Steve TSenior Associate

Experience

Steve has been working with senior managers in the field for over twenty years and is well regarded by his clients.  His client list includes Red Cross, Heineken, Capita, Impress International, Mindshare and Storm Communication. He has put his wealth of experience into a book titled "the Sticking Point", which analyses how we, through the language we use, can either motivate or destroy people’s confidence. The book’s fundamental message is that every word we use has an impact on others, either good or bad.  Steve’s background is as a presenter and producer of high profile sports events, and through this work he has expanded his interests; initially into the field of training groups and individuals in presentation skills, but subsequently into other areas of communication skills, leadership and management.  Working alongside organisations such as Eumetsat, Cognizant, British Red Cross, International Study Group, Ipsos Mori, Racing UK and many other organisations large and small, Steve has a wealth of experience and understanding of the difference great communication skills can make to a company, and to the people within it.  As well as being an award winning training provider, Steve holds qualifications in neuro linguistic programming, cognitive behavioural therapy, clinical hypnosis and conflict resolution and brings a unique blend of skills to play when working with his clients.  Valued for his work in personal development through coaching and mentoring as well as for his training programmes, Steve works with clients around the world.

Coaching philosophy

“Presenting isn’t about making speeches or working through a deck of PowerPoint slides. In fact, whether or not we recognise it, we are all full-time, professional presenters. Every action and every word conveys a message. To know and understand this is the first and biggest step to becoming a good communicator, a strong leader and a valuable team member. All too often people focus on public speaking, forgetting, or maybe never realising, that all the world is a stage.”

I wish I could dig deeper on some of my remaining issues but unfortunately all good things have to end. I will definitely recommend coaching and have been already doing it for while. It definitely changed my life.

Simon Gosney, Head of Learning and Development
 Tim has provided some high quality coaching support to me through a time of transition both in terms of job, career and organisational changes. He is a skilled and experienced executive coach who facilitated just the right mix of reflection, future visioning, challenge, compassion and stretch. I’d strongly recommend working with him if you are going through a career or organisation transition. Fun to work with, I always left my sessions with him feeling significantly clearer and more content with my overall direction of travel and next steps.

Neil Savage, Director of Organisational Development 2gether NHS Foundation Trust
 “I selected my coach on the basis that she had a completely different approach to my structured way of thinking. Katherine challenged me and took me way out of my comfort zone – scary and uncomfortable at times but eye-opening. These coaching sessions enabled me to see things from a very different perspective, gave me the time and space to reflect on my practice and provided practical tips and approaches as to how I can develop my performance.”
