In 2018 the world economic forum created an interest in collaboration for “creating a shared future in a fractured world”. A dialogue session was planned, bringing together industry and organizational development experts.
The invitation with a mandate was to deliberate on reshaping leadership thinking in the 21st Century. Masters with passion and knowledge of Global leadership and transformation arrived at the café, a hotspot for the best freshly ground coffee grown on the foothills of the mountains in Kenya.
The Space,The place! Refreshing and natural. Painted murals on the wall showcased the picking, shelling, and fire-roasting of the coffee bean .
Boldly inscribed on the centre wall was: “There’s nothing better than getting your coffee fresh from the source.”
Whilst engaged in dialogue, rich aromas permeated the café space, allowing for vibrant conversations.
So perfect! a metaphor for the fresh blend of diverse leadership wisdom, collaborating to craft a compelling global future by re-engineering the leadership formula. Focus was established on transcending leadership practices to manage the viral spread of digital technology and its and impact on business, society and government for what is now the 4th Industrial Revolution(FIR).

“Leadership with conscience confidence, steeped in soulfully serving humanity” replied an industry expert. Adding to this sentiment, “a conscious mindset, with a strong inner core to leverage and navigate the “fire roasting” that will occur as these innovative technologies become embedded in our lives”, said another.
