The search for skilled talent in Africa just got hotter.https://breakfastclubafrica.com/2020/08/26/the-search-for-skilled-talent-in-africa-just-got-hotter/ Wed, 26 Aug 2020 00:23:09 +0000 https://breakfastclubafrica.com/?p=5817
1n 2019, Google, Microsoft and Huawei either launched or announced the launching of major projects in Africa that will draw talent and raise the bar of leadership performance and compensation for employers in Africa.

These companies are looking for exceptional engineering, information-technology and innovative-thinking talent to bring on board to staff their Data centers, Artificial Intelligence centers, and Development Centers.
And you thought finding and keeping talented employees was hard enough?

With the advent of communications technology like 4G and the rapid expansion of broadband connectivity in African urban areas, talent in Africa is being liberated from the shackles of location and country-of-residence to be able to work and earn money across the globe. This transformation has significant implications for companies in Africa as they seek to grow exponentially and succeed in an increasingly borderless business world. For African CEOs, these developments create greater import to the issue of enhancing their ability to lead effectively, because when it comes to managing talent…
People don’t quit companies; they quit people…

As you ponder how to find, groom and retain the best talent that will enable you to grow your company, invest in your own capacity to lead. Join BCA and let’s help you  acquire skills and inspiration to become a better leader.

A prosperous Africa is possible – Remarkable Rwanda shows the way.https://breakfastclubafrica.com/2020/08/26/prosperous-africa-is-possible-remarkable-rwanda-shows-the-way/ Wed, 26 Aug 2020 00:21:26 +0000 https://breakfastclubafrica.com/?p=5815 From 1986 – 1988, I lived in Nairobi and never knew or heard of a country called Rwanda (I heard of Uganda,

Tanzania, Ethiopia and Somalia). In 1994 Rwanda became famous for all the wrong reasons. The rise of Rwanda like a phoenix from the ashes of violence and destruction is a testament to the power of leadership and belief in the power of one’s citizens to determine their own positive destiny. In 2018, Kigali hosted more international conferences and meetings than Nairobi.  Leadership matters.

Rwanda provides a classic hope that Africa can work. Visit Rwanda and you will be inspired by the plethora of evidence you will see, good leadership and the efficient utilization of scarce resources. You will see the results of dreaming big and having the discipline to pursue the vision. You will rub shoulders with other CEOs who will challenge you to dream bigger than you have ever dreamt before and to lead better than you have ever led.  And you will realize that unlike Rwanda which took 20 years to achieve its vision, you can achieve it in less time, because you have tools and technology available to you that were not available in 2000.
The team at BCA are determined to transform Africa in the next decade. We are focused on impacting Corporate Africa through its CEOs. Rwanda provides a vivid reminder and a challenge to all leaders about the transformative power of good leadership. Join us at BCA and invest in your leadership capacity to transform your company’s performance and growth trajectory.

Everything we need to make Africa great is already in Africahttps://breakfastclubafrica.com/2020/08/26/everything-we-need-to-make-africa-great-is-already-in-africa/ Wed, 26 Aug 2020 00:17:39 +0000 https://breakfastclubafrica.com/?p=5813 Collectively, our generation of business leaders will one day be held accountable by the next generation as they ask

us whether we left a better continent than the one we were given and whether we fulfilled our potential with the amazing technology, global networks and enormous financial resources that we had at our disposal. At BCA, we collectively sharpen each other’s irons as we enhance our capacity as leaders and grow our hunger to create enduring companies that will outlive us and provide employment for millions of Africans.

Will it matter to Africa that I lived?https://breakfastclubafrica.com/2020/08/26/will-it-matter-to-africa-that-i-lived/ Wed, 26 Aug 2020 00:14:46 +0000 https://breakfastclubafrica.com/?p=5811 As leaders of organizations in Africa, we need to be asking ourselves the question:  How will it matter to Africa that I lived?

We are blessed beyond measure by virtue of our positions as leaders of organizations. We are already at or near the top of the food chain in Africa and have attained levels of lifestyle comforts that many Africans can only dream about. Does our responsibility as leaders or organizations stop at providing food, shelter and education for our families and paychecks for our current employees? Or do we have a responsibility to groom our current employees to become leaders themselves and equip them with the skills and resources to provide the paychecks for future employees yet unknown and unborn?

Reflections from a Leadership Coach – The cost of exhaustionhttps://breakfastclubafrica.com/2020/08/26/reflections-from-a-leadership-coach-the-cost-of-exhaustion/ Wed, 26 Aug 2020 00:12:43 +0000 https://breakfastclubafrica.com/?p=5809 As CEOs, we have many demands – personal and professional – on our time, attention, and energy, and we struggle

with achieving optimal work-life balance. After coaching dozens of CEOs across Africa, I have come to realize that tired CEOs make poor decisions and the most effective CEOs are the ones who are intentional about planning their weekly calendars. In her book on  ‘Top Five Regrets of the Dying ‘, Bronnie Ware who interviewed hundreds of patients in dying wards, recorded these top 5 regrets common to many leaders:
1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
I am a former workaholic who, after making regrettable decisions while exhausted, adopted a new strategy of being intentional about my daily and weekly schedule and incorporating all areas of my life into my schedule as I plan for the week. I have experienced positive change in my relationships and behaviors towards my staff, family, and friends.
What can you do differently to improve your work-life balance?

I am crazy enough to dream big for Africahttps://breakfastclubafrica.com/2020/08/26/i-am-crazy-enough-to-dream-big-for-africa/ Wed, 26 Aug 2020 00:08:58 +0000 https://breakfastclubafrica.com/?p=5807 “I’m crazy enough to dream big”


These words were stated by Dr. David Moinina Sengeh, the first ever Chief Innovation Officer of the Government of Sierra Leone, who boldly defended the vision for transforming Sierra Leone into a technical and innovation hub to a group of CEOs at a recent Breakfast Club meeting in Freetown.
As I reflected on these words, I realized that I am also crazy enough to dream big. Then I realized that in Africa we need CEOs who are crazy enough to dream big and pursue great big visions that scare themselves and inspire others.
Dreaming big is what put a man on the moon. Dreaming big is what created Apple, AirBnB, Uber, and Amazon. Dreaming big is what will create the next generation of Made-in-Africa Multinational Companies that will become household names for the next generation of African workers.
