Recognising Failing Leadership   

Leadership is about mobilising stakeholders – converted into followers – to co-actualise shared, desired futures expressed as dreams (or visions), aimed at leaving behind lasting, worthy legacies. Leadership holds in their hands the fragile, precious hopes, fears, aspirations, and ideals of followers about the uncertain, unknown future, typing everyone together around a common destiny.

Universal Integration

One of the CEO’s we coached mentioned that he did not have, or has ever had a role model. His philosophy is that when he rubs shoulders with anyone, whether the cleaner, a child, a leader – he tries to learn from them or take something from them that he admires and then make it […]

A Profitable Leader

The leader determines performance levels by imposing believable expectation standards that are believed and valued by all. From a profitability perspective it is clear that massive resources are often invested unproductively by organisations in order to compensate for lack of cohesiveness and authority in attitude management; lack of common leadership language & believable (believed) leadership models; and […]

The Quantum Leap Syndrome

Throughout history humankind has made quantum leaps into the future. In many cases such leaps have changed history for the better. Many examples of such ‘leaps’ can be mentioned such as FW de Klerk’s decision to release Nelson Mandela from Robin Island, such as the invention of the incandescent light bulb, the Internet, such as […]

A Leadership & Digital Revolution – Leadership Catch-Up

This article follows on from what I wrote about the unfolding leadership revolution that is sweeping across the globe. How do we prepare leaders adequately for it? This is not an easy task as we have fallen behind and therefore have to somehow leapfrog current preparation techniques. We have to implement “Leadership Catch-Up”. What is […]

Is The ANC South Africa’s Best Option?

To all South Africans – black and white – supporting the ANC, as opposed to the DA or EFF, is perhaps the shortest route to a more successful South Africa…if only it was that simple though.
