'Lekgotla' is an African word for 'meeting circle' and 'tribal management', on which this book is based, is founded on the African concept of 'Ubuntu' - meaning 'I am because we exist'.
In Lekgotla! author Willem H.J. De Liefde champions the idea of the company as tribe.
He puts forward practical guidelines and principles that will impact positively on current management theories, which, he says, are mostly based on power structures, maintained by excluding the majority from the decision-making process.
