Peak Awareness

I have learnt so much from the Outset team, who have been proactive, informative and knowledgeable. I now have a clearly defined goal that is absolutely within my reach!

Steve’s story

Having worked in over 40 jobs, Steve quickly achieved what he wanted from each role, and found that he became bored easily. Struggling to find that perfect job, he decided to start looking for something that he really enjoyed doing, where there was plenty of scope for diversification and that would keep him interested most of the time. Plus, having a young son, Steve ideally wanted a job that could fit flexibly around spending time with him.

“I fully believe that everybody has the potential (and is capable) of achieving excellence. I am a fun person, full of enthusiasm, and I love a challenge. Most of all, I have a large smile which I get pleasure from sharing. My skills are with people and my favourite sport is people watching; therefore what better business to be in than inspirational motivation!”

Steve came to Outset Cornwall for advice on how to start his new business, and found that the workshops offered more than he had first expected. “One of the most amazing things I discovered was how to clarify my aims and objectives through business planning, and that the whole process is so important for understanding your business. I have learnt so much from the Outset team, who have been proactive, informative and knowledgeable. I now have a clearly defined goal that is absolutely within my reach!

“Peak Awareness is all about inspiring and motivating individuals and teams to make tangible, positive changes. All walks of life can be inspired to exceed personal and professional expectations!”

In addition to the motivation side of the business, Steve has recently launched the Cornwall Laughter Club that holds regular laughter yoga sessions across the county. “Our mission is to get Cornwall laughing as a form of exercise, health and wellbeing – plus it’s great fun!”

In speaking about his new business, Steve adds, “We do not fix. We challenge, nurture and encourage, utilising any sport or mode of life, but most often the radical sport of surfing, the powerful process of performance coaching and the revolutionary concept of laughter yoga. Peak Awareness brings life and energy to boardrooms, seminars, lives, futures and dreams. We understand what motivates and keep techniques simple by blending cutting edge research with our own practical experiences.”

Steve successfully applied for the Outset Cornwall micro grant, which has enabled him to set up a specialised coaching room and office. As a consequence, Steve can now offer coaching via video conferencing, telephone and email, as well as face to face.
