Roger practices as a leadership coach and as an organisational development consultant. His work focuses on developing the adaptive capacity of leaders and organisations, enabling resilience and sustainable success.
Roger has considerable experience in coaching and organisational change in both corporate and governmental organisations across Sub-Saharan Africa and in Europe. He has helped organisations successfully address a wide range of strategic and operational challenges through the design and implementation of large-scale change initiatives.
Roger’s coaching is focused on building leadership ingenuity in complex contexts. Drawing from personal construct and complexity theory, his coaching offers a structured approach to enable clients to reconstruct and enhance the perspective from which they view themselves and the situation being worked with. This approach is ideal for leaders operating in contexts characterised by uncertainty and complexity, and for leaders in transition.
Roger has coached leaders in a wide range of contexts, in corporate, SMME, governmental and not-for-profit sectors in South Africa, USA, UK, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Hungary, Angola and the DRC. He is involved in coach development in academic and internal coach development programmes in South Africa, Botswana, Ghana, Namibia, Nigeria, Kenya, Mauritius and Zambia.
Roger holds a M.A. in Professional Development (Coaching) – passed with distinction – through Middlesex University (UK), and a B.A. (Honours) in Psychology. Roger has published and presented research papers internationally and locally on peer coaching, workplace wellness and strategic people management practice in economic recessions.
Roger is a visiting lecturer at the University of Stellenbosch Business School on the M.Phil in Management Coaching, and is a Ph.D student at the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business researching sustainability leadership. He developed original curriculum for the Diploma in Coaching for the South African College of Applied Psychology, and was previously the Chairperson of the Western Cape Chapter of Coaches and Mentors of South Africa (COMENSA).
