Ubuntu is an old African concept, a way of life that was like a religion in African societies - long before the days of colonisation. Ubuntu means to sacrifice for others selflessly, caring and protecting your fellow human beings.

 Applying ubuntu in the workplace is not always understood. Ubuntu: Shaping the current workplace with (African) wisdom looks at how we can improve workplaces by using the old values and wisdom of our forebears.

 Msila illustrates how leaders and managers can use the wisdom of this ancient African philosophy to create more humane and productive workplaces.

 In Ubuntu: Shaping the current workplace with (African) wisdom Professor Vuyisile Msila presents the five P’s of ubuntu which contain the elements to enable organisations to thrive. An ubuntu-inspired workplace focuses on:

- Dependability 
- Team work 
- Interconnectedness 
- Caring 
- Being led by a collective vision
- Performance 
- Loyalty 
- Openness 
- Honesty 
- Transformational leadership
