just a guy changing the world

I’m Blessing. I’m in love with Ingrid and married to her. I love people and interrogating all things leadership. I’m trying to decode leading myself and, others. Engaging on issues affecting the world is a passion of mine. Communicating, primarily through writing and speaking.

Life and leadership. Full of questions. Blogger, writer, growing leader and communicator.

I have the great privilege of being owner / proprietor and chief editor of ChurchMag. A resource focused on helping churches, non-profits and be awesome in their mission.

I’ve also been working hard to release potent words as I try to write books. Still some way to go to publishing but getting closer each day.

I consider myself an avid reader and play squash (the sport). Great coffee is imperative — no compromise.

I studied and worked in IT. Currently a student of theology. I worked as a Team Director and Digital Media Manager in Johannesburg, South Africa before moving to Cape Town. I’m privileged to have led teams in different contexts as well as volunteers.

(You haven’t led until you lead people who, in a sense, don’t really have to follow you, but do so by choice). I have the privilege of serving in the world’s largest and most significant enterprise. More later…

This blog is a result of the lessons I’ve learned and still in the process of learning. It is, in sense, also a realtime memoir, as I grapple with leading myself and others.

Challenging life and leadership practices characterises a fair amount of the content.

Some of the posts, in fact most of them, are a result of my failure as a leader in varied contexts. Perhaps a journal of life and leadership experiences; notes to self. I hope they’re useful to you and that we can grow together on our journeys in life and leadership.

I am also Jonah.
