The Future of Leadership is Collegiality – well-known entrepreneur Mike Teke shares some of his insights on leadership
 More about the book!

The Future of Leadership is Collegiality by Mike Teke is out now from Tracey McDonald Publishers.

‘I believe the world has moved on to a phase where we now appreciate collegiality. In my view the current generation of successful leaders will not be seen as heroes who dominate the boardroom with ruthlessness, but as heroes who can combine collegiality with fast and decisive decision-making and collaborative teamwork.’ – Mike Teke

In The Future of Leadership is Collegiality Mike Teke shares some of his insights on leadership and the approaches that have made him successful.

Teke believes that ‘young leaders emulate and mimic experienced leaders – whether the habits they are copying are right or not so right. This happens because young leaders search for ways and means to be recognised, advance in their careers, or be seen as impressive leaders.’

He discusses concepts such as collegiality, fraternisation, ingratiation and self respect, and illustrates his ideas with examples of South African and world leaders. On his own journey towards becoming a leader, it was inculcated in him that one had to be ‘tough and ruthless’ in their approach to leading. However, times have moved on and the game has changed!

To be effective and deliver consistently in business, Teke has realised that collegiality is the way of the future. ‘There is no need to scream at others, bang tables or use foul language!’ He believes that collegiality works everywhere – as long as one is willing to lead effectively.

This book belongs on the desks of every existing and aspiring entrepreneur, CEO and manager.
