TESTIMONY ON ROGER ARENDSE AS A COACH
Please note this is done in my personal capacity as it is Chevron’s policy not to give references, unless in
personal capacity and not using the company letterhead.
I have had an opportunity of being coached by Roger Arendse as part of the Sunrise Coaching Program,
which was facilitated by the Centre for Coaching based at the UCT Graduate School of Business (GSB).
The aim of the Sunrise program was to create a South African specific coaching program that could be
personalized to the needs of individual employees focusing on developing leadership competencies.
Whilst on the program, each one of us had access to a professionally qualified associate coach who
worked with each employee for a period of 18 months.
I selected Roger Arendse as my coach, from a number of qualified associate coaches, having gone
through all their profiles. One of the major reasons for selecting him was the fact that his background
was different, not the traditional corporate and I needed a fresh perspective.
My period with Roger was for 18 months, the last being October 2013.I found him to be very passionate
about his role as a coach, encouraging, accessible and yet firm, which struck a good balance. His
approach of not imposing but taking one through the journey of discovery with practical take away
projects worked very well with me.
I am proud to say that I have seen a significant positive change in myself, personally and professionally,
that also being verified by feedback reports from those that I work and interact with.
I would definitely recommend Roger for another role as a coach.
