Steve’s Journey to Leadership Coaching

As an ex-Royal Air Force veteran, Steve is well versed in leadership roles and responsibilities. Having served 26 years in the UK Air Force, he honed his skills of conflict resolution, creative problem solving, effective communication, and much more through direct, field experience.

His skills as a Basic Recruit Sergeant required an innate ability to select those who are leaders and those who could be taught to lead. Often himself having been put in the most demanding conditions a human can experience, Steve’s contribution to the Royal Air Force was of vital importance. His 26 year tenure in military service not only provided himself with experience as a leadership trainer, but his knowledge was passed down through recruits thereafter.

After the tough decision to leave the military lifestyle and resettle abroad in Australia, Steve posed himself a question. Can my experiences have a positive impact on others? Can I inspire others to lead and offer value?

He set out to condense his years of experience with leadership, as well as incorporating foundational knowledge of human behaviour. Over the past 20 years, Steve has been training and exercising these lessons through various programs. Working with both small and large enterprises, their teams, and management level staff to build better outcomes for companies.

Working with leaders in his business, Steve recognised that an additional knowledge gap for executive and leaders existed. He found that within companies, obstacles and problems arose that could not be solved with just team training but needed direct intervention with decision makers. These leaders were calling out for guidance, training, or mentoring to refine their skills and start approaching hardship effectively.

Coupled with his extensive military background and 25 years of leadership experience, Steve Barker Leadership Coaching was created to serve the executives, leaders, and decision makers in businesses.
