A brand new initiative targeting NGO's, business people and entrepreneurs that are invested in tackling some of South Africa's big social issues is being offered on Mandela Day this year.
The Mandela Day Leadership Development Project comes from a partnership between Lead SA, the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) and UCT's Graduate School of Business. It is providing 67 minutes of one-on-one coaching with an expert to selected participants, discussing issues they are met with and providing some level of mentorship in leadership.
GIBS' Head of Personal and Applied Learning, Alison Reid says they are looking to provide an advisory service and a thinking partnership which will be of assistance from a leadership perspective:
We see this initiative as putting heads together, quite literally - we're hoping to help NGOs who are working on some very critical social areas of challenge like literacy, healthcare, education, etcetera; making a real difference.
This is about packaging the organisation's challenges and helping them to work more efficiently, using coaching which is a thinking partnership and a process of helping them to think through those challenges, to help them lead better.
