Let Africa Lead - African Transformational Leadership For 21st Century Business
Let Africa Lead aims to stimulate the growing discussion around the role of business leadership in the rejuvenation of Africa. It also prompts organisational heads everywhere to consider leadership based on empathy for fellow human beings.
Let Africa Lead… Leading Afro-optimist, Dr. Reuel Khoza, argues that the locus of control for Africa's future is within the continent itself and that the African renaissance will be driven by leadership that in the African spirit of Ubuntu, will keep people in authority ever mindful of their role of servers rather than commanders. The server leader leads by the tenets of consultation, persuasion, accommodation and cohabitation and shuns coercion and domination. These principles are deeply imbedded in African humanism and are part of the old traditions of tribes and regions. African humanism, he argues, promotes social cohesion through its search for sufﬁcient consensus that leads to a process of social arbitrage in the settling of differences. This leadership paradigm is practical and compassionate and it calls for the development of leaders who can deliver rather than merely promise and who demonstrate great personal integrity, accompanied by expertise and organizational ability.
