UPCOMING CONFERENCES AND NEW RELEASES
HR DIRECTORS CONFERENCE 2019
11-14 MARCH 2019
VENUE: Cape Town International Convention Centre | CTICC
As technology evolves and the world of world changes, HR leaders have the power to shape the organisation! HR Directors are required to embrace disruption and drive transformation in unchartered territory, having to find new ways to manoeuvre and guide people through uncertainty. As an HR leader you have the opportunity to shape the direction of work and revolutionise and reinvent the way we work, influence, lead and do business. It’s time for a growth mindset and strategic approach that gets you and your department out in front of the change. The HR Director of today and in the future should be the right hand to the CEO. According to Harvard Business Review however, "Research by McKinsey and the Conference Board consistently finds that CEOs worldwide see human capital as a top challenge, and but yet they rank HR as only the eighth or ninth most important function in a company.”

ARTICLES FROM HUMAN CAPITAL REVIEW
Interactive Culture Change Model
*BEST SELLER* In my new book, A Journey of Diversity & Inclusion in South Africa which has just been published, I discuss the interactive culture change model. This is a 10-step model routed in direct and active engagement from leadership. This model relies on the critical interplay between the Head (the ‘knowing’ or intellectual buy-in), the Heart (the ‘being’ or emotional buy-in), and the Hands (the ‘doing’ or visible behaviour change). — Nene Molefi, Author, Lecturer, Diversity Collegium member and internationally Thought-leader in diversity and inclusion, values-driven leadership and transformation and author of A Journey of Diversity & Inclusion in SA
Restructure or Reconfigure?
Continuously changing markets dictate that companies have to reorganise. The advice that leaders receive, however, is just as fluctuating, as they constantly receive differing advice on when and how to reorganise. Some will say that the company requires a new structure, some will say that the current structure should be revisited, some may say that the benefits of reorganisation outweigh the costs, some will be more skeptical, some might say that the work can be accomplished before the conditions change again, while others will claim that it’s too risky. — Dr Mark Bussin, Chairperson, 21st Century, Author of Organisation Design for Uber Times
