about us

The Ethics & Leadership Institute (ELI) was founded in 1996 by Leon and Elsabe Diederichs, both specialists in training and development. In 25 years, the business grew as our specialist team expanded to cover a broad-scope of business development services across various sectors. Three core services are provided including enterprise development, fund administration and people development. Services are provided in both South Africa and abroad for a range of clients including development agencies, corporate clients and government departments. ELI advocates ethical decision making and leadership and is a member of the Ethics Association of South Africa. 


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.
