Ethical leadership - the building block for success in business
2015-03-13

Dr Reuel Khoza

As part of the professional development lecture series, the UFS Business School hosted Dr Reuel Khoza, Chairman of Aka Capital and Nedbank Group Limited, in a presentation to MBAs and the Bloemfontein business community on Leadership challenges of building an ethical organisation.  In his presentation, Dr Khoza discussed Nedbank’s journey to success, its approach, and the interventions used to make its success a reality.

He brought to the fore one of the challenges which many companies in South Africa and around the world often face, that is, to change the perception of leadership in a large organisation from a profit-centred orientation to a people-centred one. This is a process that can take years to achieve.

Dr Khoza said “Ethical and well-governed organisations create trust with stakeholders … ethical leadership has a ripple effect on all other leaders at all levels in an organisation” In concluding his presentation, he reiterated that ethical leaders embrace humanity; it is not prescribed as a duty but is self-prescribed.

The professional development lecture series is held at the Business School on the Bloemfontein Campus, hosting prominent speakers on various business-related topics throughout the year.
