Sika and Associates
(Coaches and Trainers) ​

Sika Twum

Lead Coach

Some adjectives that best describe Sika are passionate, people-oriented, positive, and poised. Sika is a master at disrupting old practises and igniting the potential of people to create new possibilities for their lives.

As a seasoned transformational leadership coach, trainer, facilitator, career coach, and speaker with a combination of over 30 years of professional experience, she has supported CEOs, managers, and leaders in both the private and public sectors to ignite their potential, self-actualize, and maximise their performance in varied areas of their lives.

The success of her work is measured in the results and value addition she gives to the clients she engages in coaching, training, or career service provision. She is not afraid to question or challenge the validity of her clients’ assumptions about themselves, others, or life, which have become a glass ceiling for them to create the life they want.

She holds possibility for her clients, even when they are not feeling any, and uses that to support them by helping them reframe what is happening in their lives in a reassuring and supportive context.

She partners with them to create extraordinary results and manifest their potentials through the facilitation of deep transformative work that produces tangible and rewarding results.

As the Coach for MTN Women in Technology, ABSA Bank Women in Leadership, Barry Callebaut, and Cargil Ghana, to name a few, Sika has helped her clients, both male and female, to access their authentic confidence, gain self-love, find their voice and visibility, step into their zone of greatness, and create pathways that anchor their impact, success, influence, and fulfillment. She gets her clients to dive deep into themselves and navigate difficult conversations in order to become their best selves.

She is the creator of the life-transforming personal development luxury coaching package “Becoming My Best Self,” which consists of seven powerful modules for smart, successful women between the ages of 45 and 65. The modules are: releasing my fears, loving myself, embodying authentic confidence, owning my voice and visibility, connecting to co-create, stepping into my purpose contribution, and flying at maximum 5.

She is described as “the difference that makes the difference in coaching, training, and facilitation.”

She has created positive shifts in the lives of people and organisations in various countries within Africa, Europe, Asia, and the United States of America.

She brings into her coaching, training, and facilitation practise her authentic self and extensive rich experience—a hybrid of skills and competencies drawn from her background in psychology, counselling, education, and human resource management as well as John Maxwell Coaching practices, Feminine Power principles, practices, and methodology, Ryan Eliason’s Visionary Business School’s revolutionary approach to business, and her experiences as a Ken Blanchard Trainer.
Sika has a bachelor’s degree in educational psychology, guidance, and counselling from the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria, and a postgraduate certificate in business administration from the University of Leicester (UK). She is a Certified Human Resource Practitioner and Trainer from the American Certification Institute (USA), a Certified International Gestalt and Systems Development Practitioner from the Gestalt Center for Organization and Systems Development in Cleveland (USA), and an aspiring John Maxwell Coach and Certified Feminine Power Transformational Coach. She is a member of the Gestalt Africa Community of Practice, the Association of Coaching Practitioners Ghana, and the Association of Human Resource Management Practitioners (GH). She is a career consultant for TDI Global Canada on the MY3D project.

Sika was the sole counsellor for the nation’s leading international school (Ghana International School), where she worked for 13 years and set up the school’s counselling and career development center.

She is the founder and CEO of Self Search Ghana Limited, a human development solutions firm that provides services in coaching, corporate training, and career services. Her company is known for excellence in career service delivery in both public and private international schools.

Self-Search was the sole organisation that received Ghana Education Service approval for six years running to provide career services in senior high schools in 10 regions of Ghana to support students in finding themselves and making informed educational and career-related decisions. Her work with students in shaping their career paths has won her several awards.

Her company was selected to partner with World University Services of Canada (WUSC) on a 5-year INVEST project for a gender-sensitive career project, where she spearheads the training and certification of career service providers and sets up career centres for select TVET institutions within the Accra, Kumasi, and Takoradi regions of Ghana.

Her most profound statement is, “If you can see it, you can create it and have it.”
