What My Clients Say (key references to the Career Navigation Cycle)

The 6 Step Career Navigation Cycle process designed by Steve is absolutely genius and has shown me that patience is key on this journey of self-discovery!

Mel Lovell

The 6 Step Career Navigation Cycle process described in the book is a simple concept but is thorough, thought-provoking and affirming. Knowing that I have fully considered my career and life choices has given me reassurance and confidence in the decisions I have made since. 

Jim Enright

The 6 Step Navigation Cycle helps you like a friend by your side. You’ll learn loads and gain insights on how to positively move forward. I found Steve’s “Career Navigation Cycle” to be very helpful. All six steps are key!


Steve silently takes you on a journey supporting and encouraging you every step of the way to take stock and evaluate what you really want, by taking you through the six steps of the Career Navigation Cycle! Then after a process of transition, he says goodbye to you at the door of your new career/business. You are a completely different person having gone through a complete emotional, physical and psychological transformation, now with a smile on your face and a clear understanding of who you are, what you do best and where you are heading.


The online career change course has indeed enabled me to, as you suggest throughout, dig deeper which is big progress for me. I responded well to your video presentations,  introducing concepts and coaching me through each Step of your Cycle process. It was easier for me to address this in my own space and as a result, I have now made real breakthroughs!


Having experienced the ‘Steve Preston effect’, I am 100% confident in recommending him to any executive or professional needing help with their career development. I came to Steve at a rather low point of my career, as I had been blindsided by an out-of-the-blue redundancy that shook my self-belief and confidence to the core.

After undertaking due diligence with 5 different career coaches and outplacement specialists, I chose to work with Steve as, within a few minutes of talking to me, he displayed a rapid understanding of my situation and my emotions. He was able to explain, in real terms, how his executive career coaching and Six Step Cycle could help me to regain control over my career and life.

The following few months working with Steve were made up of moments of brilliance, trauma, inspiration, humour and challenge. It was EXACTLY what I needed and I wouldn’t want to change one moment of my time with him. Ultimately, he was able to take me from a very dark and lonely place to a point where I am now in control of my future, with the confidence to develop a career under my terms and, importantly, with the right blend of work and play. Steve’s book “Winning Through Redundancy” and the exercises within is simply fantastic as is his Portfolio Careers book.

On top of all this, Steve’s impressive work is complemented by the fact that he is a wonderful human being and a gentleman. Thank you, Steve, you have changed my life for the better.

John Watson

Steve’s Executive Career Coaching 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!
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’ or ‘Winning Through Career Change’ as an absolute must read and having Steve as your navigator on the most exciting journey you will ever make!”

Bill Stewart

Steve’s knowledge and understanding of the Science of work and career is exemplary. His ability to see how to help others to realign their internal belief systems with their need to work produces explosive results. This helps to attain new goals and create new work pathways that had not previously been considered available or possible before. Working with Steve through his 6 Step Career Navigation Cycle process is inspiring, creative and an essential rewiring for the brain of somebody at a dead end. 

Steve has a friendly and personable manner which makes working with him a pleasure. I thoroughly recommend Steve!
