world-class leaders.


Globally, coaching and mentoring  are considered to be the most effective solutions for ensuring sustained high performance from an organisation’s most critical talent. For more than twenty years, some of the best performing organisations in the region have entrusted SMG to provide these services.


Executive coaching enables participants to target and attain advanced levels of personal and professional performance aligned with the strategic priorities of the organisation. It is outcome focused with defined goals both operationally and strategically. Executive coaching provides insight and develops the vital skills and mindset for overall leadership effectiveness in the current business context.


Executive mentoring provides the C-suite executive with a confidential environment to explore their role impact with a trusted advisor. Executives are matched with a highly trained SMG Mentor with commensurate corporate experience. By providing new perspective and insight, SMG Mentors enable the executive leader to meet and exceed their professional context-specific objectives.

Team Coaching

Team coaching is used with intact teams to help them function more cohesively, more collaboratively and more efficiently as a team on shared challenges and opportunities. The goal of team coaching is to develop the team collectively so that it is greater than the sum of its parts – increasing the value that it provides to its stakeholders.   

Group Coaching

Group coaching is used with peers who do not necessarily share a common goal or challenge. The goal of group coaching is the development of the individuals within the group so that they can better engage their stakeholders. In this process, one person is being coached at a time, while the other participants learn from observing and interacting with the conversation.  

Coaching Pods

The deliberate, structured and process-oriented approach enables the group to focus on the needs of an individual colleague, supporting them to explore their chosen coaching goal, and to find their own solutions.

This supportive and curiosity-based environment supports participants to break through their limiting beliefs, unproductive behaviours or frustrated aspirations, often achieving profound outcomes.
