About me

How do you feel about your career or your business? Are you at a crossroads?

Career is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as a person's "course or progress through life (or a distinct portion of life)". In this definition career is understood to relate to a range of aspects of an individual's life, learning and work.You may not have previously thought about this but your career and life are inextricably linked. Why?..... Because if you are happy in your job or career, this has a direct impact on how you feel about life in general. Likewise if you are unhappy in your life, this is bound to affect your performance in your job or career.

My Mantra

"You spend more waking hours at work than in any other activity. Life is too short so why be unhappy? Take the 'leap of faith' and do what you love!"

Research shows that 1 in 2 people are in the wrong job and 2 out of 3 are unfulfilled. Do any of these ring bells with you?

  • Are you stuck in a rut, unfulfilled, not achieving your true potential, 'lost' in your job?
  • Lost your job through redundancy and now looking for a new career and life path?
  • Do you want to progress or change your career but are not making any headway?
  • Would you like to start your own business but don't know where to start?
  • Do you have a business you want to grow or change direction and need clarity?  

If you are a professional or executive and any of these sound like you, then I would love to hear from you and look at how I can unlock and fulfill your true potential and transform your career and life!

About Me

I am known as 'The Career Catalyst' ® as people say I act as the catalyst to help you achieve your career and life goals or help you first establish these if you are unclear what they might be.

I am a highly respected, top career coach, internationally acclaimed author, speaker and a UK thought leader in Portfolio Careers. I am a true people person and take great pride in having transformed the lives and careers of thousands of people from all walks of life including many career professionals, executives, business owners and the military.

So, how can I help you?
The first step to change or progression is self awareness and my career coaching programmes are based around my powerful and highly acclaimed 6 Step SMP Career Navigation Cycle process to take you on a 'voyage of self discovery' to help you achieve a breakthrough career change or transition!

I have supported thousands of people across many different business sectors - both through programmes for private clients and redundancy coaching and outplacement coaching programmes for companies.

"I am passionate about making a difference to people at all stages in their career, especially aspiring managers, executives, professionals and business owners, helping you realise your unique skills and attributes so we can realise career goals together. I get a huge buzz from seeing your confidence and self belief grow then move forward to get the job or career you really want and achieve success in your life".

So, how serious are you about making a career change or transition?

"If you are really serious serious about making a career change or developing your career, then please contact me for an initial free 'discovery review' to understand your current situation and look at the best way to help you move forward to achieve a successful career transition or career change, as life is too short to be unhappy, isn't it?"

Below are a couple of typical testimonials from my clients:

“Steve’s Executive Breakthrough Career Development Programme is best described as the difference between looking at a road map and having a GPS in my car! I would never dream of heading towards an unknown destination without one or other but quite simply, Steve’s Executive Breakthrough Career Development Programme has helped me keep on track in my career change journey. Despite the diversions and road blocks which most of us encounter when visiting previously uncharted territory of changing career path, whether by choice or as a result of redundancy, I do not believe that I could have got in the driving seat let alone stayed the course without his support!

Working with Steve has helped me focus on my ultimate destination and enabled me to be in the driving seat of my chosen career path. Until I started the programme, I was blinded by the oncoming headlights and stuck in a jam. Unlike the M25, Steve’s Career Navigation Cycle process enabled me to set off and change direction without losing sight of where I ultimately wanted to be.

I would also recommend Winning Though Redundancy – Six steps to navigate your way to a brighter future’ an absolute must read and having Steve as your navigator on the most exciting journey you will ever make!”  Bill Stewart

Working with Steve has made a real and lasting difference to my life – sounds dramatic but it’s true. His way of working and career coaching really resonated with me; we had fun but got through a whole load of difficult stuff! Steve helped me to find a good work/life balance, to recognise what I had to offer and to have the confidence to demonstrate it to others. As a result, I am more focused at work, achieving great results that others are recognising and happier at home. Steve has continued to be a confidante and friend to me and I am so pleased to have met him.” Lisa Hughes
