The Social Leader: Redefining Leadership for a Complex, Social Age
The Social Leader structures a new approach to leadership and provides tools for leaders to understand themselves in this new era of connectedness and community. We describe and explain the five new imperatives of leadership, the Tenets of Social Leadership, illustrating ways for leaders and would-be leaders to reimagine their personal narratives and their leadership capabilities.

Managing in Four Worlds
My first book with Ronnie was the result of extraordinary collaborative work between us. The book is more than a decade old, yet the idea of Four Worlds is hugely relevant, and we still have enthusiastic readers writing to us. The idea is simple: the four directions of the earth are more than just geographical locations: they provide us with a dynamic framework for transforming both ourselves and our organizations.

From Management Education to Civic Reconstruction – The Emerging Ecology of Organizations
This book provides an analysis of the manner in which a combination of diverse, culturally-based approaches are implicitly and explicitly built into the development of a business or organization. We have addressed key issues at the forefront of developmental management and demonstrated methods whereby principles of ecology can be applied to different stages of organizational development at both the local and global levels.

Personal Growth African Style
Personal Growth takes an approach to leadership which offers a path to personal development, dealing with leadership as a process of self-discovery and a journey to the centre of oneself and one’s origins. It inspires leadership through the individual’s reclaiming his or her wholeness as a human being, as an African, as a global citizen. It seeks to regenerate and ignite the less tangible aspects of leadership.
What I do
I work globally to build leadership awareness and the ability to lead organizations in complexity.
I deliver leadership programs and workshops around the world for audiences from private and public sectors, governments, and international and civic organizations.
As a CEO and executive advisor, I help leaders make deep shifts in the way they think and respond, and in the way they communicate, act and behave.
