Bonang Mohale's Behold the Turtle.
Bonang Mohale's Behold the Turtle.

“Behold the turtle – he only makes progress when his neck is stuck out.” This proverb, included in Bonang Mohale's bestselling first book, Lift As You Rise, sets the tone for his second book, Behold the Turtle: Thoughts on Ethically Principled Ladership (Tracey McDonald Publishers), which includes fresh insights and wisdom from this defender of democracy and social justice activist. In the book, Mohale tackles difficult issues such as state capture and the Covid-19 pandemic, and the role business, institutions of higher learning and other organisations need to play in creating South Africa's future, as well as the risk and responsibility required of each of us as individuals.

Mohale is the chancellor of the University of the Free State, professor of practice at the Johannesburg Business School’s Colege of Business and Economics, chairperson of Bidvest and SBV Services, as well as the president of Business Unity South Africa.
