Adaptive and transformative leadership in a rapidly evolving South African environment
“Be a voice, not an echo’’
Nexus is a seven-month transformative leadership programme that supports leaders in business, civil society and government to more skilfully – and collaboratively – understand and navigate the complexities of the South Africa context. Utilising a myriad of learning tools underpinned by deep dialogue, contextual awareness, experiential learning and self-reflection, Nexus nurtures leaders who are self-aware, have a high level of personal mastery, are able to engage meaningfully with a diversity of perspectives, and have the skills and the passion to develop innovative solutions to new challenges. The programme also provides tools for the application of key learnings back into the workplace
The Nexus programme has been selected by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) as one of 35 programmes globally that demonstrate "the unique ways that business schools globally embrace an innovative mindset, and serve as visionaries across the higher education landscape". In total, the AACSB received more than 315 submissions, across 33 countries for the 2017 Innovations That Inspire showcase.
The Nexus programme is based on experiential learning, reflective practice and direct engagement with societal leaders. It is not lecture based. Participants are invited into a series of carefully designed engagements with self, with others and with the broader environment and supported to reflect on these experiences to gain new insight. In this way, the learning of each participant is unique to them and continues to develop long after the end of the programme.
Over the 7-month programme, delegates meet for two consecutive days a month. A series of written assignments allow delegates to integrate the learnings into their own lives.
