Seamless Leadership: Universal Lessons from South Africa

by Adriaan Groenewald

For most of the lifespan of the new South Africa, leadership consultant Adriaan Groenewald has interviewed and written about top political, corporate, entertainment and sports leaders. His leadership model embraces the legacy of Nelson Mandela to unselfishly unite people around the creation of positive movement towards the impossible, while fearlessly, openly embracing and confronting all obstacles along the way. What makes a seamless leader?

The book combines theory and practice in subjects such as decision making, combining success and values, igniting passion and shifting attitude, performance, multiplying leaders for real impact, motivation, courageous conversations, and leading in difficult times or sensitive situations.

Short chapters are complemented by interview sections which illuminate principles learned from personal leadership conversations with individuals from different sectors of society, ranging from President Jacob Zuma to Helen Zille and Sizwe Nxasana to Mike Brown.
