Bronze Baobab is an independent coaching and mentoring business, focused on providing comprehensive social, emotional and spiritual solutions developed in collaboration with our clients. We consider ourselves as a proudly South African company.
The exciting Bronze Baobab story started in 2005 when we wrote our first book: “Reviewing Really Rocks”. We prefer to share this story with you face to face which is why you are unlikely to see us splashed across billboards or advertising prolifically across every medium.
In the more than 30 years mutual experience in development and coaching of people as individuals or in groups or systems, we get excited when we see the dynamics when people are empowered to discover their own potential. Sometimes this happened in the most unexpected moments like a ballgame that suddenly transforms in a growing experience, or a team building event that ends in a life-changing experience. We place high value in molding programs to the needs of the participants, while we try to relate to their world.
In time we realized that in the post-modern world someone standing in a boardroom in front of a group of people for hours on end trying to facilitate change, is a thing of the past. The post-modern board room is a place where people are exposed to various experiences that are accompanied by lots of laughter, fun, music, playing and people interacting while they change, plan or build new dreams. We use activities such as games and experiences as tools to review a much deeper question to be solved. We discovered that when you wholeheartedly believe in the capabilities of others, with this tools you can help them to move beyond their perceived potential. Therefore we plan with our clients, to ensure our programs meet their requirements.
