The current and future world is facing rapid change, lack of predictability, challenges composed of several interconnected variables and relationship between cause and effect not clear. This situation is referred to as Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguity (VUCA). High Impact Leaders with unwavering commitment not to comprise their values are required to navigate through these challenges. As a graduate of Cambridge Institute of Sustainability Leadership, I take responsibility to share my knowledge and skills through to young and middle career in leadership. This will be done through offering short courses, mentoring, live sessions and arranged talk. This institute therefore will attempt to build a cadre of High Impact Leaders across sectors who will be ahead of innovation, embrace purpose and values in their leadership style.

When I was at African Union Headquarters in Addis Ababa in January 2020, I read the most inspiring statement of Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere who said 

if a door is closed, it must be pushed until it is wide open, if it is ajar it should be pushed until it is wide open. In neither case, it should not be blown at the expense of those inside”. We need leaders with resilience, presence, values and purpose to lead their society to push doors until they are open and not to blow the doors at expense of their own people. This is a leadership statement upon which Bujari High Impact Leadership Institute will embrace. 

The Context

Towards 4th industrial revolution, there is rapid and continuous change that individuals, families, society, institutions, and governments are looking for leaders who can create a better future. As things stands communities are loosing hope in their leaders where some trusted political, sectoral leaders became mediocre making wrong investment decisions that has caused loss of lives and livelihood, solving symptoms instead of root causes. Leaders not able to make decisive decisions on time, leading to underspending in major project whose impact last for years. So we are who we are because of what we did yesterday. To change tomorrow, we must change today. It is not the end, we can still do better tomorrow if we invest in High Impact Leadership purpose and values and so at Bujari High Impact Leadership we say Every failure is a step to success!            

The purpose

Mark Twain said “The two most important days in life one is the day you were born and another is the day you discover why”. It is also a privilege to quoting Dr. Myles Monroe a great minister and teacher who said “The most significant tragedy in life is not death, but life without purpose?”.

Mark Twain was an American humorist, novelist, and travel writer. Today he is best remembered as the author of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885). 

Myles Munroe, was a Bahamian evangelist and ordained minister avid professor of the Kingdom of God, author, speaker and leadership consultant who founded and led the Bahamas Faith Ministries International and Myles Munroe International.

The Process

Through online sessions, digital platforms and face to face session, this institute will therefore help young leaders and professionals across sectors to discover why they were born (Purpose), help them explore what personalities they are, help them to bolster their areas of strength and how to manage areas of development. Specifically for young leaders, it will instill confidence and encourage them to act. This will build on Baraca Obama quotation who said: “If you run you stand a chance of losing, but if you don’t run you’ve already lost.”  It will help leaders to identify their own values, help them practice value-based leadership, developing leadership mindset and skills for innovation. For those already in leadership position, the institute will help them to re-wire their leadership approaches and goals.
