5th and revised version of The Power of African Thinking – Leontine van Hooft

GreenDreamCompany’s brand Leontine van Hooft is proud to announce the 5th and revised version of the management book The Power of African Thinking.

With the foreword written by former Dutch politician and bestselling author Jan Terlouw, this book introduces you to a different way of living and working in line with this rapidly changing world.

‘The power of African thinking’ introduces you to one of Africa’s oldest wisdoms: the humanistic philosophy Ubuntu, ‘I am because We are’. An originally tribal philosophy that assumes that humanity comes into its own community.

Formed by Ubuntu, Africa is working hard on a solid SME and is connecting at a global level. With charismatic leaders such as Nelson Mandela, Kofi Annan, Desmond Tutu, Ellen Sirleaf and Barack Obama at the forefront.

A book not only inspiring for managers, leaders and entrepreneurs, but also for people who are looking for a different way of living and working.

“The mindset that Ubuntu represents affects all aspects of society. Connecting leadership and a new world. This book shows how it can be done differently. Well worth a read.” – Jan Terlouw, on ‘The Power of African thinking’.

This book is available in Dutch at Bol, Amazon and the webshop of Ubuntopia.
