About Taona Afful

I am passionate to see people and businesses have clarity to focus on what really matters by ‘de-cluttering’ the busyness that steals time. As a Growth Strategist I empower people and businesses to optimise and achieve maximum results by focusing on people, processes, and productivity.  

Growing up I have always been drawn to how things work, and how to make them better. As a coach, my focus is to facilitate a process that helps leaders and businesses define their goals, generate insights, and identify solutions that work for their unique situations. With the right process, you can attain successful results that are consistent and repeatable.

“My vision is to empower leaders and businesses to create systems that support their vision by equipping them with tools to increase their professional and leadership visibility”.

Why Coaching?

Coaching works! Coaching as a process for achieving peak performance is borrowed from elite performers like athletes and actors. Bill Gates, one of the most prominent global leaders of our time, has said “Everyone needs a coach”.


  • Is an essential part of a learning process
  • Helps unpack complex issues
  • Increases clarity and improves understanding
  • Inspires creativity and problem-solving
  • Gives you the resources to future proof your career or business

With the amount of disruption occurring all around us, the people and businesses that survive are those that are willing to adapt by continually changing and learning. Our coaching will equip you with the capabilities you need to successfully navigate the disruptions we are all facing.
