Human capital is a collection of resources—all the knowledge, talents, skills, abilities, experience, intelligence, training, judgment, and wisdom possessed by individuals and collectively by individuals in an organization or population. We believe that the greatest opportunity for organizations to differentiate themselves from their competitors is through their people and harnessing the intrinsic potential that their people have.
Our role is to discover and unlock this potential within your people.

Capacity development, is a conceptual approach to social or personal development that focuses on understanding the obstacles that inhibit people and organizations from realizing their development goals while enhancing the abilities that will allow them to achieve measurable and sustainable results.
Living The Values
Our “Living the Values” process aims to take an organization’s values ‘off the wall’ so to speak and into the daily lives of employees. When people work in an organization whose culture aligns with their personal values, they feel liberated and purpose driven. They are able to bring their full selves to work. They not only bring their energy, creativity, and enthusiasm, they also bring their commitment to the well‐being of their associates and the success of the organization. Unleashing this energy is paramount to liberating the corporate soul.
African fig has linked with some phenomenal experiences to bring you a truly unique teambuilding experience. Our frustration with traditional teambuilding and motivation sessions is that while everyone has a lot of fun, there is often no real change or shift in our lives and teams when we get back to the workplace. Through various teams experiences we have developed a facilitated experience that encourages personal and corporate growth. Our two primary experiences are the Karkloof Canopy Tour (Zip-line adventure activity) and the iMfolozi Wilderness walking safari, however depending our your aims and objectives we can develop a specific experience to meeting your desired outcomes.
Personal Development Assessment (PDA)
PDA is a behavioral assessment that through a simple, precise and scientific methodology allows us to discover and analyze peoples’ behavioral profiles. It also allows us to evaluate the behavioral and competency requirements of a job thereby ensuring you select and develop the right people into the right positions.
Anonymous Assessments & Professionalism In The Work Place
(Mistry Shopper/ Phantom Guests Experience)
Using a variety of techniques including hidden cameras we aim to capture the true experience that your clients or guest receive while interacting with your business. This is not to “catch’ people out but rather to see (discover) what’s really going on and then to develop a training program to improve where necessary. The opportunity for personal growth when people see how they communicate and interact with clients is massive. It must be noted that anything captured cannot be used for disciplinary action against any employee but only for training purposes.
What is social capital?
It is hard to define and no one definition would suit everyone. For simplicity it is the links, shared values and understanding in societies that enable groups of individuals to trust each other and work together. This form the bases of all economic and social development and the principles that we use in our social consulting.
