Three Hours of Leadership Inspiration & Development – every Monday – FREE

Leadership Platform is an organisation with a passion for transformation towards an EMPOWERED society – empowered individuals; empowered teams; empowered organisations!

To help achieve this EMPOWERED society we facilitate a weekly three hour slot on an “EMPOWERED” Cliffcentral station that goes where the internet goes, called “Leadership Transformation Platform”, which at this stage takes the form of a Leadership Master Class, a Business Master Class – also directed at SME’s – and a Youth Leadership Platform – empowering our youth. These conversations transform into content on podcasts that are promoted aggressively via our partners and social media structures.

Every Monday, from anywhere in the world, you can join us via your phone, laptop or other device. What we do will add incalculable value to what you are already doing to develop as leaders – personally and organizationally. Just visit 12:00 to 15:00 (GMT +2) for all things leadership and listen via internet. And if you miss it, simply download the relevant podcasts.

Leadership Transformation Platform every Monday 12-3pm (GMT+2):

12:00 – 13:00: Leadership Master Class

From 12-12:30: Adriaan Groenewald (@AdriaanG_LP) and his father Louis Groenewald (@WiseOneZA), discuss and debate universal leadership principles that EMPOWER leaders. We often ask top leaders to define what Authentic Leadership means to them.  Listen here for an example of a previous show.

From 12:30 – 13:00: An EMPOWERING conversation with a top leader. We zoom in on a leader, delving into their background, leadership successes, failures and experiences.  This makes for fascinating authentic listening and learning.  Listen here for an example of a previous Leader interview show.

13:00 – 14:30: Business Master Class

From 13:00 to 13:30: An EMPOWERING Business Skills Conversation with an expert panel consisting of someone from University Stellenbosch Executive Education and Richard Angus CEO The Finance Team. We discuss various themes relevant to business and SME’s.  Listen here to one of our recent conversations.

From 13:30 – 14:00: We interview an EMPOWERED SME Owner that started and has been leading their small business for a while, successfully. It is a general conversation in which we also draw a link with the business skills conversation. We believe anyone in any place can become an EMPOWERED individual. However, someone that took the risk to start their own venture shows clear signs of becoming an EMPOWERED individual – something our society needs desperately.  Listen here to one of our recent conversations.

14:00 – 15:00: Youth Leadership Platform (YLP)

Our youth need a voice. Our youth need to communicate their frustrations, views, proposed solutions and aspirations to current leaders. And, current leadership must be able to engage youth productively. We place youth leaders, ordinary youth with potential and stand out individuals on this platform to achieve the above. We are also taking this spirit into communities where we will identify the future leaders of our society. We want the youth to become Leadership Activists – Advocating Authentic Leaders while actively eradicating our society of toxic leaders and behaviour.

International and national opinion leaders add further value  as they join the show telephonically and share leadership essences with our listeners.

And remember if you can’t listen live, the podcasts are available for download and can be used for training and development, driving learning and discussion in your organization, SME, business or school.
