About Us


Star Leadership was formed in 2013, with a primary focus on offering Coach Training and Leadership Development programmes to organisations and individuals. We have since grown into one of South Africa’s top coaching companies, offering a wide variety of development programmes; namely Star Coach Training and Leadership Development Programme, Star Leadership Development, Mentorship Programmes and a Consulting arm to offer business around the country a first class experience, bringing in the latest global trends in leadership thinking.

Our values are: be real, be true and be you. Our material is designed to significantly impact how you think, decide and act, empowering a real and sustainable shift in yourself by raising your levels of Consciousness, Self-Awareness and promoting genuine Self-Love.

The effect of this is a shift from the need to be the best “in” the world, to a desire to be the best “for” the world.

STAR Methodology


At the heart of the STAR Methodology TLC, it’s about getting REAL. Breaking free from the self-monitoring cocoon so many people experience every day in order to fit in and belong, and connecting to a purpose that deeply inspires and aligns you. We do this by embarking on a process that helps raise one’s level of spiritual (SQ), emotional (EQ), adversity (AQ), creativity (CQ), physical (PQ) and love quotient (LQ).

Transcendence is about rising above the self and relating to that which is greater than the self. It involves individuals conceiving themselves as an integral part of the universe as a whole. It is about moving beyond the ego, it is about seeing the world from a universal perspective.

‘Transcendence’ refers to the very highest and most inclusive or holistic levels of human consciousness, behaving and relating to oneself, to significant others, to human beings in general, to nature, and to the cosmos. (Maslow, 1971, p. 269)

At the heart of this model, the intention is to connect each one of us to who we really are such that we can create Responsible, Empathic, Authentic Leaders of Change (REAL).
