Sivan Padayachy

Leadership and Team coach and facilitator

I create a trusting, safe and inspirational space where my clients can do their best thinking and unleash their potential and explore possibilities. I hold up a mirror to my clients to take a critical look at what belief systems, assumptions and worldviews they have that might be holding them back from achieving their goals. As a thinking and accountability partner, I assist my clients create and implement practices and behaviors that move them towards achieving their goals.

Working with personal-mastery and knowing that all change starts with an understanding of self, Sivan uses the Enneagram as a tool for insight and
awareness. She finds herself drawn to next level leadership – leaders navigating the challenges in transitioning from one level of leadership to the next. She enjoys working with leaders who grapple with the challenges of Diversity and Inclusion. Her systemic approach and the use of ORSC
(Organisation Relationship Systems Coaching) tools allows her to work with leaders and teams to equip them to have the real and difficult
conversations, deal with conflict as a healthy catalyst for change, break down silos and reduce toxic communication. This results in building trust,
creating a shared leadership culture and building great teams.


“Sivan has this unbelievable capability to ensure that the focus remains on the end goal whenever I am in a session with her. I might digress but she
has the knack to always bring the conversation back to the goal that we are looking to achieve. She is easy to confide in and the conversations flow
effortlessly. It still blows me away when the realization hits me that I have just unlocked something in myself with her help.” Gauteng Senior Sales
Manager – Packaging company

“Sivan asked good, thoughtful, relevant questions provoking the necessary thinking, inspiring creative ideas and changed behavior. I felt I was
heard. I was assisted in exploring goals I could effectively plan accordingly and was held accountable at all times for the actions required to support
these goals. I was made aware of the maximum potential accessible to me” Senior Finance Manager – Production Industry
