What My Clients Say
I was introduced to Steve by my sister who he had coached a few years back with great success. I was at the end of my tether, having had numerous job application rejections and failed interviews. I had all but had given up on my job search, lost motivation and feared I would never rekindle my previous executive banking career. I had lost all my confidence and self-belief and was really bad at interviews. That’s how Steve found me!
At the height of my career, I was a high flying city banking executive, who had come from a humble upbringing and I loved my job. I unfortunately had to give up my job, as my wife became very ill and I became the carer for my daughter. I thought this would only be a short career break but through more bad luck by the time I was ready and able to rekindle my career it had become a 5 year break. I found myself always having to justify my time out to recruiters and employers and unable to sell myself in a positive light, as I felt a failure. Things had got really bad. I was getting more rejections than interviews and down to my last shot at the big time. This was the job I really wanted but it seemed out of reach.
I’m so glad we met. Steve coached me to understand my strengths, my positive attributes and how I could turn the negatives of my time out of the sector into positives. He focused on helping me see things from a different perspective, how I had set up my own trading business, learnt many new business skills, kept up to speed with the sector through a huge amount of reading, also how I had learnt to become resilient through all the challenges I faced.
My answers changed. With Steve’s interview skills coaching and focused practice, came confidence. I put my trust in Steve and whatever time I phoned him, he would always offer encouragement. Then my body language changed and my attitude. I made it through three rounds of tough interviews, then was called to an informal meeting. Steve told me this must be a positive sign, just to show interest and be my natural self and I would get the job. It seemed to go well and suddenly I believed.
I can’t tell you how happy and relieved I was when finally offered the job in a leading city institution! I have told others about ‘the Steve Preston effect’. Not only is Steve a great coach but a gentleman too and I can’t recommend him highly enough.
I was recommended to contact Steve by a friend, who felt he could help me overcome my failure to achieve the promotion my colleagues and bosses kept telling me I deserved. As good as I was at my job, I just couldn’t get past the final interview stage.
Steve quickly isolated why I was having problems at interviews. After only a couple of hours of intensive coaching, Steve helped me hone my technique, answer difficult questions in a confident and compelling way, overcome my nerves and self-doubts and completely change my mind-set, so I could only see myself being successful and in that Matrons uniform.
Sure enough this is exactly what happened. After many previous failed interviews and on the verge of giving up hope of my expected promotion, I finally ‘nailed the interview’ and landed my dream job!
Steve’s Interview Skills Coaching made all the difference to my outlook and interview approach. I could not have achieved this job without his assistance and guidance. Steve, made me realise that I was good enough to do the role but it was only my mind-set that was holding me back. I cannot thank you enough.
Having attended Steve’s Masterclass, and follow-up careers coaching, I can honestly attest to Steve’s commitment, objectivity and clarity.
With Steve’s input I was able to: find my way out of joblessness and lack of direction, set initial work search goals, progressing to a purposeful career plan, grow in interview skills and clarity to prepare me for each step. The result is a new level of confidence and belief in my own competence and capabilities, that helped me achieve a full-time vocational role.
I was introduced to Steve at a time when I was considering my future career options. Steve brought a wealth of experience, tools & insight to help me understand myself better and how I could approach my career, job searches and interviews.
Having recently gone through a redundancy process I called on Steve’s services again and he was an integral part of my transitioning successfully to a new role.
Steve was the first professional Manager I had back in the 1980’s. After 20 years our paths crossed again when I was stuck in a rut and in real need to develop my career. I contacted Steve having had a bad experience with a well known large career management consultancy and was getting nowhere! I used Steve’s coaching experience to identify my key skills and marketability and help create a CV that would stand out from the rest and get in front of potential employers. Within a matter of weeks I was getting interest.
Steve then coached me how to win the interview, as like many sales people, although I can sell pretty much any product I was struggling to sell myself in the most effective way and create impact at an interview. I managed to achieve this and land a role with a superb company. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Steve to any professional or executive who wants to move on or change their career and needs the expert advice and one to one coaching that he offers”
