Guest: Dr. Mlamuli Mthembu, PhD graduate, educationist and leadership expert
With age being nothing but a number for Dr Mlamuli Mthembu when it comes to education, achieving a doctorate in leadership studies at a senior stage in his life is an important milestone not only in his role as the former Director for Leadership Development at N2Growth Africa but also in his work as an educator and tutor.
Dr Mthembu says the doctoral degree stimulates him to make further contributions to the knowledge space and conversations about leadership and to provide support to school leaders who struggle to perform.
In his research titled: School Leadership in South Africa: Towards Embedding Presence for Principals for the Creation of Societal Value, Mthembu explores the challenges and impact of school leadership. The study, supervised by Dr Bibi Zaheenah Chummun, argues for the need to support principals in South Africa’s post-democratic dispensation.
