It’s been my experience, after working one-on-one with over 500 CEO/Founders in the past few years, that the number of great leaders, those individuals who have proven success to lead and guide a large number of people in an impossible endeavor, are easily identified on one hand. At the end of the day it’s all about leadership, and Dr. Steve Constantino, along with my hero, John Wooden, are the BDP. Pull in two or three fingers on that hand and you’ll find the Outliers who not only can lead, but can teach others HOW to lead. Steve, and John, are the fingers still standing.

Steve Constantino is one of the best in the country at getting you working with the families in your schools. His presentations are funny, filled with real stories and you relate to them immediately. You leave one of his talks knowing you can do something to engage your families and when you do, it will make a difference for students.

The minute I heard Dr. Steve Constantino give the keynote speech at our State conference, I knew I needed to get him to our school district. He has a powerful message and is a powerful leader. His work with our district and our leaders transformed the way we do business. He is both passionate and knowledgeable. I recommend him to anyone who not only wants a tremendous experience but also wants to move the needle in their organization.

I have had the great pleasure of seeing Dr Steve Constantino fulfill several roles as a speaker, (in three countries!) both with large gatherings and in smaller seminar groups.
He speaks with authority and wisdom born of experience as a successful practitioner who has ‘done the hard yards’ in an area many educators find difficult navigate.
His lively mix of passion, knowledge, humour and provocation finds the mark with his audience and leaves them with optimism and a sense that the challenging work can be done!

I’m always amazed at the Outliers of Public Speaking; those few communicators who have something extraordinarily important to say, and who say it in such a captivating way that you’re searching TED and iTunes the minute you walk out of the auditorium. Dr. Steve Constantino is on that Outlier list. Constantino combines crucial and timeless topics with humor good enough that Seinfeld would take notes. He drives essential points home with a “Velvet Hammer”, and you’ll never feel so good getting hit so hard.
