Gregory Stebbins, Ed.D.
Founder & Master Coach

Dr. Stebbins has enjoyed a 35-year career coaching emerging and senior executives. His focus has been on assisting leaders in more profoundly understanding themselves, others, and the culture within which they lead. He has also pursued a lifelong study of eastern and western wisdom teachings and continues a 50-year daily meditation practice.


This unique combination of experiences has enabled him to address and explain from his direct experience, just what Transcendent Leadership is and how to implement it. This wisdom development process helps leaders examine their inner dynamics, which drive how they act in an organizational environment. Leadership effectiveness means being accountable, which requires awareness of and taking ownership of moment-to-moment beliefs, fears, hopes, desires, defenses, and impulses.


Greg’s senior business leadership experience is combined with his in-depth understanding of the complex human dynamics found in a working environment. He is a member of the Consulting Psychologist division of the American Psychological Association and a life member of Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Honor Society. He was selected to be a member of the Forbes Coaching Council and LinkedIn’s ProFinder for executive coaching. He is a frequent contributor to Forbes online magazine on Transcendent Leadership.


Dr. Stebbins is one of the co-creators for the master’s degree program in Transcendent Leadership offered by the Peace Theological Seminary & College of Philosophy. He is an Inaugural Member of the Conscious Leadership Guild and a member of the Management, Spirituality and Religion sub-group of the Academy of Management.


He earned an MBA in Finance from the University of Southern California and an Ed.D. from Pepperdine University’s school of education and psychology. Greg has been listed in Marquis Who’s Who in the World for more than three decades
