POWER IN THE PADDOCK TESTIMONIALS

  1. 1
    Often in life and in business, decisions and directions are taken because of events that happen which fundamentally change and inspire our thoughts. In the case of Yolanda Sing, she came to a crossroads in her life and career stimulated by a major health challenge. Her book is a very personal story which makes for really inspirational reading, and tells of her making the move from the corporate world to not only finding herself and a way of helping her healing process, but also creating a truly innovative and life-changing business helping others. This is an amazing read for anyone experiencing self doubt on their own personal or entrepreneurial journeys, or needing a big dose of inspiration. – Melanie Hawken, founder and editor-in-chief of Lionesses of Africa

    Living in the same area as close family of Yolanda, I was aware of her illness and recovery, but this book is truly moving. A gripping account of her battle with cancer and the positive power of thinking. A wonderful lesson to everyone in finding your true calling and trying to live how you are meant to, not how you want to. An easy reading book – once I started I could not put it down until the last page. – Alison

    I have had this book ready to read on my kindle for a couple of months. I wanted a quiet time to read and appreciate it’s content without interruption by word or deed. That time was today and I can honestly say the book has inspired me to cast away unimportant matters and fill each day with positive thoughts and grateful appreciation . I feel lighter more positive and energised to make small but significant changes to my life like Yolanda. Her courage inspiration and strength make you believe all things are possible and you can overcome diversity. For anyone reading this who is facing difficult challenges Yolanda will get you through with a smile and a prayer. Well worth reading.- Kathy Katkin

    This is a story bravely told. On one level, it’s the story of a serious brush with cancer but it is much more than that. It tells of what happens when our soul dies and how it can threaten our well-being and our lives. By illuminating our soul again and finding our passion, we get a new lease in life.A great read and I want to read more from this author.

AUTHENTIC LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP TESTIMONIALS

  1. 1
    “I have experienced Yolanda’s work as an individual participant and through work she facilitated with my team. The Equine learning experience was facilitated in an amazing way to open up self awareness, the horse being the ‘mirror’ of ones own behaviours… Yolanda’s gentle ability to facilitate interaction in a calm, positive and consistent manner, provides a ‘safe space’ that fosters learning and enables self-reflection. Yolanda’s high integrity and affirming manner is outstanding and I would highly recommend her work to any business needing meaningful leadership development and wanting to achieve a positive result.” – Shirley Hulley
  2. 2
    “Yolanda is passionate about people development. She has a unique programme that allows an individual and a group to unravel quite tricky issues via an independent medium (the horses). The horse becomes a metaphor through which one can view own insecurities, fears, behavioural and inter-personal/inter-departmental relationships. It becomes easier to openly talk about these issues, as the individual becomes the “observer” in the “story” and the horse the active actor! The experience certainly takes one out of your comfort zone (especially if you have never worked with horses before!), but it is done in a caring and supportive manner. It is different, it is fun, it is scary and it is unique.”

    “Me and my family did Yolanda’s coaching programme with horses, together with other couples and families. It has not just enhanced communication in my family but also gave us appreciation for the various strengths we have and contributions we make to being a family. Our business school makes use of Yolanda and her coaching-approach to work with groups and teams of clients and their feedback is consistently positive and appreciative! It is not just what she does but her very humble and caring nature that makes her approach so special.” –

    I have always believed that human being had much to learn from animals. This workshop has been a perfect example of that. Through working with these gentle giants, Yolanda has facilitated a personal journey of self-reflection and empowerment. Both the equine energy and Yolanda’s powerful energy and thought provoking insights combine and result in a powerful experience. Small team or a family, you will take home something that will enable you to become an even better leader.Samantha Collins

    Yolanda is able to display and draw on the skills and gifts of coaching she owns and breaths in every intervention. Her ability to bring a diverse group together and builds a non-threatening space for each participant to fully benefit and at a more comfortable pace is very valuable.

    My experience with the whole program was a life journey. It started with the horses, at that time; I was not in a good space and really felt that it wouldn’t have any benefits to me. I was so surprised at how the horse was in tune with my feelings and I went away, feeling renewed and excited about the new journey, I was embarking on. It is a stunning exciting experience which is a continues journeyRenee Foster

    The self-awareness with the horse was amazing. To experience the sense of emotions with the animal. If you follow your vision the rest of the team will follow, as illustrated when you lifted your gaze the horse could feel; that you were in control. I was under control, until external factors disturbed the horse and it took me out of my comfort zone. I tend to want to control the horse by tightening my grip but aggravated him more. Rocky took the horse and allow him his space and he became calm. The moral of this experience, that as a leader, you need to give people space to see things from a different point of view.Sedick van der Schyff

    This is what Michelle Pietersen, a community practitioner at the Stellenbosch University has to say, “The workshop challenged me to live and lead via my core values. I apply it in my work daily with lasting effects. I want to learn more from this amazing woman and her horses – this medium of teaching is so creative and authentic.
    I want to encourage you to take a brave step, learn about yourself in an unconventional way, challenge your abilities and inabilities, rediscover yourself and become an enabler in your work, personal life and in the community. What a fresh approach to learning!”

    At Virgin Active we strive to deliver training that is experiential and has a meaningful practical component to it. This Leadership Development Programme brings together the leadership theory and the practical in a very unique way. Each participant has a unique learning experience and can make a far deeper connection with their own leadership style and energy,” said Patrick Day, leadership development manager at Virgin Active Health Clubs, South Africa.”Staff who have completed the workshops gain a much deeper understanding of who they are on an emotional level. There is a lot of intense reflection taking place. This is often where they gain profound insights. It is these self-insights that lead to behaviour changes visible to others. The impact in the workplace is that of a calm, yet assertive leader who values people, yet still achieves the desired results,” Patrick Day

    “The workshop was definitely beneficial to our management team, but any team or group of individuals who are interdependent, can benefit from it. Our aim was to create cohesiveness among our team members, to have better understanding of each other and to manage team dynamics. Our Pretoria branch is also considering making use of Yolanda’s services due to the great reviews from the Cape Town branch,” said Geofrey Bougard, human resources manager, Cape Town.“We can most definitely see the difference in the workplace. Team members work much better with each other and the level of understanding has improved.”
