Stephen’s consultancy initiative is based on a psychodynamic approach to personal and organizational wellbeing, under the guidance of the Institute for Leadership and Transformation, affiliated with the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations (UK). A graduate of the Hebrew University (MA Education) and WITS University (South Africa), Stephen was born and raised in Johannesburg, currently lives with his wife and four children in Jerusalem and is devoted to empowering people to get the most out of their professional and personal lives.
We came to Stephen with a hobby and he guided us in turning it into an organization. In the process we discovered rich resources buried in our hobby and how to harness them in propelling our organization to success. Stephen is a master in the craft of giving his clients voice, language and agency in their initiative. Were it not for Stephen our passion would not have gone beyond something we toy with, instead it is becoming an enterprise that will positively impact the lives of many.

Stephen has instilled in me the meaning of process. Together we have stood up to the Corona Challenge and come out with a long term game plan. My staff and I look forward to every meeting. He is so personable, professional and practical.
Zeev Schwartz, TORAH MITZION
From what started out as a challenge to learn from each other during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic, arose a fantastic educational and learning experience for myself and fellow staff members. As a South African manufacturing company faced with serious economic and social challenges, we came together to deal with leadership and organisational aspects that we ourselves were unable to face and navigate. The result has been a fresh and robust approach to improved communications and a focus on strategic goals. From engaging with Stephen, we now look forward to continuing the journey of growth, both professional and personal.
