|About the Speaker
Steve Gandara has spent over 3 decades helping leaders create High Performance Business
Cultures. He is a highly skilled business culture architect, effective leadership mentor, dynamic
speaker and an amazing business consultant. His unique ability to combine the science and art
of leadership with all the complex pieces of the organizational puzzle to produce specific,
actionable clarity ensures his clients achieve great successes. Clients praise his expertise in
helping them devise strategies that build leaders and cultures that make up the rapid, dynamic,
flexible and aggressive teams demanded in today's global economy.
Steve developed Excellent Cultures' unique, four-step Breakthrough Culture process that has
become a fully tested and proven strategy for fast sustainable results and record return on
investment for his clients. Since 1976 he has served clients including Fortune 500 corporate
executives, business owners, entrepreneurs, labor-union leaders, sales executives, members of
the clergy as well as educators, as a professional leadership mentor and business culture
architect. More than three decades of executive and leadership coaching, business consulting
and mentoring experience have provided Steve with an abundance of real-world applications for
his formal education from the University of Oklahoma and Texas Christian University in business
administration, economics, marketing, management and leadership.
In spite of extensive travel to serve clients, Denise, Steve's wife of four decades, two natural and
nine adopted children remain his highest priorities. When not meaningfully engaged with family
or clients, Steve has served in volunteer positions as a high school youth mentor, school board
member, licensed foster parent, minority scholarship fundraiser, church board president, social
service charity board chairman and College Board of Regents chairman. Steve has also taught
college classes in entrepreneurial leadership.
