Moving people from a fixed mindset to a productive thinking and deployment of potentials for problem solving
2. How did you become a leader? Can you please briefly tell the story?
My leadership journey started in my Secondary School when I was appointed the School Assistant Senior Prefect, Chapel Prefect and Science Laboratories Prefect.
The trainings and coaching by the Youths Corps Members especially Mr. Taiwo and Mr. Matte ignited the Spirit of Leadership in me.
It grew from there. I later form Students' Leadership Forum that have grown to the present Teenagers and Youths Leadership and Entrepreneurship Development Organization - LEADPAC Foundation.
3. How do you structure your work days from waking up to going to sleep?
My next day begins in the evening of the previous day.
I evaluate all my activities at the end of each day. My daily set goals and the results.
At 4:30am is my quite time with my God. My day begins with my priority list that carries my day goals and the places to visit to accomplish my planned activities.
In the evening, I sit down after evening meal to evaluate my activities and write down my achievements, challenges and setbacks.

The Spirit of Leadership by Dr. Myles Munroe.
