Pro Bono Coaching

hi everyone

I am completing my coaching diploma and need to complete another 50 hours. If you know of anyone that could benefit from coaching and lives in the East Rand Area - I would love the opportunity.

What is coaching?

Coaching is about having someone be your thinking partner – to assist you from moving from where you are, to where you want to be – to create a new way of thinking – new perspectives – clearing blockages to your dreams and goals.

Coaching assists to… Continue

Is the vuvuzela a gross health hazard?

I'm completely grossed out by what I heard recently. Unlike a decent musical instrument, this vuvuzela has no spit trap, which gives credibility to the claim that blowing thousands of these in a stadium creates a mist that shows up in the spotlights. Add to this the globs from the waving and shaking that must take place, and think beyond gross, think health risk. The Department of Health will probably be giving XDR-TB patients day passes to see the games instead of doing a proper investigation… Continue

Another TA model used in organisations is Karpman’s Drama Triangle, (Karpman, 1971) which describes the three roles of the Persecutor, the Victim and the Rescuer.

An example of the roles played in a typical drama triangle at work is as follows:

You might have a manager who believes "My staff are useless, lazy, and untrustworthy.” He would be seen by his staff as the Persecutor. The subordinate might think, "I can never do anything right. The boss is cruel and demanding and… Continue

Subliminal Conditioning within Institutions

Laing said psychiatry is an institution which like families, are groups whose members are ‘pledged to resist and stifle insights and tendencies towards human growth that might threaten their own power and expose them to attack from without.’ Strange as it may seem, Laing said one should not expect psychiatry to support liberation which I take to mean individuation. According to him, institutions use mystification and manipulation to condition their members, and so effective… Continue

Disciplinary Enquiries: Consistent Application of the Rule

Having presided over countless disciplinary enquiries, I've pretty much seen and heard it all. The most common excuses that employees offer in these enquiries, is that they either didn't know about a rule (see a previous blog entry 'Disciplinary Enquiries: Awareness of Workplace Rules' on how to combat this) or that the rule hasn't been applied consistently across the board. The accused employee will complain that so-and-so also did xyz and nothing happened to them, or they were merely issued… Continue

Strokes, Games and the Drama Triangle

Transactional Analysis as it may be applied in Organisations.



Human beings are stroke junkies. By stroke, I mean the TA term for a form of recognition, be it a smile, or a frown, or recognition for a job well done, or punishment for poor performance.

What is the stroke economy of your organisation? How much recognition is given for a job well done? How much attention is given for a job poorly… Continue
