In this conversation Dr Claudelle and Priscillah Mabelane explore the challenges leaders face in a fast-changing world and the leadership skills that have become non-negotiable. Priscillah provides insights into how she is navigating the new world and the characteristics that have helped her to ascend to the important role she fulfils today. She gives an honest account of areas where leaders have to challenge themselves in how they are contributing to their organisations and society as a whole. They also touch on the very important concept of ethical leadership and courage.
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.
