Mastery Workshop in San Francisco

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 been empowering people from all walks of life on their journey of Mastery, from Novice to Advanced Beginner to Competent to Expert to Master. We work with companies to bring a Mastery to their organizations and directly with people from all walks of life. We have given workshops across the country from San Francisco to Minneapolis to Boston, as well as in Europe and India.

Our passion is Mastery and our mission is to help others experience the true joy it brings to the world. 


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.

He learned the intimate details of people’s professional and personal lives. He heard their hopes, fears, and regrets. He saw them succeed and fail. He saw career choices and transitions. 

From this vantage point, he saw a pattern in people that were BOTH authentically successful and fulfilled. The combination of these Seven Elements - Love/Purpose, Skill, Knowledge, Ecosystem, Feedback, Routine/Habits, and Mindfulness - transforms work into a joyous adventure. They create the positive cycle of learning-doing-growing that will propel anyone through five distinct stages, starting with Novice and ending with Mastery.  

He saw that Mastery isn't about talent or luck or timing. Mastery wasn't about doing something for 10,000. Mastery is a way of living. It's a choice. Everyone can travel the road of Mastery when they see the world through the lens of a Master.   

This became his Purpose: to explore, explain, and empower Mastery in the world.
