Every great success story is mostly the result of visionary leadership, collaborative working, and a passion for bringing about positive change. This story is no different. Recently I had the privilege of visiting this forested area in Kisumu , Kenya, that once had no first class hospital and was once deprived of electricity and saw firsthand how it was transformed. It’s amazing what can be accomplished when people come together with a common goal. In this case, we’ll take a look at how one visionary leader brought electricity to an area that had no electricity—and in doing so, turned it from a forest into a city. At first, people thought it was an impossible task, but this leader achieved the impossible and changed a community forever. We’ll also explore how collaboration and negotiation with local leaders to donate part of their land created a win-win situation that led to the construction of a hospital and the uplifting of the living standards of the community.
The best version of yourself is different for everyone. It’s a combination of self-awareness, personal growth, and having a vision for the future.
Is leadership over rated or is it true that success or failure of any initiative, service, business, system and organisation is down to the quality of its leadership?
