Sue Welman

Coaching Philosophy and Approach

Sue is a practicing executive coach, believing that focusing on the whole person enables sustainable change which directly benefits the organisation. She believes that it is by our interactions with people that we are defined and develop as human beings. By its very nature, this connection with others is complex and awareness of ourselves often enables a greater understanding of the other person.

Her decision to join Nabantu allows Sue the unique opportunity to combine her drive to build successful business with her passion to help develop successful people.

Previous Background

Prior to joining Nabantu she held the position of Associate Director in Data Management (Governance, Risk & Compliance) at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). She worked across industry groups, delivering consulting services to the financial industry, telecommunications, metals and mining, healthcare, education, government entities and consumer services.

Sue’s strengths are building businesses, developing leaders, growing teams, working with teams under stress, communication and conflict resolution. She has a rare ability to combine an innately analytical mind with seemingly effortless people skills. She is as driven by company results as she is by inspiring people to achieve them. In short, she is a natural leader who thrives on connecting with people and inspiring them to achieve.

She holds the need for empowered transformation within organisations close to heart and the necessity to put in place foundational and developmental programmes in place to support this. Her understanding of the strategic drive required within an organisation, coupled with her focus on the people aspect enables her to creatively hold the tension that often develops. This interest led her to become accredited as an Insights and Enneagram practitioner.

Coaching Work and Experience

Sue’s areas of expertise include coaching human performance and development, process coaching and team coaching. She has worked with executive levels where communication breakdowns have occurred or where a new vision for the company is required. She has coaching clients locally and internationally.
