Why Take This Short Course

Coaching is a meaningful way that managers and leaders can spark the best within individuals. And by enabling employees, the company as a whole can achieve its objectives. Coaching helps people to develop self-belief, self-motivation, choice, clarity, commitment, awareness, responsibility and a readiness to act. In short, it’s a process that unlocks potential and empowers others to reach the next level of performance for individual and group benefit.

SACAP considers coaching to be the art and science of getting the most out of who we are and what we do in the world. Coaching provides a dedicated “thinking space” where coachees can develop insight, set goals, choose actions and be accountable in achieving these goals.

Course Educator

Svea van der Hoorn

Svea is one of only a few ICF Master Certified Coaches (MCC) in South Africa. Svea is not only a faculty member at SACAP, teaching on various coaching programmes we offer, she is also an international faculty member of SolutionSurfers, Switzerland. She began her coaching career in response to the need to approach employee performance as a growth and development opportunity, rather than a traditional “carrot and stick” management style.

Svea is focused on evolving an activity-based, embodied approach to online coaching training – combining the creativity, interactivity, and dignity of humanity with the accessibility and convenience of technology. She also contributes to coaching in South Africa by serving on the board of the International Coach Federation (ICF) where she volunteers at local continuing coach education events and offers mentor coaching for credentialing, supervision, and accredited coach specific training.

“My vision is that leaders and managers create environments with their people so that everyone comes to work ready and willing to contribute, rather than to merely pass time.”
