Dr. Steve Steff

Doctorate in Leadership & Ethics
Role: Change Management

The value Dr. Steff brings to eWater Advantage is dealing with the behavioral issues of learning to accept and embrace new ways of doing familiar tasks. As there is an element of uncertainty when first learning of electrolyzed water – How can “water” kill germs? – it is important we understand the psychology of gaining user acceptance. Once an employee understands the urgency of why the switch to ewater matters, they will be more eager to prove to themselves that the products work, which will create enthusiastic adoption. Dr. Steff has earned a doctorate in Workplace Leadership and Ethics as well as a Masters in Counseling.
