Welcome to episode 6 of Radio Omnicor – our podcast about the science of business!
At Omnicor, we’re driven to understand as much as possible in the current organisational and people development space. Each episode will feature fascinating guests who will share tools and the latest thinking to help grow your own career or improve your team or business.
Professor Jansen is known for his strong views on transformation, peaceful reconciliation and unity, which he has pursued in earnest at UFS. Jansen stepped down as UFS Rector and Vice-Chancellor to become a Fellow at the Centre for Advanced Studies in the Behavioural Sciences at Stanford University in the US.
In recognition of his contribution to education Prof Jansen has received honorary doctorates in education from the United Kingdom and the USA, including one from the University of Edinburgh. Prof Jansen has published several books, is a columnist in leading newspapers in the country and has a large social media following.
Our time was short but we managed to touch on some really interesting issues – for example, why did Prof leave SA and is he coming back? How do we address racism in SA amongst our friends and community? What is a Tarzan Leader and how do we bring some heart back to our leadership decisions?
All these questions and more as described by our favourite inspiration and transformative leader, Prof Jonathan Jansen.
