3. How do you structure your work days from waking up to going to sleep?

My plate is actually full but developing a long time work plan and schedule helps alot. The first step is to be clear of what you want to achieve Ina given time. Then stick to the plan and good work ethic

4. What's a recent leadership lesson you've learned for the first time or been reminded of?

Success is not a splint but a marathon. Be discipline because if you are not committed to your cause, you will certainly achieve nothing significant. There will be disappointments, but you have to carry on

5. What's one book that has had a profound impact on your leadership so far? Can you please briefly tell the story of how that book impacted your leadership?

"Raising myself from failure to success in Sales" by Frank Bertger and "The Greatest Salesman in the World" by O G Mandino.

They have taught me resilience, discipline and salesmanship

6. If you could only give one piece of advice to a young leader, what would you say to them?

Believe in yourself and your vision. Educate yourself in that subject then take aggressive action

7. What is one meaningful story that comes to mind from your time as a leader, so far?

Leading citizens of Malawi in demanding their right to Development, challenging the political leadership from self-centeredness to act in the best interest of the citizens. This provoked enormous threats from the political leadership but because I believed in what I was doing, I carried on. This resulted in registering great successes. Great public sector reforms have been done. Access to Information Bill was passed and many more
