisions I ever made was hiring Stew as my mentor coach, and I worked with him for several years after my coach training. Whether you are looking for a mentor, or simply a masterful coach, he is the real deal. I'm extremely grateful to have someone in my life who can bring the patience, care, curiosity and clarity that Stew brings to every conversation. Coaching with Stew goes beyond achieving your goals - it is an experience and relationship I value immensely.
I was referred to Stew by a close friend. I am extremely grateful. I consider my time with Stew to be the most significant step in my evolution over the passed year. I would highly recommend Stew as a life coach. His guidance and expertise provide the shortest distance between obstacle and success. One hour with Stew and your destination will be within reach.
I have been coached by Stew on and off (mostly on) since I became a coach 15 years ago. He has mentored me from my first curiosity about the field of coaching right up to obtaining my PCC and beyond. He listens with an open heart, helps me let go of limiting beliefs, and has been a true supporter throughout my career as a coach. Our coaching sessions always center around what I need to talk about. They are insightful, educational, and we shared lots of laughs along the way. Perhaps Stew’s greatest strength lies in his ability to listen without judgment for an unmet need, an unconscious limiting belief or a cognitive distortion. With Stew on my side my competence and confidence as a coach has grown. I can’t recommend him enough!
Stew has been my coach for many years and truth be told, will no doubt be, for many more. I continue to upgrade both my personal life and coaching practice because of our work together. Yes, Stew is professional and knows his stuff, but it is his relentless pursuit of holding me to a higher version of myself that makes him different. His laser-like kind, compassionate, and sometimes witty delivery of coaching, is what makes me want to continue working with him. He is adamant about helping me unearth my truth, what makes me me, and then helping me offer that to others via my professional life coaching practice and my personal relationships. Stew is the best of the best! And it is without reservation, I highly recommend him as both a Life Coach and Mentor Coach.
Stew is a phenomenal coach and mentor. He is not only the most skilled coach I've ever worked with but he is also a gem of a human being. He has been my mentor and personal coach for years now, because he knows exactly when to gently inquire and listen and when to challenge me. I know I am a better person & coach because of his coaching and guidance. And for certain I am happier and healthier! Thank you Stew!!
For over two years I worked and received training with Stew.I cannot recommend a better instructor or companion in discovery.He was not only an amazing ally and mentor, but a genuine loving person who listened and was present.He helped me find that it wasn't about what needed to be corrected in my life (though it's important to know).I found myself searching for more than just the roles I played in relationships, my career and my physical self. I am forever grateful for his patience, knowledge and compassion.Thank you Stew for all you do.
Stew is a master practitioner. Equal parts spiritual guide, leadership coach, and personal mentor, Stew is helping me become the best possible version of myself. A generous, wonderful, and extremely talented human being, I am so grateful to have him in my life.
One of the best calls I ever made was to my coach Stew Berman. I was very stuck. His coaching helped me move forward in many aspects of my life. I am forever grateful. Thank you Stew
Stew is a masterfully skilled coach. In a short time, he assisted me in identifying my core values, which paved the way to clarity of purpose and a plan for change. He was 150% invested in the process and readily available along the way.
Stew Berman has a wonderful combination of pragmatism, spirituality, and heart. As my coach, he consistently delivered excellent support, insight, caring and coaching expertise on every coaching call I had with him. I have recommended him to everyone I know that wants to be the best version of themselves they can be.
Stew Berman: Soft spoken, great listener, powerful questions.
