IMG-20210227-WA0012

The biggest challenge in public leadership in Nigeria and Africa is to find value based leaders, leaders developed and trained for the service of the people, Leaders raised and built on the true principles of servant and transformational leadership, leaders with compassion, empathy, love, willing to sacrifice for the nation and total commitment to the visions of our founding father.

Leaders who aim above personal, regional, ethnic and religious sentiments to the common interests of the people. Our generation is fast losing the principles of people-oriented leadership. We are speedily taking the steps of our modern-day political leaders who are selfish, corrupt and divisive which resulted to regional, ethnic and religious sentiments Princeton Leadership Forum (PLF) has identified the inherent leadership gap in our public system as the major crisis bedeviling nascent democracy like Nigeria and most African countries and hence, the necessity for this leadership development platform for emerging leader in Nigeria and Africa.

CODE OF CONDUCT FOR PRINCETON

The quality of any entity, mechanism, or system is a direct function of the quality of its operators; and the quality of the operators is determined by the ethical standards, values and principles practiced by the operators.

As every organization/nation is a reflection of the quality of its leadership; so every leadership is a reflection of the quality of ethical standards, values and principles assimilated by its leadership infrastructure.

Therefore, if a system is bad or organization/nation is grossly dysfunctional, the common sense solution is to examine or interrogate the ethical standards, values and principles upon which the leadership infrastructure is established.

Code of Conduct however, is/are the highest ethical standards, principles and values adopted, practiced and preserved that helps to guide our general conduct of life.

They are the same ethical standards, values and principles that should be upheld in the institutions of governments, religion, family, education, law, economy, businesses and organizations. They define the general conduct of life and existence.

  • RULE OF LAW: organizations, government and citizens all abide by the same laws regardless of political and economic power. Those laws must be stable and justly applied.

Its is about the qualities and values leaders possess which ultimately inspires and influences the organization and the world around them.
