Hope for all! Do you have a solution?

We all need HOPE!

In our travels around the country, working with and meeting diverse people, I have discovered that the greatest thing missing in our country is Hope.

I met a man, in the rural Western Cape, who runs a very successful tuckshop. They supply all the daily groceries needs in the area. And the most awesome calamari, fish and chips. People travel great distances, to buy from him.

J, designated “coloured”, in South Africa, told me a…

Democratic Constitution & Bill of Rights - Most unequal socio-economic & political society !

Call it what you like, it remains government with a strong nationalist foundation equal to that of an oppressive and discriminatory National Party government. Nationalism breeds discontent and justice and freedom are compromised.

Xenophobia is at the core of a fragmented government that tells the world of a democracy constitution when in fact most minority South African groups are disadvantaged through various discriminatory government policies and regulations that result in practices…

What should you promote in an employee

When considering who you want in your company, there are many factors aside from someone’s skill level to consider. For example, you can have the best doctor in the world, but if he treats others badly, you might want to consider hiring him.

An important and often overlooked ability is emotional intelligence. This is the ability to perceive, control and evaluate emotions. Emotions have an impact on others and not having a handle on them could…

Trainability Tests

Dear Skills Universe members

A friend phoned me today asking if I could assist with 'trainability tests'. They have a client who would like to put their staff through a 'test' that sees if the person is 'trainable' or not. I told him that I only know of skills audits and training needs analysis.

Has anyone ever been involved with or know how to do 'trainability tests'. I would appreciate it if you could let me know? There might be some business in there for you…

Economic Progress in a truly democratic country where all our young adults are treated fair and equal.

It is a travesty of justice and in direct conflict with principles of freedom and democracy when the government enforce legislation based on race and culture on the commercial and business sectors as well as on civil society, that feed the mouths of the politicians and the nation at large.

The courts of law, political parties, and the corporate sectors, including religious organisations and academic institutions are silent on these issues in-spite of visible proof that the masses of…
