Organisations in the private sector in which she has worked include Unilever, National Brands, Old Mutual, Parmalat South Africa and Woolworths and the GSB, WWF-SA and Tralac in the non-profit sector. As an executive coach she provides a safe reflective space in which her clients can explore the executive agenda. This ranges from being a sounding board for unravelling complex organisational issues, deepening existing leadership capacity and developing new competencies to raise his/her game. Pam’s work is grounded in sound adult development, leadership development and strategic business principles that she integrates to respond to the individual executive’s coaching goals in a process that combines support and challenge. A hallmark of her approach is making explicit the theory, purpose and meaning of practices, exercises and reading that the executive is invited to undertake. Her approach calls for a high level of client commitment to his/her personal value and growth.
