The National Leadership Standard Journey

A common platform of understanding what leadership means for South African leaders in all fields so that we can unlock the potential in South Africa’s workplace and society in general.

The South African Board for People Practice (SABPP) is pleased to announce a series of two Leadership Standard Journey events.

The National Leadership Standard Journey, in partnership with Talent Talks and Wits Enterprise aims to bring the importance of leadership to the forefront of South African society by highlighting its pivotal role in determining its economic future.

This is not a leadership conference but rather a journey about leadership, and creating a national leadership standard to guide all leaders in their daily leadership practice.  It will tackle the issues of ethics, governance, responsibility, accountability, purpose, trust, decision-making and influence, and the duty of businesses and associations to form a united body to support leaders who can take the country on a new course and give people tangible direction and hope for the future. 

The first full-day event will be held at the Theatre on the Track, Kyalami, on 14 September 2017 followed by a second on 26 October 2017.

The event will feature powerful speakers like Adam Habib, Sim Tshabalala, Charlotte Mokoena and a special leadership panel representing top professional bodies.

The objective of the journey is ultimately to create a set of leadership standards for the country. It aims to inform stakeholders and debate their role in the leadership landscape, as well as to motivate people in business and government with the power to take action.

A ‘hands-off’ approach to leadership issues is no longer an option. Leaders need a framework with a clear standard on what is acceptable and unacceptable behavior. The right leadership behaviour will enable the right staff and stakeholder behaviour and lead organisations towards success.
