" was a good message and one staff needed to hear. It’s good for them to know that the stress and issues they are dealing with are normal. The focus on effectiveness and efficiency allows them to prioritize during this current situation. Thanks so much for joining my faculty meeting!"

Hi, I’m Steven Bollar

Steve Bollar, a.k.a. Stand Tall Steve, is driven to help schools, associations, and organizations create a better culture and climate through creative rewards and encouragement. His book, Ideas, Ideas, Ideas! has been a jumping point for hundreds of organizations on how to increase morale, change the culture and lighten the climate for their students and staff.

In 2014 Steve was awarded the Burlington County Principals and Supervisors Association Visionary Leadership Award. In 2011 Steve was recognized by South Jersey Magazine as South Jersey’s top 20 Men of the Year. Additionally, Steve was chosen by Suburban Family Magazine Top 20 Citizen of the Year for 2012.  Steve is also a member of the Jostens Renaissance Hall of Fame. Renaissance is a program that focuses on recognizing students and staff while developing a positive school culture.

Steve served on the Board of Directors of the New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association.  NJPSA is the premier supporting organization for New Jersey Principals and Supervisors.

Steve has a long history in the education system, from art teacher to principal to Superintendent of Schools. His 23+ year career has shown him firsthand how to face the challenges that any organization can encounter and how to overcome them with creativity and communication.

It’s this insight that he brings to the stage during his keynotes, breakouts, and workshops - training administration, teachers, organizations and staff on how to create a better atmosphere for students and staff alike.
