About Take The Lead


Take the Lead is a coaching practice established to empower women to recognise and draw on their own innate ability and resources to unlock their potential and make lasting changes for a better life, health and well-being. Take the Lead is a brain child of Maggie Khunou, which is 100% female owned
company. Maggie is a professional ILS Life Coach, IINH Nutrition and Health coach as well as a CEO of an outdoor advertising company which she started with her partner 16 years ago.

Our approach at Take the Lead Coaching is to consult first with a client to determine their specific needs. We then provide coaching proposals that will best fit our client’s preferred method of coaching delivery.

What is Life Coaching?
Life Coaching is motivational, inspiring, positive, exciting and action driven. Life coaching helps you look at where you are now and where you’d like to be, and helps you bridge the gap. By raising awareness and encouraging you to take responsibility for your life, life coaching can help you rise to your own particular challenge and go further than you ever thought possible.

So, is this magic? Does the Life Coach just wave a magic wand and make everything wonderful?

Sadly no, and it has to be said, that coaching involves a lot of hard work and commitment. However, if you are ready for change in your life, the benefits can be enormous. Life coaching is about assisting a client in closing the gap between where they are & where they want to be.
