Stephanie Staidle is a recognized innovator in Corporate Cultural Art programs, a professional development consultant and a creativity specialist whose mission is to transform the world of business from one that relies solely on logic, language, and numbers to one that values creativity, risk-taking, play and innovation. The Right Brain Entrepreneur is the result of the frustration with a society that encourages ‘playing it safe’ with all work and no play, suppressing our fullest, innate potential for success. Most of the education system does not set up the foundation for world changing entrepreneurs and happy companies.
With an extensive background in psychology (BA from Georgetown University) and the arts (SNSImages), Stephanie has over eight years experience as a counselor, art therapist and personal development coach. She is a licensed creative art therapist in the state of New York (LCAT), and nationally board certified (ATR-BC). Prior to receiving her Masters in Art Therapy at New York University, she spent many years working for large corporations doing marketing and advertising for clients such as American Express and Clear Channel.
Stephanie was one of six coaches selected for the Leadership Corps of PRO U, a premiere business and entrepreneurial education community. As a part of this department, she offered mindset training and leadership mentorship to budding entrepreneurs in the PRO community. Now, as the founder of The Right Brain Entrepreneur, she provides on-site workshops and coaching to business professionals worldwide, educating them on the science behind achieving results in business by using ‘right brain thinking’, offering outside-the-box solutions to improve team building, problem-solving, and employee satisfaction.
Stephanie has worked with educators, Google executives, lawyers and non-profits. She led the creation of the largest Vision Board on record at TedxFidiWomen 2013 in San Francisco. She led a sold out workshop, ‘Finding Your Why’ at SXSW 2014 in Austin, TX and was featured as an expert on NBC and EVOX Television Networks.
Stephanie is also passionate about making a difference in the world. The creative process is a powerful source of healing, strength, and community building. She has headed philanthropic art therapy projects in NYC and in Haiti, working with pediatric cancer patients at Columbia Presbyterian, adults with HIV/AIDS at Housing Works and earthquake survivors in San Raphael, Haiti. A portion of the income from TRBE always goes back to the community to cover Stephanie’s expenses when traveling or buying supplies for these impactful projects. Learn more at www.trbe.org.
