As a Company Secretary, she also understands the power dynamics and corruption that plagues these organisations. The needs of organisations for leaders and managers to manage with a coaching and mentoring style fuelled her development of Leadership Coaching and Mentoring training which she piloted and was well received by Transnet Freight Rail Leadership. She will be rolling out the training at Alexander Forbes and plans to empower organisational leadership through this training to enable them to have more structured and fruitful conversations with employees and to ensure that communication of the strategy is clear and agreed by all for optimum performance. The training is also aimed at ensuring greater awareness in leaders and managers or themselves as well as their employees as they learn to approach differences with curiosity and compassion instead of judgment. Lorraine’s keen interest lies in addressing the performance and structural issues that hinder state owned companies from achieving at their peak and seeks to identify gaps between systems, processes, policies and actual successful implementation which is inevitably related to the behaviour and attitudes of people.
