Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
I see a world where regardless of one’s color, background or gender everyone is appreciated for who they are and are afforded equal opportunity to make their unique contribution in this world. I dream of a world where everyone is helped to discover their purpose, unleash their potential and achieve their dreams with ease. My vision of a world which works for everyone is a world where the world becomes a global platform for everyone to display their talents and maximize their potential, and make their unique impact.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
They are a number of things which are pressing issues facing the world today, poverty, diseases, wars etc, but all these are just symptoms, the real pressing problem facing the world today is the lack of leadership, which we might call leadership crisis, things are what they are because of lack of leadership. “Everything falls and rises on leadership”, lack of leadership is manifested through what we see happening in our surroundings. The chaotic and pathetic state of the world we see today it’s a clear reflection of leadership crisis the world is facing today. Our biggest problem the lack of accountable leaders. When we solve the leadership problem we have solved the problems which the world is facing today.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
These pressing problems can be best solved by helping world and influential leaders to build accountable systems and structures. Solving leadership problems will automatically solve the pressing problems facing the world today. In some parts of the world there’s human abuse, and human rights are not respected at all because we have leadership crisis, there’s a need to develop leaders who will provide answers and solutions to the pressing issues which the world is facing today. We need to unite and put an effort to work together and make accountability structures which will make the world a better place. Leadership is an antidote for the pressing problems facing the world today
