Lockstep partners with leaders to deliver performance and stay relevant within a challenging business landscape.
A personalised crafted experience for Africa’s most ambitious CEOs.Read More
The most complex business challenges are reserved for CEOs. Lockstep understands that as a CEO you’re expected to perform at the highest level day-to-day, whilst simultaneously navigating the future path of your business. This is the real craft of being CEO; both the challenge and the exclusive privilege.
In offering the Lockstep CEO Advisory Service and the Lockstep Genius CEO Retreat, we are able to bring about a layer of performance, enjoyment and fulfilment that most CEOs don’t realise is available to them.
The Lockstep CEO Advisory Service is an always on, one-on-one personalised relationship that offers practical solutions to drive performance, inspire your organization and empower your people.
No two CEOs are the same, but rather have an innate set of leadership qualities that are uniquely their own. Built on this belief, Lockstep partners with you to gain a deep understanding of yourself and your leadership Genius, from putting the master plan together right through to implementation.
The Lockstep Genius CEO Retreat is a rare opportunity for CEOs to gain perspective, reenergise and rededicate to the task of being a great leader. During this three day process a select group of CEOs work together in a confidential environment to refine their CEO craft and prepare for their next leadership challenge.
Setting the standard in Executive Team cohesion and performance.Read More
High-performing businesses require a cohesive leadership team to spread influence throughout the organisation. Such teams require curation and refinement - they do not come about naturally or without intent. Lockstep leans on our full range of competencies - coaching, facilitation, profiling and team dynamics - to build Executive Teams who perform at peak levels.
This dynamic 10-month program involves just 8 days (overall) together in a highly curated offsite environment, in parallel with coaching, executive cadence, in-office observations, world-leading tools and proprietary Lockstep IP and processes. A rigorous measurement approach tracks the evolving performance of your executive team. Executive time is a precious commodity and there is seldom a break from urgent matters. This program ensures high-impact time allocated to reflection, difficult conversations, vision-setting and similar leadership considerations.
Inviting top performers to become future leaders.Read More
Formally invite your top-performers into leadership. Retention of your best talent is achieved when they can grow, stay engaged and add value in a way that is purposeful. By growing leaders in-house and in partnership with Lockstep, you enjoy gains in cultural alignment on top of the development for each individual, thus differentiating this program from outsourced, standard offerings.
Over 6-months, your best talent will discover their own leadership genius by learning to amplify their strengths and put them to work inside your organisation. The leadership project embedded in the program has each person no longer looking to their seniors to show them where to add value. The blended learning methodology integrates offsites (3 days in total), coaching, mentoring and online learning modules.
Inspiring leadership in your managers.Read More
A manager has a significant influence on the engagement levels of all your people: they drive task execution as well as create an engaging work environment. Furthermore, the best managers identify and nurture future leaders.
This 5-month Lockstep Program builds a leadership mindset in managers, while providing them with foundational management skills, tools and practical know-how to set direction and engage their teams. By learning how to hold both themselves and their teams accountable, managers set the foundational standard for leadership.
I believe that work should be an invigorating and fulfilling experience and in 2007 I founded Lockstep, a world-class leadership consultancy to achieve that end. Leaders have a singular ability to positively shape the lives of many and it is this leverage that attracted me to the leadership field.
My career has been dedicated to shaping business leaders across the African continent who are able to balance commercial performance with broad societal impact and who no longer see these outcomes as being mutually exclusive. We are living in times where the great companies of the world are forces for good and I have never been more excited about the era of business that we're entering into.
Lockstep partners with clients who are seen as trailblazers in their sectors, pushing the boundaries of what great companies can accomplish. My work across this client base centers around CEOs, either in a coaching capacity or through the Genius CEO Retreat. My particular excitement is seeing CEOs develop their own craft, a reflection of their own innate ‘genius’.
I spent my early years in South Africa before emigrating to the USA in 1988, where I was educated at Berkeley University and Harvard Business School. I have spent time in the consulting sector and within industry, primarily with General Electric in San Francisco and New York, before returning to South Africa in 2002.
Seeing people thrive and perform more optimally in all areas of life is something that excites me tremendously. As a Partner in the Lockstep business, I have the opportunity of working with teams and individuals in unlocking the innate potential that lies at the core of every human being. I am committed to driving business performance and bringing operational experience and an understanding of human behaviour to my role at Lockstep.
Having worked both locally and internationally, holding senior strategic roles within the retail market. I believe that high performing Executive Teams are the greatest leverage point for organisations and I departed my corporate career spanning nearly two decades to work closely with CEO's in developing thriving teams.
I am the Johannesburg-based Partner at Lockstep and leading Lockstep and serving our clients is the culmination of my professional curiosity, successes and deep purpose.
Businesses have a performance imperative like few other environments. Sooner or later, ambitious individuals and organisations realise sustained performance comes from doing the personal and interpersonal work of leadership - no greatness exists without it.
I serve as a trusted advisor to CEOs and they entrust me with their greatest asset - their executive team. I am a loyal ally and provide an external voice to enable an environment of courageous conversations. I have a deep understanding of the processes of self-development and individuation, and how these can be applied to powerful effect in organisations. I lead the Lockstep's innovative Aspiring Leaders Project.
I joined Lockstep in 2013 after a successful career as a strategy consultant in South Africa and the Middle East. I found my vocational path in 2010 and chose to establish the Human Resources department for local Energy success story, Energy Partners.
An appetite for a more purposeful career drew me first to the energy sector and eventually to executive leadership.
I have a deep commitment to a path of self-education and personal practice in the field and process of individuation. To this end, I have completed various accreditations in personality profiling tools and have been mentored by global entrepreneur educator, Roger Hamilton. I am also the Johannesburg City Leader for Entrepreneurs Institute, a global organization. I have also completed a Business Science with honours in Finance from the University of Cape Town.
I believe that work should be a place for people to showcase their true abilities and connect with others who share a similar purpose. As Chief Operations Officer, I lead our support team in creating a solid base to work within at Lockstep. My experience as a practitioner means I am able to weave together both my business knowledge and deep understanding of our work, ensuring our business is set up to best serve our team of associates and our clients.
I started my career with a degree in Organisational Psychology and an internationally recognised qualification as an Integral Coach. In my 5 years working in this field I’ve continuously built on my qualifications through an Integrative Enneagram qualification, completing the Theory U course offered online through MIT University and of course on-going reading.
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, scuba diving and travelling with my friends and family. Getting lost in nature is one of my favourite ways to find myself.
I am a senior associate at Lockstep, having joined the team in 2010. I consult and facilitate learning in the area of people performance and believe that there is a better way of being in the work space, one that is more engaging, more ethical and more effective.
I help clients build better workplaces by helping them achieve their strategy through positive cultures, strong leadership, effective management and engaged team members. I love working with people and helping the connection, growth and development of tangible skills. I lead the ‘measurement’ practice for our clients at Lockstep and believe that we can help people assess and measure their development and progress in order to be more focused and conscious of their growth journeys.
I am a Capetonian and before qualifying with Bachelor of Business Science degree from UCT, I spent some time working in London and travelling to all corners of the five continents. My formal career started in South Africa in the management consulting field with Accenture, and in 2007 my consulting focus shifted to people, team development and organisational change. Although traveling fairly regularly, home is in Cape Town where I value easy access to the mountain where I spend time either on a bike, trail running, or walking with my family.
Having an extensive background in communications, I bring a wealth of experience working in both large and small communications consultancies, as well as working on the client side as Head of Communications at a global not-for- profit organization.
Throughout my career I have always focused strongly on the development of the people in my team and it was through realising this passion and completing a yearlong internationally accredited Executive Leadership Coaching programme in London; that I transitioned from the world of communications, to working exclusively in People Development.
I am passionate and enthusiastic about communicating effectively with individuals and teams, and empowering them to communicate even more effectively themselves. As a strategic human resources consultant (with a specific focus on coaching and facilitation), my primary aim is to assist organisations in creating cultures that empower and energises their people; ultimately driving effective business performance from within. This aim is underpinned by the belief that behind every successful organisation, are talented people who understand their potential and perform to fulfil it.
I have a degree in Consumer Sciences from Stellenbosch University; a postgraduate diploma in Communications; and a Master in Business Administration (MBA) from UCT’s Graduate School of Business (completed at the London Business School in the United Kingdom).
My role is to help leaders and teams transition to new ways of working together - to escape the traps of busy-ness, politics or ego and attain high performance that can be sustained. People naturally want to do good work and to collaborate effectively. I bring frameworks and a facilitation style that enable them to do exactly that.
The early part of my work life was spent in corporate finance in London, before returning to Cape Town in 2006 and helping to set up the Democratic Alliance Leadership Academy, which I ran for the following four years. During that time, we ran programmes to develop leaders throughout the organization.
Since 2010 the majority of my time has been spent coaching and facilitating in businesses in South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa.
I was educated in Cape Town, and have degrees in Philosophy and Electrical Engineering. I also have a Professional Coaching Certificate from the Centre for Coaching at the UCT Graduate School of Business, which carries an International Coaching Federation (ICF) level accreditation.
I am a Senior Associate at Lockstep focused on co-facilitating leadership retreats, coaching senior clients and contributing to the personal development aspects of our programmes.
My first career steps were in academia, with the Wits Institute of Social and Economic Research, before joining the NPO sector with CIDA City Campus and Common Purpose. I then moved into senior corporate roles in Black Economic Empowerment and Corporate Social Responsibility with Investec and Hollard. I left the corporate world at age 29 to devote myself full-time to building a practice of intimate and cutting-edge personal development. I have thirteen years’ experience of being an intuitive coach, workshop leader, facilitator and speaker – with the intent on building bridges between doing and being; performance and presence.
My husband and I share a love of books, coffee, the West Wing and playing bridge and garden cricket with our sons.
I am a Senior Associate at Lockstep and bring expertise in personal leadership development.
I have significantly deepened our focus on crafting ethical and purpose-driven organisations that value and nurture all stakeholders. I am driven to unearth the innate goodness in people, and to inspire organisations to follow an ethical course with purpose.
My career started in the IT sector and then transitioned into the world of organisational and personal development consulting and facilitation, where my passion for envisioning and delivering engaging and sustainable learning journeys emerged.
Prior to joining Lockstep in 2016, I spent 11 years working with South African-based multi-nationals, focusing primarily on the alignment of individuals within organisations, enabling sales teams, developing the C-suite and growing the next level of leadership.
After completing my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in English, Psychology and Marketing Management at UCT, I spent eight years travelling extensively and working in the UK, Europe and the US.
I believe in touching the inner lives of leaders through courageous conversations. I joined Lockstep in 2017 to be part of a team of like-minded people who aspire to change the world through enabling integrated leaders at their finest.
My work is walking alongside leaders; shaping their journey through designing and delivering leadership programs. I focus on partnering with Executive Committees and their next level of leaders through the Aspiring Leaders Project.
I started my career in strategy consulting with McKinsey & Company, followed by working in organisational development and investment banking. I later returned to McKinsey & Company focusing on women’s leadership development.
I hold a BComm Honours degrees in Financial Accounting from the University of Stellenbosch. I am an ICF accredited coach (ACC level), Newfield graduate (ontological coaching) and accredited with Integrative Enneagram Solutions.
I believe that every person has the ability and right to shine. There is an undoubtable infectiousness to high quality leadership, who is able to add value to the world and emerge with a group of people achieving something meaningful and valuable. This concept of collective euphoria is something worth chasing.
With over a decade of experience in leadership development, I have partnered with numerous business and sporting organisations. My main focus is to help teams, organisations and individuals create their own meaningful stories by developing skilled leaders who create intentional practices and ultimately allow others around them to excel.
Having joined Lockstep in 2012, I have been drawn towards nurturing aspiring leaders to become culture champions within business. These are the people who are ready to move from being high potentials to high influencers. The Lockstep Aspiring Leaders Programme, is a highly strategic programme which has been cultivated on the premise that intentional internal development of the next tier of leadership has significant impact on the business bottom line and is absolutely essential in a changing world.
I hold a masters in Organisational Psychology, a Business Science degree from University of Cape Town and diploma in corporate coaching.
Having an intuitive sense of how to connect people has steered and cultivated my journey.
With a deep passion for marketing and corporate business, I spent over a decade working for a leading global executive search firm, where I sharpened my skill set and helped establish and develop the brand within the South African market.
I joined Lockstep in 2017, an innovated forward-thinking leadership development consultancy. I believe the right leaders, given the right tools, can make effective change in business and thus, make effective change within South Africa.
I completed my studies in Public Relations and Journalism from Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
