BACKGROUND The importance of leadership for the success of organizations and nations cannot be overemphasized. Some scholars have pointed out that everything rises and falls on leadership.[i] Despite this recognition, there is scarcity of leaders all over the world. According to Myles Munroe, the world is filled with followers, supervisors and Managers but very few leaders.[ii] However, it is possible to train leaders. It has been proven that leaders can be trained to become top strategists who will be able to envision the future and help to map out strategies on how to get there.[iii] Additionally, leaders can be trained to manage for success through people, policies, programmes and principles. The Centre LSD Leadership School is set up to train leaders by attempting to unravel the complexity of leadership and offering a framework that will help people to become great leaders.[iv] The school focuses on both leader development (expanding the capacity of individuals for effective leadership roles and processes) and leadership development (expansion of organisations’ capacity to enact basic leadership tasks including setting direction, creating alignment and maintaining commitment).[v] At the end, we hope to produce leaders who will know how to mobilise others to get extra-ordinary things done in organisations and nations. They should now be able to transform values into actions; visions into realities; obstacles into innovations; separateness into solidarity and risks into rewards.[vi] The school is meant for people who are motivated to become leaders and want tools to become dynamic, strategic and visionary leaders that will transform organisations and nations
