What you need for the process: Before the appointed time | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Many of us understand there is an appointed time and we are obviously waiting for the appointed time but there is something that we must do to be prepared for the opportunities that are coming at the appointed time. We also have to be ready for certain things in the …

What you need to be separated from during a process | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

As soon as the coast is clear for a new assignment, there will always be things we need to be separated from for us to get to our desired destination. If we are not separated from those things, we may not get to our destination in life. In some other …

Brace up for business challenges | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Like many other years past this year will present its opportunities and its challenges. If you brace up you will see that many of those challenges are actually opportunities. If you do not brace up you will see those challenges and will cave in for very little things that should …

Improving leadership through feedback | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

I mentioned in my last post that good leaders can take feedback. It is also very important to note that it is not just about taking the feedback but doing something with it. There are so many organisations who leaders say they encourage feedback but nothing is done with the …

Good leaders can take feedback | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

When you look around today in the political, religious, business and social space for leadership, many leaders can no longer take feedback from their followers or contemporaries. We are in the days when any feedback that does not appeal to the ego of the leader is seen as a tool …

The promise and challenge to die empty | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

‘I want to challenge everyone (especially you) to go to the cemetery and disappoint the graveyard. Die like the Apostle Paul who said I have finished my course, I have kept the faith and I have been poured out like a drink offering. There is nothing left. I am ready …

Whatever you choose to be. | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Back then in my secondary school (Mayflower School, Ikenne), we sang so many inspiring songs and one of them carries the title of today’s article. Some of us believed those songs so much that we got inspiration from them when we had our down times. Upon hearing the news about …

The Church and political relevance: Learning from Dr. Myles Munroe | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Very many people who preach about the great commission which is the basis for Christian Evangelism seem to be leaving out one thing from the statement. The instruction is to go into the world. We then neglect the fact that the world has a system of governance and the lives …

He discovered purpose as a teenager | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

All over the social networks and other pages of the internet, I still see people talking about the death of Dr. Myles Munroe. Most of us are still in shock. A few people are trying to figure out why good people with so much to offer the world still die. …

Myles Munroe was a blessing | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

The news breaking this morning about the death of Dr. Myles Munroe, Pastor, Inspirational Speaker and Coach who lived in Bahamas with his wife, Ruth, is more than sad. None of us expects good people to die especially when they are also making a great impact on the lives they …

Leading for personal gains | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Leadership is a desirable thing for so many. Some have a good reason to desire a leadership position because there is a cause and there are those who just want it because of their personal benefits. Some people just want to be in the leadership position because of the gains …

A leader is not perfect | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

I can forgive the imperfections of a leader; but to excuse those imperfections will simply prove that you don’t understand leadership and probably should not have been made a leader. I clearly understand that there is no one who is perfect. And I do not expect any leader to be …

Leadership can be lonely | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

If you have ever been a leader in any capacity before you will definitely agree that leadership can be very lonely. There are so many leaders out there who are so lonely and probably don’t even know what to do. Some have seen the possibility of loneliness in leadership and …

Following God’s leading | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

In the previous articles I have written about leadership, there was one that talked about being both a follower and a leader. This is a perfect example of being both a follower and a leader. If you are going to lead effectively or successfully in life, you must be following …

You can’t lead when you can’t dream | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

In all the things I have written about leadership, one clear thing I have established is the fact that it is not the position you occupy that makes you a leader. And that you are not in a position does not mean you are not a leader. As a matter …

Leadership begins at home | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

You may have taken leadership in your home with so much levity but if you really want to take leadership seriously then you must take the home leadership seriously. The leadership at home begins with the cooperation between you and your spouse and how you decide to work together rather …

Are you living your childhood dreams? | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

It’s always great to experience the innocence of childhood; when we spoke forth without the knowledge of obstacles that can stop our dreams or fear of economic monsters restraining us from achieving those tall dreams. Our hearts were sincere and the passion was genuine. It was what we really wanted …

To last longer in your chosen endeavour | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Long standing relevance in any field is determined by a number of things that the relevant people must have put into consideration before setting out at all. You don’t just wake up and say this is what you feel like doing and the next minute you have already started it. …
