I am Greg Stevens, principal of Purple Cow Career and Talent Development. With dozens of clients across sectors and over 700 professional coaching hours, I am passionate about helping people and organizations succeed.
In addition to my coaching work, I wear many hats at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey: director of the Master of Arts in Museum Professions program, director of the Institute of Museum Ethics, former director of the undergraduate Communication and Design program, and former associate director of the McBride Leadership Center/Buccino Leadership Institute.
Previously, from 2007-2017, I directed the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) Professional Development program, through which I addressed career management, leadership development, and professional skills-building for museum colleagues. Prior to AAM, I held positions at the National Museum of the U.S. Army, Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums, National Building Museum, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, and Kellogg Performing and Visual Arts School. I am proud to have co-edited (with Wendy Luke) A Life in Museums: Managing Your Museum Career (2012, The AAM Press), have written numerous articles and book chapters on museum practice, and frequently facilitate seminars and workshops on career and leadership topics. I earned my M.A.T. in Museum Education from The George Washington University and my B.A. in Theatre from San Diego State University.
