Traversing the Avalanche: A...

When on an expedition to the summit of a great mountain, the last sound you want to hear is the ‘whumph’ under your feet – the tell-tale sign that an avalanche is about to descend. In that moment you realise that the sudden and devastating shift in snow may just destroy you.

In business, an avalanche could be a sudden or unexpected business catastrophe that threatens to destroy everything you have created. Or it could be the potential for disaster that you face when trying to reach the next level of success; a step up that perhaps requires more than you can currently give.

COMPETENCE REFINED - The 5...

Competence is one of those terms used frequently in a variety of contexts without a practical and usable definition. In all walks of life, but particularly in the work environment, competence is a foundation for success and a sense of accomplishment.

This book puts a stake in the ground and clearly defines what the five elements of competency are. It then expands each sphere so that the reader not only broadens their understanding, but is able to actively start developing themselves, their teams, and the people in their lives in the various areas.

Writing for Salvation -...

Forty years after coming of age in South Africa in the 1960s, the author unearths a forgotten manuscript written at that time. Through rereading this early work, he revisits the political and religious falsehoods that had characterised the context of his genesis as a writer, particularly as revealed by the fictional characters that he then created.

Two women have been damaged by the realities of the time, one crushed by the withering world of Afrikaner urbanisation, the other by the devastating impact of racially defined morality. They bring tragedy and greater maturity to the central character, a young visual artist who falls in love with both these shattered individuals.
