Transforming Leadership for 21st Century Africa — AKU Media
We live in an era of accelerating change and unprecedented complexity. Organizational strategies today will be obsolete — if not self-defeating — tomorrow. Success requires agile leadership and intelligent communication.
That is why the Graduate School of Media and Communications at the Aga Khan University (AKU GSMC) is proud to offer an extraordinary opportunity to sharpen two of the most vital skills demanded by these challenging times. In November 2017, we welcome the first cohort of senior leaders — in business, government, civil society and media — to a new and pioneering suite of courses, Transforming Leadership for 21stCentury Africa.
Dean Michael Meyer
Hosted by the AKU GSMC in Nairobi, this unique offering is comprised of two back-to-back courses.
Adaptive Leadership for Africa: Chaos, Complexity and Courage, delivered by the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University (HKS), Executive Education, helps executives exercise leadership amid uncertainty with skill, purpose and effectiveness.
The Voice of Leadership: Inspiration, Influence and Impact, delivered by the AKU GSMC, empowers leaders to speak and act with clarity, vision and authenticity. The fundamental premise: the success of any initiative or enterprise depends as never before on high-quality, maximum-impact communications. Executives who fail to recognize this imperative will be left behind.
If you are a motivated leader – committed to your own and Africa’s future – this program is for you.
