You Can Use Trial and Error... If You Want
You have a few choices... You can continue to go it alone, and it will definitely take you longer and there will be mistakes along the way.
Or you can take the rocket, and gain experience without making potentially career-damaging mistakes along the way.
You typically have a window of two to three years to break out of your current position and leap-frog your career. It's important for you to have someone to guide you to make the changes you need to make to achieve your success.
Take it from a C-Level executive who began as an engineer and scientist. I've been through the career hurdles and as a highly acknowledged technical career expert, I know what it takes to activate your true potential so you can quickly advance in your career, break from the middle of the pack, and impact your team like never before.
I'm here to help you advance from wherever you are. Go from being an unheard team member to an influential communicator.
Meet Steven Cerri
I'm an engineer (BS, Aeronautical Engineering), scientist (MS, Geophysics), and businessman (MBA). I know what it takes to build an awesome and sustainable career.
I've spent my career in engineering and scientific organizations and companies. I've been part of the start-up team of two multi-million dollar technical companies (one a government contractor in systems integration and the other a commercial printer company). I've worked on the Space Shuttle, deep space probes, and weather satellites as a orbital flight performance engineer and a systems engineer.
My career has advanced from:
- Engineer (Individual contributor)
- Scientist (Ocean-floor research scientist)
- Lead Engineer
- Director of Engineering
- Vice President of Engineering
- Chief of Operations
- General Manager/CEO
In order to create a career that continuously advances (in the way you want it to) you must be more than technical and that means you must up your game in three areas: 1) Your Mindset; 2) Your Communication; and 3) Your Influence.
Even if you don't want to go into management and you want to stay technical throughout your career, remember:
We get hired for our technical capability and to do technical work, but at some point organizations want more from us. If you don't know how to add that additional component, your career can get stuck in the middle of the pack with no opportunity for real growth and success.Let's Get Started

The material Steven taught seemed like unconventional wisdom to me. I’ve seen a lot of different trainers and training programs, and after more than 10 years, I have yet to find anyone else who uses Steven’s style of teaching, coaching, and mentoring.
Within a year of taking Steven’s class I made a big advancement in my company. I moved up into a lead role. Within a year of taking Steven’s class I was given direct reports. I’ve applied the things I learned in Steven’s classes and coaching and mentoring and it’s worked so well.

Associate Dean, Technology Management Programs

He (Steven) is flexible and willing to accommodate the students in ways that shows he truly cares about what they learn. What makes Steven unique and powerfully effective in his teaching for our program is that he combines two technical degrees and an MBA with twenty years of technical and technical business experience. This means that when he teaches technology-business management and leadership, his courses are rooted in practice as well as in theory. Our students truly appreciate this mixture..
