  1. 1. Ubuntu Leadership: Leadership for Positive ChangeBarrett Values Based LeadershipConferenceCape Town, South AfricaSeptember 19, 2012Ann Dinan,The DeeperLeadership Institute
  2. 2. Ubuntu Defined Ubuntu – “a person is a person through other persons” (I am because you are). Humanistic philosophy which developed over hundreds of years in traditional African Culture. Ubuntu, expresses a basic respect and compassion for others; represents personhood, humanity, humaneness, and morality. Shutte (1993) states that Ubuntu is encapsulated in our relationship with and treatment of others. Louw (1997) “individuals only exist in their relationships with others, and as these relationships change, so do the characters of the individual.” Van Binsbergen (2001) states, “Ubuntu’s transformative processes are intended to restore, initiate, and bring about social changes in non-violent or non-threatening ways.”
  3. 3. Ubuntu Leadership Ubuntu Leadership Model – a revolutionary model that offers a way of being, perceiving and acting in the world. This model maintains the importance of facilitating society’s evolution toward economic, social, and environmental sustainability through collaboration amongst all three sectors.
  4. 4. Leadership Model The underlying way of being is expressed through compassion, reciprocity, dignity, humanity and mutuality in the interest of building and maintaining communities of justice and caring. Self Awareness Self-Mastery Relational Awareness Relational Mastery Attitudes, Behaviors, Thoughts, and Actions that supports a more humanistic, world.
  5. 5. Hybrid Model of Leadership  The model we are proposing takes many of the tenets of Ubuntu but is not strictly “loyal” to the African definition. We believe this model has universal application.
  6. 6. Model Framework  The framework draws on systems theory, relational theory, as well as concepts from servant leadership, transformational leadership, appreciative inquiry, & conflict resolution to name a few.
