Steve Trautman has been analyzing and solving talent issues for more than 20 years, first as a program manager on Microsoft Word 1.0, then as an executive during Expedia’s growth phase and now as a talent “fixer” for some of America’s most visionary leaders.
Working with executives at Fortune 500 companies, Steve pioneered a revolutionary way to identify the gap between a team’s skills and the expertise that’s really required to deliver on a corporate strategy. Steve has a message for frustrated leaders: “You’re taking a big risk if you’re not 100% sure your team has who it takes to get the job done.”
Steve is the author of three books including Do You Have WHO It Takes? Managing Talent Risk in a High-Stakes Technical Workforce. He’s known for high-energy, humorous keynotes filled with real-world stories that open executives’ eyes to new ways of thinking about how talent drives success.
“Our membership demand content that isn’t just good to listen to, but will bring value back to their company. Steve gives practical, step-by-step advice and helps attendees reshape how they are thinking about the issue of talent risk. I strongly recommend Steve and hope to invite him back to present again.”
