- ItemSocial transformation, leadership and healing(SUN MeDIA, 2010) Keim, Marion; Ecumenical Foundation of South Africa (EFSA)FOREWORD: During two invigorating days, academics, research students and community leaders came together to discuss the challenges of social transformation, the definition and role of leadership in the transformation, and the role of various healing processes in achieving reconciliation. The intellectually stimulating deliberations confirmed on the basis of case studies that social transformation fails when leadership fails. The concept of leadership was interrogated by several of the presenters. What emerges is that leadership comes from within the individual – it is an inner passion – and that the leader is a servant of society rather than a commander of people. The role of leadership should not be perceived as restricted to local, regional and national governments, but is necessary at all levels of society: it is a collective responsibility. To seek change we must first embrace the change.
