Executive Book Club

The rehumanization of leadership has become one of the most pressing issues of our times. This book offers an antidote to the linear and fragmented leadership models that emerged out of the industrial mind-set. Rather than pay lip-service to values, which has been the 20th century approach to addressing anything higher than strategy, we demonstrate that it is purpose that must be discovered. The authors make a compelling case for rehumanizing leadership and provide you the simple tools you need to lead your organization in the 21st century

Influencer by Joseph Grenny, reviewed by Dr Riaan steenberg 

Whether you're a CEO, a parent, or merely a person who wants to make a difference, you probably wish you had more influence with the people in your life. But most of us stop trying to make change happen because we believe it is too difficult, if not impossible. We learn to cope rather than learning to influence. 

 

 

Betting on a Darkie - Mteto Nyati 

'If you want to take the system down, provide a better alternative at least. At heart, I’m an engineer. I want to encourage people to fix things, not to raise false hopes.'

Mteto Nyati knew years ago as a schoolboy in Mthatha, working behind the counter at his mother’s trading store, that he wanted to fix and build things. After completing his studies in Mechanical Engineering at Natal University, he turned down a Rhodes scholarship and headed for Johannesburg to take up a position at Afrox. He was the only black engineer and the sole advice he received from his superiors was ‘don’t mess up’. He didn’t. Today Nyati is one of South Africa’s top CEOs, having steered Microsoft South Africa and MTN South Africa out of troubled times. He is currently guiding the transition of Altron from a family business, started at the height of apartheid, into a high-performing international IT company with a social conscience.
