Qualifications and Training:
I have a PhD in Microbiology from Notre Dame University, USA and a Corporate Coaching Certificate from the University of Cape Town. I am a success coach, I am also an accredited Enneagram Practitioner (Integrative Enneagram Solutions) and a member of Coaches and Mentors of South Africa (COMENSA).
My coaching model uses the Enneagram framework as a transformation tool for helping clients to find their unique path to success, wealth and happiness. I have developed a success coaching toolkit which starts with the Enneagram assessment to helps clients to improve their self-awareness, identify their unique talents, strengths, weaknesses, blind spots, fears, defences and limiting beliefs. The second component of the toolkit focuses on 12 Success Principles and the third component provides clients with techniques for re-programming the sub-conscious mind for personal and professional success. My aim is to support my clients to take control of their destiny and create a life of success, wealth and happiness. My coaching framework focuses on three leadership pillars, namely, self-awareness, self-mastery and interpersonal skills.
I offer a 6-month success coaching programme for my clients (individual face-to-face sessions). I also host regular one-day workshops on the overview of the success coaching toolkit to cater for clients who cannot afford the 6-month success coaching programme. I also facilitate group coaching sessions for professional women with similar personal development challenges, leadership skills, low self-confidence and fear of taking career risks.
I coach professional women who want to be proactive in creating opportunities for their career advancement. I also coach professional women who require guidance in finding their life purpose and aligning it with their careers.
My personal experience of navigating my career advancement to top management as a black woman in a male dominated workplace has taught me a lot of lessons on approaches that work. I am motivated to coach women because I believe that I have a better insight of factors that can support professional black women to position themselves for advancement to top leadership positions within a shorter period and also to help women who want to establish their own sustainable businesses.
I am keen to coach women who have relevant qualifications and experience to advance to senior management positions but are being overlooked for promotion to these positions and women who want to make major career changes but are too scared to make the move because they lack knowledge on their strengths and natural talents. During my years as an employee, I have made major career changes and this experience has taught me the importance of taking more career risks even if you are not yet feeling 100% ready as long as you are passionate about the job on offer. I believe that women are capable of being great leaders as long as they believe in themselves and they refuse to allow self-doubt, fear of failure and gender stereotypes to stop their advancement to top leadership positions.
My work experience spans more than 36 years as a teacher, senior academic, research director, managing director of my own Water & Sanitation Consulting and Coaching Company which I established in 2003 and I also serve as a non-executive Board Director for four State Owned Entities. I have extensive experience in strategic leadership positions in national and international water sector organisations such as the Water Research Commission, National Water Advisory Council, Global Water Partnership, World Humanity Action Trust and the World Bank. I have recently completed a sanitation consultancy for Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. My interest in empowering professional women inspired me to write a book entitled: “Embracing gender diverse leadership for innovation in the 21st century”.
If you are a professional woman who has been overlooked for promotion too many times and you are wondering if you are doomed to stay in your current position until you reach retirement age, please let me help you to identify and change your sub-conscious career limiting beliefs by using the Enneagram assessment tool to identify your unique path to success.
If you are a professional woman who wants to learn how to re-programme your sub-conscious mind to achieve personal and professional success, let me show you how to use a simple formula for creating the life that you want
