Coaching plays an important role in developing South Africa’s future prospects through its ability to empower and build leaders who can unleash their own potential and thereby effect positive transformation in all aspects of society. In the current South African climate leadership is a much debated term. What is a leader, what are the characteristics of a good leader and how do we foster leadership? Strong leadership is essential whether at corporate level, in government, at education institutions or in the NPO sector.
