Welcome, I’m Steven Cerri.
The mission of STCerri International is to train engineers, technical managers, and other technical professionals in the inter-personal people skills, the soft skills of:
- interpersonal communication
- team participation and team building
- transition from engineer to manager
- management, leadership, and influence
- NLP non-verbal communication processes
My training and mentoring are all intended to significantly increase the productivity and effectiveness of technical organizations. STCI is unique because I have been through the transition process from technical professional to organizational leader and entrepreneur. This experience and real-world information assist in the training and mentoring of engineers and technical managers who may be hesitant to appreciate the need for soft skills in their everyday work environment.
You will notice that this website is titled STCerri International and Steven T Cerri. STCerri International is obviously the corporate name, but just to be clear this website and this company are exclusively about me and my work. Although I do have associates that assist me in support functions, I personally do all my own facilitation, mentoring, and consulting. I don’t farm out my work or use associates for delivery. I consider what I do so specialized that, frankly, I don’t trust others to do what I do the way I do it nor as well as I do it. As an engineer, scientist, and businessman who has spent my life developing my experience, capabilities, and materials, while this may sound like ego speaking, it is just my perception of fact.
I facilitate/train, mentor, speak, write, and teach engineers and technical managers, the skills they were not taught in college, the skills of effective inter-personal communication, management, and leadership. Effective inter-personal communication is the foundation of all individual and group motivation, leading to effective management, and leadership. I have conducted trainings all over the world, including China, Italy, and England, as well as throughout the United States.

I can’t even begin to tell you how important I think this whole topic is. As engineers and engineering managers, steeped in the idea that “data rules” and that “human, interpersonal stuff” is just so much “touchy-feely nonsense”, it is critical that our technologists and technical managers learn to communicate, manage, lead, and relate to others effectively. As technology continues to accelerate, as the world shrinks, and as work-borders dissolve, our ability to relate to each other and communicate effectively within the world of technology will become more and more critical.
I founded STCerri International in 1992. STCI is a California corporation and has been from it’s inception.
I hope you find this website and the information included interesting, unusual, provocative, and beneficial. If you have any questions, comments, or interest in my work, I look forward to talking to you.
