In this episode of ‘Do I Have A Choice’ (a series of podcasts about entrepreneurship, leadership, reflection and technology) John Sanei, CEO of the South African organization The Future Collective, tells about Connectivity and Reverse-innovation. Sani: "The world according to us is split up in three major markets: a mature market, like Holland, an emerging market, like Dubai and then you have the less affluent market, which are the poorer markets. You need to understand on which market you’re aiming at, and then you look at the mega, macro and micro trends inside those markets.”
The Future Collective recently published three video’s about trends on YouTube. One of the movies was taped in Langa, a township in Capetown. Sanei reflects on two very interesting developments, that we can learn from the people from Langa: Connectivity and Reverse-innovation. What can we, entrepreneurs in the West of Europe, learn from those trends? Sani: "The storytelling phenomenon has been something that Africans have done extremely well. And that’s how they send their wisdom across generations. What happens now is that the process of storytelling has moved on to airtime and to telephones. The platform of storytelling has changed.” For more inspiration listen tot the fifth episode of Do I Have A Choice.

In many sectors and organizations leaders face challenges related to ethics and integrity. In change processes many leaders deal with situations of conflicts and reconciliation. How can one be ethical when all ethical rules have broken down? How can you be ethical again after a crisis? It undermines the confidence in the trust. How do you resurrect ethics in that wasteland of trust? In the second edition of ‘Do I Have A Choice’, a series of podcasts about entrepreneurship, leadership, reflection and technology, Fanie du Toit, director of the South African Institute of Justice and Reconciliation, reflects on the profound topics of reconciliation and leadership.
“Very often I think that reconciliation is born, when other options have been exhausted”, says Fanie du Toit. He states that though reconciliation may sound like a very big word, it’s a reality we have to face in our personal and every-day life, also in organizations. The astonishing thing is, he says, that people do not reconcile in certain situations. His point of view is determined by the fact that we, as human being, are interdependent. To learn more about interdependency, check one of my previous blogposts. Getting curious about Du Toit’s view on what’s happening in Europe at the moment? Listen to the second edition of ‘Do I Have a Choice’.
