Where Did It Begin?

We’d like to introduce you to Jason Lister. Jason is Managing Director of ATS – Advanced Traditional Screeding a top-tier floor screeding, resin, underfloor heating, and consulting specialist based in Fife, Scotland.

Jason has been aligned with The Pathway for over seven years and is living proof of the extraordinary results businesses can achieve with the right experience and guidance.

Jason founded the business in 2014 and approached The Pathway at the tail end of 2018. He approached Stevie because he had taken the business as far as he could take it alone.

With the help of The Pathway, Jason went from a self proclaimed “floor-screeder” to boss of a flooring company to Managing Director of an award-winning, multi-divisional organisation called ATS Group.

The video you can see here relates to the first three years of Jason’s journey with The Pathway. Hear what he had to say about his early journey with us.

As a business owner sometimes you can be like ‘What do I do now?’ Stevie is always there to support you. If you feeling lost or are looking for guidance I can highly recommend getting in touch with Stevie.

We Know it is Hard!

We know all too well the demands that come with running a business.

The endless tasks, the constant firefighting, the pressure to keep things afloat. It’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind, to focus solely on the here and now.

But what about tomorrow’s agenda? What about the focus for next week, next month, or even the planning for your twelve-month road map? Has this been mapped out?

When does the cost of inaction actually outweigh the cost of investing in the future of your Team and the future of your Business?

We know all too well about the loneliness when trying to grow a business amidst the chaos of everyday challenges. At The Pathway, we understand the power of coaching first-hand. That’s why our team is continuously coached themselves. We believe that without ongoing development, you’ll only ever grow into what you are now.

What is interesting about our relationship with ATS is that both ATS and The Pathway have ambitious growth strategies, and both companies receive strategic support every step of the way. At the The Pathway, we practice what we preach and it is this commitment to growth & support that makes us a catalyst for transformational change across the industry.

If you go at it alone, your outcomes & achievements will be constrained by what YOU know. If you have support then you harness the collective knowledge and make your potential truly limitless

What Other Clients Have Said

‘The Pathway’ has been an integral part underpinning the success of Megger in the last five years. Working with Stevie and Ryan has been a game changer for us. What’s important to me is to find trustworthy partners who challenge you to be the best you can possibly be and give you insights that you just haven’t thought about. Working with these guys is 1% participation and 99% journey – if you feel settled on something, then it’s not enough. I had the privilege to climb Kilimanjaro with Stevie in 2022 and these seven days changed my team and my life. Our company now thinks bigger, wider and more global.

Dr Jim Fairbairn OBE

CEO of Megger

True genius lies in the ability of a master strategist to have ordinary people think, see and achieve more than they normally would and to voluntarily reach for a higher level of performance. That is precisely the effect that Stevie Kidd has. His style is an eclectic amalgamation of noted leaders, both crisp and effective. He is precise in speaking to a person’s “listening” and, bottom line, the results speak for themselves.
