career management career transition leadership interview legacy purpose Mar 07, 2024



Thokozile Lewanika is a coach, speaker and facilitator with a rich leadership career as a talent executive at Absa Group, Discovery Group and Novartis, and an organisational performance expert at McKinsey & Company. In Part 2 of our conversation, we explore the shifting motivation behind her career choices from primarily solving for making an impact to increasingly solving for happiness. She’s bravely transcending her identity as a high achiever, redefining what is considered a “worthy” career and creating a legacy that she can be proud of.

Topics discussed in Part 2:

* How Thokozile has made career choices, her driving motivation and her golden thread

* The conundrum of being a C-suite executive who does not enjoy managing people

* Letting go of titles and role levels so that we can embrace a more expansive identity and create lives that will make us happy

* The legacy she wants to leave behind and the one thing she wants her children to have learned from her
