Lefuma Mokhethi  - Executive Coach, Management Consultant and Speaker

Lefuma has been exploring, studying and worked in the area of human development for more than 20 years, with the past 12yrs invested in experimenting and researching this area extensively.

She travelled widely in Africa and other parts of the world, with the purpose of deepening understanding of human dynamics in various cultures, as well as experimenting with different methodologies that accelerate human development.

She has acquired extensive knowledge in different human development models employed by various cultures and also underwent major personal transformation through participating in some of these top behavioural change programmes.

Her extensive academic background and years of experience in the Human Resources Industry has equipped her intricate knowledge and insight into human behaviour and development opportunities.

From her wide range of experimentation she has gained awareness that we are all capable of greatness. That greatness is a state that each one of us can access, that with quality strategies and constant application, we definitely can develop into our greatness and sustain it. 


Lefuma believes that coaching is one effective tool to accelerate growth into our greatness because it moves from an extremely affirming premise that respects and acknowledges our inherent capability as human biengs.

She has used coaching with individuals and companies from various sectors and results consistently confirm its power to engineer and escalate people into greatness.



In her work as a coach, Lefuma has the ability to create a context where clients are enabled to be at ease; focus on their goals; easily engage with highly complex phenomena; bring light to their shadows; breakthrough limits; take inspired action; deliver results and celebrate themselves.
