One gym session in a year will not make you fitter, similarly one session of self-help training or personal coaching will not be enough to create a culture of excellence in your life. Enter Dr Mariam Sha of Awakening Excellence and author of the book, An Engaged Workforce – 6 practical steps to creating a coaching culture. Along with her coaching services and course offerings, the book is a wonderful personal and business manual that primes you to create a workplace culture that delivers results at full throttle. The Champion South Africa movement that I drive talks of ‘Champion people; build champion people’ and ‘Champion people; build champion nations’. I will encourage all those that wish to buy into the vision of a great and greater SA to understand that it starts with team coaching at all levels of society. An Engaged Workforce means just that, and Awakening excellence offers just that!
