Prior to moving to the USA in 1992, Ursula had a consulting company in South Africa. She focused primarily on assisting organizations to address the communication and conflict issues which arose from their conversion to fully integrated, equal opportunity employers while still operating within the apartheid system.
These issues ranged from supporting and accelerating the integration of black staff within the white western business culture to addressing the backlash from white staff who were resistant to this change in corporate policy. During this period, she gained invaluable experience mediating and supporting diverse groups to resolve their conflicts and find meaningful ways to work together.
A large part of Ursula’s success comes from her keen ability to listen with neutrality and sensitivity to her clients and, from there, collaborating with them to identify and attain their desired outcomes. Ursula feels strongly that given the amount of time spent working, strong trusting relationships are crucial to ensuring a quality of life that is not only productive but joyful.
She is deeply committed to supporting executives to enhance the quality of their relationships at work by enhancing their ability to connect and form trusting strong bonds which in turn enhances their ability to resolve conflicts and disagreements that inevitably arise out of the normal course of doing business.
Born, raised and for the most part educated in South Africa, Ursula has lived permanently in the US since 1992. Raised as a white person within the apartheid system of South Africa she felt deeply the inequities of her privileged life and was dedicated to making constructive change to the inequalities she experienced. Since moving to America she remains dedicated to supporting increased diversity within organizations.
She was raised in an entrepreneurial family and has participated in family businesses from an early age, giving her an inside understanding of the dynamics of running businesses. She enjoys travel and has spent lengthy periods in Europe, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Iceland.
