The challenges Education in general, educators and teachers in particular, are facing, have skyrocketed over the last few years. Teachers need to balance their personal lives, relationships, families, and social responsibilities with an over-demanding work environment. Burnout and other stress-related symptoms have become part of the teaching profession.

During her career, Dr. Brenda Hattingh was commissioned by the Department of Education, then, under Minister Naledi Pandor. The aim of the process was to find the best way to personally assist educators/teachers in their ever-important tasks. Dr. Brenda spent two years involved in academic institutes including, universities, colleges, and schools, to find answers to the following questions:


· What are the demands our educators are currently faced with?

· How are our teachers coping with the mounting pressure?

· What can be done to assist our teachers in their work environment with ever-expanding demands?

· How do we help to secure and sustain our teacher’s wellbeing?

· What do teachers need to establish a culture of job satisfaction?

· What can be done to better the education profession?


The answer to these questions can be found in empowering teachers with coaching and especially self-coaching. This route not only provides the mindset, tools, and skills to lead a balanced, fulfilling personal life, but it also includes the necessary skills and tools to master the demands of current challenges in Education.


The result was that the Self-coaching for Power Teachers Workshops were developed to meet these demands. Educational institutes that participated in the project, found a significant change in their environment, the well-being of educators, and uplifting of the general atmosphere within the classroom.

Teachers started to thrive – and not merely survive.


This presentation is an introduction to self-coaching for teachers and how to harness the power of your authentic self.

The healing process also became a spiritual journey. More than 20 books have now been published.

She is committed to facilitating, fundamental change, transformation, and empowerment, not only in individuals, but also in national and international companies and organisations, and governments.
