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
Why Wisdom Can't Be Taught
In the pursuit of wisdom, executives may find themselves taking off their masks to become truly authentic and reflective leaders. The day after becoming the CEO of a company facing turbulent times, David had a dream. In it, while walking on a beach he discovered a bottle. On opening, a genie appeared offering him a wish in exchange for her freedom. Eschewing riches, fame or a long life, David opted for the one thing he knew he needed to help him guide his people in the best way possible. He chose the gift of wisdom. — Manfred Kets de Vries, INSEAD Distinguished Clinical Professor of Leadership Development & Organisational Change
