Senior Manager - Nuclear Industry
"I have thoroughly benefitted from working with Steve, his direct and intelligent approach to (executive) coaching epitomises the support that a modern business leader needs to succeed. Steve uses a blend of contemporary theories, psychological understanding and experiential wisdom in his coaching and I personally recommend him to any business leader or team who want to sustain and improve their results and achieve their strategic aims.....'
Senior Leader - Nuclear Industry
It is rare in life that you meet someone who has an innate ability to see behind the public face that we all create, from the first meeting Steve was able to identify the key areas that would not only make me a better Leader but a more rounded individual. His insights have been invaluable, his ability to communicate in a way that immediately resonates with me is outstanding and his ability to allow me to be creative in thought and action commendable. I have no hesitation in recommending him to colleagues and business associates as life is far more richer with his influence.
"I think I’m still on a dopamine high because I jumped straight in yesterday before I could bottle it, and had my difficult conversation. So, again, thank you, not just for the skills you have taught me, but for stoking my enthusiasm for the subject matter which enabled me to take it out of the classroom and into real life”
Paul Winkle - Safety, Security and Assurance Director, EDF Energy
In my time at Torness, I was delighted with the approach that Steve...brought to our leadership training. (He) embraced the need for leaders to live the values of “safety first”. Equally, (he) understood the need for our leaders to drive innovation, simplification and effectiveness to ensure our business remained competitive. Steve...introduced our leaders to a range of tools and techniques that developed their ability to empower our people to deliver safe reliable performance.
Behaviour & the Brain - Senior Leader Nuclear Industry
"As someone who spends a lot of time managing people, getting a better understanding of why people do what they do, and how I can use this information to help me and my team on a daily basis has to be worth exploring. The Book promises to deliver a framework to help do this, so why not spend some time reading it? The book is easy to read and topics flow nicely into each other. There are understandable diagrams which communicate the concepts in enough detail to be helpful but without going into intense levels of detail around the science of psychology. It also includes a healthy dose of Steve’s sense of humour, which makes for an engaging read. Having spent decades writing procedures and management systems, the book provided an interesting insight into why the structures and processes in place in businesses are not doing as much as we think to drive personal accountability, and often work against what we are trying to achieve. The book provides an interesting reflection on common business practices and makes some good suggestions about alternative ways to approach a situation. I don’t have a favourite bit, but I did find myself thinking ‘I do that’ or ‘we do that’ when reading about common approaches which don’t work well, so it prompted a lot of reflection. I’m trying to use it to inform my approach, rather than using the standard approach to situations that I’m used to. I’m also taking more time to explain issues, and not assuming individuals know as much as I expect. Recommended for anyone who leads a team or is engaged in trying to improve behaviours and ultimately culture in an organisation. It’s a relatively short book and easy to read, and well worth a couple of hours of your time."

"I find people, what they think and what they do, endlessly fascinating. An insight into this, and the pink stuff that ‘controls’ us, is therefore very exciting! I found the book warranted careful reading and prompted reflection, so I’d read, pause and reflect. The structure meant I could easily do that, and the summaries were useful prompts. My biggest learning was...The power of being ‘mind aligned’ is infinite, if only we see, hear, learn and act with knowledge and humanity. My favourite bit...Mindsets visuals – beautifully succinct and powerful. Also a useful tool in reflecting on our own mindsets (personally and organisationally), and what that means for us (impact and opportunity). I’m re-reading and reflecting, using it as an insight prompt into why people and situations may be happening. So, in this way, it’s an ongoing tool and education, not just a 1-touch book. This is an ideal book for anyone who wants to understand why we do what we do, and wants to challenge themselves (and others) to create an environment for growth and success."
