Thriving New Professionals is a 6 week online group coaching programme for new professionals in their first 1-4 years that bridges the gap between academic study and supports them to excel in the professional world.


This programme is not all technical and theory, no way!

Thriving New Professionals is interactive and practical to help build confidence, get career clarity and focus, create and build a growth mindset and develop resilience in a supportive group environment of other like-minded professionals.

What are the key outcomes of the programme that individuals will walk away with?

  • Stronger personal identity and self-leadership to show up fully at work and give their best in everything that they do

  • A growth mindset and deep self-confidence that enables them to seek out new opportunities, learning and feedback to deliver great work

  • Tools and strategies to navigate courageous conversations in order to move through anything that comes their way

  • Ability to seek out and receive feedback as a method of development rather than an internalised negative impact

  • Complete ownership of their wellbeing and the tools to build strong resilience to manage expanding responsibilities and overcome any challenges that come their way

  • Clarity on their strengths, career purpose & WHY with steps to continue growing and developing.

Thriving New Professionals is designed to support and empower new professionals to step into their self leadership so they can hit the ground running in their career to move from strength to strength.

“For the first time ever, actually taking the time to really think about all of these topics to get a better understanding about them and where I sit within each. Then I was able to come to realisations about not needing to waste energy in certain places and using that excess energy in other places. Tash had more knowledge than I could have ever imagined and just a very open mind to all of our answers, considering why we may think these things and then also feedback on how we can grow and change these ways of thinking. I wish it could have been longer!”

Izzy, Government Organisation

“I think the TNP course is excellent! I found all of the content to be really useful and perfectly aligned to where I'm at in my early career journey. I found the format of TNP to be well structured, I really enjoyed working through the content and modules independently and then coming back as a cohort to reflect and dive deeper into the topic as a group.

Thank you Tash! I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to participate in TNP, I've learnt so much on this 6 week journey and I'm really excited to continue putting these learnings into my every day practice! I honestly this training has been a real game changer for me!"

When individuals are confident they live into ALL that they are, they value themselves, and give their best in what you do.

They are CLEAR and are moving FORWARD!


They'll know more about themselves which will give them even more awareness to learn more about what's going on around them.

Self-awareness is the key to success in every way that matters!


No matter what comes their way, they'll have the tools, confidence, and capacity to move through it.

Their wellbeing will be on point which will keep them fit for work and life!

“I found the best part of the programme was the coaching calls where we able to ask questions about the module and workbook content and hear what my peers thoughts. Getting well articulated answers from the workbook feedback and the coaching calls really helped to wrap the content up and helped me to apply it in my day to day.”

Nathan, Government Organisation

"I loved the overall content and coaching calls. I was a bit hesitant before this course on what this could offer me but I'm really grateful that I have done the TNP course. It has given me a profound understanding of my identity and my why for my career. I'm sure the skills and knowledge learnt in this course will assist me with not only having a successful career but a balanced and fulfilling life." 

What sets Thriving New Professionals apart?

The holistic and coaching approach I have put at the core of this programme.

Hi, I’m Tash Pieterse. An Internationally Certified Mindset and Leadership Coach with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management majoring in Human Resources and Strategic Management, and a Diploma in Positive Psychology.

In addition to University - I have a 10 year corporate career in Human Resources that spanned across public, private and membership organisations.

Not only from my own overwhelming, terrifying and completely under prepared experience stepping from the university lecture theatre into the corporate world - I have been coaching professionals and seeing the ongoing and lasting impacts of not starting a career with the solid foundations to thrive.

I have taken everything from my career and what I’ve learned coaching my private clients and pulled it together into this practical, transformational and results driven coaching programme.

I believe every single individual has absolutely everything they need to succeed in whatever they choose to do - it’s my mission and job to help them uncover it and step fully into it.

Thriving New Professionals is designed to empower individuals to step into their own confidence, clarity, courage and growth and build a career that is meaningful to them and that supports companies in delivering great services.

I am here to see people thrive and I won’t stop until every new professional receives the tools to do exactly that.

Come join me!

“I found the programme to be extremely reflective and personal. One of my biggest takeaways was about how I wanted to set myself up for the future.

Through this programme you learn to step back, detach and be realistic (kind) to yourself and what you can achieve. You align your own values and goals with your career purpose. By identifying what you value and how you feel (both undesired and desired emotions) you begin to have an awareness about when you are starting to feel overwhelmed and can prevent potential burnout. 

This programme also provided me with techniques and exercises that have helped me prioritise and create a work balance that works for me."

Yana, Summer of Tech

“Since completing Thriving New Professionals, I have noticed a powerful difference in how I show up in the world. I felt myself grow more confident and resilient throughout each module. By assessing my values and redefining what success and failure meant to me, I now feel empowered to be myself and tackle challenges with a strengthened growth-mindset.

Thriving New Professionals is a supportive and safe environment, where I could be myself and feel seen and heard. I recommend the course to anyone who wants to grow and thrive in their career. I highly recommend Tash as a career coach, she’ll cheer you on and you’ll be in safe hands as you step into your truth and new-found power."
