Stephen Graziani, Founder of Mastery Studio, CEO at Workforce Matrix


Mastery Studio is a place where people can explore, develop, and actualize their purpose and live robustly on the path of mastery. It is a place where reflection, connection, and action come together.

I believe we are witnessing a new era of what’s possible for people. It is a time when individuals can live purposefully and have a positive impact on their world. I believe everybody can find their path and that most of us have access to the resources we need to have a life steeped in fulfillment[MOU1] .

I came to this perspective during a long career in technology, where I managed hundreds of professionals, met with thousands of hiring managers, and witnessed the job search of tens of thousands of people. Along the way, I began to recognize those who were both truly successful and deeply fulfilled by their work. These people had a purpose, were developing their superpowers, and engaged in work they believed made a difference.

I eventually deduced that purpose drives mastery, mastery drives impact (aka performance), and together these create life-changing fulfillment. I saw that those on the path of mastery were similar in important ways. Out of this, I created the Mastery Wireframe, left the corporate world, and launched Workforce Matrix to help companies bring Mastery to their teams.

My clients have been enlightened CEO’s and senior leaders who seek more than quick fixes and short-term gains. They are uncovering their best selves; they want the same for their teams. As their strategic advisor, consultant, and executive coach, I help them grow their business, develop their teams, and have a positive impact in the world.

Mastery Studio is the outgrowth of this advisory work I did at Workforce Matrix. Here we combine a vetted coaching process, the latest research on purpose, and extensive study of mastery to help individuals from all walks of life create journeys through the Purpose-Mastery-Performance-Fulfillment continuum.

Welcome to Mastery Studio!


Purpose Powers the New Workforce

Research has proven what we intuitively knew: Purpose gives work new meaning- relationships grow deeper, impact is greater, personal growth is faster. We partnered with Imperative to gain access to tools and methodologies that we use to help our clients cultivate a Purpose Mindset. Then work becomes a playground for people to develop and apply their superpowers. Purpose-driven people thrive, purpose-driven teams outperform, and purpose-driven organizations kick-ass.

Studies show that Purpose-driven companies outperform. 


They are more likely to report revenue growth.


They have greater productivity from inspired employees.


They are more likely to have employees develop into leaders.

There is a direct and powerful relationship between
Purpose, Mastery, Performance, and Fulfillment.
