Based in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, Getti works as an individual, relationship, team and executive coach.

With an avid interest in diversity in the workplace and the challenges this can present, Getti offers team coaching for groups of varying sizes. Informed by systems theory, team coaching is a highly effective tool with many positive outcomes, which result in improved focus and productivity. This includes:
The speed and complexity of contemporary life requires resilient, thoughtful people, who are able to demonstrate flexibility, agility and imagination and are able to adapt to and thrive in multiple, ever-changing contexts. Coaching can help to reveal hidden strengths, under-utilised talents and new possibilities for thought-through action.
Skills development of young people is another area in which Getti has extensive experience. From the work-readiness stage to the early years in the world of work, Getti is passionate about coaching young people who are undertaking articles, internships and learnerships to become successful in the workplace and their careers.
Most importantly, Getti builds confidential, supportive and non-judgemental coaching relationships. By skilfully asking questions that generate insight, a measurable improvement can be attained in job performance, interpersonal effectiveness and self-confidence.
