Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
World over, there is need for more peace, love, growth, wealth, health, education and so on. A world that works for everyone is where individuals are granted the minimum opportunities to acquire more in the fields described above. It a world where development matches with preservation of the basics of life for both humans, plants and Animals.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
It is Leadership! John Maxwell affirms it when he says that “everything rises and falls on leadership.” The world today is challenged poverty (even in the urban centers), disease, systemic corruption, poor hygiene due to poor waste management, poor quality services and service delivery, inadequate clean water supply. Pope Francis I, while addressing teachers in Ecuador told the them how much they had succeeded in teaching all the physics, chemistry, history and art but failed to teach children how to relate with the environment. To him this was the cause of environmental degradation. World over many leaders have great qualification but the prior mentioned problems have persisted, the transactional leadership model has failed we now ought to adopt the Transformational Leadership model that begins with the transformation of the leaders themselves to take people to the next level of growth. Otherwise, all the problems are as a result of Bad Governance.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
First, there is need to develop people who will address the current needs. Character formation should be at the center of raising such men and women. From personal experience and work, the girls and boys who went through our mentoring sessions and completed the course, have stood to challenge status quo- they do things differently. The ideal is if the CEO of an organization is trans-formative enough, then his followers will too. Good followers make good leaders, young leaders should be taught to be good followers before they are loaded with great leadership challenges. In history, the story of the Sabre-tooth curriculum was very popularly used and being educated and trained was seen as all relative to the time period in which you live, where you are, and who you\’re with. The idea is by creating people in accountability groups where they learn to do things for the sake of others and not for their own good and that is Servant Leadership.
