Executive and individual coaching in Senegal
Organisational leaders who trust and invest in Beautiful Soul's individual Executive Coaching programmes share a common desire to offer professional and personal development opportunities to themselves and their employees in order to optimise the transformation of their organisations.
All of our services are available in-person and online.
All of our coaches are certified (or accredited) and supervised. Together they have thousands of hours of practice.
Individual coaching involves a process of accompanying a client (the 'coachee') to enable him/her to achieve results that are important for his/her success and that of his/her company or organisation.
Through a process of active listening and powerful questioning the coach acts as a mirror to enable the coachee to reflect on him/herself, to develop new perspectives on his/her behaviour and to take action in order to release his/her potential.
A critical starting point is the willingness of a coachee to engage in a process of change. A coachee may be an executive, a company director, a young manager or an individual contributor: Anyone with high potential. Beautiful Soul Coaches have the skills and experience to work with individuals who have different types of profiles and their related challenges.
Initially, an exploratory conversation is held between the coach and the coachee to discuss the objectives of a coaching session. This may be held in the presence of the coachee's supervisor (or HR representative) to align the coachee's development objectives and expected results.
Individual coaching usually focuses on the management style, behaviour or habits of the coachee in a professional environment. The benefits of a coaching programme vary from one coachee to another, depending on their context, their personality and their personal and/or professional development objectives.
The majority of our coaches are based in Dakar, Senegal. They are all trained and are certified (or accredited) and supervised. They have lived in a range of countries/continents, studied at prestigious universities and worked in complex multinational organisations holding management positions. Together they have thousands of hours of practice.
We offer individual coaching programmes online or face-to-face in many countries across Africa and the world (France, Canada, UK, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Kenya...).
We are also strongly committed to developing and professionalising the coaching profession in Senegal through the Certification of Coaches and the creation of the Senegalese Coaching Association (Association de Coaching du Sénégal).

On average, sessions last one hour.
They are generally held once every 2 weeks, in order to allow time for the coachee to implement any actions defined by them.
Sessions take place in-person or online, preferably in a location outside the coachee's work environment.
We have a relaxing space at our premises located in Mermoz (Dakar) dedicated for individual coaching sessions.
