Introducing SA's most comprehensive leadership book!


Two internationally recognised thought leaders on leadership teamed up with over 80 contributors to produce the most comprehensive and "biggest" business leadership book ever published in South Africa.


With 89 contributors, 56 chapters, 1000+ pages and featuring a foreword from Advocate Thuli Madonsela in hard cover, the book addresses Leadership from every possible angle. Essential reading for every leader!


The leadership education and development industry is worth over R500-billion worldwide. Yet, despite the vast amount of money invested, trust in leaders is at an all-time low.


Research has shown that the primary reason for leadership failure is a lack of contextual perspective. This is where Leadership: Perspectives from the Front Line is different to the thousands of other leadership books available.
