If you are looking to improve your business, quality of life, relationships or just to feel better look no further than Steven Seay. I hired Steven as a coach for my plastic surgery business after learning about his turn around of an ophthalmology office with five physicians. We started meeting over coffee and sharing. It became clear that he saw what was working at the office and in my life and what areas could be improved upon. Our meetings became hikes or runs where he continued to inspire and reframe the issues I was dealing with. He shed a bright light on my personal issues and brought my curiosity of life back though encouraging engagement in areas of my life that I had taken for granted. He has brought pizzazz and joy back into my practice and life in general. He has helped me remember why I went into the career of medicine and what piqued my interests.
I wish you much success in your journey and encourage you find a coach who can help enrich your life. It has been much more effective than the mountains of self-help motivational books and business management texts I have read over the years.

Before working with Steve, I had the slightest idea of what coaching means and how it would benefit me. I was even oblivious as to how coaching is different from counseling. Steve has not only shown me how I could be a better person but also, through coaching, how I could be the best version of who I really am professionally and otherwise.
Steve is always approachable, energetic, positive, encouraging, and sharing a plethora of very useful strategies so that I can maximize my potential at work and at home. Much more than a mentor, I consider him a friend, an ally, a confidant, sometimes even a therapist, but most importantly he is always rooting for me to be myself.

Before working with Steve, every important "piece" of my life was separate, and I felt overwhelmed by the balancing act that it took to maintain it all. I was trying to manage a growing business, jumpstart a new business, be a good husband, friend, leader, disciple, and so much more. That's hard to do without direction and guidance. After 6 months I've seen rapid (and intentional) growth in all of those life pieces: my businesses, marriage, relationships, and personal leadership. Steve equips me with the tools and guidance that's needed for me to meld the important pieces into a single mission and purpose. I've seen tangible results in every component of my life, and none of it would be possible without Coach Steve. THANK YOU STEVE!!! For helping me flourish in my business, marriage, faith, and life.

As a busy primary care physician, mom of 2 and wellness lead for my module, I feel like I have tried every self care/ wellness / burnout prevention class/ technique known to man. Steve has helped me incorporate all these things to help me individually and introduced me to other techniques I had never heard of. Nothing has helped me as much as working with Steve this last year.

Steve has been the best financial investment I’ve committed to in a long time. Not only has Steve helped me in my own business, but in my personal life as well. His energetic and professional attitude have helped me gain confidence and keep me committed to my life goals. The positive advances I’ve made in my life the last two years have been incredibly rewarding thanks to Steve’s outstanding life coaching. A teacher, a trainer, your boss all keep you on task, but imagine your life with a coach. A coach who helps keep you accountable to your own created goals in life. Life coaching with Steve will be the best investment you can make in YOURSELF ever!

Working with coach Steve has been a rewarding experience. As a newer attending in a high-volume practice our work on a establishing a personal mission statement, long term goal setting, and energy management have been very useful. This work will hopefully serve myself, my family, and my patients in the years ahead and reduce the chances of me becoming the burnt-out physician whom we all encounter far too frequently.

Coach Steve has been a wonderful addition to my medical team. I say this because he is an important and integral part of my office now (just as important as the rest of my daily office staff and nurses). Coach Steve reminds me of those inspirational posters! Remember the posters that say "Challenge" and "Success" and "Teamwork". He brings all these attributes to work everyday and inspires me and my office to work better and live harder. He has helped my office grow leaps and bounds in many areas and helps us provide exceptional quality care to our patients. I really appreciate the opportunity to learn and grow and improve my job performance under Coach Steve's guidance. More importantly, our relationship has grown above and beyond his work with me in my medical practice. His example has influenced my personal health and wellness and fitness outside the office. Coach Steve is the complete package and I am grateful to have him on my team!

I was introduced to Stephen Seay through the Joy of Medicine program offered through the Sacramento Valley Medical Society. I had all the symptoms of burnout, I was unhappy in my private and professional life and it showed in my interactions with people at work. Anytime I would have a difficult day, it would seem magnified and somehow insurmountable. I felt angry, drained, unsupported and alone in my struggle. I went on the Joy of Medicine website and found Stephen’s profile, and loved the fact that he would come to see me. Travelling elsewhere to get help seemed to magnify the burden. The first time we met, we talked for over an hour and a half. In that short time, he listened to me and my litany of things I had to complain about. He then helped me see the positives in my professional life that had gotten buried, and turned a little switch in my head that allowed me, after that first session, to see the events that I perceived as battles and endless struggles, instead as challenges to be met and overcome. Since then, we have met fairly regularly, and I really feel that his coaching has made a huge difference in my resilience. People around me, especially staff in my office, have really appreciated the change. I can still sometimes feel overwhelmed, but my attitude about it has changed: I know I can deal with it, and I can roll with the punches so much more easily now.
