Steve Chandler is known as America’s notoriously unorthodox personal growth guru who has helped thousands of people transform their lives and businesses. Steve gives us a choice: either continue to think of ourselves as victim, or take ownership of our lives and extend our possibilities in limitless directions.
Steve is a Master Coach of Coaches and founder of the Steve Chandler Coaching Prosperity School, which had a successful run from 2008 to 2012, when it closed in December to allow him to focus on new projects, the most exciting of which is USM’s SCPC Program.
Steve’s transformational success coaching, public speaking, and business consulting have been used by CEOs, top professionals, major universities, and over 30 of the Fortune 500 companies. He has twice won the national Audio of the Year award from King Features Syndicate. A popular guest on TV and radio talk shows, Steve Chandler has recently been called “the most powerful public speaker in America today.”
Known for his strength, charisma, and humor, Chandler has been captivating audiences with his transformational facilitation for more than two decades. He is also the prolific author of dozens of books, which have been translated into more than 30 foreign language editions and six of which have been bestsellers.
Steve graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Creative Writing and Political Science. He spent four years in the military studying language and psychological warfare; however, he credits his own life experiences with failure as the most valuable tools for helping others. Steve’s audiences are inspired by stories of his “low points”—they give them hope because they realize that if Steve can transform his life into a masterpiece, so can they.
Steve served as a visiting faculty member for the University of Santa Monica Soul-Centered Leadership Program and has been a trusted advisor to the University and its graduate community for a number of years.
Steve and his wife, Kathy, live outside of Phoenix, Arizona, with their canine companion, Jimmy. Steve’s four children are grown and happy to be living in Arizona as well. Steve and Kathy enjoy performing at musical events and traveling together to many of Steve’s speaking engagements around the world.
