For process-driven and risk adverse organisations there is no precedent or ‘best practice’ manuals to navigate these stormy waters.
But for the progressive and the far-sighted there is an exciting opportunity. Now is the time to broaden horizons and press ahead whilst those around them remain frozen with nervous inertia.
Nothing could be truer for Africa.
With the world’s gaze still looking at South Africa after the World Cup, it also comes at a time when many African nations have responded robustly to the global economic pressures. There is a distinct and unwavering feeling that Africa’s time has finally come.
Botswana lies at the heart of this remarkable progress. Modern, progressive, transparent and prosperous, it has become the benchmark for many around it to aspire to.
Botswana, from a distance, appears to be one of the biggest transformation success stories in Africa, moving from a British colony 50 years ago to a safe and secure state today. Yet finding diamonds on declaring independence has hidden some of her business fragilities.
The Inspired Leaders Network has been very close to Botswana now for a number of years and has developed the same frustrations as huge swathes of local business leaders within Gaborone that know there is still huge potential to be realised.
The stage is now set to take it up another level.
Botswana is a now a thriving nation of managers; a wealthy country that has had little need to foster entrepreneurialism and innovation. Yet it is these dynamic traits that could propel the nation from good to great – the cornerstones of an initiative to make the country’s commercial offering ‘unique, special and different’.
The answer lies with leadership. World class leadership at that.
Now is the chance to change the ‘civil service’ culture prevalent across the country, and introduce an entrepreneurial flair to a nation perhaps lacking the ‘cut and thrust’ spirit of enterprise that would add an extra dimension to the success enjoyed so far. After all, it is no coincidence that there are very few self-made millionaires in Botswana.
As the old truism goes, ‘If you want to make any lasting changes, then these changes must come from the top’.
Well this is an unparalleled chance for YOU to break the mould and set foot on a transformational journey.
Change begins now.
Enter the Inspired Leaders Network.
