The Publisher of Arise Afrika Magazine and foremost leadership blogger , Mr Ikechukwu Anyanwu commends Dr Linus Okorie for putting up a Leadership Summit at Owerri to educate, equip and empower Imolites AND successful hosting of Emerging Leaders Conference in Lagos
We bring to you excerpts from Summit held at Rockview Hotels Owerri;
LEADERSHIP CAPITAL BALANCE by Linus Okorie
Leadership is not manipulation. It is not by force. If someone follows you without anything and you inspire them to achieve something, you are a leader. The leader is the man that makes things happen. A leader comes into a place and when he leaves, he wants to see the place transformed. A leader inspires. The secret of becoming a global leader is to understand the word “globalization:
If you don’t say you are existing, nobody will know you are. To have a position does not mean you are a leader. To lead your life is the most important aspect of leadership. What gives leadership to you is the quality of development you give to yourself.
Make yourself so valuable.
“Is there anything that I can do for you” Invest your time. Every leader invests his time.
The speaker also threw more lights on the following:
Vision . Integrity. Passion. Innovation. Courage . Intellectual Capacity . Inspirations
Globalization: explore technologies, marketing , researching that can be used to your advantage.
Understand and know how to use the atmosphere of networking for yourself. The more people you have in your business network. The better for it.
Mobilization: It is the responsibility of the leader to mobilize. The greatest resources in this country is not oil. It is in human capital.
Communication: You cannot be a good leader without being a good communicator. You must understand both verbal and nonverbal communication. In times of crises, what makes you succed is your ability to speak.
“Develop your leadership capacity . When you gain mastery and do, that can make it happen for you”
With that the speaker suggested following books for the participants. And guess what you have the key to your success in this books. The white man would say if you want to hide anything from the black man hide it in that book. But we say to Africa let’s Arise and become readers. Readers are Leaders!!
