Our Story

Evolving Excellence in Talent and Leadership Development to Human Resources Consulting and Management Consulting

Initial Focus on Psychometric Assessments and Talent Management: Founded by Elna Esterhuizen, our firm quickly established itself as a trusted partner in identifying and nurturing talent within organisations. Since its inception in 2007, Esterhuizen Coaching & Consulting (ECCSA) has specialised in psychometric assessments and talent management. Over time, we expanded our expertise to encompass Executive Coaching, Team Coaching, and Resilience Training, marking our evolution into a comprehensive provider of leadership and organisational development solutions. 

Expansion into Executive and Team Coaching: As our expertise grew, we expanded our services to include executive coaching and team coaching. This strategic addition allowed us to empower leaders and teams with enhanced decision-making, leadership, and collaborative skills, furthering organisational success.

Integrating Organisational Development: Recognising the need for holistic organisational health, we incorporated organisational development into our services. This move enabled us to offer comprehensive change management and consulting, addressing broader aspects of organisational dynamics and efficiency.

Leadership Development and Business Transformation: The addition of Daniel Esterhuizen in 2016 marked a new era of management consulting, leadership development and business transformation. Our unique blend of psychological insight and engineering precision guides organisations through transformative changes, developing resilient and effective leaders.

Strategic Consulting and Enneagram Expertise: With our formalisation as a private company in 2018, we deepened our commitment to strategic consulting. Both Elna and Daniel’s training in the Enneagram has further enhanced our ability to provide tailored coaching solutions, understanding and addressing the unique dynamics of individuals and teams.

Our commitment: Looking ahead, Esterhuizen Coaching & Consulting (ECCSA) is dedicated to leading in psychometric assessments, talent management, executive coaching, team building, organisational development, leadership development, business transformation, career coaching, and strategic consulting. Our journey, enriched by Enneagram insights, underscores our commitment to fostering transformative growth through strategic and psychological expertise.
