The African Leadership Centre (ALC) invites applications from scholars and practitioners working in Civil Society Organizations (CSO’s) including but not restricted to Non-Governmental Organization’s (NGO’s) to attend a 10-day course on Leadership and Society. This course is convened by the African Leadership Centre in partnership with King’s College London,and the   Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA)

Leadership   and   Society   Course
It is evident that different leadership contexts pose a myriad of challenges in Africa. In these contexts, leadership issues such as culture, governance and human (personal) security affect society in general. In addition, issues of personal empowerment and effective communication shape leaders and impact on   their effectiveness. These common challenges call for developing the ability to apply key leadership   themes to particular leadership contexts and the ability to connect formal knowledge about leadership to lived experiences of people. By identifying the essential tools for practicing evidence-based leadership, the training aims to facilitate the development and demonstration of the above abilities among emerging African leaders across the continent.
