Bonang Mohale embraces the notion of 'ubuntu' in his book Lift As You Rise

South African businessman Bonang Mohale is the author of a new book titled Lift As you Rise.

Mohale says the title comes from the African adage which says in order to improve the quality of life of our people, you need to embrace the notion of Ubuntu.

The book is a compilation of narratives in which Mohale reveals the issues he is passionate about, among them transformation, people development, constructive collaboration and integrity, and how they came to define his career and his life.

You don't have to wait until you are called a chairman, CEO or managing director - extend a hand and lift someone who is slightly less fortunate than yourself. That's how you build a people.

I have tried to live my life with these old family values, the same way my grandmother brought me up in saying lift others as you rise because that is what is required and expected of you.

Selflessness is a notion that says I will do it even though no one is watching, I will do it even though there is no recognition and I will do it because it is a moral obligation.

Mohale's book is available at Exclusive Books and other online shops.
