Leadership ACTION through Practical Application

About Dr. Michelle van Tonder

Helping you take Leadership ACTION through PRACTICAL Application 

'Leadership', a most misunderstood concept in the world. 

I help people to understand the concept of Leadership and how to practically apply the skills relevant to what authentic leadership is.

Leadership is People work and Management is Paper work.

I am Dr Michelle the person who is going to help you understand how to take Leadership ACTION and APPLY the leadership skills you need. I am committed to helping everyone become more effective leaders in the workplace, within their teams, with themselves and in their personal lives through my membership site 'Now2NextLeadership' utilizing online resources, online coaching and online seminars. You may catch me at the occasional live events. Look out for those. :) 

My true passion is educating people about Leadership and how they can get to know who they are as leaders. I love my 10 grandchildren and want to be a role model for them. I also love to travel and learn about new cultures. Having said that, I love being at home. (Happy wife, happy life) 

What makes me unique?

I teach and share from my experiences of over 30 years of being in the corporate sector, what it was like to be a female in a male dominated retail environment as well as over R565,000 invested in personal development courses and training. I take all of my training, education and life experiences and use them to support you in your success.

Let me support you in:

The challenges leaders face every day with the essential skills they need to be successful. 

  • Leading      Your Self 
  • Leading      Others
  • Leading      Managers 
  • Leading      Roles and Responsibilities
  • Leading      the Organization 
  • Leading      Stakeholders

Leadership skills should continue to evolve and adapt in order to meet the constantly changing conditions and challenges of a global marketplace.
