Navigating Transitions

Individual COACHING

I believe that change always gives us an opportunity to grow ourselves, an opportunity to learn to use setbacks as breakthroughs, an opportunity to cut bridges that no longer serve us, an opportunity to see more of ourselves as courageous and an opportunity to extract meaning in what life is challenging us on.

The Navigating Transitions Coaching Programme is about
building an empowered relationship with your Gaps.

Letting go and closing the Gap

In my experience of dealing with change, some of our challenges in transforming includes :

The perception that we have to give up something. These include loss of :

  1. Aspirations
  2. Power
  3. Belonging
  4. Control

Managing the spaces in-between where I am & where I want to be. In the gap we can:

  1. Experience doubt
  2. Experience fear of the unknown
  3. Feel anxious
  4. Experience loss & pain

The Gap is where the shift happens

The gap to close is the playground for practising:

  • What you want & believing in yourself/ vision. 
  • Who you want to be & growing into that person.
  • Negotiating setbacks and celebrating small wins
  • How you want to be experienced by the world
  • Imagining and realising possibilities
  • Being present and respecting your progress

The space in between can be intimidating, yet...

In the spaces in between we can:

  • Turn confusion into clarity
  • Turn breakdowns into breakthroughs
  • Turn pain into power
  • Turn setbacks into opportunities for growth
  • Turn self-doubt into confidence

The Gap is the bridge to your Next

I have learnt that we are crossing bridges every day through the actions we take, therefore closing the gap opens a new portal  of self-realisation. The more I transition, the more I transform, the more I transform the more I reveal, the more I reveal, the more I expand, the more I expand the more I become curious about my Next. 

Transitions prepare us  for our next Gap and I hope when you reach your Next, you always find you and thank yourself for sticking around for your shifts!

    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.

    HR Professional, Banking

    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!
