HUMANESSENCE (Pty) Ltd
What drew me into this profession in the first place was a deep need to understand myself.
I have a personal story behind each of the three focus areas of my business and I believe this allows me to relate to my clients in an authentic, meaningful way.
In the context of SELECTION, I have personally experienced being in a "wrong fit" job and the burnout that follows. Furthermore, from the perspective of the employer, I have witnessed first-hand the repercussions of bad hiring decisions as a result of cutting corners and skipping the Psychometric Assessment process, which inevitably leads to devastating financial and other consequences for the business.
With regards to DEVELOPMENT, my journey of self-discovery and personal growth is on-going, and I am constantly striving to deepen my understanding of myself and how I relate to others and the world around me. Knowing and accepting myself has led me to design a life that is in alignment with my talents, personality, values and interests.
In terms of CAREER GUIDANCE, I have first-hand experience of the feelings of overwhelm when trying to choose a career path in high school when you have no idea what is out there, as well as the distress of making the wrong decision and feeling like you are on the wrong path.
This business has been created in order to help individuals and organisations overcome these problems.
Psychometric Assessments and Coaching are the keys that I use to unlock potential.
The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.
