Lana Potgieter

SMI Team Cape Town
Lana Potgieter

Lana started this business after completing the "Dynamics of Personal Goal Setting" Program from SMI. Through the program she realised what "this" was what she truly wanted to do in her career.

Her extensive experience and knowledge of SMI programs has been applied with measurable results with clients in all spheres of life & business. Her passion for, and belief in her own and other peoples growth and happiness is instantly noticeable, and undeniably gives her an edge as she supports and inspires people to work to their strengths, find their passion and clarify their mission and purpose.

Lana knows each individual and company is unique in their requirements, needs, environment and resources and she delivers a dynamic & client focussed solution to fit with those demands.

She has done work with entrepreneurs, sales teams, in manufacturing businesses and also within corporate & financial institutions. Home-schooling Moms and teenagers have also benefited from their investment in themselves with SMI and Lana.

The result has been that these individuals have achieved clarity of vision and purpose, and success in their personal life, careers and businesses, enabling them to increase focus, efficiency, happiness, fulfilment and balance in their lives.

Her favourite 'people to work with are with First-line Managers, Team Leaders and Youth.

With First-line Managers and Team Leaders she has successfully put Mentorship programs in place to assist businesses to capitalize on the experience and loyalty of their core staff; and to prepare them adequately to be part of their company's Succession Plan.

With Youth she focuses on creating "Champions" who are pro-active, future focussed, self-confident and have a strong work ethic - ready to make meaningful contributions to their communities at school, study and in the economy as they work to their strengths.

Lana has also been interviewed by SUMMIT TV on "Retaining Talent in your Organization".

She balances her business life with being Mom to 2 young adult children, Neil and Abigail and has been married to Henry for 19 years.

Lana is passionate about igniting the potential in people - helping to unlock the limitless possibility in each of us in order for us to discover our purpose and create a plan for its fulfilment!
