Experience of the Coaching Intervention
Victor Borchers is the epitome of a highly passionate Master Coach and I have had the enormous privilege of having been tutored by Victor for ten very exciting years. Victor’s intense commitment and his stern belief in his personal BHAG (big hairy audacious goal) has resulted in me benefitting from his mature experience and fine teachings; which are beyond compare.
I worked with Victor, first when I was the Front of House Manager at Royal Malewane Private Game Reserve, and now in my current position as General Manager at La Residence Hotel. Victor certainly has unparalleled insight and an amazing gift in his field and I have appreciated and certainly benefitted from being a ‘hungry’ student of his for the last decade.
Victor is a supreme master at coaching – he has proved himself as a great asset to our team and most definitely me. Victor’s professionalism and knowledge are what we all hope for as we continuously strive to go from ‘good to great’ with his help and guidance along the way – Victor accomplishes what many offer but cannot produce.
