Steve R.'s Profile

Leadership and Team Development Consultant
Steve loves working in training and consultancy. He gets great satisfaction from helping organisations become the entities they say they’d like to be. He is committed to helping people to achieve their potential. His enthusiasm for the work grows daily and it is because of this that he has inspired many people over many years. He has come a long way since he started his professional career as a Civil Engineer, working in the UK and overseas. Whilst driving back from the Himalayas in 1976 he began to think about a career move and eventually opted to do a Post-grad Teaching Certificate.

He quickly moved into training and development at the Brathay Hall Trust where he spent 8 years, the last two years as the Director of Training, at the Leadership and Development Centre. He then joined a small private consultancy before becoming a founder and Managing Director of Leading Edge Ltd in 1989.

Steve has been at the forefront of developing a distinctive approach to running programmes and has worked with a wide variety of manufacturing, utility, retail, construction, pharmaceutical, banking, national and local government organisations.

Steve is a licensed Myers-Briggs Type Indicator user, is an accredited facilitator for DDI Training Modules and is qualified for Level A and B occupational tests by the British Psychological Society. He is also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development and a Member of the Institute of Leadership and Management.
