As South Africa faces crises on a number of fronts, the country's leadership under pressure has been brought into question. A leader's legacy may be judged on how well a country or a nation navigates it's way through a crisis.
Buyani Zwane, of the Gordon Institute of Business Science, joins 702's Azania Mosaka to talk about what makes great leadership.
Leadership is an art rather than a science.— Buyani Zwane, Gordon's Institute of Business Science
A leader needs four tools says Zwane - planning, leading, organising and controlling. All involve having scientific systems in place he says - except for leading.
Leadership is being able to take the whole person with you on a journey - to places they have never been before.— Buyani Zwane, Gordon's Institute of Business Science
He says great leaders need to be able to rise above existing - often difficult - circumstances, and be able to position and carve a future that others should follow.
