Mental Mistakes
The juxtaposition of leadership has always fascinated me as leadership is both the problem and the solution to many of the issues we face today. While on one hand leaders are the root cause for many challenges today, on the flip side they’re also the answer.

Perspective is everything!
Perspective is everything, especially when it comes to examining your beliefs. Are you a soldier, prone to defending your viewpoint at all costs -- or a scout, spurred by curiosity? Julia Galef examines the motivations behind these two mindsets and how they shape the way we interpret information, interweaved with a compelling history lesson from 19th-century France. When your steadfast opinions are tested, Galef asks: "What do you most yearn for?...

Helping clients get unstuck
People who are stuck think there is nothing they can do or they simply don't know what to do next. Being “stuck” is just a belief: We may FEEL stuck—but it's not at all the same thing! We usually already know what we need to do to move forward (end that relationship, get a new job, ...

Story
Tagline
Personal Change Practitioner from beautiful Cape Town, South Africa.
Introduction
Johan Meiring van Zyl. Personal Change Practitioner. Counsellor at Chrysalis Counselling. Coach at (concept) Coaching. Mentor, facilitator, trainer and consultant at MentorIT.

Father of the AmzMonsta (in the real world a sweet 18-year-old girl) and caretaker of said daughter's goldfish, Thing 3.

Loves books, music, movies, writing, food, art, poetry, photography and nature: the Cederberg, the Groot and Klein Karoo and the Cape Coast. Gets there in his Land Rover, Jane. But, most of all, loves the family and friends (and, often, they are the same) who are close to his heart.

Tries to go for a long walk every day, and succeeds just slightly more times than fails. Known to grab the odd picture with a Nikon or an iPhone.

Bragging rights
Dislikes exercise, but starting to get into a bit of walking - hope this grows on me (so that I can stop growing!). Fixes old record players. Listens to Jazz on vinyl. Busy writing a novel (it's going slowly...).
