    Adult Assessments
    For adults I offer my Adult Assessment Package, which uses psychometric assessments to help guide them either in the career field they’re already in or towards a new career field altogether.

    For this I use a personality and values assessment. The assessments give a good idea of unique strengths and the characteristics related to job satisfaction for that specific person. They can help identify your managerial style and the best role you can play within an organization.

    The assessments are completed during a 45 minute consultation and feedback is then done either in person in a separate 30 minute consultation or via an emailed report, at the client’s choosing. The cost is R1250.
