Sharing Mastery

Way to Mastery was founded to explore, explain, and empower Mastery in the world. It is the culmination of a thirty year quest helping people excel in the rapidly evolving technology industry. 

Since 2014, we have supported people from all walks of life on their journey of Mastery, from Novice to Advanced Beginner to Competent to Expert to Master. We work directly with individuals and sometimes with the companies where they work. We have given workshops across the United States, as well as in Europe and India.


From Finding Talent to Empowering Talent

Over the course of twenty years, Steve Graziani hired, trained, and managed hundreds of professionals and worked with thousands of hiring managers to recruit and place people in jobs at the most innovative and successful technology companies in the world. Together, his teams worked on over 100,000 job openings and filled more than 10,000 positions.

From this vantage point, he learned the intimate details of people’s professional and personal lives. He listened as they shared their hopes, fears, and regrets. He saw career choices and transitions. He watched them succeed and fail.

In time, he saw a pattern in the lives of people who were authentically successful and fulfilled. This propelled him in 2009 to begin an intense study of the most successful people he knew, including athletes, artists, craftsmen, business executives, salespeople, recruiters, technologists, and more.

In 2014, he recognized that success and fulfillment was a by-product of Mastery; achieved by incorporating Seven Elements into your life. He saw that Mastery isn't about talent or luck or timing. Mastery wasn't about doing something for 10,000 hours. Mastery is a way of living. It's about choices and actions. 

He created the Mastery Wireframe to help people design and live their life to achieve Mastery of what they love to do. 

His purpose is to empower Mastery in the world.
