Hi, I’m Tim Goodenough, an Executive Coach and Best-Selling Author who specialises in High Performance. I work with Elite Athletes and Teams, Entrepreneurs and Executive Leaders.
Over the course of 10+ years researching and coaching High-Performance, I’ve compiled a blueprint for Executives & Entrepreneurs. Even if we never work together personally, this free series will greatly benefit and enhance the way you perform in business and life.
“Tim has been a game changer for my business partners and myself. We have taken on a major turn-around project in terms of a new group of businesses that we acquired.
Tim was referred to me by a friend who was a CEO of a large supply chain business and at that stage I was a bit desperate for any form of support that was independent and not emotionally and financially attached to my new business venture. I was not sure what business coaching would entail, but I have found that my time with Tim has been more about performance coaching. I have enjoyed the fact that it is results orientated and it does not feel that it is based on a “one size fits all” approach.
I have learnt a great deal about myself and how I interact with my partners and teams. The largest impact has been that I now view my role as CEO as being a multiplier, which has freed up my mental energy from “working harder”, to now working smarter and viewing a strong work-life balance as an essential part of my role as a multiplier. I have also been thankful to Tim for the work he has done for my two business partners. I have seen the two of them grow in how they value themselves. I have seen them rise to some rather scary challenges and I am aware that they have done so successfully, in part due to the support and valuable input from Tim.”
“I met Tim after having been in my new role as a Head of Technology for about a year and a half, what the role started out as and what it had become at that time were two different things, I ended up being the line manager for more than a 100 people and responsible for over 60 systems. My days started early and was filled with meetings and they ended late with me trying to wrap up emails. Needless to say I left home when the family was sleeping and came home after they had gone to bed. I knew that sooner or later one of three things would break, my family, my health and/or my career, I also knew I needed help. A colleague suggested management coaching and after asking around Tim seemed like a good fit. During the coaching with Tim I was able to refocus how I ran my department, small changes through increased delegation and questioning some of the organisational constructs as well as procedures started giving results. With Tim’s coaching I freed up my time and I am able to provide a vision for my department, backed up with strategies on how to get there, and more importantly I have far more time to spend with my wife and kids, something that was almost impossible in the past. I have also empowered my team leads with the tools and techniques I learned so that they too can improve their quality of life. Thank you Tim for helping me find the balance and at the same time improve my performance”
“Some feel the practical outcomes of coaching are difficult to measure – but not so for me. During my coaching, I had a client issue that could have cost the bank R20m. The negotiations had been difficult and the client wanted to renege on a commitment. A meeting was set up with the CEO as a last attempt to save the situation before implementing long and expensive legal action. Using techniques taught by Tim, the meeting was a success and the client settled the obligation with no loss to the bank”

After working with world class athletes in multiple sports my business partner and I have developed a model that will allow any athlete or team to access their High-Performance Zone. This free series will show you the foundational mental pieces you need and how to train to be your very best.
“One of the first mental coaches I worked with was, Tim. As an aspiring athlete who was still at school, my mind was opened up to thinking in new ways; whether it be to fix a problem, or to achieve a goal. I felt that he taught me perseverance too – seeing the glass half full instead of half empty. It is important as an athlete to develop a winning mindset, and starting young benefited me greatly.”
“I got in contact with Tim at a time when I was emotionally and mentally depleted and had no idea how I would ever find the spark to compete again let alone complete my degree. Tim helped me to finally put to rest the deep-rooted feelings of inadequacy that had pushed me in the past but had since become destructive. With Tim I learnt that I could let go of those feelings of guilt and be free to back myself 100 percent. He helped me reconnect with my passion and for the first time in my career I was able to step into the cage and truly enjoy the entire experience of it. I was finally able to give myself credit for my achievements and am now competing in a way that not only fits in with my studies but adds to my life as well.
To anyone who feels they are stuck in a rut and can’t seem to find the way forward Tim is the person you need to speak to.”
“Tim demonstrates a wide-ranging understanding of human behaviour and motivations. He combines this with systematic thinking and has wonderful ability to communicate this knowledge. He is a passionate guy, whilst maintaining personal humility and a hunger to learn. I recommend him to work with individual performers, or with teams looking to enhance both their environment and performance.”
Tim’s books are built around intensive research on high performance across a variety of fields. Following on from this research he’s developed a series of models and easy to implement tools for unleashing your own peak-performance whether it be at work, in sport or your personal life.
What makes one athlete great and another merely good? Twenty world class athletes share their stories of what enables them to access the ‘zone’ to consistently perform at the top of their game. The result is a powerful set of high performance tools and principles that can be applied in sport, business and life. (Co-authored with Michael Cooper)
A comprehensive resource which unpacks the key dynamics and challenges involved in developing talent. The book contains several models and techniques that can be used as part of a self-coaching programme to enable elite talent development in any field.
The book identifies the 10 healthy beliefs that create healthy self-esteem. The breakthrough technique called Scanning can internalise those healthy beliefs and remove the limiting beliefs trapped in the body. Scanning was developed to stop athletes from choking and has caused a paradigm shift in the field of self-esteem
Together with my business partner Michael Cooper, and a team of professionals, we’ve conducted numerous large-scale organisational development initiatives. Our programmes generally consist of any combination of Keynotes, Training, Facilitation, Executive Coaching, Systemic Team Coaching and e-learning products.
“Since beginning my relationship with Tim as an executive coach, he has been an exemplary professional. With the help of Tim, I have extensively changed my leadership approach. I have learnt new techniques to help me manage my closest stakeholders and to lead my team in a manner that allows them to trust and respect my leadership style. I was also able to determine the best techniques to manage a very busy and highly stressful time in our business. Tim was able to ask the right questions to allow me to find the answers in a manner that I would not have been able to by myself. I was able to relate to his style of coaching and to his reference to sport teams and the similarities between sports and business. I am eternally grateful to Tim for what he has done for me and for opening the doors to allow me to grow and enhance my leadership skills.”
“As convenor of the 2016 Proudly Primary Conference I had the privileged of inviting Tim Goodenough as plenary speaker for this ISASA national conference that attracts over 1200 delegates and guests from all over South Africa. As a conference speaker Tim is remarkably gifted at engaging with delegates on an intimate and personal level and initiating meaningful journeys of evaluation and self-discovery. In the post conference survey, Tim’s presentation features prominently as a highlight of the event. On a personal level, I have had the privilege of hearing Tim speak at several conferences – the ISASA National Headmaster’s Conference being one of these. In each of these, his words have stimulated self-growth and a refreshing change in perspective.”
“My time spent with Tim has been inspirational in so many ways. I have had an opportunity to rekindle my passion for business as well as to re-evaluate my relationships with my family and friends and have let go of many of the negative beliefs and emotions that have kept me from optimum performance. I am re-energised and more passionate about life in general. Thank you, Tim, for your knowledge and insight and the calm and caring manner in which you’ve conducted our coaching sessions. I read your book “In the Zone” and believe that if all business managers appointed themselves as sports coaches and nurtured their teams, that business as well as people would prosper. Thank you for reminding me to live my life rather than just be a spectator.”

“Tim is an extremely talented and deeply-knowledgeable mental coach. He had an ability to help myself and my teammates remain focused, concentrated, motivated and keep our minds in the game for 80 minutes.
Tim doesn’t hesitate to take the time to understand every individual of the team, and through that he is able to figure out what each person needs to achieve and excel in the respective fields.
Tim helped me increase my confidence, and to feel more comfortable on the field. His sessions were all meaningful and helpful, and each session had loads of useful information. He taught me how to handle myself in a way that enabled me to play my regular game all the time. Tim’s mental game techniques have helped me since the very first day I worked with him. He helped me become a better rugby player. I do not have enough words to express my gratitude to Tim.
I would not hesitate to recommend Tim Goodenough to any athlete, in any sports code, who is searching for a performance edge.”
“Tim is an authentic human being and that translates perfectly into his speaking. He manages to captivate his audience and takes them on a journey of self-discovery, whilst in a respectful and entertaining manner, forces them to search hard within themselves for more.
His information is always new, fresh and at the cutting edge of human potential and high performance. He is true to his work and is confident in being 100% authentic, sharing of himself and in doing so being relevant and congruent. Tim is humble enough to take you on a journey with him and to allow you to discover the real you.
Every time I’ve heard him speak, I’ve left thinking there’s more for me to do and I’ve been excited about getting to implement the practical tools and information he’s shared.
Tim set the scene beautifully for the conference and far exceeded expectations. I would have no reservation in recommending him for any event where there is a true commitment to add value to the audience and push the boundaries of what’s possible.
Tim is a great coach, a great speaker and a great teacher. Better than that though he is a great human being!”
