Makheni has been helping organisations and teams to become more inclusive by maximising the benefits of diversity and minimising the impact of the pitfalls of diversity since she started Real Solutions Training in 1999. She has a novel and comprehensive approach to inclusion which does not just focus on observable differences but on the real drivers of behaviour and what enhances team synergy. She is a brain profiling specialist and she includes this in her inclusion, team and management interventions.

The practical tools that she offers to managers and team leaders are based on her real life experience at both operational and senior management and not on theories, models and management hypes. Makheni says, "Organisational effectiveness depends on effective team leadership because that's where the rubber hits the tar!'
