    THE METHODOLOGY: The African Methodology for creating the environment favourable to active thinking, dialogue, engagement, learning, development and resolving conflicts.

    BACKGROUND: The LEKGOTLA Way, our HERITAGE! We marked the COMETSA 20th Anniversary Celebrations in 2017 with the launch of the monthly COMETSA PMS LEKGOTLA Networks. These take a form of presentations, dialogues, conversations, and questions and answers format facilitated by COMETSA Methodologists, Experts, Associates and Partners.

    RATIONALE: In this fast changing world, it is impossible to remain at the required level of knowledge, expertise, and information without formal and informal continuous professional development. As a human capital, management and leadership development and consulting company we saw a need develop, coordinate and host such networks. Initially these networks were hosted live in the Gauteng Province, South Africa. We are now holding them virtually via Zoom. We are waiting anxiously to bring back face to face sessions, in combination with the virtual sessions, and take them to the other provinces of South Africa in the form of tours, and to the rest of the African continent and the world.

    FACILITATORS: We are in need of Facilitators, Champions, Consultants and Volunteers who would like to undergo our monthly training and be qualified in the COMETSA PMS LEKGOTLA Facilitation Methodology. On completion the participants will be signed off as being competent. If they take the membership of COMETSA Friends & Supporters Club NPO they will also be given the opportunity to become the Business Associates of COMETSA GoC International (Pty) Ltd. That will give them the opportunity to work with COMETSA on projects that require the LEKGOTLA Facilitation Methodology.

    THE METHODOLOGY: The African Methodology for creating the environment favourable to active thinking, dialogue, engagement, learning, development and resolving conflicts.

    BACKGROUND: The LEKGOTLA Way, our HERITAGE! We marked the COMETSA 20th Anniversary Celebrations in 2017 with the launch of the monthly COMETSA PMS LEKGOTLA Networks. These take a form of presentations, dialogues, conversations, and questions and answers format facilitated by COMETSA Methodologists, Experts, Associates and Partners.

    RATIONALE: In this fast changing world, it is impossible to remain at the required level of knowledge, expertise, and information without formal and informal continuous professional development. As a human capital, management and leadership development and consulting company we saw a need develop, coordinate and host such networks. Initially these networks were hosted live in the Gauteng Province, South Africa. We are now holding them virtually via Zoom. We are waiting anxiously to bring back face to face sessions, in combination with the virtual sessions, and take them to the other provinces of South Africa in the form of tours, and to the rest of the African continent and the world.

    FACILITATORS: We are in need of Facilitators, Champions, Consultants and Volunteers who would like to undergo our monthly training and be qualified in the COMETSA PMS LEKGOTLA Facilitation Methodology. On completion the participants will be signed off as being competent. If they take the membership of COMETSA Friends & Supporters Club NPO they will also be given the opportunity to become the Business Associates of COMETSA GoC International (Pty) Ltd. That will give them the opportunity to work with COMETSA on projects that require the LEKGOTLA Facilitation Methodology.
