Steven Chaparro | Keynote Speaker, Storyteller & Strategist

Steven is a multi-disciplinary story- teller and strategist who is passionate about seeing transformation in leaders, organizations, and society. As a story- teller, he is the creator and host of The RESHAPED PODCAST and has been invited to national stages to speak on the topics of creativity, transformative experience, and spatial storytelling. As a strategist, he has guided executive leaders and their organizations through cultural transformation. "Steve’s talk inspired the shop in a way no other guest speaker has. His content was smart, he was funny, and he brought fresh thinking to design principles that inspire the solving the universal human need for connection.” - Nancy Duarte, CEO of Duarte, Inc. _________________ I am a Storyteller and Strategist and I help visionaries redesign the future. STORYTELLING | SPEAKING: As keynote speaker, I am frequently called upon to speak to audiences around the nation to challenge paradigms and explore how design and leadership has the power to transform people, organizations, and societies. Using storytelling and research, I am passionate about delivering messages that do more than just inspire audiences but catalyze them to live different. My Speaking Topics include - * The Architecture of Transformative Experience - This talk explores how an organization can design and deliver experiences for their employees, customers, and partners that more than merely memorable - but are truly transformative by changing the way they think, work, speak, and live. * The Leader as the Cultural Architect - this talk explores one of the most important roles of a leader, that of a cultural architect - one who envisions, designs, communicates, and leads to a better future for their organization. * A Transformational Leader is a Transformed Leader - this talk explores the idea that in order for a visionary leader to transform their organization, they must be personally be transformed themselves. * Hell in the Hallway - this talk is for frustrated visionaries who are stuck in the space between vision and fulfillment in their personal, professional, and corporate lives. Using storytelling and design principles, I provides strategies on how to take a vision from an idea to implementation. _________________ STRATEGY: I work with visionary leaders passionate about impact and intent on transformation. You know them - these are the ones who are leading the organizations, movements, experiences, products, and services that change the way people live. But the truth is that many of them feel frustrated, isolated, and stuck without a roadmap to future. Here's the realization I have learned about leadership - leaders who want to lead organizational transformation must also undergo personal transformation. If this resembles you, I can help you redesign the future - whether it’s becoming the next best version of yourself, transforming your organization, or catalyzing a movement of change in society. (For me, it’s most fun when it includes all three.) I do this by designing strategies for transformation - those that have the power to change how you envision, lead, and communicate. I always take a people-led, purpose-driven, and vision-focused approach - thinking holistically and empathetically. Visionaries who work with me feel that their frustrations are heard and understood, are equipped to communicate a focused vision, and are armed with a roadmap to lead change that makes an impact. With transformation design, I help visionaries redesign the future with * ORGANIZATION STRATEGY - Its sobering to realize that what brought you success today will not bring you success tomorrow. Your organization has a lifecycle that requires both the repositioning of today and the creation of a new tomorrow to avoid decline, and ultimately, death. As an Organizational Strategist, I help you redesign your organization and business models, products, and services which are redesigned to create innovative value propositions and transformative customer experiences. * BRAND STRATEGY - Your brand is much more than flashy design or a well-written story. It’s about the emotional resonance people have when they experience your brand, products, and services. As a Brand Strategist, I help to advance and scale inspiring visions into a remarkable brand through effective brand development, communications, and creative services. * COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGY - Transformational leaders are the ones who know how to move people along on a path from vision to implementation. They are the best at telling persuasive stories that greet people with empathy and launches them into a preferred future. As a Communications Strategist, I help you compel your audience in seasons of change - whether it is a single, inspiring moment or mobilizing people consistently over time. Working with you to lead better, we can help your organization overcome the barriers that stand between your today and your vision for a better tomorrow. * WORKPLACE STRATEGY - The great companies focus on both the customer experience and the employee experience. They understand that their cultural values should determine how they design their environment, but also that their environment has the power to shape their culture. As a Workplace Strategist, I help you align the story of your organization with your workspaces with strategies that inform space planning, interior design, environmental design, architecture, and landscape architecture. LET'S CONNECT: I would love to connect with you as your embark on your own journey of transformation.
