Book Buzz from The International Leadership Association 2022 Global Conference. Author Emmanuel Olatoye Sobande discusses The Leadership Myth: Why Leadership Principles Do Not Work in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Centuries of colonialism overwhelmed traditional African cultures and forms of communal governance. Dr. Toye Sobande’s new book painstakingly distinguishes between Western managerialism and African communalism by debunking the misconceptions about leadership in Sub-Saharan Africa. In this talk, he will focus in on how to revive the values and mechanisms of traditional African cultures in the leadership orientation and the dialogue between followers and their formal leaders.
