I am the Voice of Authentic Confidence. My life story is embedded in the value system of education – meaning the empowerment of the self, following your passion and living a purposeful life with compassion. Through my strong family background of academics, I aspire to impact positively by exhibiting moments of gratitude and appreciation of the micro moments in life consciously.
Being the founder of Zenzele People Professionals in 2002, I advocate for Positive and Mindful Leadership. The idea to “ReThink Your Thinking” and (Re)Framing your mindsets towards positivity resonates with Jazz as a brand, as well as Zenzele.
Zenzele started as a consulting agency and has advanced into something more, a Global Resourcing company that specializes in Talent; Leadership Coaching and Development.
I empower professionals to recognize their talents and unlock their capabilities by using a Strengths focus and Strengths Spotting Approach.
In my respective field of expertise, I have twenty years’ experience as a Human Capital Executive across all Human Resource specialties. I use science-based and Positive Psychology tools to influence human society, by increasing social and human connectedness.
I strongly believe in “Context Leadership”, to be mindful in creating space for others to flourish, and “Positive Resonance”, connecting with humans through positive emotional state of mind.
I believe that if our leaders were mindful – going back to the basic skills of treating people with humanity, leadership would be quite a different flair and taste that appeals to most follows right across that world.
I mentioned in one of my interviews on Leadership can be a complex issue but if the energy of the leader is channeled through positive energy of carrying the important responsibilities to enable followers to be mindful and positive as well; the world would be a much better place.
I am an alumni of IE Business School (Madrid, Spain), having graduated with her Masters’ in Positive Psychology, Leadership and Strategy in July 2019. With this qualification, I have been able to expand Zenzele into providing Executive Coaching to businesses.
In my capstone research of her Masters Thesis; I discovered that increasing mindfulness increases charisma and productivity; decreases burnout and accidents, increases creativity; memory; attention; positive effect; healthy, vitality and even longevity. When we are positive and mindful, we can take advantages of opportunities that are presented to us and be aware and alert of crisis management for both the leaders and employees.
As stated, having worked with people in the Human Development space throughout my career, I progressed in expanding my scope as a Mindfulness Coach with Neuroscience and Positive Psychology, to coach and to make people aware of their breathing momentarily, on how to reduce negative emotions and manage anxiety, how they can monitor their body language and posture using the CEO of BETA (our breathing, managing our emotions, gathering our thoughts clearly and precise in order to take appropriate actions in any situations we are faced with).
Everyday, I live by the famous words of “These are the beautiful days of our lives”.
