INTRODUCTION:

Recent Leadership literatures argue strongly that leaders are made not born, and if they are made, there has to be strategic effort to create them. Leaders are not necessarily the ones on top, but those who participate, make and shape organisations, institutions or societies. In modern world, those that influence a group of people to achieve certain objectives are the leaders. This underpins the relevance of every person in a group or community. Leadership is not peculiar or subjected to positions in organisations, institutions or society. Everybody can be a leader, but that depends on whether the person has what it takes to be that leader.

Professionals and Young people have mental and physical stamina and innovations to drive the required change in society, and that has to be complemented with strategic leadership and personal development training to make them better leaders. Acquiring education in school is not sufficient to make better leaders, they have to be trained and tracked beyond the classrooms. Life pose many evolving challenges that static school curriculum may not address or prepare the emerging leaders to face it.

The Leadership and Personal Development Programme is an initiative that fills development gaps and prepares professionals to be more effective, efficient and professionals in their places of work and social environment.  The programme is designed to help participants realise their strengths and weaknesses and enhance their leadership, professional and development skills.

THE GAPS:

It was discovered that emerging leaders especially in Africa may lack certain global competitive skills required in the 21st century economic, social, and political spectrums. Young people are not necessary leaders of tomorrow but leaders of today, and they shape society and its future. Few of the gaps that are largely identified among professionals and emerging leaders in Africa include but not limited to the followings:

a.       Lack of expression and communication skills
b.      Low self-esteem, fear and lack of self confidence

h.      Egoism and inexperience
i.        Lack of adaptability
j.        Lack of big dreams and ambitions
k.      Poor preparation for job markets and uninformed perceptions
l.        Unemployment and dependency

Jeff Boss once said “The challenge of staying relevant in today’s fast-paced and hyper–connected world can be daunting if you don’t know when to move forward, when to stay put or when to adapt.” Young people in African must be willing to adopt and move forward to outcompete their counterparts in other continents. They must realise their weakness and be ready to improve.

  9. [Free ebook] The Real Magic of Success & Abundance

    I'm crazily excited to share with you [this new book] written by my friend Eddie Sergey, who is a truly self-made and financially abundant entrepreneur.

    Not only did he manage to overcome all the disadvantages he suffered in his childhood, he is now living the life of his dreams.

    A bountiful life where he feels abundant in all aspects of his life...  be it health, wealth or love.

    As I read the book, my mind was literarily shifted from the depths of winter into an invincible summer.

    What's exciting:

    - The FIRST STEP you must take to be a creator of your own destiny... where success can be ANYTHING you can envision (Pg. 5)

    - This ONE THING you must expunge from your life if you wish to attain abundance. (See Chapter 2)

    - The "P______ Effect" and how YOU can harness this to shape your destiny. (Pg. 13)

    - You're stuck with the brain you were born with? Wrong!! Start changing it in 17 seconds, TODAY. (Chapter 4)

    - Law of Attraction doesn't work for you? You are NOT alone! Instead of Law of Attraction, many are using this less-publicized universal law, which is FAR more powerful and reliable! (Pg. 20)

    [Go here to download it for FREE now! ►►► CLICK HERE]

    No tricks. Just real techniques for success and abundance.

    Eddie was planning to list this white-hot ebook on Amazon.com and Kindle for $37. But I convinced him to let me review it and send it to many.

    So he agreed to let me send out this ebook (valued at $37) to you for FREE!

    So, hurry on to grab a copy of this sizzling ebook before it is listed on Amazon or Kindle!
