Steve knows a good manager can increase productivity by as much as 40%, they are the ones who demonstrate more leadership skills than management skills.


Leadership is about getting the best out of people, management is about getting the task completed.

Steve has trained many thousands of managers and his experience has shown that anyone can learn to be a leader.

The skills required are not a mystery, they can be defined, demonstrated, learned and developed irrespective of the personality of the individual.


Steve takes the structured approach of professional sports team leaders and, combined with proven business models, he inspires and educates those tasked with getting results through others.

 "I use sporting analogies and examples because I have seen first hand how powerful the motivation and development techniques are and I want others to see how they can use the same methods in business to achieve amazing results".

Ian believes that effective teams impact the world and make it a better place and we should waste no time equipping great leaders to inspire their teams and nurture great leaders for tomorrow.

Ian has spent the last 35 years leading large cross-functional and multi-national teams and he has drawn on this successful experience to develop a blueprint to help clients achieve effective teamwork and make £millions in the process!

High performing teams make faster and better decisions, align around common objectives, tap into the skills and opinions of all and they don’t waste time on politics and destructive conflict. They are more fun to work on and deliver better results, quicker.

Building high-performance teams is simpler and cheaper than you might think but does require persistence and hard work.

Whether you want to sharpen up already well-performing teams or transform dysfunctional teams into solid performers, building a culture of effective teamwork will pay massive dividends.
