Karabelo Selebogo


Karabelo Selebogo is an author, coach, and mentor. She is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her qualifications range from a BSc degree in Chemistry and BSc degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cape Town (UCT), MBA from De MontFort University in the United Kingdom (SA Satellite), to a coaching certificate from Consciousness Coaching (S.A). Karabelo began her coaching journey after gaining experience in chemical engineering, management consulting, investment analysis, and IT business analysis—with experience spanning across the energy, telecom, and financial services sectors.

During her years working in the corporate and consulting environments, and as a committee member of a Business Association, Karabelo worked with many companies (and individuals) on developing working strategies that focused on people, processes, systems, and technology, engaging with individuals from executive to internship level. From these experiences, she earned a well-rounded view of people and business needs.

Throughout her career, Karabelo experienced and noticed how sometimes the brightest were overlooked for great opportunities; how the right people resigned from jobs they were great at; and how others remained (and even succeeded) in jobs for which they were not suited. She witnessed first-hand how the power of self-awareness and confidence combined with a good support system—internally and externally—were common to leaders. Sadly, she also observed that these assets were missing for many, resulting in negative and destructive behaviour.

Karabelo’s primary focus is to provide coaching and mentorship to individuals who are committed to achieving great results wherever they are in their lives and careers, supporting them through all manner of situations. She also works with the community by giving back to disadvantaged youth through her youth empowerment coaching seminars.

Karabelo explains her experiences, lifelong observation and study of people and corporate environments appropriately: ‘Your success depends on being noticeable for the right reasons’. Focusing on creating life-changing results for her clients, Karabelo has changed many lives and helped individuals attract positive outcomes. Her interaction with clients explores the integral link between their self-image and life results.

In her spare time, Karabelo enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and on hobbies including travel, golf, and many outdoor activities.
