Welcome, I'm Stephanie Trager, Chief Catalyst at Intentional Paradigms, Keynote Speaker, Executive Coach & Strategic Advisor and some say, Medicine Woman.

She’s results focused, a dot connector, highly empathic and brings a holistic approach to help her client’s unlock purpose and position themselves as
valuable members of the leadership team. Stephanie brings an out-of-the-box perspective that expands the possibility paradigm, leverages opportunity and drives leadership confidence, speed and effectiveness. Her approach to transformation and growth encompasses the art, the science and the way of conscious leadership which includes looking at the whole person and building resilience, emotional intelligence, personal responsibility, strategic thinking and advanced interpersonal communication skills.
Stephanie is uniquely positioned to understand her client’s challenges. They appreciate her diverse skillset including her business and legal problem-solving acumen plus subject matter expertise in addressing their pressing demands around the rapid speed of disruption in technology, sustainability, diversity and inclusion, employee engagement, leadership gaps, governance, corporate social responsibility and supply chain due diligence, including risk and compliance. She’s been called a corporate medicine woman with keen insight and an ability to catalyze radical transformation.
Stephanie knows when to coach, when to ask the right questions and when to lend a consultative approach that gives her clients a competitive edge.
Stephanie is a licensed attorney in New York, holds a Juris Doctorate, and a bachelor’s degree in communications and international relations from Boston University. Her early work in corporate responsibility and sustainability was followed by a career in complex corporate litigation at Davis Polk.

She is a provider of The Leadership Circle Profile, a state of the art 360 tool which assesses well-known leadership competencies and styles and lends an integrative understanding of the leader’s capacity for creative, adaptive and situationally appropriate responses to the leadership challenges that are prevalent in today’s VUCA environment. (VUCA = volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous).
Stephanie combines 13 years as a certified coaching professional with more than two decades of off the beaten path experience in studying indigenous wisdom, shamanism and practicing mindfulness to help leaders uncover and align with purpose. Her clients get to the heart of the matter quickly, see the story beneath the story, and co-create rapid lasting breakthroughs that elevate and permanently transform challenges into opportunities.
