Dr. Violet Arene is a bundle of Leadership Experience. Having successfully pioneered the Total Quality Management unit for Managers at NNPC, Arene now runs her personal consultancy, and has gone on to replicate such quality management trainings in other organizations such as Industrial and General Insurance (IGI), RCCG, and others.
At this Leaders hangout, in (events of ) AWLO Induction 2017, Dr. Violet Arene shares on the Power of Purpose Driven Leadership. These are some of the Takeaways from her session:
[Tweet “A woman in Leadership is still a woman. Retain your elegance and feminine charm.”]
Self-Leadership is the prerequisite for leadership because the first person you lead is you. You are the first person who will throw yourself down, and the first person to take you to the mountain top.
[Tweet “My value as a woman is not measured by the size of my waist, nor the number of men who like me.”]
My value as a woman is not measured by the size of my waist, nor the number of men who like me. It is measured by a Higher Purpose… it is something more sublime than just looking good for men.
[Tweet “A good heart and a good head are a perfect combination for leadership, and women have both.”]
Greatness is when you are about the greatness of other people. You do not become great by taking but by giving.
Character is the perfect criteria for Leadership. Africa is noted for irrelevant criteria such as Quota.
[Tweet “Team Leadership means ‘Win-Win’.”]
If you want to check the quality of Leadership in a place, check the quality of those being led.
But if you say politics is dirty, it is dirty Politics that produce the leaders that lead you. We cannot term Leadership as dirty.
