How can I help you?

My clients are mature women who are dealing with significant change and managers who want to improve themselves and therefor their careers. Let me explain further.

Are you a mature woman who:

  1. Is going through significant changes in your life?
  2. Feels that there must be more to life than what you are currently experiencing?
  3. Is in emotional free-fall?
  4. Is living your life according to other people’s rules?

You CAN change your life! You don’t have to feel that there is something missing in your life; feel unfulfilled, or unequipped to deal with changes, empty and frustrated and especially without answers. This is where I join forces with you. I assist you to make a difference, have purpose and feel happy, fulfilled and self-sufficient.

Are you a first line or middle manager who wants to be able to?

  1. Improve your leadership skills through improving yourself?
  2. Deal with generational and cultural differences?
  3. Generate new, more effective habits?
  4. Deal with conflict more effectively?
  5. Motivate your team more effectively?
  6. Bridge the gap between organisational and team vision and goals?
  7. Get your team to perform optimally?

Again, this is where I can support you to identify your areas of improvement, whether it is a current strength or developmental area, and then help you to achieve your desired results in a trusting, supportive environment.

Who am I?

I am a developmental and transformational life and business coach who works with individuals and in organisations to help you clarify exactly what you want, set new goals and then agree on ways to reach the goals while I am gently holding you accountable for your commitments.

The quote by Mahatma Gandhi summarise my philosophy about coaching: “As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world … as in being able to remake ourselves”. This means that, as we work together, YOU will be central in the programme.

My biggest gifts are my ability to listen and to ensure that I understand your point of view during conversations. I can restate your viewpoint to your satisfaction. This means that we work 100% from your life situation and not my views.

I have 20+ years’ experience in the corporate environment as an independent consultant, facilitator and coach. I therefor understand how the corporate world works. I then joined a smaller organisation before I started my own business.

I studied BA Communication at the then Rand Afrikaans University with Communication, Journalism, Psychology and Industrial Psychology as my major subjects. After my formal studies I have attended various training programmes to equip me to be an effective coach. I am currently furthering my studies in Coaching.

I am registered at the International Coach Federation as an Associate Certified Coach. I am a member of the International Coaching Federation and Coaching and Mentors Association of South Africa (COMENSA).

But more than these qualifications, my most important qualification is to walk side by side with you on your new journey to achieve your goals. I listen without judgement while I create a safe space in which you can grow your self-awareness and become aware of your blind spots. This I do with tremendous compassion.

Process

Your success is not guaranteed by a quick once-off intervention. I will typically meet with you for 8 sessions of an hour each over a period of about 4 to 6 months. I use a goal centred framework while I am building a meaningful relationship with you. I help you to see your current reality from a fresh perspective. The model provides structure to make you feel safe but it also provides enough room for you to use lots of creativity and innovation to meet your own goals. One of the biggest benefits of this process is that you increase your self-esteem and confidence.

We will meet in one of three ways:

  • I work from 12 Lawley Avenue, Waterval Estate (behind Northcliff corner, where we can preferably meet for our conversations.
  • I am willing travel within half an hour distance to meet you at your workplace.
  • If you prefer, we can also have our conversations by Skype or telephone, which will save you time and money.

I have coached various individuals and managers in debis Fleet Management, which is part of the Mercedes-Benz group, Citi Global Operations, Giesecke & Devrient, CSIR and Nedbank to name a few. You are welcome to contact me for specific references.

One of my client’s feedback is:
“Senomi is more than a coach; she is a teacher that has passion in growing and developing people. She has an exceptional knowledge of the various subjects she shares with people, and challenges people to look at various situations in a different and holistic manner. Senomi displays values, like integrity and respect, and has a wonderful way of dealing with not only with a group of people but also with individuals. She has the ability to subtly change her style to suit the style of the person she is dealing with and assists them in understanding the fundamentals. Senomi is a disciplined person, and this can be observed in the way she ensures that all her material is of the highest quality. She conducts herself in a professional manner and it has been a great pleasure to learn and develop with Senomi.
