STEVE FORAN BIOGRAPHY

Steve Foran (CSP) manages a consulting business focused on behaviour and culture change. Since 2006, it’s grown into working with leaders across Canada to shift culture and help teams bring more gratitude to work each day. In 2017, together with 42 other top-rated speakers from around the world, Steve was awarded the highest earned designation in professional speaking – Certified Speaking Professional.

Steve Foran began exploring the relationship between gratitude and philanthropic giving while completing his Master at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax. Steve has been on the leading edge of gratitude-based research, writing, and teaching for almost fifteen years. His science-based presentation programs are simple, yet innovative approaches to business growth, personal growth and professional growth. With programs like Counting Blessings, Asking Before Assuming, Thanking and Not Expecting, gratitude transforms business cultures into proud, positive, satisfying environments, where people are grateful, productive and ultimately at their best.

An electrical engineer, Foran brings a detail-oriented and thoughtful approach to his working relationships and client engagements. Thriving off of people in search of growth, Steve Foran works with leaders who want to instill an engaging, cooperative culture with their employees. Steve Foran believes that culture starts with gratitude because all of the research points to one simple fact that when it comes to gratitude, “YOUR PEOPLE NEED MORE”. For more than a decade Steve has been speaking to companies, organizations and large groups about the power of gratitude in their work and day-to-day lives.

Steve Foran is a son, brother, husband, father and now, grandfather. He teaches Business Ethics and has written extensively on the subject of gratitude.

On 12 hours’ notice, Steve delivered for our Atlantic Canadian team. I don’t know how he managed to personalize his message to our situation and our needs so quickly, but I thought he was talking about real estate the entire time. His message was impactful and I see it in how our people have been behaving in the weeks that have followed. We are now looking at ways to engage Steve, regionally and nationally, to help our people integrate the principles of persistence and gratitude into our real estate businesses so that Royal LePage Realtors stand out as exceptional delivers of service excellence.

The feedback we received on his Keynote and Breakout Sessions was among the highlights of the conference. Our audience is focused on technology and its management yet appreciated and valued the perspective that Steve was able to share in a way that was relevant to them. In terms of his approach to business, he was highly professional and it was delightful to work with a speaker like Steve who make themselves readily accessible and are easy to work with. I also appreciated his ideas that helped make our conference better and the follow up 3 months later with ideas we can use to improve our conference next year.

Professional Development Summit

As the largest independent engineering company in Northern Ontario, we wanted to celebrate our 20th anniversary in style. We were looking for a professional engineer who could speak about gratitude and appreciation so our team would feel valued and leave feeling good about what they’ve been a part of. While I thought it might be like looking for a needle in a haystack, Steve Foran fit the bill perfectly. While I expected Steve to deliver an engaging and relevant presentation (which he did), but I wasn’t expecting the efforts he took to understand our company so that he could represent us well. He challenged our staff team to step back and look at their world differently and while we have a very appreciative and committed team, Steve gave us a fresh perspective on our collective success that will serve us well into the next 20 years.

In our business, like many others, time to simply stop and reflect can easily get lost amidst deadlines and other demands. Steve Foran’s unique approach to demonstrating both the necessity and the many benefits, both personal and professional, of considering and expressing your gratitude, hit home. The session was well received and sent us on our way with a fresh outlook on the real value of all we have, and some tools to share this renewed perspective with our teams.

As part of a daylong meeting of Healthcare Managers, Steve’s presentation on the “Power of Gratitude” proved to be a great reminder to those in attendance of the importance of appreciation. Our Managers work in a very demanding environment, and Steve, with the use of humour and real-life experiences, reminded all of us to stop and appreciate the contributions of those individuals in our life including co-workers, family and friends. Steve’s easygoing nature in combination with his high-energy style, made the presentation very enjoyable. His ability to engage our staff instead of simply talking to them ensured that everyone had the opportunity to provide feedback and draw on personal experiences. Based on the positive comments I received from those who attended “The Power of Gratitude,” I would highly recommend Steve Foran as a presenter for your organization.
