The 2020 Leader

‘The 2020 Leader’ is an advanced leadership program offering contemporary concepts, bold new ideas and reflecting on the implications for leaders in these challenging times – all geared to answer the core question:

What does it take to lead effectively in a fast changing and unpredictable world?

Why This Program?

The pace of change is escalating faster than our ability to learn. Past case studies or models don’t serve that well anymore
Strategists talk about the world we live in as being a VUCA world – a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous world.
Being a leader in a VUCA world fundamentally means giving up traditional conceptions of both strategy and leadership.


Gain an understanding of how the VUCA world has developed, and the strategic implications for leaders
Develop leadership techniques for a volatile world as a result of constant change, constant pressure to perform and increasing uncertainty.
Understand how leaders can enhance the performance of their team members in a VUCA world.

Receive quality time to reassess personal leadership approaches.

Share, discuss and workshop personal leadership challenges.

Access to accredited, professional business coaches.

Program details

Day 1: Durban, South Africa

This program begins in Durban on Sunday 19th August 2018 and is for all past delegates of either Ubuholi Nobuntu or Leading with Humanity programs.

Day 2 - 6: Phinda Resource Reserve

The remainder of the program takes place at Phinda Resource Reserve. Phinda – Zulu for ‘the return’ - is a unique example of the delicate balance between the environment, society in transition and commercial imperatives.

Delegates will be returned to Durban on the afternoon of Friday 24th August 2018.

NB: This is not a refresher program that replicates / reviews original Ubuholi Nobuntu / Leading with Humanity material / experiences. 


Delegates largely spend the week’s journey in unusual or foreign situations / circumstances. For many this may appear unsafe. Every precaution is taken to ensure delegates’ safety (although much of the backup is unseen).

Before each activity, delegates are fully briefed on what to do. Trusted local guides and routes are used. When walking in the bush, fully trained game rangers accompany delegates.
