Morning Sandra my name is Plaatjie Sekete working at ArcelorMittal South Africa in Vanderbijlpark. The Lemasa programme helped me a lot and it opened new opportunities for me and I'm now furthering my studies because of this programme.
How did you the coaching centre (MDC) assist you in your quest for development and career?
It equipped me on a middle management level with the necessary competencies to implement within the organisations’ strategic objectives. Furthermore, the programme helped me to develop a basic understanding of the different fields of management to ensure that I do not perform my own management functions in isolation.
Doing articles and the MDC with LEMASA, was the toughest time of my life. I thought that Christine was out to get me. I was right, Christine and LEMASA was on a mission to get every ounce of talent, skill and leadership out of me. I hated it then, but I know its true value now.

It is a pleasure to declare that I made use of the MDC coaching centre and its personnel in the past on various occasions.
Knowing the personnel for a long time I found them very helpful, competent and eager to give assistance.
The course exceeded my expectations. It was Insightful, enormously valuable and professionally lead. The role-play or scenario based training increased my confidence and gave me insights into how I react when put in certain types of scenarios.
What were some of the positive outcomes of the coaching sessions with the assigned coach?
The coach proved me tips and tricks on how to deal with senior people, difficult situations and finally implement certain actions so that I could benefit of learning the business for example mentoring.
How did attending the Coaching Centre (MDC) assist you in your quest for development and career?
MDC helped me identify areas of development to get me to the next level in my career, but most importantly it assisted me to be more confident as an individual. It was also a great networking opportunity.
