Covid-19 Mental health support

  • The current COVID-19 pandemic is likely to result in mental health issues. Most people are resilient and over time will cope with these stressful and challenging experiences. Some employees, however, will develop anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) . The response to ongoing high stress should aim to support coping, foster resilience, reduce burnout and reduce the risk of developing mental health difficulties.
    Video and telephone counselling available.

At Talent 4.0, we use valid and reliable assessments, which are classified and approved by the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
Psychometric tests are generally used to measure personality traits or personal characteristics about a person including aspects such as styles or modes of working, ability to think conceptually, decision-making styles and stress levels. In the employment context, psychometric tests have frequently been used to help provide additional information about persons for purposes of employment, promotions, personal development etc.

In South Africa, Section 8 of the Employment Equity Act 55 of 1998 (“EEA”) sets out the requirements for psychological testing, which include psychometric tests. Section 8 states that:

  • Psychological testing and other similar assessments of an employee are prohibited unless the test or assessment being used-
  1. Has been scientifically shown to be valid and reliable;
  2. Can be applied fairly to all employees;
  3. Is not biased against any employee or group; and
  4. Has been certified by the Health Professions Council of South Africa established by section 2 of the Health Professions Act, 1974 (Act 56 of 1974), or any other body which may be authorised by law to certify those tests or assessments.

Change management
Change management is defined as the methods and manners in which a company describes and implements change within both its internal and external processes. Developing a structured approach to organisational change is critical to help ensure a beneficial transition while mitigating disruption at the individual, team and organizational level.

Organisational design – Talent 4.0 can gain a deep insight into your organization’s current state of performance, strength and weaknesses by implementing a diagnostic assessment.
Getting to the root causes of organizational issues, we will help you enhance your organizations structure, strategy and through your leadership team, create a clear strategic mandate by designing criteria that your organization needs to meet, and achieve, its business goals.

Performance management – Performance management is a strategic approach to creating and sustaining improved performance in employees, leading to an increase in the effectiveness of companies.

  • Develop clear role definitions, expectations and goals
  • Increase employee engagement
  • Develop managerial leadership and coaching skills
  • Boost productivity through improved performance
  • Develop a performance reward program that incentivizes accomplishment

Leadership development – Leadership is a behaviour, not a position. Leadership is inspiring people to live the vision, mission and values of the organization. Once an organization is committed to the goal of leadership development, numerous tools and techniques are available to accomplish that goal; however, the process may be handled differently depending on the size and type of the organization.

Assessment instruments-Used in developing candidates for leadership and identifying leadership traits.

Multirater (360-degree) feedback

  • Multirater feedback—also known as 360-degree feedback—involves measurement of a person’s leadership performance and abilities from the perspective of relevant viewpoints, including self, subordinates, supervisors and possibly external stakeholders.

Coaching

  • Executive coaching is often employed in conjunction with assessment instruments. The coaching process can help individuals understand their assessment data and apply it to real-life situations.

Mentoring

  • Mentoring is a form of coaching in which a more senior person participates actively in the professional development of a junior person, usually within the same organization. Mentoring may be done informally, as is usually the case, but it can also be formalized.

Leader-to-leader development

  • Pairing senior executives with leaders who are new to their role or an organization allows for mentoring that can result in benefits such as knowledge transfer, confidence building and open collaboration

Emotional intelligence development

  • Emotional intelligence describes the ability of an individual to be sensitive and understanding to the emotions of others, as well as to manage his or her own emotions and impulses.

Coaching
Coaching is the process of equipping people with the tools, knowledge, and opportunities they need to fully develop themselves to be effective in their commitment to themselves, the company, and their work.

What is BrainWorking® Recursive Therapy
BrainWorking® Recursive Therapy is an innovative new concept of psychotherapy, completely unlike anything that has gone before it. It presents an entirely new view of the subconscious mind – one that is extremely ‘user friendly’ and easy for the client to understand – as well as an elegant way of providing psychotherapy that gets easily beneath the Conscious Critical Faculty.

This therapy is largely content-free, using the client’s own thought processes to affect a release from the symptomatic pattern – and there is a strict protocol which ensures maximum effectiveness and complete safety.

BWRT® has been designed to remove emotive responses from memories that are deeply troubling and create new, adaptive neural pathways that do not have the old undesirable emotional responses attached to it.

The therapy extends the neural pathways so that the client/patient’s brain knows the new patterns to use in future. Every new experience creates a new template. In fact, immediately the therapy is finished, the client can no longer feel any negative response to the usual trigger for their presenting symptom, no matter how hard they try to ‘fire it up’.

Conditions treatable with BWRT®:

  • Commitment Anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Panic attacks
  • Generalised anxiety disorder
  • Exam anxiety
  • Social Phobia
  • Success Inhibition
  • Fear of failure
  • All types of Performance Anxiety
  • Self-Worth/Self-Confidence Issues
  • Fear of Authority
  • Relationship Issues
  • Grief
  • PTSD

Advantages of BWRT
It is a quick process:
Gone are the days of months and months of therapy. You may be surprised as to how quickly the very positive feelings BWRT will bring about. It does not matter where the problem is coming from, how serious it is or for how long you are experiencing this problem, the principle stays the same – all we need to do, is to change your neurology. All of this can happen within a session or two, depending on the problem.

It is a private process:
You will be able to address any problem you have, without the need to reveal them. You will not be asked about your childhood, family, sex life, relationships, your past or anything else you would rather keep private unless you want to talk about it. The only thing your therapist needs to know is what you want to be able to do or be able to stop doing.

It is non-intrusive:
The work is done at a conscious level, so you will be completely aware of the process all the time. We also don’t go into the detail of the problem so you may not become re-traumatized.

It focuses on the outcome:
BWRT® is not really interested in the origin of the problem but is focused on the outcome – where you want to be.

It does not matter how severe it was or how long ago it happened:
It does not matter how traumatic an incident was or how long you are suffering from your symptoms. The brain does not do chronology. We are focusing on the effect it has on you in the here and now. It also does not concern itself about how severe an incident was of how severe your depression, anxiety or whatever symptoms you may present. BWRT works with the interpretation of the problem in the here and now. The methodology stays the same.

The results are lasting:
Once a new neural pathway is established, it cannot return to the old negative neural pathways.

What happens during a BWRT® session?
Initially, the principles behind BWRT® will be explained in more detail. Your brain is like a computer. (By the way, all prototypes of computers are designed after the human brain). The software your brain is using is your memories. These memories cause problems. We are literally going to freeze the old software and install new, positive software.

You will then be guided through the process with your eyes closed and in a completely alert state, until you have reached your desired state. Although you are fully aware of what is going on, you may not really understand what your therapist is doing. Within 15-20 minutes during the process you will experience a fast, substantial and permanent relief of your symptoms.

In a session, you will be guided to use your own thoughts – without your therapist even knowing what those thoughts are. The process is completely logical, practical and down-to-earth. All it needs to be successful is for you to want to make positive changes in your life.

This is done in a special way to create a totally natural change that comes from within you rather than from suggestions made by your therapist.

You will not even realise the complex theory of neuroscience behind BWRT®, which will be discussed in the next section.
