We risk our society’s future by betting on a system that produces dysfunctional leaders

"Whatever system we design, it needs to take seriously this idea that its processes should produce the desire and motivation to search for the endless possibilities that can emerge from our collective excellences; where the desire to improve, and a communal spirit, are continually reinforced through the ongoing process of acting and working together to build a better life" (Daily Maverick, 22 July 2021)

Visualising the future

"Every moment is a contestation between our memories of the past, current perceptions and assumptions of the future. Henri Bergson, the renowned process philosopher, will remind us that it is out of this contestation that novelty and creative evolution occurs.

So, envisioning is not a brand-new idea for individuals and organisations. Have we however unraveled our assumptions about how this ongoing present becomes the future?

How leaders adapt and respond in such times can make or break an organisation or a country" (Daily Maverick, 19 November 2020)
