Personal Transformation

The Lifework Leadership (L2) class is an incredible opportunity for leaders to significantly and strategically connect with their peers in relationships that will enrich their personal and professional lives. The Community developed is a highlight for many. As a lifetime member of the Lifework programme, Alumni are always invited to remain engaged. They can stay connected to the “family” and continue to learn, grow and develop, through favourite speakers and new experiences each year. On top of this, leaders also gain a broader perspective of their place in the world and are challenged to view their workplace as a calling and place of incredible power to positively affect others.

Enhancing Companies

L2 Alumni are challenged to be compassionate leaders of high integrity, humility and generosity. These qualities in a leader will be invaluable assets to any organization.  We have continued to see our Alumni leading companies with international scope and have a seat at the highest levels of numerous organisations. Connected to the Lifework family, leaders will have the ability to connect to a wide network of local leaders and their companies as well as being a part of the global Lifework Leadership network of affiliates.


Towards the end of 2014 a group of business leaders came together with a dream to develop a strong community of Christian business leaders in Pretoria. This dream started to materialise in January 2015 when Lifework Leadership welcomed its first class. Since then we have seen that each group of leaders every year had an incredible journey where they saw God work in and through them in extraordinary ways.

We invite you to experience Lifework Leadership so that together we can have a transforming impact throughout our city in 2018!

It’s a privilege to see marketplace leaders discover or confirm their callings and accept the challenge to be salt and light in their families and organisations. Lifework raises city changers in the business community.
