About the Author

Recognised as The Career Catalyst , Steve Preston is an accredited, expert career coach, outplacement consultant and has spent ten years running a successful career and people development consultancy, SMP Solutions. He has coached and transformed the lives of thousands of people from many business and sporting sectors in making a successful career transition often facing and following redundancy. Over a decade ago, Steve went through his own redundancy and a long and painful career transition journey before ultimately achieving a breakthrough career change. As a result of his experiences he became determined to provide other people with an effective and simple process to win through redundancy and navigate the career transition maze. He immersed himself in the whole field of career and personal development and discovered that there is a definite process to winning through redundancy to achieve a successful career change or transition. The result was the SMP Career Navigation Cycle, which has proven its worth with many hundreds of satisfied clients from all sectors. Steve is a regular speaker at many high-profile career events, including conferences for major organisations, the Public Services Human Resources Conference, Forum 3, One Life Live and other events with the Chartered Management Institute and Chartered Institute of Personnel Development. He has also run highly successful career transition programmes in conjunction with Job Centre Plus, breakthrough career transition Masterclasses and online programmes. He has recently published a 4 CD audio book, I Want a Career Change 6 Steps to Navigate the Way to a Brighter Future . It features interviews with Steve about his career transition journey, winning through redundancy, the six month psychological barrier, the importance of doing what you love, the mistakes people often make and the six steps to successful career change. Steve has written many articles about successful career change and transition for trade journals, career and personal development websites and his own blog. He was also the Career Doctor for London for a number of years. Steve enjoys sharing his knowledge and experience to inspire other people and is very active in social media forums and groups and is developing an increasingly strong following in the UK and abroad on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Steve is now building on his position as The Career Catalyst ; someone who provides a blueprint to enable others to make their own successful career change or transition, following redundancy by turning the threat into an exciting new opportunity. I am passionate about helping you achieve a successful career breakthrough. I get a huge buzz from seeing your confidence and self-belief soar to achieve fulfilment in your career and life

I can honestly say that this collection of audio CD's has provided plenty of thought provoking ideas during my time spent driving in the car.

Just over 2 years ago I decided I wasn't happy with the way my work life was taking over my personal life. Since then I've moved to a new town in the UK and embarked on a journey of personal development for the first time in my life. I've read lots of books and listened to lots of different audio CD's during this time and can say that this is genuinely an inspiring and useful tool for anybody looking to change their life for the better.

One of the distinct differences with this audio book is the way in which the information and ideas are passed to the listener. The style of questions and solutions between Steve and Debbie really helped me resonate with some of my own feelings, fears and goals to build on my life and improve things for the better for my family.

Overall.. A breath of fresh air!!

I should prefix this review by explaining that I am fortunate to be currently undergoing the SMP Career Coaching Programme and am beginning my journey of rediscovery. Having attended the first wonderful `Career Change and Transition Masterclass', I have truly valued listening to this set of CDs (lasting for some 2 ¼ hours) to help give me greater perspective and an opportunity for self-reflection.

The content comes across much like a `podcast' where the Director, Steve Preston, tells a story in a very relaxed and informal style that will simply draw you in as he gives a brutally honest appraisal of his personal journey and the power of following his `Navigation Cycle'. Steve explains how he transformed his own life and is a real example of the phoenix rising from the ashes. For those of us who may have lost a job, or indeed `lost in the job', this listening experience provides a consistent stream of golden nuggets of advice, reassurance, support and comfort.

Steve is clearly passionate about this subject and in his relaxed style he'll tell you many real life success stories and the importance of following, but adhering to, a cyclical process where you will `Reap What You Sow'. You are encouraged throughout to become the `Architect' of your own future where transformation follows much self-reflection of skills/attributes to build confidence, determine direction and ultimately lead to taking positive action to achieve success. There is added value when Steve is joined, interviewed and challenged by one of his key Associates, Debbie Smith, who is a well established personal branding guru.

So if you're looking for a new job, or stuck in the `Velvet Rut', this listening programme is a must to help inspire you to re-evaluate and think seriously about your personal circumstances, and realise the consequences of that daunting question "What will happen if you don't change?". So, steer for the horizon .................

Easy to listen - Easy to follow - Easy to see why with the correct tools - anyone can indeed change......

It is extremely thought provoking and will inspire you to reflect and guide you through change....

For those that have not previously followed the 'Steps' it will provide a background giving real examples of individuals 'inspiring' journeys.

For those that have been fortunate to have been through the 'Steps' it acts as a motivational reminder, a chance to reflect, refocus and tune some of the steps to move once again through the cycle to an even better and more positive future...

I would recommend this for anyone that is 'stuck' - anyone that is thinking of or wants to know 'what if' or for anyone that is simply wanting to understand where to start! It is scary but this CD demonstrates through example how it does not have to be and how you can make a positive change. It discusses portfolio careers, it discusses branding it discusses a number of areas at a sensible pace that can be followed.

Great CD that refreshed and re-motivated me to think back over my own journey and jogged me to replay a few steps to further improve and focus on my current opportunities - none of which would have been as positive had it not been for Steve Preston & his team....

This course really assists you in understanding the importance of developing your personal brand coupled with engaging with the exceptional value of social media. Employers, Investors and Headhunters are now using Social Content such as Linked In as a research tool to find the best quality candidates to fufil key roles. I am absolutely sure that this program in many cases will assist you discover your hidden talents that will prepare you for a transformation in your career path. Steve and Debbie highlight how interlinked our career is to our life and wellbeing, if your currently in a role that makes you unhappy or where your values are different to your organisations, this is a "must" do course. The framework that you will be guided through will help you really understand your real passions, what gets you out of bed in the morning and in my case after following the navigation cycle will help the career your looking find you, as opposed to the endless searching for another role that is similar to your current role that might be making you unhappy. To conclude these discs send you on a voyage of self discovery to get you thinking positively about yourself and your next step to give you an improved chance of finding the right job or career.
