After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Tygervalley.
Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to browse.
Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from Tygervalley :
Dear Mrs. Harris ,
Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this…

What we really need to think of is how we can circumvent big business from using and abusing their extravant control over entrepreneurs. We need to create opportunies for entrepreneurs to emerge in a thriving economy where both the Corporate sector, Government sector and small businesses can identify the importance in putting all shoulders to the…Continue

The Economic meltdown in the global scenario sends us a clear challenge in finding solutions to the impact it has on humanity, environment and conservation, but more important the impact that it has on our culture 7 behaviour.

As countries around the world continue to fight their way out of the recession, support for entrepreneurs and small businesses has never been more critical – particularly in a country such as South Africa where the official unemployment rate stands at over 25%.
Bringing together experts in the field is key in the promotion of entrepreneurship and small business, as it gives fledgling entrepreneurs and other parties the opportunity to exchange ideas on approaches, experiences and…

I recently spotted this question on twitter from Northlink College and it got me thinking of everything i wanted to pursue when i was young and to search my passion in so many directions it was endless. I was all revved up, full gear.
I ended up doing nothing i was passionate for or felt strongly enough in my bones to fight and say that this was what i wanted to become.
Reading novels and watching progams had a huge influence in my career choice.
My dreams and ideas…Continue
A report by ABNdigital says that SA could be heading for a major fall as student debt continues to spiral out of control. This crisis could potentially cause greater damage than the recession of 2008 yet there is no end in sight to the financial commitments made by a desperate and unknowing student population.
The message to young people is that their hope, opportunity, future depends on a higher education, and some have bought into the idea that they need to get that education at any…Continue

When managers delegate they provide a framework and structure for employees. Employees know what is expected and what has to be done. It remains the manager’s responsibility to ensure each employee plays their part. Managers must select the right people for the right jobs, and assign them tasks that suit their skills and abilities. When managers delegate they must retain control and authority as they are still responsible and accountable.
Delegation is not empowerment
“I try hard not…

The loss of life uncalled for
Why did they have to die?
Families left behind
Children without fathers
Wives without husbands
Sadness all around
Dear God - what has become of us?
Why such disregard for life?
Why not discuss - not demand?
Violence to gain attention
Why do leaders incite this violence?
Who to blame?
Not the question
The question is
Who caused these deaths?
Those responsible - no matter who
Must pay the…
“To expand leadership capacity, organisations must not only develop the leadership capacities of individuals but also develop the leadership capacity of collectives”
—Ellen Van Velsor & Cynthia McCauley

Before posting the blog I took a few minutes to think about the heading. I did not want it to sign negative. Being negative will not help to solve a problem. So I decided on the heading: Do something about violence, because that can give us hope … we can DO something!
