Firm to empower teens with leadership skills

Manners & Conduct has concluded plans to hold the second edition of its leadership skills development programme and leadership boot camp for teens and preteens.

The firm said in a statement on Wednesday that the boot camp themed ‘Who are you’ would serve as a platform for cultivating leadership skills among students both in Nigeria and abroad.

The Creative Director of Manners & Conduct, Aderonke Faseru, noted that the boot camp would feature speakers from various backgrounds.

She added that the selected speakers would address specific topics to inspire and motivate participants towards greatness.

 She emphasised the importance of raising awareness about one’s identity as a prerequisite for fully realising the full potentials and talents.

 According to Faseru, the essence of the programme is also to push creativity and push individuals who have stronger drive for excellence to do better.

“Truly takes a community to raise a champion. So, we need some of these guys to come and be part of the community that these children need to excel globally,” she added.

 She said that the issues Nigeria and Africa as a whole were the strict adherence to misguided ideologies.

 “I do not believe one of the problems we have in Nigeria is poor leadership. I strongly believe we are where we are because of our ideologies. Even the followers are ready to take advantage of any situation.”
