The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), in partnership with NEPAD Business Foundation (NBF) hosted the African Leadership Development Forum in Johannesburg, South Africa, on August 14, 2012. Participants discussed principles of value based leadership and accountability in Africa as key tenets of programmes that could enhance corporate governance within public and private spheres.
The event hosted a highly stimulating and exciting dialogue on Leadership Development in Africa and discussion on mechanisms to translate strategy into high performance and sustainable growth; and bringing vision to everyday life. Participants included executives, senior public sectors officials, directors and organizational learning senior professionals who networked to gather new insight, tools and ideas for leadership effectiveness in African and global organisations.
The CCL and NBF will develop a phased Leadership curriculum targeted at youth, community and business leaderships. Tenets that were discussed at the workshop will be included in the curricula and most importantly, NEPAD insights into leadership in Africa.
