Leadership through dialogue. Kgotla principles are, according to Martijn de Liefde, powerful tools for decision making. He outlines how he turned this indigenous Botswana knowledge into a business model with clients like Rio Tinto, KLM, Rabobank among others. For De Liefde Botswana is an attractive business destination. He walks the talk because he’s currently moving his worldwide headquarters of the Kgotla Foundation from Amsterdam to Gaborone. Kgotla is an open dialogue technique that has been used in Botswana for centuries. The Kgotla Foundation uses these techniques to help leaders and organisations deal with complex problems.
