Farai with a bushy beard, smiling

Peace! I'm Farai

I coach people managers, speak, and write, about how to have 1:1 meetings that unblock career progress.



I work with new and emerging leaders around the world to increase their people leadership skillset and develop effective, inclusive practices that make them better at handling the responsibility of looking after people's careers. Not sure if you're ready for coaching?


I speak around the world and online. These days I'm focussed on talking about having effective 1:1 conversations between managers and team members. If you’d like me to speak at a public or private event, catch me on farai (at) hey.com.
