In this episode, James Ashton takes us on an epic journey, so beautifully narrated that it will have you transported to faraway places and spaces. He shares his very personal story of starting Omnicor with his wife Cathy Farlam, and how they built a business with passion and purpose at a time in South Africa’s history that demanded sensitivity and vision.
This month: Dr Hilton Rudnick is in the studio with Colin Browne, and we discuss the thorny issue of organisational culture.
Colin has a very important message about leadership and their impact on the organisational culture and climate. His metaphor of the happy sandpit immediately sets the tone for the conversation.
Colin has a unique perspective as a journalist, researcher and business owner, and has dealt with the hard realities of leadership himself. What are the factors that will get your team excited to come to work and which potentially chase them away?
This episode is a must-listen for new leaders and those struggling with this complex issue, with practical steps to improve your current work climate.
This month: Professor Jansen is known for his strong views on transformation, peaceful reconciliation and unity, which he has pursued in earnest at UFS. Jansen stepped down as UFS Rector and Vice-Chancellor to become a Fellow at the Centre for Advanced Studies in the Behavioural Sciences at Stanford University in the US.
In recognition of his contribution to education Prof Jansen has received honorary doctorates in education from the United Kingdom and the USA, including one from the University of Edinburgh. Prof Jansen has published several books, is a columnist in leading newspapers in the country and has a large social media following.
Our time was short but we managed to touch on some really interesting issues – for example, why did Prof leave SA and is he coming back? How do we address racism in SA amongst our friends and community? What is a Tarzan Leader and how do we bring some heart back to our leadership decisions?
