Leadership Dialogues and Conversations
The African Leadership Group’s programme of leadership dialogues and conversations are aimed at promoting informed, lasting inter and intra-group dialogue and conversation to stimulate national reconciliation and cohesion. The programme aims to promote leadership which is informed by our diverse African experiences, whilst at the same time harnessing the diversities and synergies offered by global and ethnic leadership concepts, contemporary and traditional leadership models, and public and business leadership best practice.
Participation in the leadership dialogue-and-conversation sessions is intended to help deliver the following:
- Help improve the credibility and flow of vital communication from the top-down and from the ground-upwards
- Help minimise the negative impact of deep-seated race or culture-based prejudices, stereotypes and influences
- Help promote productive cohesion across the entire organisations and between people from diverse backgrounds
- Help entrench a culture of open and transparent communication, information sharing and full involvement in decision-making
- Encourage participants to learn to take full and personal responsibility for their own actions
- Help eradicate a culture of work avoidance and blaming others for own mistakes and shortcomings
The new series of leadership dialogue and conversations for 2012 follow-on from a programme of highly successful dialogue sessions held over the past five years including:
- Leadership Dialogue Sessions – Gauteng July 2007
- Mapungubwe Heritage and Leadership Exposition – November 2007
