COVIDicTimes: Building to last in a pandemic

Everyone knows this is a hard time to live and even more so a jolly harder time to lead. A couple of thoughts and tools have been most helpful in my own leadership struggle to survive the pandemic and tussle to thrive beyond it.   This is worth repeating although people in my circles might […]

COVIDic Times: Leading in Times Like These.

By Kehinde Ojo Leaders matters at all times; especially in a pandemic of the kind that seems to occur only once in a century. Leadership at this time means response-ability, showing the way with both head, heart and hands, and resisting the Lone Ranger syndrome. John Maxwell stated that “everything rise and fall with leadership”. In […]

COVIDic Times: AN EASTER CELEBRATION WITH A DIFFERENCE!

By  Dr. Susie Ubomba-Jaswa In a matter of a few shorts weeks COVID-19 has totally changed life as we know it in virtually every nation on the globe? What on earth is going on in the world? Is Someone trying to get our attention? Will we heed?     A month ago very few, if […]

COVIDic Times: SPATIAL DISTANCING; NOT SOCIAL.

We all know what is meant by the most popular phrase in the universe right now, ‘social distancing,’ but the term is unacceptable to me on at least three levels. I would rather go for the term ‘spatial distancing’ than ‘social distancing,’ and here’s why.   The world is in wartime mode, fighting a pandemic […]

COVIDic Times: A WAKE-UP CALL.

By  Dr. Owusu Banahene At a time when for once leaders of a developing country cannot escape the infrastructure and systems they might’ve failed to build to benefit from someone else’s in the developed world, this presents a fine opportunity to experience the harsh reality for themselves and sit up, post COVID-19. A pandemic is […]

COVIDic Times: BE AFRAID.

If we peeled the pandemic panic layer by layer what would we find lies beneath—what are people really afraid of? While not wanting to spread panic is there not a place for encouraging people to “be afraid”?   The tongue-in-cheek saying that everyone wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die seems rather […]

COVIDic Times: Don’t Pitch Faith and Science Against Each Other!

It’s never a good time to pitch religion and reason against each other but certainly not in a time of crisis, especially the kind of COVID-19 pandemic which requires “all [washed] hands on deck!”   Much of my time this morning was spent going back and forth debating on my Achimota School 1995 WhatasApp platform […]

What Transpired in Court: a Blow to Blow Account

The day after my trial I sent a newsletter to all my family, friends and ministry partners around the world who had been praying for righteousness, truth and justice to prevail, giving them a ‘blow to blow’ account of happenings on that eventful day, November 28, 2018. You may read it here. Acquitted! Discharged!! Free!!!

You don’t know You if you don’t know God—and vice versa.

With all due respect, we are fooling ourselves if we think we can know ourselves without knowing God or know God without knowing ourselves. You can’t have one without the other. Here’s why.   “MAN, KNOW THYSELF” We shall not even begin to delve into the convoluted Egyptian and Greek history that tries to explain the […]

I DON’T CARE HOW GOOD YOU ARE (#2)~If you’re not a ‘walkie-talkie’

When “what people say, what people do, and what they say they do are entirely different things” (Margaret Mead) we’re in real trouble. On this Father’s Day, I want to honour the one person, of all the leaders I know in this world, who I can vouch for as walks his talk: my own father. […]
