Session 1 – More Than A Logo: Unpacking Brand Promise
Over the past 25 years the Schuitema Human Excellence Group has been working on how the issue of intent affects individuals and organisations, which among other things, has produced the Care and Growth Leadership Model and the Intent Personal Excellence Framework. This work has matured to the point where we are now able to offer a fully integrated understanding of what would enable an organisation to establish a trustworthy brand and a culture that would enable the people in the organisation to live the brand promise. In this presentation Etsko Schuitema will explore the key assumptions in the model and what the practical implications of this are.
Etsko, whose family was in mining, was exposed to the inner workings of the mining industry at a young age. At the University of the Witwatersrand he completed an honours degree in Social Anthropology before joining the Chamber of Mines of South Africa Research Organisation as a graduate researcher. His work at the Chamber was initially focused on the issue of conflict in gold mines in the final eclipse of the apartheid regime. His groundbreaking work, dealing with conflict resolution, led to the development of a framework for understanding trust in this controversial industry. As the Head of the Chamber’s Human Resources Laboratory Industry Project in the late 1980’s he went on to examine the fundamental criteria which exist in the relationship between employer and employee. The outcome was a unique perspective on leadership which subsequently has become known as the Care and Growth Leadership Model. The application of the model in South Africa’s gold mines met with significant success, which led Etsko and a small group of colleagues to leave the Chamber of Mines with the objective of disseminating the model more widely. In 1989 he founded Schuitema of which he is the Managing member. Since then the Care and Growth Model has been tested in disparate contexts, in 17 countries and on 5 continents.In every context the basic premises of the model have been vindicated. Namely, that there is a fundamental connection between the problem of organisational excellence and personal excellence and that the nature of that connection is ethical and / or moral. Dr Michael Jordaan, former CEO of FNB, has referred to Etsko as “the philosopher for the 21st Century”. A colleague says “He is a compassionate and intriguing man, a singularly original thinker and a charismatic presenter who woos a crowd of 300 as easily as one of 30 or less.” Check out his website.
