about us

The Ethics & Leadership Institute (ELI) was established in South Africa in 1996 by Leon and Elsabe Diederichs, both specialists in training and development. In 2005, after many successful projects, Leonard Diederichs came onboard as Managing Director. In the past 30 years, the business grew as our specialist team expanded to cover a broad-scope of business development solutions which spanned across various sectors, such as Prof. Bernie van Zijl who joined us in 2017. ELI has implemented many projects focusing on people and professional development, business and management development, organisational development, and life (soft) skills training.


From this, the ELI Group was formed in 2016 as the collective holding company that manages our targeted business solutions, such as enterprise development, fund administration and management, and people development. Today, the ELI Group offers businesses project management services, tailor-made onsite business process consulting and human capital development, to name a few, by experienced, innovative and results-orientated individuals and teams. We have an extensive track-record of successful projects which demonstrates our substantial experience and commitment to excellence in delivering these services to our clients.
