A personal journey in the new South Africa by Prof. Jackie Naudé


“In 1990 South Africa was changing and, in light of the political changes, I was asked to facilitate a diversity workshop in a forward-thinking organization. This soon became my passion and for the last 19 years I have been facilitating what has evolved into transformation processes in numerous organizations. As part of our workshops we discuss the history of South Africa and how our past experiences impact on the manner in which we deal with the present. After most workshops I have been asked if this historical input is not available in hard copy and these requests have directly led to the writing of this book. In light of this the reader must please understand that the book reflects historically correct information, but is obviously influenced by my perceptions as developed over the last two decades. Those readers who have been on a workshop have the advantage of understanding the context of this book as it unfolds during the transformation workshops and I hope that you will gain new and additional information. For those who have not been directly exposed to the process, the book has been written as a lone-standing piece of work, which reflects my personal observations and beliefs.

Ultimately, whether you have been part of a greater transformation process or not, I hope that the book gets you thinking about the country in which you reside, your personal transformation journey and your role in creating the “new South Africa” because, ultimately, this is what this book hopes to achieve.”

    I am currently in my second year of the International Baccalaureate at Waterford KaMhlaba UWC and I must say this book was of great value when writing my History IA, which is about the history of South Africa. I especially appreciated how much of an easy and enjoyable read it was as historical research can sometime prove not to be 🙂

    Thank you very much
