Stephen Shedletzky

My WHY is to engage people in meaningful ways so that we live in a more fulfilled world.


Do customers or employees come first?


In his engaging and dynamic style, Stephen speaks, leads workshops and coaches leaders and organizations to discover, articulate and live their Why.

Stephen has worked with clients all over the world in education, aerospace, banking, healthcare, consumer products, hospitality, government and real estate.


As a millennial, Stephen shares what he has learned and experienced to help leaders of millennials and millennials themselves come together to discuss the future of the workforce, challenge assumptions and empathize with one another.


What advice would you give someone who has discovered their Why?


Stephen supports leaders to create environments where their people are inspired to go to work, feel safe and valued, and feel fulfilled by the work they do.

Additionally, he focuses on leading culture, developing products, and improving communication within the Start With Why team to ensure that we bring our Why to life from the inside out.


The Golden Circle - Clarity, Discipline & Consistency

Work-Life Balance

Leaders Put Others First


Stephen’s ability to simplify and challenge is rare if not unique. He has been an invaluable resource in helping me, and the teams with which I work, bring in whole new thinking styles, in a simple way. This has led us to move from good strategy to great. He’s not just a resource for strategy and leadership, he is the personification of them.


Stephen brought us to a greater understanding of our purpose, unique contribution and Why. He’s an exceptional facilitator: clear, simple and inspiring. For our team it was a thought-provoking, valuable and enlightening experience. With Stephen’s guidance, I believe we really found our feet as a team, discovered our Why and the unique contribution we give to others.


Stephen’s session was extremely well received. The salespeople are exposed to the best and brightest trainers, coaches, and speakers. Everyone found they had great takeaway points that they could put into action immediately. I highly recommend Stephen’s work. It is applicable for both product and service industries.
