It's the end of the world as we know it

It's the end of the world as we know it

The Tutu Fellowship Programme requires each participant to write an essay on leadership in Africa. The quality of submissions is very high as demonstrated by this challenging and thought provoking piece by 2016 Fellow Jon Kornik,  where he posits that we are decades too late for leading by looking in the rear view mirror when faced with a dynamic and disrupted future. New values, new mindsets and approaches are needed in leaders for positive outcomes for the people of Africa.

2016 Tutu Fellowship Programme ends with an amazing final workshop in Oxford

2016 Tutu Fellowship Programme ends with an amazing final workshop in Oxford

Twenty three dynamic young leaders were awarded their Tutu Leadership Fellowship certificates last month at a farewell dinner hosted by Lord Hacking at his home in London, having completed the six-month, part-time programme with an intensive but richly rewarding ten-day workshop in Oxford and London.  This immensely rich and varied programme has made a deep impression on the graduating Fellows. A couple of comments illustrate the impact:

2016 Tutu Fellowship Workshop at Mont Fleur

2016 Tutu Fellowship Workshop at Mont Fleur

The first workshop of the 2016 Tutu Leadership Fellowship Programme was held at Mont Fleur Conference Centre from 23 to 30 April. The 23 Fellowship candidates, selected from over 250 top quality applicants, came from 11 different African countries as far afield as South Sudan, Chad and Somaliland. However, after 8 days of intensive leadership learning activities at this beautiful retreat in the Stellenbosch mountains, they left as a cohesive and enthusiastic body ready to tackle and make a difference in the challenges of leadership in Africa. Further work awaits them before the second workshop in Oxford and London in early September, but the Mont Fleur experience was a very memorable one, as it has been for the 10 previous Fellowship classes. The candidates were not only encouraged to reflect on the leadership challenges of Africa by renowned African business and civil society leaders, and by political leaders such as Trevor Manuel and Jay Naidoo, but they were also enticed to reflect on their own leadership through carefully structured experiential learning exercises, which teased out some thought provoking self-reflection. The attached photos capture some of spirit of the week at Mont Fleur.

Candidates announced for 2016 Tutu Leadership Programme

AFLI is pleased to announce the 24 candidates selected for the 2016 Tutu Leadership Fellowship Programme, including the 5 candidates nominated by our sponsoring organisations – AGCO, Centum Investments, GSK, Investec and Rio Tinto – without whose generous support this incredible programme would not exist. There were 305 top-quality nominations from 32 countries for a slot in this prestigious programme, and inevitably there will be many disappointed, excellent candidates. The programme has developed a reputation as the foremost leadership programme designed specifically for Africa’s next-generation leaders, and as such is attracting Africa’s highest-calibre emerging leaders from all sectors. Competition is fierce for a place on the programme. It is evident from reviewing the applications that Africa is blessed with a very rich set of top-quality young leaders who have the potential to lead the continent to a bright future, and who are already doing amazing things.

Best wishes for the 2015 holiday season

Best wishes for the 2015 holiday season

As many of the continent’s leaders start to wind down for the holiday season, we should take time to reflect upon a turbulent year which has really challenged the continent’s leaders in all spheres of activity. The euphoria of the bullish “Africa Rising” scenario was shattered by collapsing energy and commodity prices, sluggish global growth, and unresolved terrorist activities. Leaders who failed to utilise the good times to build a broader-based economy more resilient to adverse forces, but rather wasted the opportunities through inefficiency, corruption and short-term thinking, now find their countries and organisations facing difficult times and a public increasingly vocal against bad leadership.

We condemn these episodes of violence as much as we condemn the violence experienced by the students and people of Garissa, Kenya; as much as we condemn the violent abduction of the girls in Chibok, Nigeria over a year ago; as much as we condemn war-related rape towards women in different war-torn parts of Africa; and as much as we condemn the violence into which young children are forced to become child soldiers.
