RC leadership programme presented
2009-10-06

 
Last week a very successful leadership programme was presented for residents’ committee members of residences on the Main Campus of the University of the Free State (UFS) at Summerwood outside Bloemfontein. Prof. Jonathan Jansen, Rector and Vice-Chancellor, opened the programme and spoke about counter-cultural leadership.

He said that residents’ committees had to be the pioneers of the new generation of Kovsie leaders. “The qualities of the new generation of Kovsie leaders had to be that they should apply counter-cultural leadership; not think in the group, but be boundary crossing in their thought and leadership style; not think of themselves; display sacrifice leadership and be people-centred,” he said. He also said that the new generation of Kovsie leaders had to set an example through their leadership, think of their legacy, display an approach of service leadership and embrace change, instead of only tolerating it.
