Our Future in the hands of a Leadership Dilemma!
June 2016.  Full Article available at 

Life never ceases to have a meaning, under any conditions, even tragic and negative aspects of life points to a purposeful path, so look for meaning therein. Through the attitude adopted towards any predicament, whether pain, death and guilt, or disaster, instead of succumbing to passive acceptance - you can turn it into a human achievement, not despair but triumph. (Victor Frankl).

A Fragmented Society reflects the inner lives of its Leaders as its primary sources of knowledge and change initiatives. Social Transformation involve a process of dialogue, and action that results in substantial shifts in social norms, but is characterised by the legitimacy of discordant voices, particularly of those most marginalised in society. Those who stand for progressive social change believes that our society needs transformation; however, this transition demands serious introspection on the fundamental drivers that may limit, or empower human endeavour. The dilemma arises when Leaders, based on their own role models, do not propose new ideologies, or represent a unique Identity that can provide constructive direction, unanimity, and interconnectedness across borders to provide meaning and stability for the new generation. Part of the problem may be that we know very little about what constitutes good leaders, or how to develop the capacity that would address the prevailing negative forces that reinforce a disjointed society. Or must there first be another cataclysmic event that will unite people for a common cause, or a Vision for Transformation that can provide new foundations for a united humanity? Read more about the need for Social Transformation, and what you can do about the dilemma we face at: Leadership Dilemma.

Can Leadership Development Transform Society?
May 2016.  Full Article available at    

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” (Leo Tolstoy).

How do we create a society that is better enabled to deal with the challenges we face today? While reformation movements have come and gone, current systems are still not fit for purpose to create and sustain a ‘New Earth’ global community. What is needed is a new kind of thinking about the role of transformative, or developmental leadership, especially the role of education, and the position of social and business leaders therein. Training interventions that focus on Leadership and Entrepreneurial development therefore need to bridge this gap, and retain talent transfer that serves the needs experienced in the work place. The future role of collaboration in learning and the position of various business leaders therein, are key dynamics often debated among Millennials. Young people long for transformation in their communities and the new generation of leaders are challenging systems thinking, and are calling for mentors with an out-of-the box business and educational approach to guide and support them.

Transformative Coaching, illuminates the processes of business leadership to impact change in society, which can translate into practical interventions that promote this kind of support needed. Several ways to stimulate a transformative learning experience is identified and included in the Entrepreneurial Leadership Incubation process that utilises group projects and interactive dialogue between various generations to stimulate critical reflection, innovation, and growth. This approach to leadership development is dynamic and contributes to the effective development of leadership skills that can be transferred to empower the next generation. The complexities entailed, also require a new kind of change agent who has developed the personal capacities required for the complex demands of effective leadership to initiate change. This kind of approach to education, under guidance of an incubation mentor, aims to cultivate four specific capacities indicative of transformative Leadership. Read more about these qualities embeded in the Leadership Development process presented by the Meta-Life Institute. The full article is available at this link.

Creating a better Society - Why should I care ... Do you?
April 2016.  Full Article available at    
“Change the way you see things and the things you see will change”. (Dr. Wayne Dyer).

Don’t you get it, what do I care about a world that is full of anger and violence, corruption and lies, poverty and drought, abuse and political scandals, and oh yes, earthquakes and cancer! As long as I earn enough money to pay my bills, eat enough, have something to wear, and can entertain myself safely at home in front of the television with the latest soapie, why should I care? Is it not enough that we talk about it at work and read the newspapers to make us aware? Why should I do more?

Conversations for Social Transformation, is an initiative of the Meta-Life Institute that recently held another public talk to promote public awareness of possible solutions for the problems experienced in our communities. During the meeting held in Pinetown (KZN, South Africa), interested parties participating in the conversation raised several questions concerning the causes of conflict, and the process involved to establish peace and harmony in society. In this regard, steps to initiate Social Development were discussed that would lead to the needed transformation in our communities, and to foster wholesome conditions for people to live in harmony and prosper. Disturbing the results as it may seem, the conversation also turned to the reasons why there is no real progress. The processes of transformation are indeed complex. To read more about the challenges confronting the world today and possible solutions, please read the full article here.

Instead of the usual legalistic approach of do’s and don’ts, these kind of interactions propose new approach towards life. The NEW EARTH spiritual principles promoted through these Conversations for Transformation, can be followed by any person desiring to see a change in the world. Positive change starts with conscious and mindful living. When we are preoccupied with making a difference, we will be willing to stand for the principles you want to live today that will create a better future for all tomorrow. It is often said: Be the Change you want to see in the World”. Social development and growth thrive when these factors are present. 

Visions of Transformation.

How do we create a better world to live in? How do I deal with the frustrations of life? A very relevant topic and important principles that can be applied personally and in your work environment. Social or Personal Transformation, it all boils down to Consciousness. At the Meta-Life Institute, our research focuses on the application of Transformative Learning Strategies that promote Integrative Spiritual Experiences and Social Development. Our intention is to assist a new generation of problem solvers to become conscious entrepreneurial leaders that want to make a difference to their communities. We have a vision for the transformation of social consciousness. It starts here.
