NEIL BIERBAUM has been an executive, leadership and life coach since 2005. He offers coaching programs for corporate executives and teams, and for private individuals, all directed at moving to high performance and greater personal effectiveness.
“Personal Effectiveness means having the personal power to consciously achieve optimal performance in service of your most meaningful goals while remaining present and peaceful in the midst of life’s turbulence.”
Neil has thousands of hours of coaching and training experience at the highest level and has worked with corporates from a CEO level down, as well as celebrities and high performing entrepreneurs. He is credentialed as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF).
Neil is an award-winning features writer and currently contributes to various magazines. He was the founding editor of two men’s magazines in South Africa (Directions and FHM), and has since operated as a media consultant and Internet entrepreneur, which included two years as managing director of an Internet services company. He holds a commerce degree, has auditing experience, and studied psychology.
His clients benefit from his all-round experience and high levels of clarity, creativity and commitment. By combining his broad range of people and process skills with management and coaching experience he supports executives, teams and individuals to create a platform for maximum creativity and productivity and, most importantly, to produce results.
“Great coaching is invisible. It leaves you feeling that you created the solution for yourself, and this is necessary for adoption and integration. It should not feel like work, but liberation. It should create independence and self-sufficiency, and leave you feeling inspired and having the tools to continue to grow.”

The following books authored by Neil are available on Amazon:
Short, pithy, poetic and powerful leadership insights for the modern world.
Written in a style drawn from the ancient wisdom tradition but with relevance to the modern leadership context.
None of the usual cliches here, these are original and hard-hitting and will expand your perspective.
You can read this book in one sitting. However, you would do better to read one maxim a week—there are 52 after all—and use it to support your self-development process. You can also dip into it when you are dealing with a conundrum and need guidance—either by focusing on the problem and opening to a page as you feel guided or by using the quick reference guide at the end to select a particular theme.
This is a book that you’ll want to keep near at hand, and refer to often.
