TIMELESS LEADERSHIP

TIMELESS LEADERSHIP


TIMELESS LEADERSHIP
Torch Bearer

This is our first strategic pillar because everything rises and falls on leadership. Africa will either rise or fall depending on its leadership. We hence need to build a critical mass of Transformational leaders who will be looking at unlocking the potential of the continent. Timeless Women of Wonder is thus involved in developing Transformational leaders who will unlock the potential of the natural human resources of this continent. We believe that the next leaders of Africa’s future will focus on the sustainability of social and economic Transformation and on entrepreneurship .

Since there is very little that exists in the way of formalized training for women already in leadership positions, TWOW Africa foundation has decided to effect the change needed in leadership by using a SEVEN PILLAR model. In TWOW, we want world leaders who are ready to move Africa’s growth to the next level. We therefore are engaging in multiple projects and initiatives geared towards increasing the number of women in leadership and generating the kind of leaders we need for the future. TWOW therefore has implemented a number of projects to both generate more Transformational leaders and increase the number of women in leadership. These projects aim to develop timeless leaders through Mentor-ship, working groups, coaching, apprenticeship and experimental learning.

With regard to the current social-economic challenges, TWOW sees it imperative to understand the current power structures in the continent of Africa. TWOW is informed and is knowledgeable about the African context of leadership. Africa needs a model of leadership that should identify skills and talents necessary for development, and ensuring their respective progression.
