Leading in turbulent times

I have noticed that the financial crisis has undermined good practices. Command-and-control leaders are back in fashion and companies appear to be condoning it.

The unique, multi-cultural demographic composition of the South African population, commonly referred to as the Rainbow Nation in political circles, has presented numerous pressing contemporary management and leadership challenges.

Kofi Annan, the general secretary of the United Nations, a while back, declared that the greatest challenge to face Africa is one of leadership. The greatest crisis in Africa is not poverty, disease or corruption - but one of leadership. We would like to propose that this is true not only in Africa but also of the world. The answer lies in preparing tomorrow's leaders today. How do we do this in an increasingly “corrupt world”?

Leadership is the cornerstone of success or effectiveness any group or organisation. The importance of leadership need not be debated. Just as strategy trumps good tactics and application, leadership trumps good products and services. The questions are therefore not “why leadership” questions but “how leadership” questions.

 In today's world we need leadership. We need men and woman of honor, of character.

We need people of all ages from all backgrounds to take advantage of the myriad of opportunities that exist to make a difference.
