Meeting Stephen Adams is like discovering an unexpected glimpse of gold inside a treasure chest. If you jump on a 30-minute call with him, you’d expect to be talking facts, figures and future projects. Whilst that will certainly be the agenda, with an agreed action plan at the end, you’ll also leave the meeting feeling strangely rejuvenated, uplifted and appreciated. Steve has a way of turning any interaction into a positive one, possessing the unusual ability to weave golden thread through a typically sour scenario. It’s that innate human power to transform those around him to be better by injecting charisma, curiosity and charm into everything he says and does.
This didn’t happen by accident. Behind the magic lies a decided dedication to inner growth. In 2019, Steve had worked at his corporate job for more than 26 years. Whilst extremely successful in that environment, Steve realised that there was a lot more to learn about life itself. After leaving his role, Steve undertook a journey to transforming his values and behaviours to be more aware of inclusion, respect and community. This was a truly formative year for Steve.
“I truly believe we are going to make mistakes as humans. The success to be a better human is what you learn from the experience and how you improve your values and behaviours.”
So that’s how Steve turns mistakes into miracles.
