By creating my own company and leading people recruited to work on the vision and mission of the company.


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


I get up and say my prayers especially reading psalms. I get my bath, prepare my breakfast then head for work. I start my day by starting my work with all the 5 mins tasks, precising tasks and previous unfinished tasks. Get my lunch by 1pm then commence my daily task at 2:30pm. I close my day by 6:30pm and head home to family for supper and I go to bed.

ACCA managing people. The book that outlines the duties, tasks and responsibilities of a manager and how he motivates, manages and influence people to be in their full potentials.


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


That they should read books that impact their intellect to lead and influence people to stand up to their best. Leadership is not born. We have to learn and cultivate the attitude to be strong persons with the right purpose in life and also they should cultivate empathy traits to be able to deal with people of different cultures and backgrounds.


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


Accountability is a good astuce to be able to lead people. We are what we say we are and not the other way round. We should be impartial. We I got to make some decisions from my time working at a bank where my boss would only accord favors to people who she loved and honored her caprices. When she went for birth leave, I had to accord same priveleges to everyone that created some backlash between she and myself. But at the end of the day, Leaders have to be impartial, she empathy, motivate their peer s to measure up to them so that when not around, people speak out and label you as a great influencer.
