Following on the success of the bespoke AfriLead Leadership development programme developed and delivered by Optima in 2017, a new intake started in February this year in Centurion, Worcester and Vryheid. Quarry Managers – a critical group of leaders in Afrimat, are the prime focus delegates of this intake. A great deal of the success is due to the enthusiastic and dedicated support of the executive, senior and line managers of each delegate. This programme is now called AfriLead 2, since a new programme, AfriLead 1, has also been introduced in 2018.
During the 2017 programme Afrimat identified the need for an “introduction to leadership” programme. Optima designed the programme (AfriLead 1) and started implementation in March, also in Centurion, Worcester and Vryheid. The programme prepares delegates for the AfriLead 2 programme, and has been embraced with great excitement by the delegates.
