- Are you working in an industry that requires brains and advanced education? Examples are science, engineering, innovation or any other complex field.
- Are you driven to speed up advancing your career and success?
- Or are you looking for an effective means to invest in the future of a high-talent person in your company?
I specialize in working with top executives and emerging leaders in innovation-oriented companies, and with entrepreneurs of visionary companies. I offer coaching, leadership and business guidance "for geeks by geeks." By "geek" I mean: You are a top expert in your field. I have walked the path you are on, and I can help you speed up the progress of your journey.
Coaching women in STEM is an important niche for me. Women often don't advance as far as they could. Companies lose valuable talent because of conflicts between demands of work versus family. I have proven tools to help you overcome this issue, too. Men are also looking for more success AND better work-life strategies.
I am a bit of "geek" myself. I am an award-winning technologist and innovator who then became an executive, turnaround authority, author, speaker and executive coach. I was sought out to write and speak about my turnaround expertise. As a result, I offer a proven system, "Transforming Talent Into Wealth™." It consistently meets and exceeds the success goals of my clients.
My company is Top-Notch CEO - this is about a mindset, not just a position. Our motto is: Think like a Top-Notch CEO and get rewarded as one, i.e., a) profits/income, b) making a difference, and c) living a life you love. With this philosophy, I coach and guide you to become an even more effective, successful, happy and inspiring leader.
I invite you to contact me. I will be happy to gift you a complimentary copy of my book "101 Quick Tips for High-Talent Companies" and to invite you to the Top-Notch CEO Discovery Experience webinar.

I have had other coaches before, however, none have ever taken me to my height of success as did Dr. Stephie Althouse. She truly listened and coached me strategically to reaching my goals. Prior to that I was in overwhelm with a magnitude of opportunities open to me. When I accomplished so much so quickly I realized I had paid less than with the other coaches.Dick Heatherton, Author, Speaker, Radio Expert, dickheatherton.com

Stephie came into a very dis-organized and difficult financial situation at Company XYZ. She has made a dramatic difference in terms of sorting through the issues, focusing the activities with the goal of improved profitability, improved moral, and establishing ground rules for screening potential business. Today, the situation is much improved, and when problems arise, she and the team are developing strategies that work to the benefit of the company and its customers. I am very impressed with her leadership skills.Robert Czajkowski, CTO at Real Phone Card Corp
Stephie is a driven and highly energetic executive. She has kept the team focused, and the company growing, even during the recent economic cycle. Last year's revenues increased 41%.

Client satisfaction is very high.Jim Waring, Executive Chairman at CleanTECH San Diego
