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.

About CTL Africa

Only if we focus on our lives and develop our God-given talents can we positively impact the world and make it a better place for all.

There is the need to value every individual’s life and to holistically develop it to bring the best out of them because every life is precious and has something special to offer the world. There is a need to bridge the gap between the knowledge offered by our educational institutions and the skills necessary for success in the real world.

There is a need for leaders who add value to people and make a difference in the lives of their followers. This is what CTL Africa set up for. This is what we stand for.
