  8. 8. Coun-tries such as Nigeria. Yet the strong links of Nigerians to the extended family and village throughout history produce behavioral norms that explain the prevalence of favoring family and friends in handing out government jobs and contracts. What outsid-ers decry as corruption among contemporary Nigerian politicians is simply the reflec- tion of strong extended family and communal values present throughout history (Wil-son, 1996, p. 19) ‘character represents a person’s integrated pattern of responding to three basic life spheres or domains: what they will do with their lives, how they will do it, and their relations to others along the way’’ (Renshon, 1996, p. 39). Three core elements of character are: ambition, integrity, and relatedness. Ambition, Renshon notes, is the domain of initiative and action. ‘‘The basic concerns in this domain are the capacity, desire, and ability to invest oneself in accomplishing one’s purposes’’ (Renshon, 1996, p. 39). Ambi-tion is necessary for achievement and productivity, but too much ambition—or too much inadequately controlled—may result in manipulative, self-serving behavior at the expense of others, LEADERS ARE PEOPLE WITH CHARACTER IF THEY LIKE IT OR NOT. WHAT IS CHARACTER?

  12. 12. Rich vs. Poor
  13. 13. DEFINING POVERTY... Absolute poverty is defined according to an absolute minimum standard, often called the ‘poverty line’. Relative poverty means that you are poor in relation to those around you. Income poverty (‘less than a dollar a day’, for example), means that you are poor if you have less money than the defined poverty line for your country. Human poverty takes into account other factors, such as life expectancy, infant malnutrition, illiteracy and lack of food or clean water. Basic needs definitions also go beyond money, to include all the things that a person needs in order to survive – including employment and participation in society.

  15. 15. AN UNEQUAL WORLD Inequality is on the increase. In 1976 Switzerland was 52 times richer than Mozambique; in 1997, it was 508 times richer. Two hundred and fifty years ago, the richest countries were only five times richer than the poorest, and Europe only twice as rich as China or India. The rich... In 1960, the 20% of the world’s people who live in the richest countries had 30 times the income of the poorest 20%; by 1995 it was 82 times. The world’s 225 richest people have a combined wealth of over $1million million. Only four per cent of this wealth – $40 billion – would be enough for basic education and healthcare, adequate food and safe water and sanitation for all the world’s people. the 15 richest have assets that exceed the total Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of sub-Saharan Africa. the assets of the 84 richest exceed the GDP of China, which has 1.2 billion inhabitants. and poor... More than a thousand million people still live in poverty, a tenth of them in the industrialized world. Of the 4,400 million people in the Majority World, nearly 60% lack basic sanitation and more than 30% have no access to clean water. 25% do not have adequate housing. 20% have no access to modern health services. Two thousand million women are anaemic (including 55 million in the industrial world). 20% of children in the world do not attend school to grade five.
  16. 16. The main challenges to the Syrian economy are: – a lack of investments, due to Syria's highly centralized economy and lack of required economic reforms. Direct foreign investments stand at a mere 2.5 percent of GDP; – the depleting oil reserves; – the depleting and not always reliable water reserves. Syria's water supplies are used at higher rates than their replacement, and are affected by pollution, lack of water management, population growth, droughts, and Syria's relations with its neighbours Turkey and Iraq, with which it shares the Euphrate

  34. 34. I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people. Mahatma Gandhi Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other. John F. Kennedy It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership. Nelson Mandela Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things. Peter Drucker We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That's not leadership. That's not going to happen. Barack Obama Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership. Colin Powell Leadership quotes:
  35. 35. Leadership story 1:
  36. 36. A group of workers and their leaders are set a task of clearing a road through a dense jungle on a remote island to get to the coast where an estuary provides a perfect site for a port. The leaders organise the labour into efficient units and monitor the distribution and use of capital assets – progress is excellent. The leaders continue to monitor and evaluate progress, making adjustments along the way to ensure the progress is maintained and efficiency increased wherever possible. Then, one day amidst all the hustle and bustle and activity, one person climbs up a nearby tree. The person surveys the scene from the top of the tree. And shouts down to the assembled group below… “Wrong Way!” Leadership story 2:

Change recipients: who will be affected “ They” do the changing and “we” will tell them how. “they” might resist or not, implementing on people invites problems.
