She unveils the tools and techniques behind the universal code to success and leadership that we can leverage to succeed.

We should all take responsibility for leading ourselves and businesses to success in the future.

It starts with first understanding how to adapt how we lead ourselves, others and our organisations in response to the new reality of a VUCA world (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity).

 The diversity of ideas, inventions and decisions that come from self-aware leaders are what will enable organisations of the future to thrive.

Leaders need to be able to self-disrupt in order to consistently re-invent their journey and that of their organisations – thus staying ahead of the world around them that is in constant change.

The businesses that can successfully tap into these opportunities are ones that understand the importance of having a long-term perspective and adapting their leadership approaches to the local context.

Zipho presents on how it is time the human race ends the era of living life in an unsustainable manner that compromises our mental wellbeing.

It is down to us to change, and she gives us ideas on how we can transform ourselves from working unsustainably hard, with high stress levels, to a more resilience way of being. She invites us to join her Non-Conformity Movement, and make for a better human race.
