WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT OUR MENTORING COURSES

The LifeXchange course, as well as my interaction with the mentee, was the most exhilarating experience in my life. Above all, I learnt a lot about myself and how to manage my own behaviour under challenging circumstances.

~ Dr. Alfonso Niemand

I can honestly say that I cannot imagine my life without the course. I have learned so much and will be eternally grateful that I took the course. I believe that what I now know will benefit me on all my paths in life. I would like to thank the LifeXchange team for this. It is an excellent course and definitely a valuable asset to anyone.

~ Monique Visser

This course has equipped me and given me many tools to tackle many things in life! My whole outlook on life is calmer and I am no longer chasing the wind! My positive days are far more than the negative ones.

~ Doré Lourens

BECOMING A CERTIFIED MENTOR


Important: There are loads of mentoring courses around, but the difference with LifeXchange is not only the advanced neuroscience and our amazing success stories – see LifeXchange’s huge social impact – but it’s the fact that our course is recognised and supported by so many official organisations and bodies in South Africa – we even do professional mentoring training for entire companies!

When you’ve completed both the Discover Mentoring Course and the Master Mentoring Course, you get the option of adding full and official mentor accreditation with the South African Board for People’s Practices (SABPP) to your name. That means you get accreditation to use your skills professionally as part of your job – and stand a much better chance of getting the job you’ve always wanted too!

Don’t wait. Create your own future: sign up right now.

CAN ANYONE BE A MENTOR?


“It’s an idea I use to struggle with, the thought that a student or young person could mentor someone, it seemed funny because you expect a mentor to be older and more experienced,” says LifeXchange founder, Dr Cobus Oosthuizen. “But one day I realised that if you’ve done or achieved anything in life – finished matric, written a book, completed a training – then your experience is definitely priceless to any person who hasn’t done that thing yet.

“So, the short answer is: YES! Absolutely. Young or old. From every walk of life. Every single one of us knows something that can really help someone else. We can all mentor someone and, no matter how small it seems to you, it can make a huge difference in their life. 

“In fact, mentoring is probably a big part of how we as a species got to where we are today, and it’s what will help drive our society into a brighter, better future!”
