new consultancy to focus on senior management

2011-03-03 00:00

A FORMER academic and human resources executive has launched a consultancy in Pietermaritzburg, focusing on executive coaching.

Dr Bill Raubenheimer has launched BDC Coaching, aimed at medium and large companies.

He told The Witness that he plans to use his extensive knowledge and experience to make a meaningful difference in companies.

“I really enjoy helping senior people in organisations. Senior managers and executives in companies are often neglected when it comes to coaching and consultancy services.”

He plans to focus on strategic, change and project management, among other areas.

Raubenheimer, who emigrated from Zimbabwe in 1980, holds a doctorate in organisational theory, specifically organisational structure. He has a BA in psychology and a masters in business leadership.

He was most recently a senior lecturer in management studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

He was in human resource management for about 20 years, mainly in manufacturing in Gauteng.

“A skilled executive coach sees his role as multi-faceted. He will act as part mentor, part challenger, part strategist, part sparring partner, part teacher and part sounding board. His competence and expertise are of paramount importance to establish a credible and confidential relationship between the coach and the executive,” Raubenheimer said.
