Example Modules
Hi, I'm Steve Cuss

From my earliest days as a hospital chaplain, I learned that we all manage 3 spaces in our life:

  1. The space inside us with all manner of triggers, assumptions and the story we tell ourselves.

  2. The space between us, or between those we work with.

  3. The space between us and God.

I offer tools to notice, name and move through the pressure, triggers, and anxiety we all carry in these 3 spaces so we can be emotionally healthy and free and so we can help our people experience the same.

More About Steve

Steve is a Lead Pastor and has 25 years of full time ministry experience. He is a Spiritual Care Professional in the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education and holds sixteen hundred hours of supervised ministry in CPE. He studied Family Systems Theory and theology in Grad school and has since integrated his chaplain experience, systems theory and pastoral experience into a set of tools anyone can practice. 

Steve starts by helping you notice, name and move through anxiety and pressure in yourself, going from reactive to calm and aware. He then equips you to notice anxiety spreading in groups and how to not only de-escalate it, but build cultural health.   

Steve has been using and teaching these tools internationally on 4 continents for over a decade and they have allowed him to thrive in a high pressure, rapid growth leadership context.

Steve Cuss

Steve knows internal and relational pressure, the spinning mind, resistance to change, sabotage, facing criticism and struggling with the breadth of skill required. He also knows the power of the Gospel first for the leader, and how healthy leadership can ‘infect’ unhealthy situations to create healthy culture. 

The tools Steve has learned and forged have been hard fought and they work. in 2019, these tools became the Harper Collins book Managing Leadership Anxiety: Yours and Theirs.

Capable Life is your opportunity for a lived experience of these tools. They are better practiced than read about. Steve’s deepest desire is for leaders to use these tools to find the peace, freedom and love they so eloquently share with others.
