Discovering the Spirit of Ubuntu Leadership : Compassion, Community, and Respect (Hardcover) (Priscilla
About this item
Leadership has seldom been studied in the context of "humanness", a cultural philosophical practice that embodies a ubiquitous spirit of community, generosity and compassion to others' needs. Discovering the Spirit of Ubuntu Leadership introduces a new leadership model which takes into account the history, culture and economic environment of those being studied.This book outlines the leadership experiences of ten female Zimbabwean leaders in non-governmental organizations to understand, discover, observe and share their personal leadership experiences. It uncovers emerging leadership characteristics unique to these women, and exposes those leadership characteristics that are universal to women around the world. This new model of 'Spirited Ubuntu Leadership' contributes to the gap in scholarship addressing women and leadership in Africa.
