About Stef

stef-aboutStefanie Ziev is a former TV Executive turned certified life and executive coach who appears as an expert on NBC’s Today show – including the segment Coach Me If You Can – as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio on various channels.

Stefanie also serves as the Co-CEO and Head of Strategic Partnerships for a company she co-founded called Race 2 Relate, LLC, which seeks to erase the lines that divide us and create a culture of compassion and empathy through simulated, experiential “races” that have been designed specifically to ignite a critical dialogue and uncover what links us.

Stefanie spent nearly two decades as an award-winning, senior development executive in the entertainment industry. She worked for DreamWorks and The Oxygen Network where she developed and oversaw original movies and series for television, several of which won and were nominated for awards including an Emmy.

While predominately immersed in the world of media, Stefanie was always drawn to psychology and personal development. She studied Spiritual Psychology at the Master’s level at the University of Santa Monica in California and received her coaching certification from Coach For Life, an Accredited Coach Training Program.  She has earned the Associate Certified Coach designation from the International Coach Federation.

As a coach, Stefanie is known for taking elusive concepts and converting them into simple, user-friendly tools that help people to shed their limits, shift their paradigm and create success on their own terms. She supports her clients to dig deep, connect with what’s meaningful to them and share their true gifts and mad skills with purpose. Stefanie believes that everyone is fully equipped with everything they need right now – resources, answers, next steps – to approach their current situation and their life as a whole in a way that transforms their ability to have, be and do more and go further with considerably less effort. She guides her clients to access that information and claim who they are, what they want, and why they want it. From there, through her engaging, funny, yet anything but precious style, Stefanie holds her clients 100% accountable to make it happen.
