The learning lies in the process; not the destination

To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there. Kofi Annan

Kerstin’s personal philosophy is that with the right motivation all human beings can aspire to reach phenomenal heights if they have champions who believe in them and guide them to success.

Kerstin is a compassionate individual by nature, and is able to bring insightful understanding to clients’ coaching experience which has been gathered from years of experience in consulting, coaching, mentoring, studying and her own life learnings.

Kerstin is very much a people’s person. She is an unashamed optimist with an open, intuitive and gentle manner. This allows for the process of building the bridge to personal and/or professional success to be a comfortable, natural and enjoyable one. Her ability to be assertive in a calm way makes for an even-handed and open-minded experience.

Kerstin’s passion is in empowering 21st century leaders with robust tools and techniques that will enable them to lead their teams and themselves in achieving their ultimate potential while being happy at work. The world is yearning for leaders to follow and inspire positive change.

Kerstin’s many years within corporate environments gives her the ability to identify the ‘fool’s gold’ chased by so many. This assists her to support clients in recognising the real opportunities that they may be blind to.

She is a Certified Positive Psychology Coach (CPPC) ) and completed an internationally recognised Life Coaching Diploma with the Life Coaching Institute in the United Kingdom (2010). Furthermore, she holds a Global accreditation as a Happiness @ Work Facilitator. Kerstin is part of a select Master Group, and was responsible for implementing and actively endorsing the Science of Happiness @ Work in South Africa.

Kerstin is a member of the International Coach Federation and the ICF Gauteng Chapter all networks for independent and qualified coaches. In addition, in 2012 she was the Executive Portfolio Member of the ICF Gauteng Chapter, actively sharing ideas and growing the coaching profession throughout Gauteng.

Kerstin has a Master’s Degree in Applied Positive Psychology (University of East London, United Kingdom), a B.Com Degree in Economics and Accounting and has diplomas in a variety of subjects, including senior leadership management, criminal justice and forensic auditing. She has 18 years of experience in the financial services sector, during which time she served as a corporate governance and risk director. Kerstin has a strong background in corporate business, hands-on leadership, management experience and in-depth financial understanding. Kerstin has a good understanding of the challenges that members of middle and executive management are confronted with in their professional, as well as personal lives. The intricate complexity of integrating work and family into a united, harmonious and fulfilling whole of life can be a challenging balance to obtain and maintain.

Her dedicated will to give back to the community is clearly evident in the free coaching and mentoring workshops she offers to needy communities and individuals.

Kerstin is an ICF Global internationally accredited ACC coach (2013) and she has been rigorously trained on the core competencies of coaching through a USA coach–training school (Fast Tack 2012).
