A Personal Note from Lynn

Life is meant to be fully expressed. Resistance, lack of awareness, and doubt constrain us from reaching our full potential. In order to be truly free, successful, creative, passionate, healthy and excited about life, one must be willing to open the door to that part of the self which observes is fearless, loving, limitless, needless and eternal. From this place we are not reacting to our emotions and experiences, but rather consciously choosing our path. In doing so, enormous possibilities emerge from one’s greatest vision.

-Lynn

Stephano Stulic

Stephen “Stephano” Stulic, Vice President, Personal & Professional Coach

With over 40 years of experience building and leading profitable businesses, Stephano brings his seasoned business acumen, sage wisdom and insights to his coaching practice, helping his clients make inspired choices leading to more significant and generous outcomes, both personally and professionally. His approach is laced with a “Hell Yeah, You Can” attitude. 

He believes we live in the most fortunate of ages, an exceptional time in history, when the preponderance of new information is changing the depth and width of useful understanding. Science and technology are constantly proving new theories, breaking down barriers and providing access to new premises and evidence of what can be. We are at the threshold of the most promising of new beginnings, for by blending new knowledge with enduring philosophies and truths that have come down to us through the ages, we can create an ever-widening stream of awareness and exciting new opportunities.

Stephano argues that true organizational and individual success is not an accident, but instead, a direct result of being inner driven, embracing extremes and taking extensive action. He is exceptional at challenging individuals and organizations to aspire to a higher standard, sparking change and excitement while moving them ever closer to realizing greater rewards. His seasoned skills and knowledge in leadership, talent and organizational development, change management, executive coaching, consulting, and strategic development are considerable and relevant, acquired through direct experience as a corporate executive and successful entrepreneur.

 In addition to consulting and coaching he is a speaker and the author of a book that offers a fresh outlook on career development. The Spiritualization of Career Development is a must read for those truly looking for authenticity and fulfillment in their career. His first novel is near completion. Described as gritty metaphysically infused fiction it deals with the hard core real life conflicts people face trying to find their place in the world.

Personal Sketch

Becoming more of who you are in a world that wants you to stay where you are is not for sissies. Believe me, I know. I have the bumps and bruises to prove it…Born in curiosity, I have a passion for books, writing stories that explore ideas and suspicions that cross my mind in the dark of night, music of all genres, impressionist art and homemade cookies… I prefer Baseball over gladiator sports… I used to get a thrill sliding head first into home plate, but I don’t do that too much anymore. The most magnificent sunrise I ever saw was in the African bush… I have a special interest in 19th century literature, quiet reflection, Modigliani and Hemingway… I know a lot about comic book super heroes, making homemade cleaning products, divorce, Renaissance music and Sherlock Holmes. I have serious gaps in other areas… I’m a very good Italian peasant cook… Played jazz trumpet at enough weddings to know it wasn’t my calling… I believe in Old Dogs Learning New Tricks… Through the years, I had occasions where I zigged when I should have zagged, but to paraphrase Emerson, “All life is an experiment, and the more you make, the better.”
