About Judy


I’m Judy Janse van Rensburg, the founder of Mind Strategies and Irock Coaching.

I’ve been in the assessment and personal development industry for over 20 years, working with corporate clients to select new recruits, bursary students, evaluating management and leadership potential for both corporate and government clients. I love working with leaders around EQ and how it impacts them personally and professionally.

I studied psychology at Stellenbosch (BSc. Hons Psychology) and University of Potchefstroom (MA Industrial Psychology) and registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa as Psychometrist: Independent Practice. This means that I specialise in assessment and do not do any therapy.

Because I believe we never stop growing, I further qualified as a Coach through the University of Stellenbosch Business School.

All the details are over on my Linkedin Profile if you want to have a look there.

I’ve assessed a large number of students on behalf of various organisations¬† as well as individuals at Senior Management and Executive levels and have realised over the years, that making the right career decision early on in your career, is absolutely vital.

And it is never to late to make a career change or reinvent yourself. You can find out more about reinventing here : www.irockcoaching.co.za

Early on in my career I was fortunate to work for a large telecoms company and engage with leaders at all levels in a variety of Human Resource situations as an HR Generalist from implementing new Performance Management systems, to Recruiting for Call Centres, engineering and financial positions, and dealing with selected wellness aspects.

Later on in my career I became an Associate Assessor with Deloitte for almost 11 years and then cultivated a number of associations with other consultancies like Resolve Consulting, Ernst And Young, and the major psychometric test suppliers like JVR Africa and TTS.

I believe the key to success starts with knowing yourself and that we need to continue to check in at various stages of our lives to understand who we are and what we are becoming. Assessment tools provide a gateway to access that information in a fast and reliable manner.

What you may not know is that I’ve personally completed close to 90% of the assessments and solutions I offer.
