"During my time in government, I had special oversight over wastewater treatment, including facilities, new construction, and personnel. I have a passion for helping folks, especially in wastewater, develop greater employee engagement and performance." Steve Hammond
From birthing an award-winning non-profit and expanding it into multiple states to being elected to legislate for 1.9 million people while keeping oversight over a multi-billion-dollar capital construction project, Steve has had a wide variety of experiences. He has been a small business owner, salesman, driven mixers and 18-wheel, and helped build his own house. He enjoys riding his H-D motorcycle.
He has watched both the rising cost of employee turnover and the individual need for job security. Steve's speeches focus on employee engagement and performance with special emphasis on the qualities that make a great employee/team member.
A gifted speaker with the ability to keep an audience’s attention, he has taught seminars in all 50 states on subjects ranging from from conflict resolution to project management.
He is the author of Lessons Learned in Time Management, published by MentorMilitary.com.

About The Name
Moving to Fort Worth (Foat Wuth), I noticed the number of ranches and ranch related names. Not coming from a big city myself, I wasn't about to abandon my more rural past. So, I named my business a ranch – albeit a ranch without livestock. Thus was born, Horseless Ranch, Inc.
Although many folks know me through "Steve Hammond Speaks," and "I make folks unfireable," the main business is still Horseless Ranch, Inc. We still believe that, "Whatever your business, your business is people."
