about us

PCI was inspired by the need to create awareness about the value, benefits and power of coaching and leadership development in Southern Africa and the imperative for organisations to embed this in their culture to develop and support leaders who have a strong disposition to generate sustainable solutions for their life, career, leadership, workplace and societal challenges.

We support leaders who aspire to become coaches and utilise coaching as their leadership style and support them in their journey to become great leaders to build powerful and lasting legacies in their spaces and ultimately effect positive societal changes.
