About This Recipe


There's a lot more to leading than simply being in the position. As a leader, you set the culture for the rest of the organisation, and culture is directly linked to input and productivity in a team. So how do you lead in a way that's inductive to a flourishing, sustainable work environment? And how do you manage the many different characters and behaviours that make up your team? We've asked a South African business legend, who at one point in his career oversaw 50 000 employees, to unpack what it takes to lead with the kind of energy that inspires loyalty and commitment.
