Leading by example

  1. 1. LEADING BY EXAMPLE; becoming the leader you want others to follow. PRESENTED BY SCOTT ODIGIE

It has 50% of the world's gold, most of the world's diamonds and chromium, 90% of the cobalt, 40% of the world's potential hydroelectric power, 65% of the manganese, millions of acres of untilled farmland, as well as other natural resources. Despite its natural wealth, Africa is home to the world's most impoverished and abused people. African leaders are quick to blame the legacy of colonialism, others accuse its neo- colonial dimension, and some others pose culture, climate and bio-geographic factors as the explanation to the ?why? of the African problems.
