As a businessman, educator, and speaker, he presents, consults, and conducts training with corporations, organizations, and nonprofits on the topics of maximizing leadership, achieving success, growing a business, embracing diversity, achieving optimal health, and personal and professional branding. His corporate seminars are driven by the proprietary Nine-Step Success Process. In addition, Graham educates individuals and industries on using Success Circles a work-life balance tool he developed to make information and experience relevant to personal, professional, and business growth.

Graham has authored ten books, including two New York Times bestsellers, You Can Make It Happen: A Nine-Step Plan for Success and Teens Can Make It Happen: Nine Steps to Success. Build Your Own Life Brand! explores the concept of personal and professional branding. Move Without the Ball is a collection of principles that teaches students that sports are a part of life, not life itself. Who Are You? A Success Process for Building Your Life's Foundation focuses on success through self-discovery, and Diversity: Leaders Not Labels offers a unique approach to eliminate barriers to success. In early 2012, Graham will release his newest book, Identity: Passport to Freedom.

Actively involved in education, Graham is an adjunct professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago where he teaches a leadership course based on his Nine-Step Process. A former professor at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, he taught a management strategy course entitled "The Dynamics of Leadership." He is also a distinguished visiting professor at several colleges and universities throughout the country.

A native of Whitesboro, New Jersey, Graham has shown a lifelong commitment to youth and community. In 1985, Graham founded AAD Education, Health and Sports (formerly, Athletes Against Drugs), a nonprofit organization with over 500 professional athletes and other civic leaders committed to developing leadership in underserved youth. AAD has served over 15,000 students and has awarded $1.5 million in scholarships. Graham serves on several boards, including the national board of Junior Achievement (JA) and the 7-Eleven Education Is Freedom Foundation, and is a member of the Economic Club of Chicago. He is also actively involved in leadership efforts and programs in South Africa and is Founder of Concerned Citizens of Whitesboro and Concerned Citizens of Lake Waccamaw, North Carolina.

He holds a bachelor's degree in social work from Hardin-Simmons University. He received a master's degree in education from Ball State University and an honorary doctorate in Humanities from Coker College, where he is also a distinguished visiting professor.

  • The Nine-Step Success Process to Building Your Identity

    The Nine Step Success Process is a life management and performance system designed to build your identity and give you the tools to create your future. This methodology is based on the premise that individuals hold the power to influence their success or failure and that knowing who you are is the first step in self actualization, the first step to self leadership and leadership. The Nine Step Success Process is what best-selling author Stedman Graham has come to know as the difference from being conscious or unconscious of what is possible for an American citizen. Understanding the labels of race, gender and class, Graham has spent years creating and developing The Nine Step Success Process to get people to understand the importance of lifelong learning and to show them how to achieve lifelong potential by organizing information around their identity and purpose.
