Find out a bit more about Steve

Where has your passion for performance come from?

I believe passionately in the development of people and helping them to recognise and begin to fulfil their potential. Seeing someone build in confidence and self-belief is fantastic and rewarding. I have been fortunate to work in a wide range of organisations with different cultures, challenges and approaches to people and their development. Knowing that you can make a difference to peoples’ working lives with the right mind-set and approach is what gets me excited.

What do you think gives organisations the winning edge?

Where leaders create a winning environment and feedback is seen as the lifeblood of the organisation. When leaders manage the tension between what is required right now and providing a compelling vision for the future. There exists a “golden thread” that links what everyone does every day and inspires them to give of their best.
