Never have the peoples during these times had a greater need for identity and leadership. A clearly defined methodology that has the ability to transform people’s perceptions of themselves, the world around them and their place in that world.

Identity leadership is the highest order of leadership. It is likely to become the “different kind of leadership” that is required in the 21st Century – found in people as high potentials who are aware of their own intentions and identity, who responsibly lead themselves to overcome obstacles in their lives, and, as a result, lead others to succeed in driving organizational growth.

My life’s work has been and will continue to be focused on teaching the value and the process of understanding and embracing identity.”

The teenage years are filled with growth, promise, trials, and tribulations. During this time, one may be faced with life-changing decisions and challenges. And often these dilemmas are not easily answered. In Teens Can Make It Happen: Nine Steps to Success, prominent businessman and author Stedman Graham guides readers to a better understanding of themselves, their strengths, and their desires, while helping them to devise and achieve plans for realizing their visions. In an entertaining and interactive style, Graham bridges the gap between education and the real world, and provides teenagers with the means to boost self-esteem, avoid peer pressure, and handle the daily stresses that come with being a young adult. 

Athletics is a metaphor for life; that’s why Move Without the Ball is not just for athletes. Anyone who has ever been involved in the pursuit of excellence understands the need for dedication, perseverance, and sacrifice. Everyday, young adults are bombarded with images and stories of extreme wealth and fame—be it in sports, music, or Hollywood. Their vision of success can become limited to these areas, and they lose focus on developing other talents and skills. A reality check is in order, because the odds are fifty thousand to one that a student athlete will play in the NBA, and similar odds apply to aspiring singers and actors who expect they will be the next superstar. The upside is that there is a much bigger world out there for young people to explore and succeed in, and Move Without the Ball serves as the guidebook. 


Today, the evidence is everywhere. At no other time in history has there been a greater need or a better opportunity for people to be the leaders of their own lives. It’s time to claim all of our human rights, most especially the freedom to achieve our own, unique potential. 

Freedom is difficult to exercise if we do not define who we are in this world. Success in life is based on our ability and our willingness to be the creators of our futures. Ownership of your life starts with the realization of your identity. This awareness helps you to determine what is relevant to your life so that you can focus on maximizing your opportunities for growth and development each and every day. 

When I learned that all of us are equal because we each have the same 24 hours in a day, the question I was inspired to ask was simple; “What are you doing with your 24 hours?”
