Lead Africa Now (LAN) Initiative, a non-governmental, non-profitable organisation, aimed at raising students, professionals, business leaders and political leaders, who will positively reposition Africa on the global map through capacity building and active stakeholders engagement, is set to equip, at least, one million young Africans with leadership skills.

The LAN flagship programme, #LANChampion, a leadership development mass action will strives virally to produce one million visionary and effective leaders on the African Continent by 2030.

At the heart of the initiative is a free hybrid 90-minute leadership acceleration workshop that will be held across 54 countries in Africa.

Chief Executive Officer of Rellies Works, Leadership Development Strategist and founder of the LAN initiative, Kemi Ogunkoya said there seems to be an invincible, yet obvious leadership vacuum waiting to be filled, evident in African enterprises and nations – a Leadership deficit.

She noted that through the initiative, national, regional and institutional barriers to effective leadership would be bridged.

LAN, through her leadership interventions will provide mass leadership development training, fellowship programmes, mentorship pairing and mindset makeover sessions for young Africans between the ages of 18 and 40.

Ogunkoya believes that a lot of Africans do not step into their leadership potential because of a number of myths surrounding leadership, saying without effective leadership, there can be no true growth in Africa.

The 90-minute workshop, she said, will help participants demystify the concept of leadership in the various areas of life and help them step into their place of power and success.

“The programme also equips participants with practical blueprints for in-depth leadership development using the Dozen Model leadership framework, a revolutionary leadership development blueprint she curated,” she added.
