Report: New Breed Leaders of Africa- Cohort A1 (pics)
The Bridging the Leadership Gaps in African was launched in the US on May 29th, 2019 in a very colorful way. Click here to read the report of the launching conference with some pics. We have also begun implementing the Initiative in the diaspora where we trained the first batch New Breed Leaders of Africa (Cohort D1, D represents Diaspora) on July 6th, 2019 in Maryland, US.
The Initiative was also launched on the soil of Africa in Addis Ababa- the seat of African Union, on July 17th, 2019 at Addis Ababa University. Click here to read the brief report of the launching conference in Addis (pics and video clip).
As part of implementing the Initiative in Africa starting from Ethiopia- the seat of the AU, the 1-day first New Breed Leaders of Africa leadership development workshop was conducted in Addis on July 20th, 2019.
Though we had overwhelming requests to join the New Breed Leaders of Africa Cohort A1 (A stands for Africa), we only accepted a limited number of candidates. The session was dynamic and interactive. There were story sharing, metaphors, pairing, small, large group discussions, and also role-plays and video clips. The main topics of the session were- Mind set, Skill set, and Charcater set.
In the end, the Founding Mothers and Fathers of the New Breed Leaders of Africa program signed vow pledging to meet certain standards and keep meeting as new breed leaders of Africa who decided to go out and play their fair share in raising 1 million New Breed Leaders of Africa like themselves to transform Africa in one generation.
The Managing Director of Center for African Leadership Development, Ahadu Gebereamalk awarded the certificates and concluded the workshop by giving a powerful and inspiration remark encouraging graduates to stretch themselves, to be uncomfortable about the status quo to continue grow first themselves before they go out to empower other New Breed Leaders of Africa one person at a time.
The next program is Train the Trainers (TOT) here in Addis. More details will soon be shared.
