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.
"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 or aware of your true potential?
- 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?
- Would you value business coaching to help grow your business or change direction ?
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!

Below are a couple of typical testimonials from my clients:
'Winning Through Career Change'
I cannot recommend this book and the career coaching services offered by Steve enough. I found Steve after realising my current career was having a negative impact on not just my professional life, but my personal life also. I enlisted the help of Steve and with his 6 stage cycle, working on a 1:1 basis and using the book as we transitioned through.
I went into the process feeling confused, cluttered, fed up and with a negative attitude, thinking 'I'm not qualified to do anything else' and 'why would anyone want to employ me over others, perhaps more experienced in a different industry'. This book and coaching with Steve, has helped to completely dispel those negative thoughts and beliefs. The exercises that Steve uses in this book, help to unlock aspects, hidden talents, and true desires and values, which I didn't realise I had or had never considered. I am still working through the cycle, and I now have the belief and confidence to go forward and explore what else is out there, which 6 months ago, I would of felt completely out of my reach or capability.
Those looking for career change, but unsure of the hows, what's, if and but's. Those lacking the confidence and with self doubt, should consider career coaching with Steve and reading his book. Cheers Steve!!!
“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!
Executive career coaching, 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
