Emile Neethling will shadow the Executive as part of the process as they go about their day-to-day interaction with key stakeholders. Emile will interview the key stakeholder to gain more insights on how to grow the potential of the Executive.

What Clients Say
"Emile has a unique, empathetic and insightful demeanour. His timely and methodical coaching procedures have provided us with the opportunity to gain valuable insights into how we as a business serve our clients."
Brett Nussey, Managing Director, Clarity Consulting
AGT Coaching enables you to train and develop your employees in a way that makes good business sense and aligns with the company's strategic objectives. An organisation must understand what skills and knowledge it already has.
We do a complete skills assessment through interviews and surveys. This information is valuable to optimise the current skills set within the organisation and will assist with determining the skills gaps aligned to company strategy and expected future trends.
Together with the company's HR department, our skills development coach uses the information from the assessment process to build your unique skills development plan.
The skills development plan is then coordinated and facilitated, with measurable outcomes.

HIGH IMPACT LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT FOR SCHOOLS
“Emile's passion and insights for leadership is unmatched. The workshop was well presented and added so much value. We learned that truly great leaders are examples for others to follow and that we should choose our thoughts, words and actions wisely. Emile connected with us on a deeper level and created a safe space for our young leaders to be vulnerable. It added value to our lives and our leaders are now inspired to have a positive influence in the world."
MRS ELZANNE BONTHUYS
“I liked the calm, relaxed and professional manner in which the workshop was presented. I enjoyed the fact that everyone was able to engage in conversation. The workshop enabled all educators to realise their potential, to embrace the values and develop them on a daily basis. It served as a reminder that we have a responsibility to embrace the values that our school stands for and strive towards significance in the workplace”
“The facilitation style of Emile Neethling was learner-centred and organic, which meant that learners were arriving at the key principles and practices of leadership through their group discussions and plenary sessions. The results exceeded our expectations by far and proved that the workshop had been highly successful”

WHY MENTORING & COACHING MATTERS
The principalship is more demanding than
ever: Principals are creating the culture,
systems and instructional conditions necessary
for all children to achieve high levels.
Principals strive to improve teaching and
to learn in schools while faced with increasing
challenges. One-on-One coaching is an
effective tool to support the
growth of the principal and increase
effectiveness and longevity in the profession.
Principals find the long-term relationship with a mentor supportive and helpful in the role. Mentoring includes onsite
and virtual visits each month and are tailored to the principal's needs.
