Business coaches take 67 minutes to inspire future leaders this Mandela Day

LeadSA are calling all non-governmental and non-profit organisations to sign up and join them on Mandela Day (18 July 2015).

Aspirant organisations and individuals are invited to participate in a business coaching session that will help them on their road to achieving their dreams, goals, and visions for a better South Africa.

Craig O’Flaherty, the Co-Director of the Centre for Coaching at the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business, tells us more about business coaching in general and the importance of this initiative.

This particular kind of coaching asks the question: How can I stand alongside you, look at your challenges and help you see them in a very different way. The coaching also helps you identify what the competencies or skills are that you need to develop to overcome the challenge or achieve an objective.

Coaching for change

O’Flaherty says that the objective of the initiative is to help the participants reflect on the changes they need to make to create a positive impact in their communities.

It doesn't have to be about solving problems; it could be something fantastic that you want to do, but you realise that you have limitations. What the coach helps you do is to help you realise that you have the capacity and the emotional strength to make the changes in your life and the life of others.

Craig O’Flaherty, Director of Coaching Matters

LeadSA have teamed up with the Centre for Coaching at the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business (GSB) for Mandela Day, as a part of their Mandela Day Leadership Development Project, and are looking for 104 qualified coaches to volunteer their skills.

Sign up to get the coaching or if you are a coach volunteer to help someone on their journey.
