We at CALD observe that there is a colossal demand for leadership at all levels in Africa. The opportunities the continent holds and the challenges it faces in the political, social and business spheres call for leaders with high professional and moral excellence who can serve communities, organizations and nations with a spirit of stewardship and responsibility.
In relation to this, we hold the firm belief that leadership development is a cross-cutting solution for the complex challenges with which Africa is grappling. Developing strong, ethical leaders can result in the building of personal dreams, the leveraging of remarkable team achievements, the transformation of societal culture and the leapfrogging of the national economy and beyond.
We realize that there is an enormous potential for leadership, change and growth in both individuals and organizations. Nurturing and catalyzing the leadership that resides in individuals at all levels sets the stage for ‘predictable miracles’ to materialize in institutions and communities. If “the leader within” individuals is nurtured and developed, breakthrough results and sustainable growth will inevitably follow. A wise investment in the leadership capacity development of teams will enable them to build great organizations and culture.
We also underscore that leadership emanates from a choice and a way of being, and can be cultivated until new patterns of thinking and good habits are formed and become part of one’s own nature. Such practices will then enable us to respond to complex challenges with more resilience and adaptability, and hence, achieve remarkable and sustainable results that will benefit many.
Developing leadership capabilities of individuals and teams needs a consuming PASSION, relentless DEDICATION and deep CARE for the growth of others. It requires that we carry on the age-old African wisdom of UBUNTU, which is grounded on the spirit of mutual benefit and collective growth. This insight coupled with the solid experience and knowledge of our team at CALD are what we believe will yield cutting edge solutions for your leadership development gaps and needs. This is what we stand for and what we promise to offer.
We reverently approach each individual, team and organization saluting the “giant leader within them”!
