In a Nutshell

NeuroLab is about developing You and your capacity for Mental Wealth. As an individual, team or organisation, we help you understand who you  and those around you are. For many, the journey of understanding is fraught with fear and indignation, but ultimately worth it. As a registered psychologist, consultations conform to the ethical prerequisites specified by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).

Detail about the Nutshell

NeuroLab has partnered with international test developers Psytech International and Insight Learning to deliver world class interventions with South African relevance, normed for the South African market. NeuroLab is committed to delivering a service that empowers your team and realises increased productivity, competence and engagement in the leadership space. Our solutions are based on scientific assessments that are both valid and reliable. These interventions are co-created and as a result are relevant to the individual, team or organisation we work with.

At NeuroLab we strive for the simplicity found at the far end of complexity. We utilise psychometric assessments that are valid and reliable. These are complex in their ability to assess and analyse but yet they deliver simple reports that allow the recipient to work through structured processes to gain knowledge and build competence in the area of human behaviour. The process of assessment and feedback is facilitated by a registered psychologist with 30 years of first-hand business experience, delivering relevant feedback from a battery of individualised reports.

Our interventions assure relevant solutions that have the rigour of theoretical research and pragmatic application.

The return of investment (ROI) when motivating leaders mitigates staff turnover and helps develop an agile and effective leadership team critical to any business. Soft skills play out on the bottom line with almost every interaction, both internally and externally. An engaged workforce delivers more and produces more, creating an environment which is healthy and happy. Added to this, developing your people serves to create an atmosphere of mastery in the workplace, an essential construct of motivation. The purpose of mastery plays out on multiple levels relating to personal, team and organisational significance. Individualised “People and Leadership Development” in the workplace has never been a nice to have, it is essential in an ever changing and dynamic world. This concept has merely come of age and has manifest as coaching.

A significant component of behaviour change is the maintenance phase. With any behavioural intervention, be it positive reinforcement or remedial, the maintenance of behavioural change should be ongoing. This allows reinforcement and processing to crystallise as unconscious competence. Facilitating the change process is only a part of the coaching programme. The area of coaching that proves to be most valuable to organisations in the long term, is the maintenance phase.
