In a world and country where chaos often rains, it is frequently believed that more skills, more education and more training is the only offering to appease the monster god called production. However, in a time where guru’s tell us that the are aligning, that world destruction is upon is, but that there is hope, if we change our attitudes, our views and beliefs. Books like The Secret and Matrix Re imprinting (too mention but a few)will have us believe that all we need to do is to imagine a different world and to become conscious of the deeds we perform, of the creation we impart.
For South Africa, this implies that, before we could engage in meaningful skills development, we ought to address the issues of our values. We should interrogate our beliefs, our premise of the world. We ought to ask, how do we change the hearts and minds of South Africans to create a foundation on which skills development can rest. Perhaps a new mentality is needed to create the millions of jobs envisaged. And is that not what Zumanomics is all about. A new growth path, a new vision, a new mentality of prosperity.
