The Meaning Behind
Virtuous Coaching

a word used to describe Heroes of Strength

VIRTUOUS, as derived from its ancient roots, mean…

strength, efficiency, wealth, riches,
a great army, ability, excellence,
a force, power, substance,
resources, virtue, valour, ability,
a host, mighty, valiant and worthy.

Symbolic Meanings of our logo


The crown represents noble character – worthy, generous, upright, honourable, virtuous.


The ruby serves as a reminder that a person of virtue is worth far more than rubies. Wisdom is more precious than jewels, and nothing anyone might desire can compare with wisdom.


Together the crown and the ruby form a pomegranate. The pomegranate, which mainly consists of seed, speaks of the abundance of talent we collectively as individuals possess.

Let’s develop – and strengthen – your innate talents.

Words of Praise

I fit in because people value my strengths.

Karin van der Walt

I learned a lot about myself and those I work with.

Mirieck Griessel

Because of this workshop I have learned to look for strengths in other people and use it to connect better with them. It is a work in progress though.

Yolandi Craucamp

I know myself better, I understand my colleagues much better and when we differ with regards to opinions or reactions, I first think of individual strengths and which one could be at work causing the difference. I now look at people differently by quickly scanning through their Top 5 strengths then I say to myself “….OK…THAT IS WHY…..”

Iris Kajokoto

The most usable thing I gained was learning about other people’s strengths.

Khutsi Masemola

I understand my colleagues better and it opened up another world of communication between people. Understanding peoples different reactions to certain situations, makes for a successful team. I’m so thankful to PEPPS for investing in me.

Marlene Grimbeeck

I know my strengths and talents and the importance of working as team.

Granny M

I learned that my talents work with my profession and that I can identify them to improve the way I communicate and work closely with my colleagues.

Jessica Baber

I really enjoyed “The power of building complimentary partnerships” activity. I was happy and motivated.

Virginia Manamela
