Coaching speciality details
As an experienced coach with almost 2500 coaching hours I have repeatedly seen those who commit to the process grow personally, begin to make better decisions, experience better relationships, build better teams and lead better performance and achieve better results. Having worked mainly with leaders in organisations, including C-suite, Executives, and all levels of management, has enabled me to significantly deepen my understanding of how organisations work and of the challenges faced by leaders in organisations. With more than 40 years of both formal and informal experience in working with a broad spectrum of people, including many in various leadership roles, I feel ideally equipped to facilitate growth and transformation for individuals within teams and organisations. Whatever my role has been over the last 40 years, my work and life experience has centred on helping people. My core motivation is to see others achieve positive transformation and forward momentum. I thrive on helping others grow in their personal mastery, develop more effective habits, and live more purposefully. Leadership Development and performance are particular areas of interest for me and these are often aspects I am asked to help clients grow in. I have, however, helped client’s achieve a broad spectrum of goals and business objectives. Organisational challenges that have been part of the focus of coaching, facilitation or consulting engagements include: leadership development, leading performance, organisational culture, talent management, Employee engagement, breaking silos, change management, developing a coaching capacity, succession planning, productivity and creating growth.

Most of my coaching sessions take place online at present but I do travel within the Johannesburg / Pretoria area to meet either at a client's office or a suitable public venue. Zoom IDs are specific to each coaching session to ensure the highest level of security.
Although my degree is geared toward communications I have had a wonderfully varied working experience; one that has helped me gain a solid understanding of business and to nurture Leadership, Management and people skills. This includes a stint in the public sector, a great opportunity to help take a successful business to the next level and a fulfilling season serving as a pastor. I then had an opportunity to launch and establish an ‘in-house’ publishing company for a multinational non-profit entity. Acting as MD of this company for 7 years was a great stretching experience and one that has certainly added to the understanding and skills I bring to the leadership context. With more than 40 years of both formal and informal experience in working with people and in various leadership roles, I feel ideally equipped to facilitate growth and transformation for individuals and teams. My personal style in coaching and facilitation is rooted in this passion to help people and is an intuitive style for me. Faith, family, friendships and integrity are some of the values that I cherish. I have been married to Riana for 37 years, and counting. We have an amazing 27 year old daughter, Jessica.
Coaching method / approach
My approach is to co-create a process that is suited to the client rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. To that end, I prefer to discuss the desired outcomes in some detail prior to beginning a coaching engagement to ensure that the correct business solution is co-designed. My role is to partner with you in achieving an outcome that will best serve you and any stakeholders impacted by what we work on together. A full coaching engagement would often be a series of between 6 and 12 coaching sessions but I would also be open to working with you for fewer sessions should you only require limited help from me as a coach. More and more I find that it is necessary to coach leaders in the context of those they lead and we would work out a way together to ensure that is taken into account. For example, it is often useful for a coachee’s line manager to have input in the process and this is built into my coaching process when necessary. I naturally draw on the models and methodology from my coach training, including the work that the NeuroLeadership Institute has done in using neuroscience research to enhance coaching effectiveness. Over the years I have, however, read widely and incorporate a wide range of tools that I find useful in stimulating relevant thinking for my clients.
