Uncompromising: An Unwavering Commitment to Your FIGHT
Steve White’s remarkable journey from the housing projects to the board room is one of vision, grit and a relentless focus on possibility and purpose.
As one of four boys raised by a single mother, Steve’s life could easily have taken a different path. Instead, armed with his mother’s determination that her sons make a better life for themselves and his own refusal to be shaped by his circumstances, Steve forged a path to extraordinary professional and personal satisfaction and achievement.
Today Steve is not only a son and a brother, but also a husband, father and business leader with responsibility for $18B in annual revenue.
Steve’s lessons from every stage of his life, and the people who influenced him along the way, form the basis of his overarching message: An UNCOMPROMISING life is one where you stay true to what is important to you, what you believe in and what you love.
It leads to more fulfillment, purpose and a lasting legacy.
An uncompromising approach to life means you are fiercely independent, radically responsible, scrappy and possess an undistracted mindset. It also means you have an unwavering commitment to your FIGHT, which is defined by your core values, passion and purpose. You have the courage of your convictions, stay locked-in on your goals, get up when you fall and continue to forge ahead.
As a gifted storyteller who engages audiences with authenticity, humor and humility, Steve’s hard-won insights help your audience FIND THEIR FIGHT–what matters most–and where they can make the biggest difference.
Universally relatable and inspiring, Steve has audiences discovering ways to:
- Never relinquish your power. Be you, and find strength in who you are. Get clear about what you stand for and believe in and firmly hold on to it.
- Focus your attention and eliminate distractions. Keep your eye on the prize through challenges and the inevitable sideshows.
- Live to learn. Embrace your learning journey that never ends and take joy in the pursuit. Great leaders are great learners.
- Invest in “You, Inc.” If you were a business, what investment would you make to drive your success? You own your journey, and at the same time, you go further by leveraging the collective intelligence of your team.
- Lead with attitude and effort. These are the two things always within your control. Be able to look in the mirror and know you gave it your best.
- Navigate uncertainty. Winning is never a straight line. Face your doubters and get into the game, even if it’s through the side door.
- Win the right way by giving more to get more. Help others find their greatness that leads to greater success for you and others while creating a lasting legacy.
Steve White started working as a young boy, helping his mother clean motel rooms. That’s where he found his FIGHT. He knew his mom was far more capable than the work she was doing, and he wondered what she could achieve if she had the means and the opportunities. These formative experiences ignited his passion to be his best and to help others be their best with a vision of creating a table of prosperity where everyone is welcome.
