Dinapama Manufacturing and Supplies which strives to be a modern, diverse and unique manufacturing company of choice in Namibia and beyond borders recently held a three day intervention for their staff at Rock Lodge a few kilometres outside Windhoek. The purpose of this intervention was to empower the staff to find the leader within them. In addition the workshop was aimed at advancing the management and leadership styles of each worker.
Mr. Dawie and Dr. Chrisna Fourie the owners of Rock Lodge facilitated the intervention which focused mostly on the essence of leadership within a large manufacturing company such as Dinapama and how each of these leadership dimensions can be linked to the biblical principles. Mr. Dawie Fourie reiterated the essence of a soft heart and a tough mind as a winning formula for any successful business. He continued to narrate the life stories and business lessons he learned from late Mr. Gerrit Hanekom (Former Minister of Environment & Tourism of Namibia) and how he changed his outlook on life. Other critical and noteworthy topics discussed at this intervention were the importance of social and emotional intelligence and how we should at all times strive to put ourselves in the shoes of others. Ms. Anna Marie Philander a well renowned life coach reminded the trainees on the importance of forgiveness, regardless of who is right or wrong.
The trainees also took part in various obstacle courses which put the training they received to a test. According to Mr. David Namalenga the Managing Director of Dinapama he is very happy with the lessons the staff have learned over the duration of the training and he cannot wait to see how they will implement all lessons learned to grow the economy of the Republic of Namibia.
