Stephen Shedletzky helps leaders listen to and nurture the voice of others. He supports humble leaders — those who know they are both a part of the problems they experience and the solutions they can create — as they put their people and purpose first.
A sought-after speaker, coach, and advisor, Shedletzky has led hundreds of keynote presentations, workshops, and leadership development programs around the world. As a thought leader on psychological safety in the workplace, he supports leaders and organizations in all industries where human beings work. He is the author of the forthcoming book, Speak Up Culture, to be published in October 2023.
After years on a corporate track, Shedletzky was introduced to and inspired by the work of Simon Sinek and, soon after meeting him, became the fourth person to join his team. For more than a decade, Shedletzky has contributed at Simon Sinek, Inc., where, as chief of staff and head of brand experience, training, and development, he headed a global team of speakers and facilitators. Shedletzky continues to speak and facilitate with Sinek helping to create a more inspired, safe, and fulfilled world.
Shedletzky graduated from the Richard Ivey School of Business with a focus on leadership, communication, and strategy. He also received his coaching certification from The Co-Active Training Institute.
