Leadership Evolution (Steven Morris)

  • Episode #63

Steven Morris began studying human behavior as a newspaper delivery boy. Combining his love of social sciences and art, he created a sophisticated and thriving marketing business. He believes that the best leaders are those who grow as much inside the business as outside of it.

Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it.

Steven Morris is a speaker and consultant and the founder of Matter Consulting. He loves helping business leaders build trusted brands that lead to future success.

“Typically what needs to happen within organizations is the leaders need to evolve. Better humans make better business leaders.”

– Steven Morris
