Founders of Dependable Strengths Articulation Process™
Drs. Bernard and Jean Haldane brought Dependable Strengths to South Africa.
The late Dr. Bernard Haldane was a leading authority on career success and job seeking for nearly 50 years. He founded Haldane & Associates, which provides career and job search services worldwide. Dr. Haldane taught his methods to hundreds of business professionals and educators throughout North America and Europe, and most importantly, for us in South Africa.
