Shoni Khangala (CEO and Founder: Potential Exponents)


Potential Exponents offers ETDP SETA Accredited (NQF-aligned) Programme in Coaching and Mentoring. This Programme is aimed at those people in the organization who have a greater influence on how others perform. These include Line Managers, Team Leaders, Supervisors, Skills Development Facilitators and others involved in Human Resource Management.

The accredited Coaching and Mentoring program is the flagship of Potential Exponents’ accredited offerings.


To appreciate Potential Exponents’ contribution to the community during 2015 read the article “Seeing Ability in others“, which was shared with decision-makers on Linkedin on 11th October 2015; as well as a post “A Life has been changed” posted in 2017.

During 2014 Shoni Khangala (CEO and Founder of Potential Exponents) committed himself to a 10-months period with SA-Yes (South African Youth Education for Sustainability) as a Volunteer Mentor.

Many abused, neglected and abandoned children land up in Children’s Homes. Whilst the Homes provide much needed support for the children, when they reach a period when they must leave, many young people end up living on the streets, and in some cases resorting to drugs and crime. Shoni was part of SA-Yes’s mentoring programme which fills the gap between leaving a Home and living independently.

The depth and level of challenges faced in these situations has further enhanced and strengthened Shoni’s capacity in other different types of coaching and mentoring relationships.
