To see my four-month-old son in his exploration phase got me thinking about why our hunger for exploration fades. Are we just too used to the world or do we give up and stay loyal to our comfort zones? Maybe we're just caught up in the 'must do's' of life and neglect the 'want to's'.

According to the Ekurhuleni Skills and Training Center SA can reach this target if government provides development opportunities for older semi-skilled workers as well as young people.
This comment got me thinking about the current focus on youth development, youth employment, youth subsidies.
No-one doubts that investing in our young…Continue

With organisations doing the same thing over and over again - and not drawing on any new research - leadership development has become stuck in a rut.

The organisation for economic co-operation and development was quoted as saying that “skills are the global currency of the 21st century”.
