STEVE LENAGH

Steve joined the HEW team in 2022, with a clear vision and desire to help others be all they can be.
 
Having left school at 16 to become a professional footballer, Steve’s earliest experiences (and life lessons) came in the way of a premier league football club. With hindsight, he acknowledges that this is where he learnt the importance of a strong mindset, the need to block out external noise, and the confidence to walk your own path.


15 years as a police officer followed, which included a wide range of roles, and a requirement to get the ‘job done’ regardless of how difficult the circumstances were. While knowing a change of direction was needed, Steve acknowledges the attributes which have been enhanced during his service, which now serve him well as a coach.


Renowned for his enthusiasm and ability to connect with others, Steve is both inspiring and motivational in his approach, while acknowledging the importance of humour and fun while working towards any goal. Steve’s authentic approach ensures strong relationships are formed, built on trust, and in the knowledge that commitment and discipline is at the heart of any success.
