About Prerna Advisory Prerna Advisory is a Level 1 Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) company, offering solutions within coaching, consulting and capital introduction. Our belief is that companies and individuals are ecosystems – resilient, synergistic and efficient in working towards a common outcome. The outcome, is, mostly, aimed to be optimal for people, planet and profit. However, in many instances, through either internal or external forces, this optimal balance becomes de-stabilised. The results can range from constant change/flux to succumbing to some form of defeat. Prerna Advisory aims to: • Enable individuals and teams to give their best, through coaching and talent management: Emotional intelligence and resilience, as individuals and within teams, is the cornerstone to navigating and harnessing an effective ecosystem. If organisations are unable to increase awareness and regulate management of itself and its people, then inconsistencies, divisions and disruptions occur that deviate from attaining the mission. • Neuroscience-based assessment and coaching, where leaders, managers and teams can feel equipped to deal with all challenges and opportunities that they face. We also offer full scale talent management review, to identify areas for developments, gaps to be filled or where best practice that can be expanded on. • Sales coaching for client-facing individuals and teams, to ensure business development truly builds relational capital with clients.
