It is easy to assume that all politics and leadership can be mutually exclusive. The truth is that there are many situations that in order to keep the peace, politics may be involved or even get in the way of a good leadership. Where there is a dispute of uncommon interests, whether it is to gain control, power or leadership that is politics. On the other hand Business leaders strive for understanding of their environments to develop strategies that improve their organizational performance and keep their edge on the competition.


The increase in complication, rate and large number of challenges and many opportunities by which systems are faced today produce ever-greater needs for automation, innovation and the ability to understand value from data in order to remain active and flexible to be able to fast take intelligent risks in today's changing markets. In many organizations, there are internal conflicts, and even key leaders begin to make their case and use politics in what they hope may either bring the peace or put an end to what they believe is disrupting their peace. Vice Presidents will threaten other departments by flexing their control should those departments not do as they are told. When we discuss politics, we discuss the policies and processes that are brought up for debate. These same policies dictate the path towards peace-making as a societal whole. But it is also important to remember that it also brings about additional conflict within the groups and hence another opportunity for Leadership in Africa.


A good leader is challenged to a new level of personal responsibility for bringing about reconciliation and tolerance. Without leadership it would not have taken the additional steps to really determine what the problem was and rededicate themselves towards the solution. But there are other examples where politics and leadership are not mutually exclusive. Take the military for example. Our leaders wage war on other countries that have different political views than ours. We are sent to war using force. And only as the victor can we then define what we believe peace to be. Whose war were we fighting? Whose definition of peace were we attaining? Ours, the people, another nations? Today, the need for leaders to make fast decisions, manage the paradoxes of seemingly contradictory demands and embrace change is critical to navigation and survival in these turbulent times. These skills and abilities are notably different from the more function-specific skills and abilities leaders needed in the past to succeed. Leaders must refocus their leadership skills to hone these more strategic, complex critical-thinking skills.


All would love to hear about strategies that the country used to overcome leadership adversities or the thoughts about the significance of the application of different principles to leading your environment.
