Steve is a seasoned coach and consultant, and practice supervisor, whose own practice is informed by inquiry, dialogue, and complexity-based approaches to creative change and innovation.
His previous experience combines a multi-faceted military career as a highly experienced operational fast-jet pilot, trainer and leader with high-level strategic and governmental organisational interventions. His work with safety culture brought together international agencies and contributed to a significant structural shift in RAF aviation training as he led the RAF ‘Human Factors’ specialisation and initiated critical aviation safety interventions across the MoD.
Steve provides a pragmatic and critical practitioner focus to his work founded on his experience in dynamic, conflicted, high-stakes environments. He emphasises the importance of awareness and purpose to personal and organisational change.
He holds a number of academic Faculty positions, and teaches and supervises at Master’s and Doctorate levels.
He is an experienced coach and action learning group facilitator.
He began his professional life as a young photographer in the hustle and bustle of London’s fashion and advertising business before following a dream to fly jets in the RAF. His fascination for photography switched to working with the ‘picture’ - and this has returned to be a central part of his life as a coach. He splits his time between his professional consulting work and academia, and his photo-dialogue work, which he hopes inspire others to find creativity, clarity and purpose in life as they ‘see differently.’
