Stephen Shedletzky

Head of Brand Voice, Igniter, Simon Sinek’s Start With Why

Stephen supports leaders to create environments where their people feel inspired, safe and valued at work, and fulfilled at the end of the day. In his engaging and dynamic style, he speaks, leads workshops and coaches leaders and organizations to discover, articulate and live their WHY – their Just Cause.

We have a crisis of leadership. The vast majority of people all over the world do not love the work they do. When we do not feel cared for, we are all the more likely not to care for others.

By 2025, 75% of the workforce will be millennials - a generation that is grossly misunderstood and misled. 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.

He joined Simon Sinek’s team in 2012 by answering fan email and now leads Brand Voice. Stephen is committed to ensuring that Team Simon Sinek and those they serve live their WHY from the inside out. He also co-hosts and co-produces the Start With Why Podcast, downloaded in over 180 countries.

Stephen graduated from the Richard Ivey School of Business with an HBA, focusing on leadership, communication and strategy. He has received leadership and coaching training from the Coaches Training Institute. Stephen travels all over the world and has worked with clients in industries ranging from aerospace, automotive, banking, consumer products, education, financial & professional services, government, healthcare, hospitality, law enforcement and real estate. Stephen lives in Toronto, Canada with his wife and daughter.
