I am a founder of Lead Africa Coaching (PTY) LTD and a Credentialed Coach with Coaches and Mentors of South Africa (COMENSA) and server on the COMENSA Coaching Supervision Portfolio Committee. As a coach for over 10 years, I share my knowledge, experience and expertise gathered over 30 years in the field of Business, Executive and Non-Executive Company Directorship and Management. I want to bring excitement, enthusiasm, and passion into people’s lives – Have fun while working smarter to create a meaningful and purposeful lives for them.
I started my career by qualifying as a teacher majoring in Business Management, then went further to acquire a degree in Psychology studying human behaviour and mind. My vision though was to explore the field of business and management where I grew up through the ranks, into Senior Management and Executive position of some of the top listed JSE Companies such a Foschini Group, JD Group, MTN, Liberty Properties, Rand Merchant Bank Properties and Emira Listed Property Fund etc. I have held several Chairmanship of companies and organisations in South Africa such as Mintek, National Arts Council of South Africa, Building and Construction Industry Medical Aid, Mpumalanga Economic Advisory Council etc. and I am a Member of The Institute of Directors (IOD) in Southern Africa. Currently pursuing my studies for Chartered Director CD(SA).
As a Life, Business, Executive Leadership and Management coach specialising in personal growth and development, I encourage clients to use self-reflection and self-awareness, while creating new insights and possibilities, by breaking through barriers, boundaries and limiting beliefs that prevent them from being who they want to be or even accomplishing what they want in their careers and lives.
Some of my qualifications include a degree of Master of Business Leadership University of South Africa (UNISA) SBL, Post Graduate Diploma in Company Law -University of Johannesburg, Investment Analysis & Portfolio Management UNISA and Executive Global Leadership Programme Duke University (Delhi India) amongst others. I am certified Master Life Coach by American Union of Neuro-Linguistics Programming (NLP) and Certified Executive and Management coach by the University of Cape Town. I completed a Life Coaching Certificate from New Skills Academy. These qualifications and experience over the years in Business Leadership and Executive Management coaching and the earlier mentioned qualifications in teaching Business Management and a degree in Psychology, all have equipped me to be a well-rounded coach with a vast knowledge, experience, and expertise in goal setting, personal growth and development and handling human behaviours.
An avid long-distance marathon runner who participates in some of the best marathons in the world such as the New York City Marathon, London Marathon, Paris Marathon, Comrades Marathon, and Cape Town Two Oceans Marathons in South Africa etc. I use the analogy of running or sports to clear my mind and re-train the mindset of self-reflection, positive high performance, and achievement – Finishing every race is such an achievement, powerful skills learned from running such as persistence, consistency, resilience, self-discipline etc translate into my field of focus on goal setting, personal growth, and development.
I am a world traveller and an explorer and been to over 50 countries in the world already and travelled to both North Pole (Arctic Regions) and South Pole (Antarctica), also ventured into the White Nile River rafting and Gorilla Wildlife Trails in Uganda. I use an analogy of life as a constant exploration of the unknow changes that can take place in our lives. I coach based on the methodology of 5E’s Engage Evolve, Explore, Expand and Evaluate. I coach people to evolve into greatness through expanding their self-awareness and exploring the options available to them in their lives.
