In this conversation Dr Claudelle and Priscillah Mabelane explore the factors that contribute to the challenges women find in leadership and how to break through those barriers. They also touch on the hierarchies created in terms of race and gender and the need for diversity and inclusivity. Priscillah shares deep insights into what both male and female leaders should do to level the playing field for leaders in terms of race and gender and the ethical implications in that context. She gives valuable advice to aspiring leaders and how they can leave a legacy.
We are often quite unaware of how our belief systems are influenced by various external factors, and how those beliefs may impact on our decisions and actions. Not interrogating information that we are being fed on a daily basis could quite easily lead to a skewed view of reality, which may lead to inappropriate decisions or actions. Reflecting on how we have come to our conclusions should be standard practice for leaders.
