What we offer

Small Group or One-to-One Development

Allow participants a unique space for growth. The process is tailored to their own development needs, pace and circumstances. The approach includes a combination of coaching and mentoring, observing behaviour and training specific content that will challenge their thinking and actions. The focus is initially based on the 20/80 principle, where we will look at the small things that will have a huge impact.

Who we are

Gert holds a B.Com (Hons) degree and a COMENSA / ICF aligned coaching qualification. He has 17+ years experience in corporate and learning environments. He has lived, traveled and worked internationally and have a strong passion for seeing men discovering and fulfilling their God given purposes.

He has been part of a small team of men facilitating Men’s Retreats in the Western Cape for the last 10 years. The focus is on the masculine heart and living authentically, from a place of real strength and purpose.

The creative people I admire seem to share many characteristics: A fierce restlessness. Healthy cynicism. A real world perspective. An ability to simplify. Restraint. Patience. A genuine balance of confidence and insecurity. And most importantly, humanity. – David Droga

Bringing Soul into Learning

At the heart of learning, is our motivation to want to learn. Learning happens when we pay attention to the world around us. At an individual level, we need to be present enough to learn quickly and apply immediately.

Zesty Soul was born out of a need for flexibility in learning. We need to learn what is relevant in the time we have available, and apply our thinking, attention and motivation to make the shifts needed quickly. We redefine the classroom; coffee shops, meeting rooms, a walk down the Cape Town Promenade, a climb onto Lions Head, or the window-less room down the corridor!

Our mission is “not to waste time”. We respect busy lives and limited capacity. We appreciate that the answer is normally obvious and that multiple methods may have already been tried. We know that knowledge is power, and that habits are difficult to break. At Zesty-Soul, we use this knowledge to shape our sessions. Our journey start with what you have already tried and learned with regards to the topic, and we build capacity from thát point.

At an organizational level, leaders have to grow in this amazingly fast-paced world. And they have to get their employees on board too.

The question is: How do we link what we know our organization need, with the individual at the core of making those new plans work.

How do we get them to adopt new ways as soon as possible, and what is the environment needed for them to contribute their thoughts and ideas proactively?

This is where we partner with you.
