Leadership Coach | Carla Rossouw

Today we’re meeting Carla a qualified, management professional and leadership coach, based in South Africa. These days in particular, great leadership skills are the ones that could make a huge difference in an organization.

Carla has more than 14 years of experience in a variety of industries and roles, with 7 years spent in Human Resources, Organisational Change Management, and Talent Management.

She has successfully supported organizations in bringing the organizational strategy to life through people and operations management.

I have a passion for helping people reach their potential and to develop authentic leadership skills.

We asked her a few questions to get to know her better.

Why did you join Work for Impact?

My motivation for joining Work for Impact is two-fold. Firstly, I want to expand my network in order to secure global opportunities. Secondly, I want to give back to young, aspiring leaders. Along my development journey I had, and still have, an amazing network of people that supported my development that made development opportunities accessible.

What motivates you?

I have an absolute passion for people. From my early career in the Hospitality sector I realised the importance of people in the organisation and this has sparked a desire to enable organisational success through people development. I am passionate about unlocking leadership ability within individuals so that they can meaningfully contribute to the organisation’s bigger picture.

How would you contribute to make the world a better place?

I help aspiring leaders to develop authentic leadership skills so that they can lead in a meaningful way in the corporate environment. By unlocking authenticity in the way that individuals lead themselves and others, the organisation can leverage the collective leadership power and realise greater success.

Favourite organisation?

There is not one single organisation that stands out as my favourite. I rather draw my leadership inspiration from the lived values of these organisations, which permeates the organisation from the top down.
