Lauron is an experienced executive coach with international experience who helps successful leaders, senior managers and their teams become even more effective. He has practised as a fulltime Executive Coach since 2001, mainly in South Africa but also in New Zealand and in the UK and has accumulated more than 3500 hours of coaching.
During that time, he has successfully developed effective leaders in various market sectors, including the Accounting, Banking, Insurance, Forensics, Retail, Healthcare, Mining and Automotive industries. More than half of his more than 70 corporate clients have over the years provided him with repeat mandates after initial successes.
He believes that much of this success is founded on his ability to build safe, trusting relationships relatively quickly, and to raise the self- and social awareness of his clients, thereby enabling them to better understand the impact their words and actions have on their people. Integral Methodology enables his clients, at a deep embodied level, to relatively easily replace their less effective habits with new, more effective, sustainable ones. His aim is to help his clients leave lasting legacies to the generations that follow them – so that the people led by his clients will perpetuate this effectiveness in their own environments simply because of the level of significance that they are experiencing.
Lauron has more than 20 years’ experience in Leadership, Executive and Strategic roles in law, commerce, education and sport. He practised as an attorney for some thirteen years, mainly at Garlicke & Bousfield Inc, where he became their first Managing Partner in 1994. He holds an LLM degree. He also headed up a Private Bank in KZN and served on several boards, some of which he has chaired.
Lauron holds a Diploma in Professional Coaching (Coaching Centre, Cape Town) and the internationally recognised Workplace Coach Training programme (Results Coaching). In June 2014, he was certified as an Integral Master Coach with Integral Coaching Canada, regarded by Ken Wilber as “the most complete and the most comprehensive coaching program available.”
He is the author of three books, Management by Coaching – 7 Basic Keys (2007), High-Performance Coaching for Managers (2010) and Shooting the Lights Out: A Guide to Consistent Effective Management. He is also the author of some 200 articles that have been published in the daily press and professional online magazines.
Over the years, he has spoken at several Coaching and Mentoring Conferences in South Africa as well as at functions for several of his clients. His speeches always come from a different, thought-provoking perspective and are humorous, stretching and fun.
He is also a credentialed Professional Certified Coach affiliated to the International Coach Federation (ICF). In addition, he is a founder member of Comensa (Coaching and Mentoring South Africa), having also been responsible for creating the KZN Chapter. He abides by their respective codes of ethics and conduct and by the Code of Conduct of Integral Coaching Canada.
