He said. “The world will not give anything to you until you prove that you can sustain your vision’’
“Regardless of the various titles in leadership, a major title every leader should answer is problem solver” said keynote speaker, Tracy.
“The words you choose to use in a crisis, determines the amount of control you have in that crisis,” he said.
Olusola noted that critical among the leadership values that will transform organisations is the mindset of service and a desire to create an atmosphere that is devoid of paranoia and fear.
