Coaching Passion

Business-to-business (B2B) coaching and mentoring is my passion…My clients success is my ultimate goal. I use Processes and Systems to drive competencies. During the sessions, I incorporate our unique philosophy called B.E.A.K.S. (i.e. Behaviour, Experience, Ability/Aptitude, Knowledge, and Skills).

Because my clients bring their full being to our sessions, we draw on their competencies which drive them to realise their insight moments. I enjoy working in three areas; start-up innovators/entrepreneurs for youth owned businesses.

I am also competent and enjoy coaching with small and medium business owners for their strategy development and revenue growth; In my sessions, I use some Assessments tools like MBTI, Strengths Finder, Personalities, etc.

Leaders are what make or break organisations, hence my third focus is in the corporate environment on Leadership and Executive Coaching.
