A New Kind Of African Leader
The most successful leaders in Africa bring out the best in their people by working with, not against, cultural values. These leaders ask: ‘What is in the culture that will help or hinder the attainment of our goals?’
Africa, traditionally favouring a collectivist approach to life, is adopting Western political and economic models such as democracy and free market economics which call for specialisation and individual expression. Africans need culturally sensitive leaders to help us to navigate the shift of emphasis from the collective to the individual.
At LEAD GHANA, we train leaders to build great teams that achieve a balance between traditional African community values and the contemporary need for individual specialization. We help leaders to develop a deliberate, well-thought out organisational culture designed to maximize productivity in a modern economy.
Join us and explore practical, new ways of thinking about leadership in Africa that will bring you and your organisation real results.

How effective is your personal style of leadership in the African context? What cultural factors do you need to consider when setting up/running organisations in Africa?
Great teams are built on great individuals. What are each team member’s strengths? And how can we best bring Africans together to achieve common goals?
There are MANY positive aspects of our culture to treasure and promote. However, some aspects of the social systems we have in Ghana, principally our upbringing and education, seem designed to dumb down the individual’s intelligence – intelligence we know exists because when the same Ghanaian is taken to another society/culture, he or she often excels.
