The PiPL (Personal, Interpersonal & Professional Leadership) model
PiPL perspective entails a study of the awareness of the fundamental problems facing mankind in the context of their personal realm, their relationships with people, and their professional environment. PiPL confirms the ability and potential of all human beings, irrespective of race, colour, gender or creed (a model specifically designed for South-African and/or African circumstances).
Humans can excel and succeed, in all dimensions of life – be it spiritually, physically, emotionally, intellectually, or in their relationships with people. Their freedom of choice, along with willpower, can unlock inner potential. The source of, and the utilisation of one’s potential, can be viewed from a theocentric (with God, a god or gods as focal point) or a humanistic(a system of thought that is based on the values, characteristics, and behaviour that are believed to be best in human beings, rather than on any supernatural authority) perspective.
Whichever one chooses is a personal choice. PiPL operates from generic anthropological and universal life principles which are true for all people irrespective of their beliefs or religious views. Thus, PiPL has very specific and enduring phenomenological (study of phenomena, things as they are perceived, as opposed to the study of being, the nature of things as they are), anthropological (the study of human behaviour) , psychological (relating to the mind or mental processes), and philosophical (concerned with the study of the nature of life and reality, or of related areas such as ethics, logic, or metaphysics) foundations.
The PiPL Pyramid of Leadership
With regard to these, PiPL concerns itself with facilitation which is primarily a present- and future-oriented form of intervention.
The aim of a PiPL approach is: Personal Mastery: Potential realisation, finding purpose and meaning in life, total wellness and balance in one’s life dimensions.
Interpersonal Mastery: Understanding and living the essence of sound relationships.
Professional Mastery: Finding fulfilment in work, responsibility, commitment, acknowledgement, performance and an effectiveness orientation.
