The business of being human

Today, constant change, accelerating pace and unrelenting complexity mean increased demands on both business and the individual. We need to change our behaviour if we are to optimally perform in this new environment. Now, more than ever, we as humans need to differentiate ourselves from technology by understanding and executing on the essence of our humanness – that is our imagination, creativity, social and emotional intelligence, our wellbeing and our passion. These are the keys to agile performance, resilience and sustainable results. The business of being human is simply good business.

Coaching@GIBS, as part of the GIBS Personal and Applied Learning centre, is dedicated to using personalised capabilities for the sustained development of leaders. Coaching is a proven means to enhance self-awareness, leadership performance, adaptive capacity and impact both at an individual level and as an organisation.

Coaching@GIBS is embedded in the GIBS philosophy of learning.

This is a human experience

“I had the pleasure of attending MCEP – Management Coaching for Exceptional Performance – it is exceptional. The facilitator Tanya Stevens is “stunning” her passion for the programme is contagious. I was drawn into the entire process from the word go. The pace was just right and the practical application in the safe environment of the triad sessions gave me so much confidence to actually coach. My biggest learning from the programme is to genuinely be present and listen with all of my senses. Thank you for the opportunity to attend.”
- Marianne Van Niekerk (Staff)
“The coach created a atmosphere of trust and understanding. She had a very powerful approach and asked questions that encouraged deep thinking and reflection of what I am doing and how I can improve”.
