AFAM Webinar - Responsible Leadership

Submitted by AFAM on Mon, 09/12/2022 - 10:47am

Africa is at a crossroads.  A more sustainable and equitable Africa urgently requires new leadership models that put responsibility, accountability, and sustainability at the heart of its institutions, be they private or public.  The concept of responsible leadership has been the subject of academic and practitioner conversations in the last two decades.  The idea is that the influencing power of leadership should reach beyond a single organisation toward improving society and the world. But it appears to be deeper than just a role; rather it represents a form of agency that gives meaning to what is responsible and possible, a form of conditioning role, of shared and nested concerns toward the greater good. A key component of the responsible leadership competencies includes doing, and thus implying process and practices as a consequence of responsible leadership.
