  • Leadership: Love in Action  “We are coming into leadership (whether we like it or not) in a time of serious disruption of the status quo, which is a massive opportunity or a great stumbling block, depending on how we see it; our 'PERSPECTIVE' is very critical. My take is that we still have an old paradigm definition of leadership where we have a winner-take-all-lord-over-others mentality of who should be called a 'leader' . We need to change that paradigm; that's our first challenge as emerging leaders, writing a 'new story, a new narrative„. The emerging leaders should be exceptional story writers and impeccable story tellers”. David Wainaina, Kenya.
