'Manning up' towards less toxic masculinity
During Women's Month when so much attention is on the high levels of violence against women in South Africa, the focus should also be on the mitigating role that education can play. 15 Aug 2022 Read more

You(th) can - show up, then start up!
June in South Africa is Youth Month! It is a poignant reminder of the gallant youth of 1976 who in their quest for a decent education, courageously challenged the might of the South African security forces and one can argue, they also played a seminal role in the march towards democracy. However, the youth dividend doesn't end here. Think of the energy behind the 'fees must fall' campaign, the 'decolonisation of education' movement and further afield, efforts by Malala Yousefzai who in her drive for girls' education in Pakistan took a bullet. Also, Greta Thundberg, the Swedish teen, mobilised thousands of young people and challenged world leaders to bring qualitative changes to environmentally disastrous policies. 29 Jun 2022 Read more

'Edumocracy': Education by the people, for the people, to the people!
In his book, Beyond the Limits to Growth (2014), author Hiroshi Komiyama writes about the pursuit of a 'platinum society' - a society that aims to improve the lives of people through innovation, through coordination with industry, government, and academia. It was such a society that beckoned at the new dawn of democracy in 1994 when the country transitioned into a new political dispensation with a new Constitution and Bill of Rights, new anthem and a new international identity. 6 Jun 2022 Read more

Adaptability Intelligence (AQ) through LifeLong Learning!
How life has changed! Just four years ago hardly anyone knew of Covid-19. Little did we realise that the coronavirus, one of the great disruptors of modern times (Leadership, May 2020) will redefine how we work, live and relate to each other. Remote working, masking, and social distancing was suddenly foisted on us and will probably be the way we live well into the future. 13 May 2022 Read more

Purpose-lived - Elixir to a meaningful life!
What is the value of one's heart beat? What is the meaning of life? Do I matter? These are existential questions that people increasingly reflect on in light of the Covid pandemic and the rising number of existential threats facing humanity. Placing a value on life is a poignant ontological question, nearly impossible to answer, yet profound enough to drive many a passion. 29 Mar 2022 Read more

Corporate conduct: The need for positive behavioural attributes
Many South African businesses are trapped in a low growth cycle. Much of this stems from problems that lie in the macro socio-economic and political spheres in which businesses find themselves. However, what is becoming increasingly clear is that the organisational challenges of corruption, unethical conduct or poor productivity, are directly related to employee behaviour. It is not surprising, therefore, that many companies are placing high emphasis on behavioural attributes at recruitment interviews. These are then linked to desired workplace outcomes and levels of productivity. 21 Jan 2022 Read more

Employability: Shift the paradigm; do the work; change the destiny
Colin Coleman, former CEO of Goldman Sachs and Senior Fellow at Yale University, recently wrote an article 'SA doesn't have a debt problem. It has a growth problem - and a solution.' (Sunday Times, Insight, 3 Oct 2021). This sparked much needed debate about economic austerity and growth. Coleman underscores the need to refocus away from our debilitating debt and more towards opportunities for growth. Some of the examples he uses are to capitalise on the recent commodity boom that had given the JSE a healthy boost, as well as to leverage value from covid and other financial grants to the unemployed. These can be recycled into the economy to stimulate growth through social spending. 9 Nov 2021 Read more

Unlocking South Africa's youth 'dividend'!
"The technology of tomorrow requires not millions of lightly lettered (wo)men, ready to work in unison at endlessly repetitious jobs, it requires not (wo)men who take orders in unblinking fashion, but (wo)men who can make critical judgments, who can weave their way through novel environments, who are quick to spot new relationships in the rapidly changing reality." - Alvin Toffler, Future Shock, 1970

'Powering off' the Eskom grid: Suggestions for energy self-sufficiency
Load shedding, load reduction, and power outages reflect the 'heart of darkness' of a government that has plunged South Africa into a deep economic and social mess through systemic dysfunction and failure to govern. 14 Jun 2021 Read more

#BudgetSpeech2021: Converting hope to opportunity
"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness." - Archbishop Emeritus, Desmond Tutu. It was, therefore, unfortunate that the minister of finance, Tito Mboweni, would premise his recent Budget Speech 2021 with 'hope' and, days later, South Africa was hit with a spate of power failures - which, through its destructive impact on the economy, is the anathema of 'hope'! 30 Mar 2021 Read more

When passion drives purpose, the result is success!
Eighty-eight days after lockdown, TSIBA Business School students on 22 June 2020, sat for their first online examinations! This remarkable achievement, in contrast to many institutions still struggling with data and learning devices, resulted from many robust discussions, endless 'muting' and 'unmuting' online meetings, navigating complex issues of data, learning devices and selecting appropriate epistemology. All this was underpinned by passionate and committed teaching and academic support staff determined to deliver the academic programme and turn what was potentially a winter of despair, into a season of hope! 2 Jul 2020 Read more
