Our Story

In South Africa, our education system does not embrace individuality and does little to encourage individuals to celebrate their uniqueness or to develop diverse outlooks. Its focus is on standardizing and producing programmed and automated students who all strive for the same outlooks, strengths and outcomes that are deemed important. Indeed, critical and out of the box thinking is not encouraged or nurtured.

This has resulted in high levels of inadequately skilled individuals who struggle to fit into careers and jobs they have pursued…
Our education system does not birth entrepreneurs, which is what the world’s economy (and our country and continent) need in the fourth industrial revolution.

The current economic situation in our country requires a different approach. It does not require more of the same – it requires critical thinkers who understand that individual and unique strengths and outlooks are what the world needs to move forward and prosper.

At Grooming The Executive, we believe that all people have something they are good at, love doing or are passionate about.

If these qualities are encouraged and developed, these strengths nurtured and enhanced then people will be better positioned to contribute effortlessly towards the betterment of our country & continent (and the economy at large).

When children are taught from a tender age, the necessary skills required to make sound choices, how to establish and set goals, to participate and contribute positively in their community etc., not only will they be easily employable, they will be able to flourish in their everyday lives and make a difference of gigantic proportions. This will result in happy and fulfilled individuals working towards the future betterment of the economy and the continent.

Our Vision

To harvest potential and talent, to grow individuals and entities to gigantic proportions.

Our Mission

To stimulate growth and much needed transformation for Small Medium Enterprise (SME) businesses (especially women and young people) in rapidly evolving economy.
