ICF status: PCC (Professional Certified Coach)
Locations: Johannesburg (Sandton) | Globally by Skype
Summary: I work with emerging leaders, high potentials, entrepreneurs and executives who want to harness their passion, drive and creativity to make a powerful impact in line with their vision for themselves.

My coaching work is founded upon the premise that the great leaders know themselves and lead from a place of self-awareness, transparency, curiosity, and vision.

Passionate about people development I love to challenge existing ways of thinking and hold that a flexible and creative mindset is key to effective leadership. My coaching style is non-formal, easy-going, creative and clear. There is always a bit of humour to everything in life.

Having lived in Eastern Europe, Hong Kong, and South Africa, I developed strong interest and high sensitivity for cultural diversity, cross-cultural challenges and opportunities.

I co-create and lead experiential-learning workshops that create a shift in the mindset and facilitate change. The workshops are based on a Live-it; Learn-it method mixing fun, depth and passion of experiencing the concepts with the powerful debriefs and use of theory and proven principles. I believe in learning from practice, prototyping, co-creation and the power of relationships.

My work is based on Co-active® coaching and leadership models and Theory U methodology.

I trained at the Coaches Training Institute (CTI). Its Co-Active Coach® training program is widely recognised as the most rigorous coach training and certification program in the industry. CTI is the oldest and largest in-person coach training organisation in the world and has trained over 35,000 coaches as well as employees in more than half of the Fortune 100 companies. Co-Active® coaching is the most powerful change-creating method I know.

I am a graduate of CTI's unique Leadership training, where I learned the skills and tools to empower my clients to recognise their capacity to lead in all areas of their lives.
