Michael’s Testimonial

"My original goal was to define what I wanted my life to look like, post-retirement, and to start putting some of that in place. I guess you could say that it was a multidimensional goal that encompassed the financial, physical, mental, emotional, human, healing and spiritual sides of my life. Those were easy enough to breakdown, using the tools that Telana taught us, into smaller goals, tasks, and do-able action steps. Putting a timeline to them, and having regular accountability sessions in which we shared our progress was a fantastic “guard rail”. Intent is the starting point, but action is [...]

Mmatebo’s Testimonial

"I could recommend it to anyone because the coaching really helped. What I gained was being able to be more confident with myself and social skills. What was helpful is that Telana gave plenty of tips, advice and even practical homeworks to practice in my own time. Which worked wonders. Telana even gave more documents to explore and explain topics discussed further. Inner coaching is a process, but the end results will be awesome because I came out a lot happier with myself. I would hundred percent recommend." - Mmatebo, Graduate. December 2022 About the Speak up like a boss [...]

Lianne’s Testimonial about Bravery School

"Telana, I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you for the work that you do and the time and effort you put into supporting people starting up a new business. Joining Bravery School was one of the best decisions I’ve made. When I first signed up, I had no idea the impact it would have on my thinking, behaviour, decision making and interaction with others. It has been life changing. In addition, it has been affordable for someone starting out and has been worth every cent. You have such tremendous insight into what self-esteem is and the foundations of true [...]

"I would like to share some feedback on today’s masterclass: How to beat imposter syndrome.

Ntombi’s Testimonial

"I saw the post from someone on twitter about the challenge and Its something I needed . I had 2 surgical procedures 3 months apart due to Endometriosis. That really affected my self confidence and caused me so much anxiety. Attending the sessions helped me so much that I challenged myself to approach someone who will help me with the business idea I had but was scared to start. I have definitely told my friends about Telana." – Ntombi, Electrical Engineering Industry April 2021 about the Courage to Speak up like a Boss Challenge 2021

Colette’s Testimonial

“Many thanks for the challenge Telana, I learned a great deal about myself and goal setting. I thought it was so much easier to set myself a goal and stick with it, no wonder I always failed in the past. I never considered having an accountability partner, it’s such a great motivator. Telana, I thought you were exceptional as a coach. You obviously love your subject too! You were warm and friendly and made me feel at home, yet direct and firm guiding the group from not wandering off the subject. You obviously have exceptional knowledge in your subject and [...]

Stuart Dilworth’s testimonial

“Telana is a gifted trainer who imparts her knowledge in a casual, friendly, and personal manner in the language and with examples that relate to the circumstances to make the course easier to understand. Her impact on me throughout the course through her understanding of the human psych has been positive, informative and empowering. Bravery school has been and eye opener. Without any understanding of the psychological elements that have affected me in my own journey through life I always thought I was strong, self sufficient and unhindered by my thought processes. Having done the course, I now realise how [...]

Shanel’s Testimonial

“Hey Telana….I finally got to listen to the first day recording which I absolutely loved! I know you and I did a lot of work a few years back which really transformed and helped me. I think it’s always great to get a refresher and reminder of some of the things I’ve forgotten as well as deepen the neuro-pathways of my new beliefs (because sometimes I do fall back into old easy patterns of behaviour!).  Thank you so much for making this valuable, life-changing content available. - Voice note from Shanel, Corporate Professional, April 2021 regarding the Courage to Speak [...]

Sevarian’s Testimonial

“Bravery School has impacted my life in a very positive way and I can highly recommend these sessions with Telana. I was a bit nervous going into the sessions but quickly found out that these are all normal everyday people that have been feeling the same way that I have. It has been great to have a platform and safe space to be able to share and learn and realizing there's no such thing as a stupid question. I love the interaction with everyone, this has really changed my life.” - Sevarian, Store Manager, January 2022 about Bravery School
