Business Executives can learn from Toriola’s Leadership Style

Business Executives have heard stories about taking the lead in Organizations from across the world. As a leadership and career mentor myself, it breaks my heart very often when the majority of the anecdotes we share during training sessions with clients in corporate Nigeria are from foreign business experiences. Foreign to our culture and personalities. Most Business Executives in Nigeria corporate world are seldom seen to be “taking the lead” accepting culpability and assuring their clients an error will not be repeated. That is the reason many Nigerians and I were shocked (Pleasantly) when Nigeria's MTN CEO Karl Toriola came...

ENTREPRENEURS DON’T PLAN TO FAIL

[caption id="attachment_1322" align="aligncenter" width="404"] Entrepreneurs[/caption] Research Says on Entrepreneurs I periodically read research reports about business failures and the details about Entrepreneurs Journey . I always find them interesting, although often reading about how these hardworking entrepreneurs fail is indeed depressing. A recent research from Bradley University in Peoria, IL found out that 70% to 80% of new Entrepreneur endeavor fails within their first year. While this was frustrating enough to read, the research further stated that half of those companies which do survive the first year will fail within the next four years.

A note to the frustrated Dreamer- Tyler Perry

THIS IS FOR FRUSTRATED DREAMERS I was driving in to work this morning and I started thinking about all the days I dreaded going to work. I was so sick of it… the job, my boss, the people I worked with, the traffic… I would wake up angry every morning. I didn’t want to deal with the crap of the job, but I was forced to go.
