Her work with teams to establish team purpose, vision and values to drive team cohesion, alignment, contribution and excellence are a key focus area.
Wendy is active in addressing the leadership gap and chooses to work with leaders who are obsessed with bringing out the best in themselves and their people by equipping them with the practices and behaviours to support this intention. She is focused on establishing leaders who are granted authority by their people and therefore willingness to make an above and beyond contribution.
As an associate consultant of Legitimate Leadership, Wendy is able to offer the Legitimate Leadership Framework, which provides a platform for understanding trust in management and its corollary: the commitment of employees to the leadership of an enterprise. Legitimate Leadership delivers a framework for consistency of leadership practice and behaviour to ensure a culture of legitimacy, trust, contribution and accountability. Creating a shift from taking, to giving at work.
Wendy spent the last 24 years in the corporate environment. Her area of specialisation has been within the marketing and brand strategy arena where she has worked across various industries, namely, Toyota SA Marketing, MTN cellular and banking (Standard, Absa and Nedbank). Her career saw many varying roles, which spanned product-market planning, loyalty and CRM, product and services marketing, and group brand strategy development and management. She has led teams within the marketing arena with a focus on building the business and brands. It is in this context that she discovered her true passion for facilitating the growth and development of the people around her.
Coaching and Facilitation Work
As an integral coach her focus is on achieving full competence and capacity within the multiple dimensions of what it takes to be an impactful, mindful, engaged and contributing human being or organization. Focusing on the quality of relationship with self and others; thoughts and feelings; ability to take action; and systems/processes; she works with individuals and teams to organise themselves for clearly defined and measurable outcomes.
The process is structured and aligned to specific purpose and outcomes, with the intention of developing skills and competencies for sustainable change.
She is passionate about optimising leadership performance, ensuring consistent experience delivery and employee engagement through facilitating a deeper understanding of “self” and the impact on the “team” and in turn, the team impact within the larger organisation. Exploring essentially the “I’s” that make up the “WE” which in turn creates the “IT”.
A significant area of focus is team formation and dynamics around Brand Experience Delivery and defining the WHY, HOW and WHAT of teams; with a key outcome being the establishment of purpose and the unique contribution to the organisation. Establishing the rules of engagement, behaviours and key outputs offers leadership and teams the opportunity to operate cohesively for a common set of goals.
Committed to facilitating leaders and teams, who recognise that business sustainability and success is driven through maximising the contribution of each individual within the system.
Wendy uses the Ennea International 5 Lens Assessment to help clients gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the reason for their adaptive programming and the impact and limitations posed by these patterns. Once these are understood, the development path opens up new possibilities for a richer and more fulfilling life in all contexts.
