About the Authors
Dr Louise van Rhyn holds a Doctorate in Complex Social Change and has founded a few entrepreneurial organisations. Her approach to change is shaped by more than 30 years of working as an Organisational Change and Leadership Development practitioner.
In 2010 she launched Partners for Possibility (PfP), an innovative national building and leadership development process for business and school leaders. Business leaders develop their capacity to lead in a complex and unfamiliar environment by becoming a co-learning and co-action partner to a school principal. So far more than 2,200 leaders across South Africa have benefited from the programme and they’ve won many national and international awards for their innovative approach to enable business leaders to make a significant contribution in education while developing their leadership skills.
