How can I help you?

Leadership and business coaching have gained significant popularity over the past 25 years and is set to become the fastest growing industry.

It is now part of the standard development training for elite executives and talented up-and-comers at many global companies including global Business schools such as Harvard and Insead to help reach their goals. Over $335 million dollars is spent on online education every day and self-education is the new norm. 

A Hay Group study of Fortune 500 companies found that 21 to 40% utilize executive coaching as standard leadership development for elite executives and high performance talent. Additionally, a recent Manchester Inc. survey of 100 executives found that coaching provided an average return on investment of almost six times the cost of the coaching. 

Having an executive leadership or business coach is a critical success factor and its now in high demand.

Patience gave me an opportunity to share my thoughts and to really think deeply about the issues at hand. Most importantly, I got a chance to think about what strategies I could apply to tackle these challenges. My coach is a courageous and outspoken individual who understood what I was going through.

Because of these coaching sessions with Patience, I was able to take very bold steps and move my career forward. Coaching has taught me the importance of having a safe space to reflect on the various aspects of career and life. Through the reflection I was able to made decisions from a very informed place. I would recommend Patience to everyone who wants to take their careers forward.

Editorial Reviews

SPR Review Badge
A useful and stimulating guide to building a career under trying circumstances.”—Kirkus.
SPR Review Badge
“Succeeding in a profession largely taken up by men is greatly to Mpofu’s credit, which she chronicles with an engaging, yet matter-of-fact tone. Learning how to get entry to and navigate within the C-Suite is a challenge for women, and Mpofu offers hope and help in that endeavor, elevating this book into an effective work of business self-help, rather than just a career guide. Importantly, this book is not just the perspective of one woman, but offers a comprehensive overview of achieving success in the workplace. Offering this guide to assist other women reveals her strong writing gifts and her admirable generosity in helping women succeed in male-dominated professional environments.”—Self Publishing Review (SPR).
