Registrar proffers solution to leadership deficit in tertiary institutions
Registrar, Redeemers University, Ede, Mr. Olukayode Akindele has identified mentoring, coaching, and networking as panacea to leadership deficit confronting the tertiary education system in the country.
Akindele, who disclosed this at a three-day international registry workshop organised by Redeemer’s University, said oral traditions and studies have shown that credible leaders are products of quality mentoring, networking, and coaching by other great leaders.
According to him, leaders prepare the upcoming ones for positions of responsibility.
Akindele said to have a credible leadership; there must be a commitment to excellence and zero tolerance for rumour mongering.
He further indicated that there must be a willingness to give helping hands, strong linkages with colleagues, investing in personal growth and development, and regular assessment of self through public opinion.
The registrar noted that where there is a leadership deficit, there would be a lack of accountability, abuse of power, ambiguity, lack of priority, and distrust within the organisation.
