A soothing music is on, COMETSA branding is prepared, and the names of the guests with their details are ready.

The Perspective of the LEKGOTLA Way Learning & Development Methodology

MONTHLY FACE-TO-FACE INTERACTION & JOINT LEARNING:   Professionals are constantly looking for the opportunities to reach out to each other, interact and network. It is a professional need to be in the community of fellow professionals and discuss issues of common interest. We want the participants to look forward to meet their peers in a trusted and harmonious setting. That is our value-add to the professionals' growth. Joint learning platforms are what we believe in and commit to provide to our regular attendees of our monthly LEKGOTLA. PLATFORM FOR COLLECTIVELY CREATING NEW KNOWLEDGE:   It is very difficult to create and develop knowledge as an isolated individual. Every time one engages in a group dialogue new thoughts emerge. That is the power of collective thinking. We are confident that our monthly LEKGOTLA would become the home for journalists, opinion makers, broadcasters, etc. We are in need of creative reporting and writing. Knowledge and information is the food fo

FEBRUARY 2017 - CALL TO ACTION: COMETSA PMS The LEKGOTLA Way Networks & Forums Internal & External Mentors Network (IEMN) like a Mini-MBA

BACKGROUND: The day for the inaugural COMETSA PMS The LEKGOTLA Way Networks & Forums, is here. It is this weekend on Saturday, the 11 th February 2017, from 09h00 to 12h00, with a bonus 1 x hour Pre-Session and 1 x hour Post-Session Networking in the Garden. The Theme for this inaugural Network & Forums is COMETSA PMS Internal & External Mentors Network (IEMN). As I am sitting with the COMETSA team discussing this inaugural Network, I get more and more excited about this Journey we are about to embark on. We realise what it means to have each of our monthly Networks/Forums in a year dedicated to a particular theme, and not repeating that theme in the same year. This gives the participants of this particular Network a one year period in which to practice the concepts and apply the approaches coming from the Lekgotla. Just imagine yourself arriving at this inaugural Network addressing this crucial theme once only in this year 2017, and apply the knowledge until 2018
