Client Testimonials

“You are not afraid to say what you think. You are neither selfish nor defensive: you open yourself to other people, share your insights and feelings with them.  This has encouraged many people to likewise open doors for you, invite you into their space and share insights with you. This is because you are a concerned person: the values you strive for are those relating to growth, eradication of disadvantage, non-racialism, and working together.”

Why do we need executive coaching?

Many factors are driving the explosive growth in coaching. According to the International Coaching Federation (“I.C.F.”), 86 percent of organizations saw a return on their coaching investment, and 96 percent of those coached said they would repeat the process. Coaching is a valuable strategic leadership support tool to tap into our hidden potential, stimulate our personal and leadership growth, and importantly, help executives navigate turbulence and complexity to meet current demands, challenges, threats, and opportunities.
