Behold the turtle – he only makes progress when his neck is stuck out. This proverb, included in Bonang Mohale’s best-selling first book, Lift As You Rise, sets the tone for his second book, which includes fresh insights and wisdom from one of South Africa’s best-loved leaders. As a change agent, defender of democracy and a social justice activist, Bonang continues to stick his own neck out, addressing issues of key societal importance. Behold the Turtle – Thoughts on Ethically Principled Leadership, expands on issues of leadership, resilience, ethics and social justice – sounding a call for change. Never one to avoid tough issues, Bonang tackles the role that business, institutions of higher learning and other organisations need to play in creating South Africa’s future, as well as the risk and responsibility required of each of us as individuals.
