Transforming Young Leaders for Maximum Impact


Integrity is doing ordinary things in extraordinary ways. It is pearl for diligent and consist in choice field of life. It is not cheap but costly to earn. As a leader aspiring for greatness integrity should be your watch word sacrifice should be your chosen path and consistent your habits. Many people thinks integrity only begins from those occupying position in society that’s wrong you need paradigm shift, because it begins from you as parents your children can explain better on your dealing’s then to a group your peers should give good reports on your felt impact. Of course as a leader your reputation is at stake when you chose to ignore the urgent need for sense of accountability to people who elected you to power. As a leader your knowledge on subject matter is yardstick to measure your plane of integrity, this is because when the value of position is ignore then abuse of power is inevitable. As young leaders we need to embrace path of integrity for nation building and sustainable development that is my token.


Often, I ask myself some strange questions and that's how I get answers or at least I have more questions, waiting for answers. There is this widespread belief that you must be able to read people as a leader. One trait necessary to fulfill that role is a keen sense of perception. They say you cannot be a truly effective leader without the ability of human observation that peeks through the lens of keenness. So behind every action of many potential leaders is the desire to acquire this sense. These people become what I call "book worms." This goes on to create another aggressive sense of faultfinding in them. They cannot just see people and events around them to be harmless. For them, there is always a connotation that must driven into everything. They almost want to place themselves in the same class with the Infinite Intelligence (as Mr. Napoleon Hill calls God.) There is an explanation for everything and if you fail to pay that much attention to them, you could be subjected to the same crucible that dislodged dignity from others. However, I have found that people want to be cared for. Let me say this and I hope you learn it and, if need be, quote me: Your altitude is directly dependent on your attitude to life and your aptitude to the issues of life. You cannot grow bigger than your inner space kept for others. You will prove your desire for a better life by how much you exemplify love and warmth. Be a warm book that people can read off from. The great leadership guru,John Maxwell once said "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." This is the missing link in the world we have today. And I can dare say we created it to be so. However, if we choose a different line of action then we can change the narrative. Action Points: Make up your mind to add the quality of 'warm book' to your 'bookworm' life. Show people how much you care at all time. Don't let it be in election scenario only. The people you lead need to know that you care Uzoma Chigozie is a medical doctor cum relational intelligence coach. He has been involved in teaching people leadership and relationship principles.

Sometime in the past, when it was found out that his hand helped to push the ball past the goal line, this man said "It is the hand of God." His name was Diego Maradona. There was a time in history when nearly every footballer wanted to be like Diego. He was a legend in the game. He was massively respected by the big names of the game. Many know his public life. How he went from being one of the best player to grace the game to a great manager of the Argentine team. During his football career, he lifted Serie A title twice and UEFA cup with the Italian side, Napoli. He was a man who carried the hand of God but wasn't much in the hand of God. He struggled with drugs. On one occasion, he was stripped of his medal because he tested positive to a banned drug. A spectacular event was when he was tested positive to ephedrine after an Argentine victory over Nigeria. I remember this story back then and how I felt gloomy because he was my biggest player. The speculation that ephedrine masked the hard drug Diego was involved with was a big nightmare for him. He was this close to a career death. However, Professor Taylor, of Baylor College of Medicine, pointed out that ephedrine actually sped up the elimination of the cocaine and this added more weight to the charge that he wanted to conceal his doping addiction. In all these, Diego had to stand alone to face the music. He had to find a way to quell the quagmire. He rested the hand of God on his head but didn't rest in the hand of God. Maradona is now late due to a heart condition which has similar clinical features with asthma that is managed with ephedrine. I may want to think that he was self-medicating because of asthma. Perhaps, he was using it to treat a probable narcoleptic disorder. (You remember when Diego walked around with slitlike eyes.) But whatever it was, Diego is no longer here. He has gone to rest in the hand of God. No longer will the media houses make massive sales because of his plight. He went through it all alone. Rest in peace Diego Armando Maradona. Lessons: 1. In life, you stand alone to fight your battles. 2. Seek help when you need it. This is, perhaps, the biggest because as mortals we often want to act the Hercules who never needs help but gives it to the weak. 3. Remember that in your suffering, you are helping someone somewhere to gain more wins. They could be the media houses or an individual.


Few days after I checked into a room at the National Stadium Abuja (Package B) which happened to be the venue for the maiden edition of Ambassadors Leadership Programme, I decided to get myself a snack from the nearby stores within the stadium on this bright Sunday evening. The stores were a stone throw from the stadium facility where we stayed. After I had bought my snack and was heading back to my lodge, I saw some six or seven Asian guys. They looked more like Chinese guys. They had just arrived in their sport outfits with a basketball in hand, ready to display their prowess. One threw the ball on the board and it was then the others discovered that there was no rim. I tried to direct their attention to another court but they also discovered that there were no rims on that one. The discovery discouraged them and they entered their black Toyota SUV and drove off. When they left, one of the shopkeepers told me that the sport area was still under construction. In his words "If you look around, you will see work going on. The court has not met the presidential standard yet that is why they removed the rim." Amazingly, I didn't notice any spectacular renovation except for some bricks I saw some men lay on another some days ago and that work could not affect the use of the sport facility. The spectators' stand of the court was ready. The rim stand was in place. The court markings were intact. But there was no rim and the excuse was that it hadn't met the presidential standard. This incident quickly brought to my mind the attitude of sluggishness that is prevalent in government. This stadium has been in existence for very many years and yet there is a flimsy excuse that would get it nonfunctional through disuse. Actually, this attitude should have caused us to move fast had we considered it as a slug in the eyes. However, there seem to be many slouches who slouch on a sofa watching others act. I remember coming back from my office one evening and a little insect flew into my right eyes. That single incident sent running around, looking for who would help me out. I wasn't showing my teeth like in the picture. It was a matter of who would help me and if I found someone who seemed unhelpful, I left him. My desire is to see my country get back on the map. I desire for my country to get out of her nap. Therefore, I solicit for the young and the old to yield themselves to effect a change no matter small around where you live. Action Point: Think of something small you would start that would affect others positively and consistently do it irrespective of irresponsibilities around you. Think of the areas where you seem weak and ask for help. When you play your part, you are contributing to removing the slug in our eyes.

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to call God on the phone? Few people may have entertained that idea some time in their life. The idea seems exciting especially if you imagine the idea in a setting when there are hand held phones. That setting was some decades ago. However, let's imagine it differently. Imagine you went to church one of those rare Sundays you do and you met somebody who introduced himself as God. The first response you probably would give is "It's a lie." However, he ignores your unbelief and tells you to ask for a thing right then. You asked for your headache to be gone and it did. Then you exchanged some pleasantries with him and he gave you his phone number which you quickly saved as "my Pure Jackpot." On getting home, you quickly sent him a WhatsApp chat which read "Hello God." Then you went to Facebook to look for him and, voila, you saw his account and you sent a friend request. You didn't try Twitter and Instagram because you thought he wouldn't be interested in the cruelty and merchandise exported in those avenues. One..Two...Three days passed before he replied your Hello God. You thought "May he is busy." But you also imagined that he should have be keen to reply you first before any other thing. Then you managed to say "How are you doing, Sir?," and another 96 hours slipped away before he replied with an emotionless 'Fine'. Your request on Facebook was accepted after two years. I could almost say with certainty that you wouldn't have the fortitude to chat him again. This is basically the same thing some people do in their life and they wonder why they are ever stuck in one spot. We disregard some of the people God sent our way to help us. You draw a 'scale of assessment' that you subject everyone to. Most people would only respond to you if they have a need you could solve for them. Long ago, I invited a young man to an event which could have changed his life financially had he taken the opportunity but he turned it down immediately. His life is yet to change significantly. Many people fail in engaging their friendship proactively and therefore postpone the day of divine visitation for either themselves or others. Imagine someone were in a dire need and could die in a few seconds if you didn't help. Would the person live or die? Would the person get your help on time? Think about that. Sometimes, we say if it is important to him then he should call me and we never think that the means they used to reach us may be the only saving means for them. Action Point: Think about the friends you have and how much you could affect their lives with a simple text or a quick chat. Send it now without fail.

Many people are only thoughtful about themselves than others. It is much easier for anybody to esteem himself or herself better than the others. And because of this, a certain pattern of thinking has been created. Nearly everyone's thoughts are confined within the perimeter of an unwritten code of system. You don't find many people thinking outside this box in many areas of life. This is why they speak, they speak from the sublime status of their assumptions. You could hardly find those who think others are greater, others should be respected too, others should be honoured too, others should be well spoken of. There is a palpable pulse of pride among peoples of different climes.
However, for us to push the frontiers of leadership and relationship, we have to think differently. The greatest manual, the Bible, says it this way in the second chapter of Philippians "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves." The major principle for being an effective leader (to your employees, your peer, your spouse) is to ensure that you do nothing out of strife. Strife is a contention for superiority. That is, when someone sets out to show and prove himself superior to others. You cannot lead a people or a spouse until they know you have a heart large enough to contain them and not keen to show them you are superior. Why our nation, our relationship is not getting better is simply because of this issue. Those within are not thinking beyond themselves and as a result, they have become the 'box'. A leader is simply a servant. Leadership is a responsibility, not a title and until we think outside the 'box', every problem will be a dress for us instead of an issue to be fixed. There is a lowliness of mind required for leadership and relationship. You must be a leader with the lowliness of mind to exhibit the thoughtfulness that is emphasizes leadership. When we value and esteem the other person, we build a world that does not consider our resources but our impact. It is then we can have the world we dreamed of. *Action Point* : Look for someone today and say nice things to them in the midst of your own challenges
