The power of this theory lies in its authenticity. This is not just another guideline or inspirational book it speaks to the fundamental value system of a leader. I support Volker Hoogbergs view that: The insights that Etsko so ably articulates in this book are fresh, basic and consistently helpful to all those who reflect on what they can do for others. --Francois Hugo, HR Director, FNB
A wake up call for managers who would strive to be leaders. Etsko Schuitema transforms the words power and empowerment into living, breathing ways of human interaction. Authentic leaders earn respect of others , rather than demanding it. This book illustrates the authentic, timeless Care and Growth Model. --Dr. Denis Waitley, author of The Seeds of Greatness
In identifying the traits of a leader, Etsko has redefined leadership: it is not about power structures or privilege or advantage; rather, it is natural leadership, concerned with authentic personal traits which gain natural recognition amongst fellow humans. Another theme in the book fundamentally re-imagines organizations for a world where ecological realities are honoured. Etsko, a social anthropologist, visualizes organizations as living, organic structures a view that is now widely confirmed. Not enough literature is available on this emerging field. This is what makes LEADERSHIP an exceptionally valuable read for those seeking a framework to organize in an interconnected, fairer, and as they say a post-catastrophic world. --Ramla Akhtar, founder of The Changemakers Hub --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Finally, if you take the time to read it and on your first time you get stuck on some idiosyncrasies of the author's conveyance of his ideas or if you don't quite fully grasp the 'so what' - read it again, be patient... it's worth it. ;-)
