Meet Makheni the Online and Face2Face Future Readiness Coach



Hi, I'm Makheni. My mission is to accompany you on your journey from good to great! I started  online coaching 8 years ago and did not just jump onto the Zoom bandwagon because of the Corona virus. In fact because I respect you, I do not use Zoom. I help facilitators to develop real online courses. 


I offer future readiness coaching to corporate clients, small entrepreneurs, and individuals.


I am a Certified Neethling Brain Instruments® Master Practitioner and I use these instruments exclusively in coaching and training.


Apart from these instruments I use a method which I have developed over the years for leadership and personal effectiveness coaching. I call it the VAV-MODEL. VAV stands for Values, Authenticity and Value. Am I driven by Values? Am I Aunthentic? Do I offer Value? The philosophy that underpins my approach is the fact that BEing always precedes DOing.

Why Makheni?


This is what qualifies me to do the following:

Coaching - I have been busy with what drives human behaviour since I studied Behavioural Sciences (Psychology, Philosophy, Sociology and Anthropolgy) in the early 70s and started studying Positive Psychology in 1981 before the word Positive Psychology was coined. I have experience in helping individuals and teams to move from good to great through speaking, facilitation, coaching and writing. The Cognitive Diversity profiling instruments that I use are most suitable for the categories of coaching that I offer. As a Master Practitioner of NBI® and co-owner of the Dutch agency, I co-facilitate the practitioner training and support practitioners so I have an in-depth understanding of the instruments. 

Leadership coaching - I have experience in workplace leadership so my coaching is grounded in real life experience and not  on management hypes and theories/models from books.  

Career coaching - I offer future readiness career coaching. It will remain relevant even decades from now when most of the careers we know today will have disappeared and there will be new ones we cannot even imagine today. The days of 'The most suitable career for you is engineering are over.' 

Coaching for entrepreneurs and SMMES - I single-handedly started Real Solutions Training SA in 1999 and I have now expanded to Real Solutions Training Netherlands. I have failed at some business ventures before so I also know what does not work and what works in small business. I started studying offline marketing before Mark Zuckerberg was born and at some point I was a Marketing and Communication Senior Manager so I know the principles that underpin online marketing.

Not only because of the code of ethics, but because integrity and confidentiality are important to me, I do not publish comments from coaching clients. I only publish what clients say about Makheni the speaker, facilitator and storyteller. For those comments please click here
