My Top 5 Leadership Lessons from YALI RLC West Africa Onsite Training

In my last post. I interviewed 22 of my colleagues from the Young African Leaders Initiative, Regional Leadership Center (YALI RLC). They shared their before and after YALI experience.

A number of people asked me to share my experience. Therefore, I am resuming Lead Your Life Podcast by sharing some leadership lessons I learnt during the onsite training at Administrative Staff college of Nigeria (ASCON), Lagos.

I have been inspired to scale up on my ideas after spending 5 weeks together with Young African Leaders from 9 countries across West Africa. 

There were three tracks - Entrepreneurship, Public Management, and Civic Leadership. I applied to take part in the entrepreneurship track, to learn more about building sustainable business institutions.
Of all the experiences I gained, there were some that stood out for me.  

Five Leadership lessons that stood out from YALI RLC, West Africa

  1. Be Confident about your unique style as a leader.
  2. Discover your unique space as a leader as own it.
  3. Strategic collaboration is key to success.
  4. The key to building a strong network is to genuinely  serve others.
  5. Mentoring makes success more easy.

 In today’s episode of the Lead Your Life Podcast, I discussed with specific illustration, my leadership lessons from YALI.
