Meet Desiree.

I provide coaching that helps you go BEYOND in your leadership. 

Specialising in leadership

My Approach

As a Leadership Coach, my passion is it to see people being led well. I work with leaders and managers who want to become more effective in their leadership and management of people. Many leaders and managers have been promoted or started their businesses based on their technical skills. Yet, not many have had much leadership or people management training. I offer individual as well as team coaching and workshops that help leaders and managers develop the necessary skills. 

My customised coaching sessions and workshops guide my clients through current leadership challenges or prepare them for upcoming opportunities. I meet them where they are at and help them achieve their individual or corporate goals. The topics depend on the goals they want to achieve, for example, develop emotional intelligence, improve communication skills, time management, maximise their unique leadership style, conflict management, team dynamics, and more.

We brought Desiree in to help the team develop insights about their individual communication styles and to equip them with skills to improve team dynamics. She has been a fabulous resource – drawing on both strong academic and real-world business experience. Her easy, engaging personality meant that she quickly won the approval and confidence of the team at the very first session and we are rapidly starting to see the benefits of her involvement. I would have no hesitation recommending her to any business team that has the will to do things better.
