Overview

Africa is the continent of the future. The exciting progress seen in many African nations can be accelerated by using an African mode of leadership,which is predicated on the unique history and culture of Africa. The author states, “Oftentimes, the very solutions we are seeking may be pulled from the inherent wisdom of traditional leaders, which can then be tailored to respond to even the most complex modern issues.” In this book, African leadership is discussed from the perspectives of a humanistic Sage. His wide experience in African leadership and profound knowledge of the global culture helps African leaders and other leaders to see that the strategies and mechanisms for solving problems could be indeed right at our fingertips. His wisdom, expressed with clarity and fluidity, inspires readers to adopt his 25 principles of leadership. You will understand why you should use legends to inspire your followers and also learn how to twin transparency with privacy. You will glean several strategies for managing internal and external forces and use tactics to promote innovation. And you will learn so much more. The blend of Western leadership styles with the values of traditional Africa makes for a fascinating read. So make friends with the Sage, consider his thought provoking principles, and arm yourself with the new African leadership for business success! Like a CEO said, “I have learned, about the various leadership styles: authoritarian, paternalistic, laissez-faire, democratic, transactional, and transformational, with each style being useful depending on the context, including but not limited to, the characteristics of the team. Nonetheless, cultural and social issues defy these perfect descriptions. And this book, replete with so many refreshing insights, helps us to understand that our values can be translated into highly effective leadership styles.” This book seeks to enhance African leadership based on African traditional mores and norms which are still deeply ingrained and rooted in the psyche of Africans, and in the psyche of persons of African descent Diaspora, who live in other regions of the Global Village of today. It also provides insights for successful leadership and tailored management approaches for foreigners planning or developing business in “African context” for sustainable success .
