Niyi Adesanya Leadership Bootcamp has submitted that headship is not coercive but won based on seven critical laws of credibility, creativity, communication, culture, courage, collaboration and compassion.
The convener, Niyi Adesanya, who spoke during the fifth edition of the programme, at the weekend in Lagos, observed a gaping deficit in leadership, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Adding that a law can be used to suspend a law but can’t be used to eradicate a law, hence, a leader needs to study, understand and cooperate with the 7 critical laws of leadership
He charged leaders to practise the seven leadership laws for effectiveness, purposefulness and service delivery.
Adesanya, who delivered a lecture on ‘The Intrigues of Sophisticated Leadership,’ observed: “We have a whole lot of situations staring at our faces in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa and the world as a whole. We want to equip young people, management, staff, Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) and even founders of companies to overcome every challenge. ”
Adding that sophisticated leadership is an advanced level of strategic leadership of a leader who is not intimidated by a situation, in as much as he reacts to the situation and comes back to overwhelm the situation.
Keynote speaker, Richard Nyong, pointed out leadership is influence, hence it requires courage, confidence, competence, character and service through helping others to achieve their objectives.
“People are influencing people in billions but are they showing character? Are they showing confidence?, the part of leadership of being there for people when they are not good enough for themselves is never spoken about because It’s easy for people to celebrate when on top.” He added
A speaker, Olamide Alawo, who identified leadership problems in all sectors of Nigeria’s economy, via his lecture on ‘Employees Financial Wellness,’
He urged leaders to be empathetic inorder to take care of their employees with the principles of leadership not to be taken for granted because everything rises and falls on leadership.
“Basically, every business is about people, it’s about the visioneer, the customers and also the vision drivers, who are the employees, and most times some employers seem to forget that the employees are also as important as the customers, and we try to make them see that, they need to make the employees happy, when you make the employees happy, the customers are also happy.” He added, via his lecture on ‘Employees Financial Wellness,’ charged leaders to be empathetic.
