“Helga was head coach to MTN SA for a period of four (5) years and has coached 40 of our executives and general managers. During this time, I have witnessed many of my executives and general managers attain deep personal growth, leave much of their limitations behind and develop into dynamic leaders contributing with significance and confidence to the business objectives. Her biggest strength is her ability to get people to believe that they are capable of achieving anything and in so doing, they respond with resourcefulness and motivation to what is asked of them. Helga has had a calming, constructive influence on her coacheesRead More →

“On a personal development basis she helped individuals identify strengths and weaknesses, and guided their personal development. She raised the self-confidence and decision making ability of numerous members of the team. Her ability to engage, even with the most difficult member, and get them to open up to her is truly remarkable. The results of her interventions are an emotionally mature team that is focused on reaching the objectives set out in our mission and vision statements. Incidentally the drafting of the mission and vision statements were facilitated by Ms Landis.”Read More →

“I was very impressed with the manner in which Helga interacted with team members and subsequently won each of their trust which was essential to the success of the coaching initiative. Helga has an ability to set all at ease and to create a “safe” atmosphere within which to explore the team dynamic. On an individual level, immediate results were achieved with the majority of team members. What has become clear over time is that each member has been impacted in varying ways, from a change in perspective to major life-impacting changes. I am very pleased and encouraged by the impact on both the teamRead More →

“As a leader of a small and highly specialised team, it was important to tailor the coaching content to their needs. The coaching content found the right balance of the practical application of the qualities required for a high performance team and leveraging the unique roles within the team. For myself as the Leader, the greatest value coaching provided me was greater self-awareness and consciousness of my personal brand. The coach brought a wealth of personal business experience and “the humanity element”. If you are committed to truly getting the best out of your team, coaching is a very worthwhile investment by an organisation”.Read More →

“Through Team Effectiveness Coaching” we could grow as a team. We were able to better understand ourselves, each other, why we behave in certain ways and how that impacts one another. This allowed us to, in a frank way, discuss the challenges we face as team members and as a team and how we could better support each other and be more effective as a team. We engage and perform better as a team today due to the sessions we had. The facilitation and content was outstanding and as the leader of the team I could trust and participate in the process because the coachRead More →

“Our management team attended a day workshop with you. From that day forward, we were a changed team. A cohesive team, dependant on each other, embracing the core challenges our emergency environment creates. I want to reflect on the personal growth I’ve had in our individual sessions. The challenge from nursing to medicine and then finally a middle manager in the state sector to a senior member in the private sector seemed insurmountable. Our sessions challenged and changed deep pathological emotions which will never return. You’ve taught me to stay positive and have an open mind, to think before I speak, and reflect on theRead More →

“Coaching with Helga Landis has benefited me greatly by helping me to understand my strengths and weaknesses and working to address these constructively and proactively. She has helped me to understand myself and how I can be more effective and manage my team better. She has been a huge encouragement, helping me to identify what I do well, when I tend to be critical of myself and focus on areas requiring improvement. She has also been a sounding board and the ability to share ideas in a safe space has been very beneficial”.Read More →

Coach training for all the HR teams globally were done and 10 HR members were certified as specialist HR coaches.

I have found Helga and her team to be very professional in their approach to their deliverables, with their individual ethics and work ethic being beyond reproach. The Saraswati’s team’s work contributed greatly to the growth and performance of Minopex during and after their interactions”.Read More →
