Amanda Strydom

International Coach and Trainer

Amanda is a go-getter, a vivacious woman with a passion for people and positive change. Mahatma Gandhi once said, “you must be the change that you want to see in the world.” Amanda clearly lives this and implements positive change through tailored education and coaching programs; thus creating the change the world needs.

As an international coach and consultant, her 20-year career and experience span locally and internationally with a diverse client base, ranging from the age of 8 and the oldest being over 80. This is a clear sign that there are very little limitations when it comes to empowering people’s minds and lives through her blended approach.

Having lived and worked abroad Amanda has insight into different cultures, traditions, and religions. This is just one of the reasons why she is able to work effectively and help men and women from all walks of life.

During the earlier years of her career, Amanda delved deeper and completed explorative research about “how people change”. Looking specifically at what happens to an offender (ex-prisoner) when released back into society, business and family. As a result of this research, Amanda has built many programs, one of which is “Coaching With Impact” and advanced coach training program which includes credentialing by COMENSA (Coaching and Mentoring South Africa).

As a specialist in people change, Amanda continues to create successful programs and execute them in various situations. For example, in the corporate world, Amanda works alongside the Change Management Team (and Exco) and implements a Coaching program, which ensures the people change and adapt with as little stress as possible. Some of her impact areas are, but not limited to, retrenchment coaching programs, merger people coaching, relationships, re-integration, health, entrepreneurs and Sports BTM to name a few. Change is our only constant in life and Amanda is really great at helping people ride the waves of change with joy and even grit when necessary.

Amanda strives for intentional excellence with brilliant execution, which is more than just being professional. LifeZone on this website, is one one of the ways she helps others find passion for living well or for being a “Life Changer”.

Amanda’s Promise To You

Under the banner of transparency, here is what is important to me :)

Everything needs to be practical and work easily. I will never train you to use tools that I have not tried and tested or personally developed from years of experience. You can be assured that what you learn from me as a coach or a trainer…. works. My programs have a 100% success rate.

  • Transformation/Empower
  • Sustainable Solutions
  • People Development
  • Excellence
  • Making the Complex Simple

I respect peoples time; so if you are late for class, we would have started. There is no judgement for you being late; you just miss out.

It is just important to me that we value each other’s time and respect those who show up on time. So, I start class on time. I am known for saying at the beginning of class “if we start on time we finish on time, or earlier” 🙂

Yes life does get in the way and things are unavoidable – I just encourage people to be “Intentional”.

After working, coaching or training with me, I can guarantee that you will never be the same.

You will personally grow and see life through new lenses.

Paradigm shifts are “par for the course”.

I operate from a place of strict confidentiality.

Every individual is valued and respected, regardless of different culture, faith or belief system.

We are in an era of great technology, which means we can meet from around the world and across most time zones. This creates tremendous flexibility as to how I can coach, train and consult.

I predominately use Zoom for coaching and training, and open to onsite local corporate meetings when necessary.
