About the book

In “Water-Like Leaders and Strategy,” Dr. Nellie Swanepoel invites you on a journey where her passions for water and leadership converge into a powerful synthesis. Imagine yourself floating down a serene river, feeling the gentle yet unstoppable force of the current. This is how leadership should feel—graceful, powerful, and transformative.

As you flow through the pages, you’ll experience the wisdom of leadership through the lens of water. Picture a river carving out a majestic canyon over thousands of years, its path shaped by unwavering determination and vision.

This is the essence of true leadership. And like the mighty waterfall that cascades with decisive, powerful force, leaders must know when to take bold action.

“Dr. Swanepoel’s book is more than a guide; it’s a practical manual for modern, adaptable, and compassionate leadership. By drawing parallels between the natural water cycle and leadership cycles, she unveils the complexities and endless possibilities within organizational life.” – Dr. Deon Bester

Leaders find themselves in uncharted waters, navigating hybrid offices and the rise of artificial intelligence. This new environment challenges traditional leadership principles, blending the emotional impact of global disruptions with the efficient, sometimes impersonal nature of AI.

Our world does not only need competent leaders—it needs kind and resilient leaders, combined in one. Dr. Swanepoel’s insights will inspire you to become a transformational leader.
