Authentic African Leadership in Uncertain Times

Authentic African Leadership in Uncertain Times

Successful organisations have effective leaders. Effective leaders today are authentic, have emotional and social intelligence competencies, are vulnerable and bold in leading their teams. Leading in The Fourth Industrial Revolution requires a new leadership paradigm. Turbulent times call for an approach that puts people at the centre of everything they do. Leaders must transform their organizations to stay relevant and competitive amidst unprecedented change, that inspires a workforce to create opportunities and prosperity. The changed world of Covid-19 means business models that carried companies to the top of their industries are burning, set aflame by the pandemic, technology, demographic change, globalization, and other disruptive forces. Subject matter experts at MPC focus on the DNA of authentic leadership and provide practical strategies to enhance leadership behaviour.

Testimonials:

“My association with the Image Excellence Group (IE) has been one of the most positive experiences in my life under the leadership of Gail Cameron. Through the engagement with Gail Cameron, I have been able to understand the science behind creating a leadership vision. I have been enabled to be more focused, more consistent and to perform with less anxiety. My emotional intelligence (EQ) has been deepened. Through that engagement I have come to understand that without a better handle on one’s emotional intelligence, chasing ones capacity for ongoing inventiveness remains retarded. Gail has made me better understand not only that we create our own reality but how we connect with that process. In that context I have come to believe that prosperity must reside not only in who you are but how you use your mind and that the word ‘impossible’ only exists in the dictionary of fools. IE has demonstrated its capacity to impart leadership skills not only in the South African corporate world but also internationally. I would recommend their services to any who desire to enhance their capacity to achieve growth at a personal level and optimal leadership skills and delivery in their field of endeavour.”

“Gail has increased my self-awareness in respect to the importance of emotional and social intelligence. For an example, I no longer listen with folded arms in meetings. Conceding that I’m a leader in the military milieu, Gail has also enhanced my understanding that in communicating my vision, I need to engage with my subordinates in a probing manner that inspires team effort in respect to the task at hand – Contrary to the notion that “Generals are expected to issue orders”. Furthermore, when I was laterally moved to the position of Deputy CHR, I felt marginalised when my immediate superior dillydallied to sign my Performance Agreement on time and my hands were tied, Gail contextualised what was going on and encouraged me to soldier on. Through her support I was able to regain my voice and reclaim my space within the organisation. Her coaching has indeed enhanced my self-awareness and effectiveness as an authentic leader.”

"When I was first introduced to Image Excellence/MPC I was looking for a programme to help me develop my presentation skills as I started to do financial presentations to my board. This was in the late 90's. I was amazed to meet a team that didn't just delve into my presentation skills but the assessment of my entire being unpacking every aspect of who I am, where I was in my professional and personal journey was amazing. This happened at a time when coaching was not as fashionable as it is today. The invaluable benefits were beyond my presentation skills and I was taken through a profound journey of personal growth, step by step, by a team with diversified skills addressing each area that needed development ranging from a voice therapist to a psychologist who would assist with ones view of self and the environment that one was surrounded with. The integrated service that Image Excellence offered was a critical attraction for me. More than 10 years later, I remain a client of IE because they have moved with me as I progressed from being a professional technocrat to a leader. I could not have done this without the road map IE had designed for me."
