The colloquium will address the concept of the innocent company which is based on the argument that the company is an incapacitated, inanimate person which has no heart, mind, soul or conscience. You will learn that the foundation of an effective corporate leader is intellectual honesty. This is the application of setting aside present needs and past experiences while leaving aside the corporate sins of fear, greed, pride, arrogance and sloth.
You will understand that that no business model of a company can be said to be sustainable without dealing with the risks of climate change and species extinction.The difference between transformational and transactional leadership will be discussed. Transactional leadership has been colloquially described as “keeping the ship afloat.”
You will learn that there are many reasons which can be illustrated by lack of collaboration; lack of commitment to learn; arrogance; lack of a clear strategy; lack of dedication to employees; failure to adapt; betraying trust; a dearth of passion, compassion and dispassion as well as a lack of prioritization.
The audience will get an opportunity to direct questions to the speakers and as a result attendees will get their most pressing questions answered. After the presentations there will be a panel discussion from some of the leaders of business in South Africa about the input on these aspects and challenges in regard to their own businesses
