Council Learning Experience

What’s different?

Our approach guides our organizations to create a shift in culture. Together we systematically move our organization from a culture of distrust and sabotage to one of care and collaboration.

Getting our teams on a solid foundation requires that we go to work to change our thinking. Sitting in a lecture or reading a book is not enough, an emotional motivational speech won’t work either. We learned and created our ingrained beliefs through experience and encounter; in order to change them we have to expose those beliefs with a new experience. In the Council’s Learning Experience we leverage activities and games to help you to develop new behaviors.

NOT a motivational training – although fun and sometimes exciting this will not prepare you for leadership.  You know this if you have attended any a motivational speech or training, they are fun but the results are short lived and the excitement fleeting.

NOT a lecture or subject matter training on what to do – although you have to know what to do, this will NOT prepare you for leadership. How many books have you read with all the necessary instructions and seen nothing change in your teams?

The Council’s Learning Experience trains us to be a detective. In a series of skits games and exercises we practice searching out the beliefs and strongholds that hold us back from being what we are best designed to do, exposing our gifts and talents to be leveraged for the vision of the company.


Steve is an amazing motivator with a sound grasp on what it takes to be successful in business and a solid theological foundation to minister to partners and clients alike. It has been a privilege to work with Steve and an honor to know him. Things will never be the same…and I’m looking forward to the next time we get to serve together!

Steve is a very astute business person and an extremely good judge of people. He readily grasps the key components and factors of any given situation, and moves quickly to maximize benefits for the enterprise and his team members. Anyone would do well to count Steve among their valued business associates

“It has truly been a pleasure to see a “Master” at work in creating an environment that allows and encourages people to accomplish things both professionally and personally that they didn’t believe possible”

I have known Steve for well over 10 years… and he has always been helpful. I recommend him for any board evaluation and he will cover just about everything needed.  His ideas are extremely challenging and when he can get 25 people on the same page… well the results are outstanding.

John (Edwards) was part of a team that provided high-powered and extremely effective leadership training. John has a deep understanding of this field, and provides a powerful and controlled environment for personal growth.

Steve coached our team to exceed our goal.  It was a pleasure to work with someone that is dedicated and committed to their work.

Our leadership team spent two days in Steve Hinton’s seminar and we tripled our sales the very next month.
