Ghana needs a shift from poverty mentality – CTL Africa
The Centre for Transformational Leadership in Africa (CTL Africa) taken another giant step by scheming to organise a worldwide leadership simulcast event dubbed: “Live2Lead 2018”.
This year’s event has been themed: “Live2Lead is the SHIFT – addressing the shifts that leaders need to embrace in order to be successful and make the necessary impact”.
Speaking at the launching ceremony in Accra, the Chief Executive Officer Centre for Transformational Leadership in Africa (CTL Africa) Mr Samuel K Ayim, explained that the Live2Lead was designed to deliver the very best leadership content to inspire and motivate leaders and their teams, and also help them connect with other influencers in the community.
This he said, the event will also aid them to expand their business network with relationships that produce tangible results. “Live2Lead 2018 is being simulcast in more than 300 locations across over 30 countries,” he added.
For more than 10 years Live2Lead has been the summit of international thought leadership event and has developed and equipped thousands of leaders across the world to lead better and to add more value to their teams.
Live2Lead 2018 will be addressed by world-renowned and distinguished personalities including Carly Fiorina, Debra Searle, Daniel Pink, Tyler Perry, John Maxwell and our own Uncle Ebo Whyte.
This year, we have a special bonus for our VIP participants. They will have a night with Uncle Ebo Whyte
Mr Samuel K Ayim averred that upon all the natural and human resources the country has been endowed with Ghana still lags behind.
“How do we explain the endemic poverty among the majority of our people while a few ‘create, loot and share’ the state coffers as if they are without a conscience.
How do we explain treating our sick and vulnerable on bare concrete floors while our leaders fly abroad for medical treatment?
How do we explain pregnant women being carried on a chair to cross flooded rivers to the nearest (or shall I say the farthest) medical centre and thereby losing their babies, just because we cannot construct simple bridges to facilitate transportation?
Meanwhile, huge sums of money are squandered on ghost and uncompleted projects. How do we explain the inaction and seeming complicity of state institutions and regulators while so-called professionals bankers and their patrons and cronies drive our whole financial system into a ditch necessitating a near 12 billion Ghana Cedis bailout by the sweat of our poor farmers and ‘kayayos’?
How can we explain so-called men of God giving lotto numbers and magically conjuring cash while thousands of unsuspecting congregants, in their desperation and ignorance, flock to the so-called prophets as bees to honey,” he lamented.
This he said, Uncle Ebo Whyte will seize the opportunity to talk about his own life and the shifts he has had to make to be where he is.
And also draw lessons for other leaders and the shifts all and sundry needs to make to move from their current level of despair to where they are supposed to be.
“We need a drastic shift. We need a change, not only in mindset but also in ‘heart set’. Intellectually, we all know we are on the wrong path,” Mr Ayim stressed.
According to him, Ghana as a country needs to agree, adopt and inculcate values at all levels of national life that will help transform our nation for the better.
“We need a shift from the poverty mentality which for me is the cause of the greed and corruption that has so far characterize all levels of leadership, even in our churches,” he stated.
Registration starts at 11:30 am. The event will begin at 12:30 am and conclude at 5:30 pm on October 12. There will be a special Dinner and Talk session for VIP participants only on October 11, 2018, at the Swiss Spirit (Alisa) Hotel at 5.30 pm.

Leadership in Africa must be redefined to drive development – CTL Africa
The Centre for Transformational Leadership in Africa (CTL Africa) has urged a redefinition of leadership on the continent to bring about the needed development.
CEO of CTL, Samuel Ayim said there are issues with leadership in Ghana and other African countries because of definitions associated with the word.
In a statement issued Tuesday, he said Africans will be able to get more from their leaders if there is a redefinition of the concept of leadership.

URGENT NEED TO REDEFINE LEADERSHIP FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
A Speech by Mr Samuel Ayim, CEO, Centre for Transformational Leadership in Africa (CTL Africa )
There is an urgent need for a redefinition of the concept of leadership in Africa and to inculcate same into the national values of African states through a new curriculum of education from the basic level through to all higher levels of the educational system.
In every discussion on the development (or rather the underdevelopment) of Africa, the issue of leadership is fingered. It has almost become a cliché to cite countries like Malaysia, Singapore, and even Rwanda, as examples of where leadership has made a difference as against African countries who are still struggling under poor leadership, with its attendant avoidable economic and social tragedies.
So if leadership is recognized as the problem, for so long, why are we not able to fix it with all the intellectual and financial resources at our disposal? The answer is that the problem is deeper than merely fingering leadership. The problem lies in the very definition we put on leadership. The concept of leadership as a position, a higher position, from where all solutions should emanate, and that we should all strive to attain that position before we can make any meaningful contribution is a flawed one.
The concept of leadership as a position that should bring to the occupant the maximum personal benefit is a flawed one.
As John Maxwell (renowned leadership expert) has written and taught for years, the true meaning of leadership is influence and the highest purpose of leadership is to add value to others. True leaders do not serve their own personal interest. True leaders make a difference in their societies and in the lives of their people. True leaders aim to change the circumstance of their communities for the better. We need a new concept of leadership that says each and every one of us can lead. In other words, each of us can influence change from where we are. We do not have to wait until we are appointed or elected to a position before we start leading.
This is the concept of leadership that we should begin to adopt and inculcate as part of our national culture and attitude. We should begin to introduce this concept into our educational system from the basic level. The people who today occupy the positions of President, Minister, Chief Executive Officer etc, did not fall from the moon. They are from the society and they carry with them the national definition and attitudes of leadership. As long as all of us, as a people have a flawed concept of leadership, we can change governments a million time, but we will have the same disappointing results.
I agree with the view that the difference between poor and rich nations is not the age of the nation, nor the availability of natural or even human resources. The difference is the attitude of the people, moulded for many years by education, moral responsibility and culture.
It would be observed that the conduct of the majority of people from the rich and developed countries reveal basic principles of ethical behaviour, integrity, responsibility, respect for Laws and Order, respect by the majority of citizens towards others, the love of work and productivity, a positive attitude toward savings and investment, and punctuality.
Leadership is influence; therefore whether you are father, mother, family head, supervisor or chief executive of an organization, a driver or the president; you must set high ethical values for yourself and those you are leading and be strategically focused to succeed in your area of influence. As a leader, you need a strong character, appropriate training and skills to lead effectively.
This new concept of leadership is what Live2Lead is all about; an annual leadership program which CTL Africa in partnership with the John Maxell Company is bringing to Ghana on October 6, 2017, at the College of physicians and surgeons centre, Accra. This will be held annually to help inculcate this new concept of leadership in our people.
The event will feature four renowned world-class speakers and leaders to address a different aspect of this concept of leadership to equip participants to lead and create change with renewed passion and drive.
We are by this opportunity inviting people in all levels of leadership positions and those aspiring to leadership to come and participate in this life-changing leadership event. To participate in the Live2Lead conference kindly visit www.live2lead.ctl-africa.com.
