Client Experiences

“Our session with Tim was a game-changer. It altered the dynamic of our relationships, plotted our course on a different trajectory as a team, and empowered us with the tools for how best to extract quality out of each other.
As a leader, my one-on-one sessions with Tim highlighted my own areas of development, in line with the needs of our team. They provided the structured approach I needed to help bed down a solid foundation, and created a healthy environment for individual growth and collective progression.”
Girschwin Lewack, Regional Manager, SPAR Build It Eastern Cape

“I have been fortunate to have had personal experience in having Tim coach and mentor the Euro Steel KZN Management TEAM. In his book Leading Self and Others Tim demonstrates that everything rises and falls on leadership and there are stark examples of this today in South Africa. Success in any organization is always underpinned by exceptional TEAMS working synergistically together. Leadership skills are learned behaviors and not dependent solely on genetic or inherent God given talents.

I want to thank Tim for his contribution to this critically important subject and look forward to what he has to offer us in the years ahead.”

Dave Wilson, – Director, Euro Steel.

“Tenneco invited Tim Shaw to our journey “Good To Great Through People” to facilitate a series with the management team. He assisted us in establishing our strengths and coached us to function as a team in spite of our differences. His methodology and models are of high quality and are contributing greatly in our success journey.

Tim is a very experienced coach and understands the role, purpose, and behavior of leadership extremely well. I could sense that his discipline portrayed on the sports field in the past was evident in his sessions. I can highly recommend him as a coach/facilitator for any organization.”

Adriaan Gouws, Plant Manager, Tenneco

“I work in an agency of national government and have had the good opportunity of Mr Tim Shaw working with my team. What started as a conflict resolution initiative developed into a team (and team-member) strengthening activity that also resulted in higher team engagement.

Tim provided not only a framework but also instruments that enabled our team to function harmoniously with mutual respect among team members. I benefited from personal coaching sessions which helped me focus and prioritise and thus save time.”

Tim worries about the benefit derived and not the filling of sessions, a rarity in the private sector.

Andile Yengeni, Branch Manager, Seda EC, Nelson Mandela Bay

“Effective leadership is an investment that reaps financial returns for an organisation. Tim Shaw’s Leading Self and Others is not just a manual which teaches the skills and behaviours of leadership to intellectuals, it is a bible for every individual to utilise in their personal or professional life.

Tim listens attentively, explicates coaching, leadership and entrepreneurship dextrously, and challenges leaders to consistently think bigger on business and personal development. Tim’s persistent yet non-judgemental style has assisted my team and I to make important breakthroughs and bridge our past and future career directions.

I am confident that Tim’s new release Teaming with ideas will further encourage leaders and team members to cultivate their strengths and maximize their performances.”

Gert J. Roselt, CEO, Probe Integrated Mining Technologies

“A happy yet calm energy, a ready smile, ability to listen and an innate interest in each individual he meets is what makes Tim a true gentleman, high impact coach and mentor, gifted trainer, team facilitator and motivational speaker. It is in each of these roles that I’ve had the privilege of engaging with Tim as he shared his unique thumbprint with me personally and guided me to find mine. So too when he shared with larger audiences and encouraged them to discover their uniqueness.”

Anita Palmer, Business Incubation Manager, Propella
