Uniquely Stepping Up Leader Mental Talent

Steve Bruckshaw

My name is Steve Bruckshaw. I am a certified principal business psychologist & leader coach & approved professional in outdoor learning. I help leaders feel comfortable with the uncomfortable. I deliver contemporary evidence based behavioural science & cognitive/eco coaching psychology.  I draw on natures intelligence & align this to explorer psychology for high performance leader development. My style is natural & exacting. I use the ‘Challenging Coaching’ FACTS framework.

I seek to work 121 with original minds. My passion is to blend learning across mental toughness, natures intelligence & explorer cognition traits to help step up leader mental development.


As a Psychologist & Coach, I specialise in developing leader mental skills & personal sustainability. I help leaders learn from nature & exploration.  I have many years of professional experience from an eclectic corporate & learning & development arena. I provide a wealth of knowledge & perspective.

My career positions have included; Head of Learning & Development, Senior Public Affairs Specialist, National Leadership Trainer & running my own business now for over 20 years.


I have a Master’s Degree in People & Training Development, a Social Psychology Degree, advanced coaching & psychological accreditations. I hold a Psychometric European User Licence & membership with the BPS. I hold ILM fellowship.

I am a Certified Principal Business Psychologist with The Association of Business Psychology.

I have memberships with The Special Board of Coaching Psychologists (BPS) & The Institute of Outdoor Learning (APIOL). I am also an NLP Master Practioner. (I only use empirical evidenced NLP elements)


I am available, to speak at events on Leadership From Nature & Ecopsychology for Business. Past keynotes at The Assoc of Chief Executives & AXA Division National Sales Conferences were well received for their difference & thinking challenge.


My passion is nature & walking in the Dales & Lakes. Sustainability leadership development is also a key focus. We are all wired to be outside. But the artificial world stops people from renewing through nature. Tough Well-Being linked to natures principles, are vital leader elements.

The great outdoors is an environment where physical space tugs at the heart, fitness & challenges the mind. This translates into clean thinking & mindfulness. The business & my values are: Nerve, Altruism, Tolerance, Understanding, Resilience and Encouragement. (NATURE)
