Tim Shaw is a people development practitioner. He completed his BA Ed (Hons) at the Nelson Mandela University in 1985 while working his way into the national cricket team.
His purpose is to live a happy, healthy life helping others to overcome their insecurities and encouraging them to use their unique 'Thumbprints' to make a difference.
After retiring from cricket his passion for nurturing people called him to become a behavioural coach and since 2000 he has worked with teams, leaders and individuals across all business sectors.
He is a certified coach through Mentors and Business Coaches International (MBCI).
Leading Self and Others was born out of personal experiences and the ongoing challenges faced by the people with whom he engages. The book is essentially a life manual for every adult with relevant topics to be used as a quick reference for character and team building. Alternatively, the process of reflecting on thought provoking questions will enable one to break through the constraints of the past which may be holding them back, thereby curtailing their true potential.
He and his wife Heather live in Port Elizabeth which lies on the East coast of the republic of South Africa and they have two adult children, Kendal and Michael.
