UKZN Leadership Programme Sharpens Business Acumen

UKZN Leadership Programme Sharpens Business Acumen
Ms Slindile Ntshangase from eThekwini Municipality graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma in Leadership.

A firm believer in continuous professional development, Ms Slindile Ntshangase added the Postgraduate Diploma in Leadership to her list of academic qualifications when she graduated at UKZN in May.

Ntshangase, a line manager in eThekwini Municipality’s Solid Waste Department (DSW) said that ongoing professional development enhances one’s skills and enables one to stay abreast of new developments in one’s field. This is vital in the fast-evolving environmental sector in which she operates.

Her duties entail planning and managing staff and resources within the city’s Inner and Outer West regions. DSW contributes to a clean and healthy environment and vibrant economy through responsible solid waste management practices, recognising solid waste as a useful resource wherever possible.

Ntshangase said the diploma enhanced her critical thinking and leadership skills: ‘The leadership knowledge will enable me to deal with volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous situations within the work place.’

The year 2022 has been marked with celebrations for the Pongola-born married mother of two as she also obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration with four distinctions from the Durban University of Technology.

Next on Ntshangase’s agenda is the Master of Commerce in Leadership at UKZN’s Graduate School of Business and Leadership.
