Steve Mellor Biography

Born and raised in Chester, England, Steve Mellor is an example of getting out what you put in through all phases and across all areas of his life. Mellor discovered and established his competitive edge in the sport of swimming from a young age and before the age of 20 he had taken that fire to the heights of a top-50 world ranking, swimming for his country, and being awarded a scholarship to swim in the NCAA. As a student-athlete at NC State he was a 3-time ACC medalist, an NCAA Championships qualifier, and a US Open finalist, but he was somehow still scratching the surface of being associated with elite performance.

In 2011, Mellor was recruited to Louisiana State University as a swim coach where over the course of the decade he guided athletes to record-setting heights and even achieved milestones that this prestigious university had never seen. Having coached athletes to SEC Championships, All-American status, and international competitions the world over, in the summer of 2021 he guided LSU’s first US Olympic qualifier in swimming to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. His athlete, Brooks Curry, then became an Olympic Gold Medalist as a member of the American’s 4x100m freestyle relay team, and LSU had its first Olympic champion swimmer.

Following this historic achievement, Mellor decided to leave the world of swimming and explore how he could apply his ability to realize potential and optimize performance on a larger scale. In the fall of 2021 Mellor founded his company Career Competitor which was born out of the same-named podcast he started in the summer of 2018. While the podcast’s mission is to shed light on how athlete-like traits can serve individuals in their respective career, the business was founded to spark competitive fires in clients to pursue their optimal self in search of optimal performance. Through executive coaching and culture consulting, today Steve is doing what he does best – getting the most out of others – with business owners, executive teams, leaders, and competitors across all industries.

In October of 2022, Mellor became an author with the release of his debut book "SHOCK THE WORLD! A Competitor’s Guide to Realizing Your Potential" where he takes readers through a series of “shocks” to prompt the pursuit of realizing one’s potential. The book presents three key areas of development Mellor believes we should target in pursuit of our potential: inward steps, process steps, and action steps. These three phases of personal development not only offer readers the direction they need to pursue their dreams, but it sheds light on what has been at the heart of Mellor’s coaching approach for years.

Whether it be his book, his current coaching work, the decades of involvement in elite sport, or just his DNA, Mellor oozes a passion for the pursuit of human potential. As a speaker, Mellor brings his enthusiasm and commitment towards maximizing potential through the form of intentional and inspiring content. A storyteller by nature, Mellor takes pride in connecting the experiences of himself and others with impactful lessons for audiences to latch onto and see themselves in as well. Mellor ’s goal as a speaker is to implement positivity, banish doubt, establish accountability, and prompt change in the lives of those in attendance.

Mellor believes we all have an optimal self that is worth pursuing, it just requires knowing what it takes to move towards it.

Steve Mellor Speaking Topics

  • Leadership - The Art of Authentic Leadership

    Why leaders need to be motivated to establish their truest and best self, before leading others to do the same.

    While there is plenty of narrative in the world on promoting authenticity within the workplace, most of it is in reference to those being led and not the leaders themselves. Considering standards within an organization are established through leadership, to have leaders resisting or denying authenticity in how they show up will discourage others to do the same. People see through a lack of authenticity; therefore trust is broken before it can be built. There is an artform to authentic leadership and it must be embodied to deliver optimal impact as a leader

    What audiences will take away:

    • A real understanding of authenticity, how it can be impactful, and why all leaders benefit from embodying it
    • A guide to letting direct reports in on your authentic self without relinquishing respect and building trust in the process
    • What the return for authentic leadership will mean for authenticity in your direct reports and how it will elevate their purpose and performance to their work

  • SHOCK THE WORLD! – Professional Development, Personal Growth, & Leadership

    Shock The World! What it Takes to Realize Your Potential

    A compelling keynote that offers insight on how the most unlikely of individuals can in fact reach the pinnacle of what they do

    There is a version of you that you haven’t met yet. One capable of greater things than you are willing to admit. While society tends to present many more examples of why NOT do something, potential is realized when the focus is on why something CAN be achieved. Within your world there are opportunities everywhere to capitalize on what is often right in front of you, and I have made a life for myself stepping directly towards and coaching others towards opportunity.

    What audiences will take away:

    • A conviction behind why you should commit to pursuing your potential

    • The three parts that provide the framework required to pursue your potential

    • How to prioritize your Optimal Self in pursuit of Optimal Performance

    • Delivering on the dream and Shocking Your World

  • Professional Development, Personal Growth, & Leadership

    Why Engagement is Everything:

    An informative and thought-evoking keynote that challenges audiences to become engaged with themselves in order to engage more with their careers

    One of the most researched areas throughout Corporate America today is that of figuring out how to keep employees engaged enough to remain with an organization. While the research looks to equip employers with the intel required to provide a more purposeful workplace, engagement is rarely discussed as a two-sided topic. While the data highlights that employees crave shared strategies, clear goals, and greater recognition from their employer, there is little conversation on how they can implement such expectations in themselves. If heightened engagement at work can elevate buy in, performance, and loyalty, imagine what individual engagement with one’s self could do?

    What audiences will take away:

    • Addressing personal signs of disengagement with yourself

    • Highlighting areas within yourself that you are driven to engage more with

    • The benefits that come from establishing personal engagement towards yourself

    • How the habits that make up your own personal engagement are the same required to create engagement in those around you
