Steven Wood

Be Bodacious


From ranch hand to experienced sales strategist, Steven Wood’s professional journey has been anything but ordinary.

Thirty-five years ago, Steven was more comfortable in a pair of cowboy boots, than a pair of dress shoes. While working on a Texas ranch, the last place he envisioned himself was in an auditorium with hundreds of people, teaching them to be better leaders.  But when he heard an internationally-known manufacturer was recruiting lab technicians near his hometown for the Research and Development division, Steven jumped at the chance.

“Sorry, we’re looking for someone with some experience,” said the Chief Engineer.
“I don’t think you understand,” said Steven. “Name your price, and I will be the hardest worker you will find.”  The Chief Engineer accepted Steven’s bold proposal. Today, Steven serves as a member of senior leadership for a sales organization with annual revenue exceeding $1 billion.  It’s the same company who hired him off the farm fields.

During his long tenure, Steven has had the opportunity to work with some of the best business leaders in North America. To motivate and inspire his audiences, Steven began incorporating memorable stories into his leadership and business talks. Seeing the effects of those anecdotes, principles, and life experiences on his audiences, Steven decided to expand his message one step further by putting together a book. Designed to encourage and empower its readers, Be Bodacious: Put Life in Your Leadership is a collection of entertaining tales from the business trenches, and from Steven’s own experiences working as a cowboy.

Leadership is the difference maker and the deal breaker. It's how we grow organizations. It's how we impact lives. But, as you also know, leadership cannot be an idea we simply talk about; leadership is the action we must live out.
