MOTIVATIONAL speaker Dayo Olomu is stepping up his lecture series aimed at improving the calibre of leaders Nigeria produces with the launch of a new book titled The Premium Leader: Leadership Attributes and Strategies for Today’s Volatile World.
Launched as part of his 56th birthday anniversary, the 290-page book will be officially unveiled on Friday 25 June 2021. A passionate community activist, Mr Olomu, the author of the best-selling book You Got the Power, holds training sessions on leadership and youth development aimed at developing human capacity.
Mr Olomu said: “This is a work of research that has taken me five years to publish. There is no gainsaying the fact that the elongated period has also been subjected to the brutal vagaries of the ever-changing world that we inhabit.
“No less so is the current pandemic with its attendant lockdowns and global meltdowns, forcing us to live as we have not experienced before. It is the more reason that the publication of a book purveying functional approaches to the volatilities, uncertainties, complexities and ambiguities of our times has become so expedient.
“I have published this book but even of more importance to me is getting it to the desired hands and the reading populace. The more the message is spread, the more people will get to hear about it and the more people we would likely reach.”
One important strand of leadership that Mr Olomu has brought to the table that needs mentioning is the reason he wrote the book. He added that it was out of a compelling desire to not just contribute to the body of knowledge and leadership discourse but from a knowledgeable base that the American and British voices on the subject have not been effectively captured.
Mr Olomu’s thinking was that the western perspectives of leadership cannot be a one-size-fits-all for solving African’s problems, nor the only template for grooming their next generation of leaders. By putting his voice out there, not only has Mr Olomu provided an equally authentic pathway about leadership but also positioned himself as a representative of the often-neglected constituency.
