I was introduced to coaching about 7+ years ago, at the time I was an unmotivated and I felt stuck in the job I was doing. Through the coaching program I became more confident in my capabilities. This led to me claiming my space better in the organization, acknowledging my strengths and putting myself forward, helping both in my personal space as well as my career. I am currently a property manager, looking after half of the country and in a role that requires me to make/ propose decisions that have a major impact on the organization. I am more aware of my capabilities and utilizes my skill more effectively. Thanks to Nokubonga it is so far a great journey of self-discovery and self-awareness.

Working with Nokubonga has been wonderful. She is very knowledgeable and seems to know what she is talking about. She ask questions that I never thought of and made me change the way I think and how I view myself. I came to Nokubonga because I needed guidance in my career and was also not feeling good about myself when it came to my work. The mindfulness exercises that we did were quite helpful in how I view myself and my work. There is some positive change and people can notice.

I’ve worked with Bongi as a coach on two separate occasions in my life - one where I was feeling stuck and looking for assistance with a career change and the other when I was navigating drastic changes in my career during COVID lockdown! During both those occasions, Bongi’s coaching was so helpful! She gave me incredible tools to help me through the uncertainty and come out the other end  in tune with myself and clearer on my next steps! She’s helped me find my voice and confidence professionally and personally and I highly recommend her coaching services!
