If honesty is a major requirement for the long term success of your organisation/nation, but your members/citizens believe cutting corners is the smart way to go, their behaviour will ultimately sabotage your well-crafted strategies and your success. #leadwell
As a leader, knowing the beliefs and values of your team members and shifting them to align with the values of your organisation/nation is priority. With time, common behaviour becomes culture. Leading with clear values removes the mystery from decision making. #leadwell
Organisational leaders should employ people whose values align with those of their organisations. However, elected officials don’t employ citizens. We need to sell the values needed for success with stories and policies, and to, most importantly, model those values. #leadwell
The ultimate question; does your organisation/nation have a compelling vision? Are the values needed to shape behaviour for the achievement of the vision clearly defined? Are you really committed to the fulfillment of the vision? #leadwell

1.I had a classmate in high school who decided beginning of one term to leave his old friends and to move with the brightest students in class. We were surprised.
2.His old friends saw it as an act of betrayal. At the end of the term, though, he was at the top of the class with his new friends. His former pals stayed in the “Association of Average Performers.”
3.Likewise, when an African adopts values that make western nations prosperous, it is common to people say he/she is now behaving like a white person. Some see it as a betrayal of African culture. It takes courage to make such changes at personal and community levels.

A Nigerian immigrant took his dad to the US on a first visit. After taking him on sight seeing for 3 days, the son said; “Daddy, you’ve not said anything. You’ve just been sighing”. The old man replied; “Our people are suffering at home but they don’t really know how bad it is”.
2. When we are raised in an environment where low quality living is the norm, (which happens in both rich and poor countries), we develop unconscious bias for mediocrity. Our normal is terribly abnormal but we don’t know.
3. Our expectations are so low leaders get away with anything. Even a good leader can’t achieve anything meaningful with such people, especially in a democracy. This is why the vision of a beautiful future is a critical need in leadership.

Many thanks to all that made contributions in response to my question on how a country can prosper by helping citizens to prosper. Here are some broad themes that emerged from the amazing contributions: #nationalprosperity
1. Educate citizens for free up to high school so they can have the character and in-demand skills needed to be productive. It gives large returns in income and counters widening inequality. #nationalprosperity
2. Create the environment for citizens to thrive and businesses to grow and scale through provision of world class infrastructure including power, water, roads, healthcare, and broadband connectivity through innovative funding. #nationalprosperity

1.Family is Important – Malachi 2:15 (NLT) – “Didn’t the LORD make you one with your wife? In body and spirit, you are His. And what does he want? Godly children from your union. So guard yourself; remain loyal to the wife of your youth.” #Family
2.Family is important because it is the primary social unit that God designed for creating and molding human beings. Family is His greatest asset on this planet. In the beginning, God created and bless the family. Gen 1:26-28 (NLT). #Family
3.We have said before that man was created in the image of God and was made powerful. God only started the creation; he did not finish the job because he created man to be his co-creator. We will not fulfil our destiny as creators if there is nothing to create. #Family

1.The Transforming Covenant 2 – 2nd Corinthians 12:9 (NKJV) – And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. #Covenant
2.This was formerly Saul of Tarsus, one man that experienced a radical change in his life. When he met Jesus the old ‘Saul’ dies, and the new ‘Paul’ resurrects. As we said last week, for you to become someone you have never been before, the old you need to die. #Covenant
3. In a blood covenant relationship with God, you and God become one. That was why Jesus said in John 14:8-9 when Philip asked him; show us the Father. He responded that if you have seen me, you have seen the Father. I pray that your presence will become God’s presence. #Covenant

1. Crisis will always come with opportunities. This is an opportunity to press the reset button; we must not waste this opportunity. I pray that you will evolve through this experience into a new person. You will conceive new vision, dream, & inspiration this season. #Covenant
2. THE COVENANT OF REST – Genesis 2:2-3 (NKJV) – “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. #Covenant
3.Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all his work which God had created and made. #Covenant
