By Peter Jordan, associate, Legitimate Leadership.
In 2015 Legitimate Leadership introduced the first Grow to Care workshops. These are intended for employees who do not have others reporting to them.

ARTICLE: THE BENEVOLENT ENTREPRENEUR’S MOTIVATING WHY
By Nothemba Mxenge, associate, Legitimate Leadership.
On the 10 January 2018 I facilitated a full-day workshop for the ABSA Enterprise Development (ED) Programme (ABSA is a South African bank) with the aim of aligning more than 60 entrepreneurs’ personal purpose to their business objectives, thus cultivating a deeper commitment to delivering on their 2018 goals.
The day allowed for introspection on their way of being – who am I? who am I becoming? and who do I want to be? Participants spent time considering their reasons for starting their businesses (their motivating whys), and how those translated into their business value proposition.
The ED programme assists emerging black small and medium enterprises in South Africa to grow and prosper through various initiatives, including access to development finance, to markets, and to business development support. Entrepreneurial skills development is a key focus, and this workshop paid attention to the Why rather than the How or What of the business service/product offering.
