Dr. Stevens, Founder and President
An established authority on the psychology of leadership and the technology of personal and organizational transformation, Cleve W. Stevens, Ph.D. has been formally engaged in the field of leadership development for more than 20 years. He has served as an advisor and leadership development consultant to top business leaders and Fortune 500 companies in North America, Europe and Asia. Dr. Stevens has taught leadership and business leadership at the graduate and undergraduate levels at the University of Southern California, Beijing University (China) and North Eastern University (China).
Having studied and worked with Warren Bennis, and modeling much of his work on the transformational thinking of James MacGregor Burns, Dr. Stevens has dedicated his practice (Owl Sight Intentions, Inc.) to bringing about a fundamental change in how we think about and actually do business. Consequently, Owl Sight Intention’s commitment is to create authentic, powerful, even enlightened leaders, leaders who are unafraid to connect their leadership in the corporate domain with the impact they invariably have on the lives of their employees at work, at home and beyond, leaders that have the courage and character to imagine and cause a more compelling, more productive, and more sustainable business paradigm. Dr. Stevens says, and has the results to prove, that when leaders place their highest value on the professional and personal development of themselves and their people, they can expect success beyond their wildest imaginings.
“What we find,” he says “is that when this transformative growth model is effectively implemented, first, employee satisfaction goes through the roof; second, customer satisfaction follows and goes through the roof; and finally the bottom- and top-lines improve in ways that are almost mind-bending.” This emphasis on encouraging powerful leadership – leadership that settles for nothing less than extraordinary results – is proving to be the hallmark of Dr Stevens’ leadership and executive development practice.
Dr. Stevens holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Irvine, a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. in Social Ethics and Leadership Development from the University of Southern California. Dr. Stevens first book will be published July 2nd, 2012: The Best in Us: People, Profit, and the Remaking of Modern Leadership (Beaufort Books)
