Buhle Dlamini - Leadership

Born and raised in the Rural KZN Village of Hlabisa, Buhlebethu (Buhle) Dlamini has risen and beaten the odds to become one of the top South Africans in People and Social Development today. Buhle has proven himself in the youth development field, business, public speaking, media and social entrepreneurship. His resume in just over a decade of professional work speaks for itself.

As a speaker Buhle Dlamini – Leadership never ceases to deliver a gripping and memorable experience with his genuine sense of humour, smile and great content. He is as comfortable speaking to a group of top managers and CEO’s as he is speaking to teenagers in a school prize-giving. One of the most common accolade is that he is able to connect with anyone and make them feel like they’ve always known him.

He has met iconic leaders like Mandela and Desmond Tutu, worked with youth in Germany, USAand the UKand spoken to Business Audiences the world over. Buhle has had a long standing link with The Salvation Army from his youth to date, which connects his faith and his desire to make a difference in the world. He has also been involved with Heartlines, a Mass Media Initiative that promotes good values through media and social action. He served as the project manager in the development of the 2006 Heartlines Award-Winning 8 Films on Values for which he, alongside Garth Japhet (founder) received an award from Arch-Bishop (emeritus) Desmond Tutu.

Buhle founded Young & Able cc, a business and personal development consultancy in 2003 with a desire to activate individual and organisational potential. This business quickly grew to offering consulting, speaking and training services to some of the top corporates in South Africa and abroad.

Buhle managed to grow and surround himself with a team of competent young consultants to offer a quality service in human development and training. This has led to other excellent initiatives like the initiative that encourages and support ordinary South Africans to mentor young people for good. Another equally exciting initiative of Young & Able is a partnership with a Scottish Youth Leadership Development Centre called Columba1400 that has enabled Young & Able to run successful school leadership academies for disadvantaged schools in townships and rural communities.

Afro-centric Leadership

There is no need to look across the seas for inspiration and direction when it comes to leadership. Africa has birthed some of the greatest leaders, throughout history, and right up to this present day.  What made them stand out as great leaders of their day?  What makes one person stand out head and shoulders above the rest in the competitive area of leadership?  This seminar looks at leaders in Africa and explores and applies the priorities and codes they lived by.  You will be able to evaluate your own leadership strengths and weaknesses and leave with a plan of how to follow in their footsteps.

Passion to Success

Buhle Dlamini – Leadership Presentation will help teams, organizations and individuals to be clear about what their passion is and in turn using this passion to spur them on to success in their field. Without passion work is a chore, without passion vision statements are just words on paper. Passion is the fire that pushes winners to be world class and organizations to excel beyond expectations. Organizations that are clear about their passion and encourage their employees to live and work with passion daily stand out in the marketplace. It will lead to job/work fulfillment and customer surprise and delight!    

Scratch the Itch of Greatness

The itch of greatness is full of hope, resilient by nature and boundless in its potential to serve the common good. There is a deep innate need, an almost exponential yearning within each of us to start scratching this itch of greatness.  This seminar will look at the dangers to greatness, the process of greatness, and the components of greatness.  Greatness is available to all through unselfish action fuelled by unselfish motivation. Everyone can be great.

From Dream to Delivery Excellence

This Presentation looks at how visionary organizations can turn great visions and dreams into excellence in service delivery. In most organizations there seems to be a breakdown between ‘The Dream’, ‘The Great Vision’ and quality of the service delivered. This breakdown costs organizations a great deal in the marketplace and within themselves. To deliver on the promise of the organization’s dream a shift is needed not only from the management but right through the organization. This presentation will get participants excited about their organizations dream and help them understand their role in making it reality.

Women and Leadership

Many women find themselves in un-chartered waters as they are promoted to positions of leadership in the corporate sphere.  Buhle Dlamini – Leadership seminar will assist you to take advantage of the opportunities available and reach your maximum potential.  You will be aided in understanding the challenges you face as leaders in the workplace, as well as identifying the errors many women make.

The Communication Game

An overview of basic skills that will help participants improve their abilities at all levels of communications.  Whether negotiating with the boss or presenting a business plan to employees understanding and applying the basic principles of communication will increase effectiveness.

Cross-cultural Skills

Never in the history of mankind have so many cultures interacted with such regularity.  Whether traveling internationally or simply heading to the local mall we’re all encountering people whose culture and worldviews differ from our own.  Delegates will be introduced to the basics of culture and trained in how to identify and respond to cultural differences.

Creating A Winning Environment

Summary: Few organisations reach the potential they have to be winners in their field. Apart from the quality of products and services provided, winning organisations understand the value of creating the right environment. Creating a winning environment is every team member’s responsibility that needs to be seen as part of the day to day business imperative. This presentation looks at the keys necessary to create such an environment by focusing on the following:

  • Understanding why we don’t understand – The Intergenerational workplace.
  • Avoiding Team Dysfunction – Team Dynamics.
  • Turning Passion Into Success – tapping into every individual’s passion for success.

The presentation is entertaining, challenging and practical accompanied by a full multi media experience that will take participants on an interactive journey as opposed to a lecture.
