1.       SA Team Grows

We are very happy to welcome Lana van Staden to the SA Product Range Team.  Lana, a Psychometrist in Independent Practice, brings enthusiasm, additional capacity, and a strong commitment to the vision of bringing South African options to our clients’ toolboxes.  Welcome Lana! 2.       TriMaths Translations TriMaths is now available in English, Zulu, Afrikaans, Tswana and Portuguese! JvR received requests from clients to translate some of our South African products.  We translated aspects of the TriMaths into Zulu, and Tswana.  The SOM(P) was already available in Tswana and now the BM(P) is available in Tswana too.  Requests from abroad prompted us to translate the Trimaths into Portuguese.  To make sense of all these different elements, please consult the summary table below:

VAT).  Please contact Andrea (andrea@jvrafrica.co.za) for more information or to place an order. In addition, Prof. Maree recently visited the University of Southern Queensland in Australia to share his expertise on career counselling.  Read the article posted on USQ’s website. 4.       Readucate DVD We all take our literacy for granted.  Watch this short video to be reminded of the magic and importance of literacy.  Readucate is an important programme to combat illiteracy in South Africa! 5.       LBI-2 The Leadership Behaviour Inventory (LBI-2) is a 360 degree leadership tool that gets leaders to assess themselves and then invites their superior(s), peers and followers to rate them as well.  The Leadership Report and associated Leadership Development Guide are insightful and often eye-opening.  NEW - Please note that a minimum of 1 ‘self’, 1 superior, 3 peer and 3 follower ratings are needed to generate a report.
