Employees are searching for meaning

Wholeness@Work programs support professionals throughout the employee life cycle. From pipeline, onboarding to role change or even retrenchment, every individual deserves whole person support.

Employers are facing increasing pressure to support employees and manage workforce risk factors such as worker satisfaction and workforce productivity.

People disengage from work when they feel disconnected.


Intrinsic motivation is a unique iceberg of meaning, and this is usually the “heart” stuff that is tricky to tackle during office meetings.

We help your people with their “heart stuff, addressing the ‘deeper’ aspects of employee wellbeing, including mental wellbeing, social wellbeing, financial wellbeing, personal growth and purpose.

PALESA MOTHAPO, PHD Head: Postdoctoral Research Support at Stellenbosch University

One of the best outcomes was the mental wellness and financial mastery courses, which helped our postdocs immensely. The holistic focus on personal development looking at how our vision, goals and purpose are aligned, coupled with building more practical skills for personal management is the most amazing part of the training. Through shared experiences, the workshops always creates a safe space to really explore some of the core issues limiting us.

Lorraine Kruger Operations Director at Effective Human Intervention

“Cheryl worked with us on our Women in Leadership Event in PE and she presented on "Lead from Power, not Pain". She had a tremendous impact on the ladies, there were quite a few in tears while listening to her story. Cheryl rated as one of our top speakers and was referred to as ‘inspiring’ and ‘powerful’. We will be booking Cheryl for our next event. If you are looking for impact, inspiration and motivation, then Cheryl is highly recommended.”

Dr. Manfred Molomo Faculty Manager at the University of the Pretoria

Cheryl worked with us at the University of Pretoria as an intervention for one of our departments. She conducted a full day training on values, personality profiles and team dynamics. The training had a far greater impact than expected. She was able to address the root causes of poor employee performance, lack of employee engagement and motivation. We will definitely highly recommend Cheryl as she is knowledgeable and up to date in her field and presents her material professionally.

Nugent Lewis Deputy Director: Postgraduate Office Head: Postgraduate Student Funding and Support, Stellenbosch University

Thanks for your context-driven, application based training for our postgraduates, Cheryl. "No one ever taught me these things before" - typical feedback that we receive after your sessions. I am confident that this innovative approach allows for our postgraduates, diverse and multicultural, further tools to not only navigate their postgraduate studies but certainly post-university life in general. Would definitely recommend your services to any organisation, especially those producing young talent.
