Defining Success as a Leader [Photo]

I agree that #success is not just about what you accomplish / achieve solely in your life, it is also about what you inspire others to do. One of the best instruments to inspire / influence others positively is your ears and deeds, not only your tongue. How do you define success? ___ Let us connect on Twitter and Facebook. ADM

Increasing Responsibilities: Appreciation

Appreciation is one value i cherish and live with. Daily, I appreciate God for the gift of life, and for connecting me with myself and others. Do you know what joy it brings when you explore things about yourself in ways you do not expect? One of my greatest joy is realizing that a life positively lived can influence others to talk the horns of […]

Measuring Your Listening Quotient

Every great leader is a good listener. We have emphasized overtime the importance of communication in leadership development. I have learnt – through the absence of communication – how a community of vibrant thoughtful minds can become disengaged and moribund. Listening Quotient In as much as communication is important, listening is more important. Communication is faulty, if listening is phorny or ingenuine. I have witnessed […]

Get ‘Irresponsible’ – if need be!

Sometime ago, I was challenged as been irresponsible by someone I so much respect. My ‘offence’ was that I did not obey a conspicuously-wrong instruction that was given me. I apologized for my disobedience, and reinstated my commitment to doing continually, whatever is right, regardless of who benefits (or doesn’t benefit) from the consequences of my actions. In our journey as leaders, we will no […]

Defining Success: How do you define success?

How do you define success? Do you define success in terms of material possession, or the amount of money a person has in bank accounts, or the financial net worth of a person? Even though these may matter to some people, I do not find riches an equivalent of success. During a half-day private study session – on Saturday, 23rd November, 2013 – I stumbled […]

Reflective Thinking: How Often Do You Think?

I know you think! And you know / think you think. However, how much time do you dedicate to reflect on your life – your actions, inactions, values, achievements, frailties, prospect and the future? How often do you examine the pace – most importantly, the impacts – you create each day? These questions remind us of the ever-dynamic need to consciously and consistently examine how […]

Are You ‘Working Hard’ or ‘Working Smart’?

Earlier today, I read an article by David Leigh Weber – author of ‘My Life Has No Purpose’ – titled ‘You’re Not Working Hard Enough!’. Of course, the article portrayed an angle to the message i sent to some colleagues a few months back about working in relations to your unique strength. I have – overtime – heard parents telling their children to work ‘hard’ […]

Fault Finding or Panacea Placing?

Oh! What a pleasant weekend. I had a great time speaking on ‘State of the Nation – Whose Fault’ at a Royal Banquet Against Corruption organised by Eagle Ping Crusaders against economic and financial corruption. I however believe in panacea placing, rather than fault finding. Thus, as part of the most important arm of governance (the people), we should seek remedy – instead of faults-, […]

Interested in Taking Initiative? Answer these Questions!

I have been an advocate of young people taking initiative to solve societal challenges instead of just complaining, sitting, and waiting unendingly for government and others. This is why taking initiative is encouraged through what we call the ‘Impact Community Project’ – an essential component of our youth leadership academy – Studership. Over time, after discussing with some other young persons at various fora, i […]

Exactly a week ago, i was sharing with some emerging leaders from across Nigeria, Ghana, Republic de Benin and Togo on ‘Integral Leadership’ at the #Studership 2.0 Leadership Summit (Pictures here). I was delighted at the radiation of ‘senses’ of commitment as we exchanged ideas, on personal growth and leadership development – revolving around vision, values, ethics, passion for continuous learning and understanding purpose.
