Core Competencies

Elsabe Manning’s business model was designed and aligned with our specific core competencies:

  1. Labour Law consulting and advisory services
  2. Labour Relations Solutions
  3. Human Resources Solutions
  4. Training and development
  5. Coaching and mentoring
  6. Situational analysis and engagement
  7. Professional HR and IR advisory services
  8. Strategy
  9. Team development: From designing teams to re-building dysfunctional teams.

These core competencies applied collectively or individually will identify and close the gap that exists between true and realised potential within any company.


Elsabe Manning’s coaching and training model is designed to facilitate positive change through meaningful cognitive paradigm shifts by identifying and changing limiting beliefs. The best way to change someone’s behaviour is through insight.  Insight happens once delegates buy into new information, ideas and different ways of thinking.  Once delegates believe the information they hear, and it makes sense to them, their behaviour will automatically begin to change.
