Humorous Motivational Speaker Known as
The Attitude Adjuster

Business humorist Steve Rizzo has adjusted the attitudes of thousands of employees across America. As a motivational speaker, he demonstrates ways audiences can remove the boundaries and inhibitions they have placed on themselves to reach higher levels of success.


His book, Get Your Shift Together: How to Think, Laugh, and Enjoy Your Way to Success in Business and in Life, is a humorous and deeply meaningful guide to transform your professional and personal life by shifting your attitude and breaking down emotional and mental barriers that get in your way. His key takeaway message: “Don’t put your happiness on hold.” His latest book is Motivate This!.


Before Rizzo became a motivational speaker, he was a popular stand-up comedian, with the likes of Dennis Miller, Rosie O’Donnell, and Drew Carey as his opening acts. As he watched other comedians get prime opportunities while he was passed by, he realized he was sabotaging his own success. That epiphany set him on a self-help quest that allowed him to develop the tools he needed to change his life. He now shares those same tools with audiences to help them acquire the attitude they need to achieve their goals while enjoying the process along the way.

The Attitude Adjuster

With levity and insight, Rizzo shows audiences how they can adjust their attitudes and overcome the obstacles that keep them from achieving the greatness and happiness they desire both personally and professionally. His presentations spotlight techniques designed to motivate individuals to improve performance at all levels -- sales, customer service, productivity, and creativity.

Drilling for Optimism

In times of economic distress, opportunities don’t disappear; they simply manifest in new and different ways. Optimism is the key to being able to recognize these opportunities when they arise. This program examines the real power of optimism as a currency that creates storm-weathering attitudes and allows the flexibility to identify alternate routes to success, even in this severe economic climate. Only the optimistic survive, and Steve delivers the tools necessary for tapping into the positive reserves within each of us.

The Atti-Tools for Success

This highly energetic and entertaining program unlocks the secrets to the power of permanent change and a lasting positive attitude. You can be sure that your group will be feeling fantastic and walking away more productive than ever, not just for a day, but for a lifetime

Don't Just Accept Change... Embrace It

Sometimes it comes by way of choice and sometimes it is forced upon us by circumstances beyond our control. Either way, it is a part of life that is needed in order for us to grow to our full potential. Steve will show your group how to deal with one of our biggest fears in both the workplace and in our personal lives…CHANGE! Everyone will learn the skills needed to use any change to their advantage, creating greater success on all levels.

Why Not Enjoy The Process

We spend most of our waking hours at our place of employment and much of our leisure time thinking about it. We can let the stress, fast pace, and challenges control our emotions or we can lighten up, have fun, and enjoy the process. It’s always a matter of choice! Acquiring a healthy state of mind is essential in order to produce quality sales, quality customer service, teamwork, and communication. Steve will show your group how to overcome the everyday pressures that can stifle productivity and creativity in the workplace, while enjoying the process.
