Taking the Lead

Leadership is all about taking the lead, setting the pace and blazing the trail in a given task. Leadership is not occupying a seat; it’s accomplishing a feat. It’s not occupying a position; it’s making outstanding contributions.
- Dr. David Oyedepo

I have learned from CLD that leadership is not a position, it is about influencing people and creating positive change, and leadership is not about authority, it is about service. I thank the ALDC team, as this is the best, most organized and orderly course I have ever attended. Today, I have become much more valuable than I was in the organisation.

Everything I have wanted answers to have been answered during this programme. Business-wise, it has opened up a new horizon for me and I have transformed from being a transactional leader to a transformational leader. In all, the lessons learned have gone a long way in making me a better leader and enhanced my status and capacity for my entrepreneurial and nation building drives.

I loved the way the facilitator simplified digital literacy and tied it to leadership, using vivid examples. Initially, I was wondering if my efforts to build digital capital were worth it. I’ve now become more encouraged to show up as a digital literate, to make impact and to publish it. So detailed and rich.  The facilitator is a gifted teacher. His voice carries his passion into the words he uses and beckons the ready heart to act. Highly Impactful

I have become better in my non-verbal gestures and I am more intentional about finding my purpose. I loved the fact that, the session was practical as it related with real life situations. They really got me thinking; I was not bored at all, because it was engaging and the style at which he delivered was superb! I loved it. I heard for the first time vital points I have not heard anywhere else before. I really hope we could have more of his sessions.

Towards Leadership Impact (TLI)

A Six-week Online Intensive Leadership Certification Course to Kickstart Your Journey Towards Growing Leadership Impact (Self-paced, online)
June 24th - August 11, 2024.

Leadership is much more than bringing a group of people together and leading them towards a shared goal; to be an effective leader, it starts with oneself. I have been able to identify a mentor and I am currently practicing the laddership concept of leadership. The sessions were very real, it seemed as if we were in the classroom settings. The introduction was wow! The video teaching materials were a blessing, and the most enjoyable part was the live session with Dr. Oyedepo. It was the icing on the cake. We were able to ask questions and got professional responses. Excellent, I would want to do it again. Thank you for this thought-out programme.

Frederick Opata Nigeria

I have noticed improvements in my ability to coordinate my team, communicate effectively as well as efficiently manage assigned tasks. The facilitators brought in a wealth of expertise and real-world experience, enriching our learning journey with practical insights and anecdotes. It was truly a transformative journey that exceeded my expectations in every way. As the program progressed, I witnessed significant growth, both personally and professionally. It not only equipped me with the knowledge and skills needed to excel as a leader but also provided me with a supportive community of peers and mentors.
