Steve Tonkin and Company creates and distributes proprietary person-centered training and software solutions that help people better connect with and understand each other. Our person-centered training solutions seek to help people find their authentic identity and become influencers, effective communicators, and purpose-driven individuals.
Each software solution aims to strengthen human connection and deepen personal understanding and direction. Our corporate solutions improve teamwork by building stronger individual identities and employee-centered organizations.
As an employee-centered organization, we will promote a “Team for Life” outlook through our person-centered approach by helping each person step into their authentic identity and live life with meaningful purpose. We will create space for each person to work autonomously as intrinsically motivated and purpose-driven individuals within a supportive, productive, and friendly environment. Our team will have the freedom to pursue healthy spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional lives.
