You Can Make It Happen
Today’s college students have more options and more challenges than ever before. Technology and subject matter change rapidly. The marketplace they are preparing for is global. Demands, requirements and rules in nearly every profession are ever-changing. Access to resources is changing. Competition is fiercer at the individual and organizational level. We live in a performance-based culture and it matters less and less where you are from, your race or gender, or even what college or university you attended; what matters is how students and graduates are able to interact and produce results. Stedman Graham’s “You Can Make It Happen in College” program enhances academic and personal performance by teaching a process for success. It puts resources and strategies in students’ hands to set higher, smarter goals for themselves and be more accountable for their lives in college and beyond.
Teens Can Make It Happen: Nine Steps to Success
In Teens Can Make It Happen programs, Stedman gives students the tools to overcome their fears and embrace their futures, limited only by the vision they have for themselves. He teaches teens that their potential is based on excellence, performance and results, rather than the outdated limitations of where they are from or what they look like. Graham provides young people with tools, skills and attitudes to achieve academic and workforce success. Programming targets high school students and can be offered as a one-time event or a series. SGA would develop programming format and delivery particulars for the workshop in cooperation with a client or sponsor.
Move Without the Ball
Stedman teaches student athletes that there is more to life than just being a professional athlete. Today, many teens buy into the illusion conveyed by TV and magazines—that it is easy to be a superstar. Wanting to play sports is a worthy goal. But, what happens if they don’t make it? What then? Many young people don’t achieve their full potential because they don’t understand the process of success. Stedman teaches the importance of education, health and fitness, as well as factors contributing to athletic performance. The idea is to be well rounded, which opens up many more opportunities for youth throughout a lifetime. He ensures they have time to build their dream and recognize that they can break free and realize their potential as an individual. In a down-to-earth, inspirational manner he encourages teens to stay in school, work harder in their studies, and focus their energies into building their futures.

I have tremendous admiration for Stedman Graham and the mission he has chosen. He not only lives the message presented, but he is a powerful example. I know how genuine, deeply genuine Stedman is about helping people achieve their highest potential for success.
Thank you for making the 92nd Commencement at Coker College a successful and inspiring occasion. Harris DeLoach, Chief Operating Officer of SONOCO, told me that all the commencement speeches he has heard, your speech is at the very top of the list!
Your enthusiasm, candor and powerful message brought so much to our celebration. I applaud your strong commitment to leadership development.
Stedman Graham’s life-planning program is a perfect fit for our youth when presented to them at the right time in their school career in a systematic and creative manner. Students delivered incredible testimonials on the new vision that they acquired about who they are and where they intend to go with their lives as a direct result of the reflections that Mr. Graham’s lessons sparked within them.
Stedman is an artist with unique communication skills that so effectively helped reach these individuals on levels that possibly they have never previously experienced, and I believe that the candor, openness of communication, ‘tough love’ talk and practical discussion on their skill development will lead to remarkable maturation and an appreciation of greater personal accountability and for their personal development.
Stedman Graham is one of today’s leading authorities on emotional intelligence. Seminars are highly effective BECAUSE they make you focus on the true leader within yourself.
