Steve holloway

An Ashridge Accredited Executive Coach with an MSc in Executive Coaching, Steve has over 15 years of corporate experience in the FMCG sector covering roles in Engineering Project Management, Marketing Innovation and Learning and Development.

Steve is an Executive Coach, Team Coach and Group Facilitator with  extensive experience in senior leadership positions and 8 years’ experience as a professional coach and facilitator. Drawing on both psychological and neuroscientific principles, Steve is skilled at working with people to identify behaviours which have often brought success, to maximise future impact and value. Steve has worked at a systems-level; encouraging clients to explore their own issues, how this might be creating blocks, and how best to overcome them.

Currently undertaking further studies in Systemic Team Coaching, Steve is experienced in coaching clients from graduate to C-suite and coaching intact teams up to board level, with an emphasis on building self-awareness, delivering a tangible ROI, and supporting swift and lasting results.

Coaching approach

Steve's’ focus is on building a relationship with high trust and rapport through sharing of experiences both at a personal and professional level. He believes that the quality of the relationship is more important than any of the techniques used!   

Steve draws upon a range of psychological and neuro-scientific principles to help clients develop insight into their issues and figure out how to build new behaviours to create value and impact for themselves, their teams, their organisations and (where possible) wider society. This is done through asking challenging questions, offering support and guidance, actively listening, and paying attention to what is happening in the coaching relationship itself as a guide to deeper insight. 

What to expect

Coachees are expected to be engaged, open and committed. Steves role is to facilitate the coaching process, provide support and challenge the coachee. Thinking and reflection will be required throughout, and between sessions.

  • Assessments or pre-work where required
