The Leadership Platform

CLIFFCENTRAL.COM  |  Podcast , ±31 min episodes every day  |  Broadcast schedule  | 
The Leadership Platform show is a show on the fringe of change in leadership development, debating leadership issues and casting the spotlight on leaders. Adriaan Groenewald as an accomplished author and leadership advisor has been interviewing and working with top leaders for more than 15 years, and is therefore perfectly placed to present the show. Every Monday from 12:00 to 15:00 leaders (senior and junior) join the largest leadership “classroom” in SA, broadcasting from the heart of South Africa – Johannesburg, Mandela country, that person that the world gravitated towards because it craves his kind of leadership… Leadership Platform will try to import that leadership “spirit”, into South Africans’ hearts and habits; and further export it to the world! The show is every Monday to lift leaders and empower them to create better movement of their people and responsibility the rest of the week. The show includes an SME leadership feature with panel discussion, business skills, and the Youth Leadership Platform.

Youth Leadership Platform: BlackExcellence-ish

Bongani is joined by thought leader and content creator Nhlanhla Simphiwe Mthembu to discuss Black Excellence. She challenges the conventional definition of what 'excellence' is and explains why black excellence cannot only be celebrated when people thrive in 'reputable’ ways - academic performance, entrepreneurial advancements, owning a German car, owning an apartment in SA's fancy suburbs, or speaking with a Model-C accent. She explains that from experience and observation, the current definition of black excellence excludes a vast majority of black people who are excelling in different ways and may leave them feeling inadequate and like under performers. The two also chat about specific childhood events and the impact that they may have had in her adult life.

Youth Leadership Platform: Overcoming Prejudice (Part 2)

One of the hardest tasks facing every South African is to dismantle the prejudice, fear and ignorance that have been instilled in us by the way our country is structured. Too often we think that our personal behaviour is unaffected by the past and that others are the problem. But is it true? In this interview, Bongani Tau gets comfortably uncomfortable with journalist C.L Bell as they discuss her book, 'Lost Where We Belong', which began as a reporting assignment on 'democracy in the old Transkei' for Time magazine, and evolves into an extended essay on identity, belonging and what it takes to probe the conscious and unconscious shadows of an apartheid childhood.
