Steve has worked with The Colour Works since 2005 and is well thought of by clients for his innovative, supportive, and bespoke approaches.
Steve believes in working to develop the untapped potential that exists in the workforce and has a passion for using the Insights Discovery model and his wide experience across the business and public sectors to enhance leadership capabilities. He is most interested in helping middle and senior level leaders to develop their own capabilities and move forward with confidence.
Steve’s sensitivity to the needs of individuals, alongside his enthusiasm and passion, connects effectively with organisations and teams. His forensic listening skills, flexibility and adaptability, means that he facilitates development activities to ensure that individuals identify, and commit to, their own solutions. He firmly believes that collaborative approaches are the key to sustainable futures in all organisations, public and private.
Recent areas of work have included introducing and using Insights Discovery to support leadership development in schools, manufacturing, local authorities, social enterprises and service industries. Focus areas have included developing skills in coaching and mentoring, leadership, resolving conflict, effective performance conversations, and positive approaches to change. He uses facilitative techniques in his work and has worked on a number of international assignments in Europe, USA, West Africa, Central and South East Asia, supporting significant change programmes.
When not working to enhance personal potential Steve enjoys travelling, hill and coast walking and supporting his three children as they develop their own careers. He voluntarily supports the International Association of Facilitators as their regional treasurer, and the International Space School Education Trust where he supports and leads aspirational programmes for young people to develop their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
