Over the past two years, Steve has studied with psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, neuroscientists, and drill sergeants to learn about the science of taking action and what sparks people or holds people back. After being involved in the TED community and a lot of design thinking work, Steve was tired of talking about ideas, so he went on a journey to understand how to take more clear, specific action on ideas, and learned how to create a bias towards action so that it becomes a norm.
Steve Garguilo works with people from all walks of life from all over the world to help them make their ideas happen. He led the revolution to transform the culture of the 5th largest company in the world by instigating and shaping a global grassroots movement at Johnson & Johnson that engaged 23,000 employees and led to countless stories of product and people development. In February 2017, he released his Amazon Bestselling book, Surge: Your Guide to Put Any Idea into Action. His company Action Surge focuses on helping people take clear, specific actions on ideas.
