Broadcasting, owners of Radio XYZ, 93.1 and TV XYZ has held its maiden edition
of Emerging Leaders Summit aimed at mentoring and inculcating leadership values
in the youth.

The summit, on the
theme: “Redefining Leadership,” was to share ideas and discuss innovative ways
of helping to achieve the dreams of young generational leaders.

It brought together
more than 1,000 youth across the country to acquire leadership values.

Mr Ato Sarpong, a
Financial Adept, Mawena Trebarh, the Former Ghana Investment Promotion Centre
Chief Executive Officer, Dr Joshua Ofori, a Pastor, Author and Inspirational Speaker,
and Dr Ishmael Yamson, a revered Businessman, made contributions on ideas to
make the youth achieve their full potential.

Mr Neil Armstrong
Mortagbe, the Project Co-ordinator, Leading July – Emerging Leaders Summit said

principles of leadership development in making the youth proactive in their
daily activities.

He said the summit was
the climax of the organisation’s Leading July 2017 programme; a thought
provoking programme that would tap into the experiences and insights of
celebrated Africans on leadership and would be held annually.

Mr Sarpong speaking on
the topic: “Securing the Mandate to Lead,” said leadership was service and the
qualities of a servant leader included: selflessness, valuing diverse opinions
from followers, good character.

He said leadership was
not a reflection of competence only but character. He therefore asked the youth
to work on their character to develop positive ones.

He urged the youth to
espouse servant leadership to enrich the lives of individuals, build better organisations
and help the country grow economically.

Madam Trebarh, who
spoke on the topic: “The Leadership and Experience: Challenges and
Opportunities,” probed the youth to remain focus on their goals, be proactive
and stick to deadlines when they set a target. 

She noted that hard
work, humility, and the desire for excellence were key to become great leaders
and therefore extoled them to strive for those attributes.

Dr Ofori delivering a
paper on: “The Leadership Ladder of Success,” tasked the youth to develop their
potentials and acquire more knowledge in different areas to make them better
persons in the ruling world.

Dr Yamson, who also
spoke: “Reminiscences of a Leadership Journey,” advised the youth to seize
every opportunity and have a burning desire to persist in whatever they engaged
themselves in.
