beschrijving

Is it a coincidence that recent leaders have African roots? Charismatic people like Nelson Mandela, Kofi Annan, Desmond Tutu, Paul Kagame and Barack Obama have been praised for their knowledge, vision, skills, unifying abilityand their thoroughness. These are leaders who focus on vision, courage, passion and compassion. They are builders, peace makers and campaigners for equal rights. A substantial part of this leadership style is the African philosophy of Ubuntu. Ubuntu means simply ‘I exist because of we.’ Connecting is central. You cannot function as a human being without being part of a greater whole.Africans apply this humanistic philosophy to every sector of society, from politics, law and religion, to healthcare, education and the economy. In The Power of African Thinking, Leontine van Hooft convincingly demonstrates that Ubuntu is the answer to contemporary western issues. With her own company as an example, she shows you how to integrate Ubuntu into your own organisation, and be ready for tomorrow’ sinevitable problems.
