Education Our Sustainability Measure There is a leadership crisis all over the world; the next generation is at risk of inheriting a world that has forgotten what true leadership is. A cursory look at the emerging stream of young leaders in the field of education, business, religion, politics and sports and in the corporate world reveals an alarming trend. A growing sense of dishonesty, impatience and prodigality has led to a rising spate of personal and institutionalized corruption. This manifests itself in diverse ways: from the manipulation of examination processes to fraudulent elections, to the numerous get rich-quick schemes, characterized by internet fraud and the indulgence in dubious religious rituals to get wealth: a process that many of Africa’s young people continue to flock to in spite of the alleged ‘side-effect’ of death and/or mental dysfunction. In the face of these threats, there is also an emerging force of young leaders pushing of the ante in various fields. A number of young leaders, entrepreneurs, corporate executives, authors and other leaders have sprung up in various fields bringing hope to OUR COMMONWEALTH FAMILY OF NATIONS, seeking to assert itself and seize its rightful place at the frontline of global progress. This core of emerging leaders seeks direction to enable them excel and leave a mark on their generation. There is therefore a need to revisit the very foundations of leadership and to provide a road map that would help chart a clear direction for the next generation as far as leadership is concerned.
