True Leadership is Scarce

Our mission is driven by the understanding that with a global population exceeding 7.9 billion, the demand for leaders who can tackle diverse challenges has never been more critical.

“True leadership is scarce and has become one of the major reasons for the problems in the world, in nations, in communities, in families, and homes. Every problem you see that lingers is a reflection that someone, who is supposed to lead is not taking responsibility.”

Stephen Oluwatobi, PhD | Interim President, Covenant University Alumni Association

Cohort 1 is ongoing.

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.

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.
