Our deployment with Pisa impacted us by teaching us a different way to think holistically. Our team dynamics has changed for the better as we’ve learnt how to get the best out of our people. Pisa thinking model has taught us to be curious and question things – our favourite term is: “I’ve Pisa’d it!”, meaning we have asked enough questions to understand and learn.

Our people gained insight into addressing the root cause of a problem instead of just addressing the symptoms.

Pisa had a major challenge changing the mindsets of management, which did the same thing for over 25 years. Their patience and pro-active approach really paid off!

Junit Manufatcuring Jurie Bester, Owner, Executive Director

Meeting Paul from Pisa was very important, because he is the best coach I’ve ever known. Through his sessions I got to know how much I could improve myself, develop not only my language but also my faith. During my sessions with him, I realized that Coaching was not enough to bring me happiness and accomplishments because I believe in something bigger than an ephemeral life. I believe it’s necessary to work hard and achieve goals and he showed me how I can do this. Thank you for everything.

Pisa was instrumental with guiding my collection of thoughts into a concise, relevant personal mission statement. It was very impactful to clearly define my vision in life because it enabled me to then develop tactical steps to achieve that mission. Paul is a master of self-discovery and there are endless “ah-ha!” moments during his coaching sessions. I would recommend Pisa to anyone who is driven to further achieve their true potential in life.

New Hampshire, USA Ben Peterson, Financial Professional

Pisa helped me develop my personal mission statement by giving me the tools I needed to realise my mission in life and how to portray my vision in the most concise way possible. With their guidance and instructing I was able to confidently construct my vision. I know I can always rely on Pisa to give their honest opinion and feedback to improve my vision, mission and goals.

Pisa has been involved in the implementation of K-Way LEAN Journey which has been truly transformational for my team and for myself. Since we started with our LEAN implementation we have gone from strength to strength as a business and today we are revered as a beacon of hope in our struggling industry. The approach of the Pisa Team has been one of patience, firmness and competency which has ensured that we continue to stay focused on continuous improvement I have had interactions with many other consultants who profess to be able to implement LEAN, however, when put to the test they never really deliver an effective and sustainable change in people behaviour, which had resulted in sliding back to the traditional methods and management practices. Not with Pisa! It has been a true pleasure to have Pisa in our business as our LEAN coaching partner.

Camphill Village was established in 1964 to provide a unique inclusive approach to life for intellectually challenged adults, offering purpose and dignity. It provides a home and workplace for about 95 residents, offers therapies, and an opportunity for self-development. While our organisation had a strong history and foundation, we needed to renew its culture, make it current and able to rise to challenges facing NPC's in South Africa today. Herlecia Stevens, Business Coach at PISA Consulting, facilitated our transformation over one year. While working with the CEO and management team, she helped us find trust and a common direction. The process was light and fun resulting in personal and organisational growth. She was a wonderful catalyst and support during this time of change, and we have grown enormously as a result of the work. Herlecia is professional, fun, can think on her feet, but most importantly won the trust and appreciation of a diverse group of people, who allowed her to take them on a journey of learning.

In support of the Operational Excellence (OE) drive at one of the Imperial Divisions, Pisa was requested to assist Imperial Cargo, one of the businesses in this Division, to get their Operational Excellence deployment off the ground. Paul spent a lot of time guiding and coaching Senior Leadership on OE and effective problem solving. With his extensive knowledge he assisted the Leadership Team, together with their respective teams, to apply and extract value from Lean principles and practices. During his engagement, he also assisted with the development of key CI individuals. Not only does he enable others through his knowledge and experience, but also through the Lean Thinking and Leadership he embodies. Although the OE momentum at this business was unfortunately interrupted earlier this year due to COVID-19 and business changes, the development and empowerment of the individuals involved still remain an invaluable contribution.

Our company Foschini (including Donna, Soda Bloc and Colette), brands within the TFG Group have worked with Pisa Consulting since 2017. Paul from Pisa, has provided us with Process Reviews for new business processes, systematically taking the team through the process, mapping out all the detail and ensuring the business introduces new elements without impacting the main business focus. He worked with many teams on team dynamics, results-driven and ownership. The teams were all extremely impressed and felt they had grown themselves in understanding their impact to the performance. Over and above these projects, Paul has run our company strategy for the past 2 years. Paul's structured approach mixed with appropriate team building has really made this process a major success. The end results are clear, concise and structure in a way to easily manage the required processes to deliver. I can highly recommend Pisa as a consulting business.

Paul has worked directly and indirectly with me and my teams over the last 15 years. I can with confidence confirm that he is an amazing coach, facilitator and process guru. His approach and style is inclusive and thorough and has certainly played a huge role in my team and I achieving our goals. He took me on a journey that allowed me to discover who I am and what my purpose is, and he provided action plans to help me get there. Part of his process is equipping stakeholders with tools to think for themselves and face solution orientated thinking for the long term. His tools allow for accurate and proper objective setting, measuring those objectives and holding stakeholders accountable. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul’s services.
