    How to find your true strengths with Dries Lombaard

    How to find your true strengths with Dries Lombaard

    In this episode, we interview Dries Lombaard, an executive Strengths coach.
    You can visit his website at strengthsynergy.co.za or reach out to him at dries@strengthsynergy.co.za 

    Dries Lombaard has always been a keen observer of trends and changes within a fast-pacing society. An entrepreneur by nature, he has ventured into numerous fields of interest, always keen to learn more about, and analyzing critically, what makes things tick underneath the surface. This kindled his interest in leadership development early in his life.

    Dries was trained by the Gallup University (Faith Practice) in Omaha, Nebraska as a Strengths Performance Coach (SPC III) in 2006, and also studied at the Universities of Stellenbosch and Pretoria where he majored in psychology, theology, history and philosophy.
    He holds Certifications from Strengths Strategy (USA), the International Coach Academy (ICA), and is also a certified coach (ACC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF).

    He was invited to be part of the Gallup Strengths Advisory Forum (2013) – then being the only member outside of the USA on the forum. Dries is personally acknowledged for “taking StrengthsFinder into Southern Africa” and for establishing one of the strongest Strengths Coach networks globally.

    With more than 7000 hours of active Strengths Coaching experience with individuals and teams under his belt Dries has coached individuals and teams in countries like Russia, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Turkey, Thailand, China, Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Libya, Dubai, Thailand, South America, Canada, Nigeria, Kenia, Botswana, Namibia, Morocco and South Africa.

    Dries has done Coach Training, Team Facilitation or Executive Coaching for employees and leaders in corporate companies like Aurecon, BASF, First National Bank, Aveng, MTN, Alan Gray, AVBOB, Discovery, MMI, ABSA, Momentum, Old Mutual, VISA, and Volkswagen and Nissan. He has personally trained more than 1200 Strengths Coaches globally.

    Dries about himself: "I am a committed husband, proud father of 4 lovely daughters, who loves my country, my city, my home and my private space…. I love to watch rugby and cricket and don’t understand football (soccer) at all. I only do real coffee from beans (the only thing God created to be in powder form is the Sahara desert), and I regard meat as being food, and the rest on my plate I eat only not to be rude to the cook. I am at my best when I train, coach or mentor people who reflect the need and willingness to become the best they can be".

    Why you should start playing with your food with Sophie Yotova

    Why you should start playing with your food with Sophie Yotova

    Sophie Yotova is a Bulgarian food artist, TEDx speaker, certified Eating Psychology coach, and the founder and CEO of Foodie Boulevard – a global social enterprise that teaches kids and grown-ups to become real-life superheroes by using food as a superpower on and off the dining table.

    Sophie has bachelor’s degrees in Journalism and Business Administration and has worked in graphic design, PR, and technical communication before starting her own business.
    After experiencing a series of traumatic personal events, which led to her suffering a painful miscarriage and burning out, in 2017, Sophie left her flourishing corporate career in IT and jumped into social entrepreneurship.

    Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Sophie and her team used to lead in-person courses, training sessions, and workshops at schools and for corporate clients, teaching people to discover food outside the box and helping them build sustainable healthy eating habits while having fun.

    After the quarantine wiped out her practice, Sophie focused on reinventing her business and recently moved her work to the online space. Sophie has struggled with an eating disorder since she was a teenager and has never had a sense of smell in her life. These two peculiar features make up a unique lens, which empowers her to view and explore food beyond the trivial and mundane, and to inspire people from all ages and walks of life to use food as a playground, a stimulating learning environment, and a language of self-expression.
