Beyond The Stethoscope

Dec 21, 2021

Favorite quotes of the episode: 

“Recognize that there’s very little we can control because when we try to control everything, it can just spiral us further down.”

“I feel great today, what did I do yesterday? Note to self, let’s do that more.”

“I’m just striving to be a better person today than I was yesterday.”

Episode Overview

In this episode, I talk with Marilise de Villiers.  She is the founder and CEO of ROAR Coaching and Consulting. She’s a mover and shaker in the cybersecurity space and is changing the current landscape. She believes that people are the greatest asset when it comes to keeping organisations and society safe. Her approach is to coach and support cybersecurity executives on the design and delivery of effective people and behavioural change strategies.

Through her consulting, training and coaching she is on a mission to create high performing cultures. Integral to this work is her conviction that the workplace today is in dire need of more kindness, clarity and engagement around a common vision in order to deliver world class results. Looking past our differences and seeing the good in others can make our working lives a lot happier, more fulfilling, productive and profitable.

Marilise’s one-to-one clients usually come to her when they are facing challenging situations at work that seem unsolvable. They feel isolated and alone and are simply tired of firefighting; they need a simple approach that will help them take back control. Working with Marilise brings clarity on the person they wish to become and the legacy they wish to leave behind.
