Leading Through African UBUNTU, a 168-page book co-authored by leadership trainer Dr Dayo Olomu and corporate leadership consultant Dr Taiwo Ojo has been released.
It was among the leadership books on display at the 24th International Leadership Association (ILA) annual conference in Washington DC, USA.
The book, according to the publishers, “provides fundamental answers to major issues contending with the accelerated development of the African states.
“It also offers a way of engaging collective action and functional leadership to drive continental development.
“The Ubuntu philosophy (a Nguni Bantu term presaging humanity to others) is proffered as a means of fixing damaged polity through sacrifice, selfless service and love.
Founder of Daystar Christian Centre Sam Adeyemi wrote the foreword of the book.
In the words of Adeyemi, “As the mission to rescue Africa continues, Leading through African UBUNTU has dug further into Africa’s history to analyse its identity, culture, ideology, philosophy, values and virtues, and on the other hand, its challenges. And it further proffers unique ways to stimulate the movement for Africa’s transformation. It offers new vistas of hope. Africa will rise and fulfil her potential as we renew our collective minds and work together to rebuild it with trust, love, and care.
“Taiwo Ojo and Dayo Olomu have recommended Ubuntu as the right strategy through which Africa can be decolonised and ushered into economic, political, and social growth. This is a
great work, and it forms a valuable addition to the existing body of knowledge on Africa’s decolonisation and development. It is a good book for everyone. I recommend you read with an open mind.”
Olomu and Ojo met at the 23rd International Leadership Association (ILA) Global Conference in Geneva, Switzerland in 2021.
Widely travelled and with extensive experience in corporate consultancy, Ojo is adept at leadership, culture, research, analytics and strategies.
Olomu is an organisational development specialist who is passionate about raising transformational leaders, mentoring professionals and empowering the youth.
