TESTIMONIALS

” I have worked with Mari across a number of organisations and projects, and I keep recommending her. Her deep knowledge of the Enneagram, coupled with a finely-tuned empathy for those she coaches results in truly significant shifts and discoveries. As a trainer and facilitator, Mari has the ability to extract meaningful contributions from even the most reticent of participants, and to package information that makes a real difference in today’s ever-changing business environment. If you want to drive personal discovery and growth, you couldn’t find a better guide for your journey. “

Elmarie Grant – Learning & Development Manager: Legal Services, Webber Wentzel

“ I have personally engaged with Mari over many years and in different circumstances with excellent results and will continue to do so
in the future. ”

Val Jansen – Finance Officer, Moshal Scholarship Programme

“ Mari has been of enormous value in allowing us to understand personal and behavioural profiles of individuals both from a recruitment and leadership development context. This has allowed us to see the strengths and development areas of the individuals and how they fit into a team context. She has also facilitated team dynamics and team effectiveness workshops for us that have been very beneficial in opening up lines of communication and breaking down barriers towards business success. ”

Tani Amarasinghe Moodley

“ Mari did leadership coaching at our company over a 2 year period. Initially, coaching was interactive group sessions followed by one-on- one coaching. There are often many coaches/leadership consultants who tend to be way too theoretical and don’t get to understand the business or clients’ needs at a granular level – this was not the case with Mari who was able to get a deep understanding of our company culture and what makes both the individuals and company tick. I benefited immensely from the conversations and skills which I am now equipped with to better my management skills and leadership qualities. ”

Anthony Prissman – Head of Business Development: New Markets, Osiris Trading

“ Mari worked, inter alia, on measuring and understanding individual senior managers’ personal profiles and personality make-ups, with the view to enhancing management effectiveness. Through her superior methodologies and unique insights, Mari was able to create greater awareness of strengths and weaknesses and the dynamic this plays in being effective. Thereafter, she was able to facilitate and coach managers to develop strategies to become more effective in their personal and professional lives. In so doing, we were able to enhance the management team’s effectiveness, as well as that of their subordinates. The result was improvement in team effectiveness, less isolated silo thinking and behaviour, and significant business improvement. I can highly recommend Mari for this and other kinds of development work with management. ”

Tony Pheiffer – Alchemy Outcomes

“ Wayne was engaged to work with our senior leadership to provide a framework for managing change in our business following a major global acquisition, and to help the team uncover and develop strategic plans for increasing the health of the business as we joined two cultures. His insight, professionalism and ability to make leadership practice tangible and practical was hugely valuable. Working with Wayne and his partner was engaging and made a huge impact on our leaders as well as on me personally. ”

Elaine Porter – Director: People, Culture & Engagement, WSP Africa

“ We live in a time of rapid change and disruption! Our business needed to embrace change successfully and sustainably through its people and that’s where Wayne came in. He is an astute intellectual and highly perceptive emotional person who brings insights, reality and the necessary capability for people to change positively. He enabled us to better understand each other and forge relationships in a newly functional and everlasting way. He helped us reinvigorate a very talented team and help everyone refocus and thrive. The practice that Wayne brought to our business enabled us to work on team leadership first and then personal evolution, all of which allowed us to navigate the business environment far better. I believe in the impact Wayne had to our business and would definitely partner with him again in the future. ”

Wayne Speechly – Group Principal Director, Dimension Data Digital Advisory

“ I have worked with Wayne a number of times, to review, challenge and set goals to grow and improve business operations in a variety of divisions of a financial institution. This involved obtaining a clear understanding of the current landscape, setting a vision and defining key goals and team structures to achieve a vision. It also included leadership development, mentoring and coaching. I (and my teams) thoroughly enjoyed Wayne’s style and methods. The programmes were very insightful, and benefits are
talked about even today! ”

Felina Fernandez – CFO: Global Markets, Standard Bank Group

“ Wayne is highly professional in his delivery. He has an amazing understanding of the human mind, what drives individuals and companies, and knows how to bring those elements together to get the best out of teams and out of the individuals making up those teams. He works with integrity, has huge empathy and patience. Wayne is an “old soul” and works with a wisdom that I have never come across before. His ability to create cohesion among very disparate and different personalities is what makes his method of engagement so unique. I would definitely recommend Wayne to any company or person wanting to make use of his services.”

Annelee Le Grange – CEO, Grange Consulting

“ Wayne provides a deep level of insight and expert guidance on many challenging topics during his workshops. I would heartily recommend him (and Synchronicity) to any business looking to attain a sustainable degree of change and learning. A world-class service! ”

Cal van Winkel – Senior Talent Analyst: Group HR, takealot.com

“ Wayne’s ability to understand team dynamics and his moderation skill is what makes his offering unique. I have worked with Wayne and multiple projects/sessions and always enjoyed that he is able to get great discussions going. ”

Niels Rudolph – Director, Global SCM
