Nankhonde is a pioneer in the use of technology to develop affordable, accessible coaching and human capital development solutions for Africa; solutions that understand and take into account the mosaic of cultural dimensions and the reality of an emerging market context; solutions that are built from African norm groups and that generate valuable data for decision making.
Nankhonde’s philosophy of “African cultural and context-centred design” in leadership development comes from her complex worldview and shapes her impact.
Nankhonde Kasonde-van den Broek is an Executive Coach, development activist and entrepreneur. She is the Lead Consultant at Nankhonde Kasonde Consultancy, and Founder and CEO at ZANGA African Metrics (www.zangametrics.com). Following a decade working in international development and finance, Nankhonde returned to Zambia to pursue her purpose and desire to contribute to her country’s economy and the wider African development agenda. Over the last 10 years she has coached over 1200 clients across the private sector and African governments in 8 African countries. Nankhonde has been a leader in shaping the face of executive coaching across Africa and is a member of the Africa List; an invitation-only group of emerging leaders on the African continent.
Nankhonde is currently working on collaborations to document and share historical, existing and new thought leadership on executive coaching in Africa. She is also working on her first book on one of her coaching models that uses Tornadoes as a metaphor for managing change.
“Nankhonde provides a boldly entrepreneurial and African centred take on coaching.”
