To cultivate a culture of ethical leadership, Mangosuthu University of Technology took its management staff through on a two-day leadership workshop at Zimbali, north of Durban on 28 and 29 October 2019. The workshop, which was organised by the TLDC; focused on management and leadership, technology and the changing world of work.

In his opening address, MUT Vice-Chancellor, Dr Enoch Duma Malaza, talked about the significance embracing the institution’s values as a moral campus of our work at MUT. Dr Malaza reminded participants that part of his leadership style was to let people who perform their work without interference from him. But this was often an issue at MUT.  “At MUT you get the comments that so and so are becoming too powerful or too visible, if you do the work I let you lead,” said Dr Malaza. Dr Malaza also singled out promoting diversity as important for the University.  “If we promote diversity, we will emerge as richer individuals and MUT will be an even richer place.  I value the diversity I see at EMC,” said Dr Malaza.  The workshop was facilitated by Werner Landman, a business consultant from The Core Group.
