The Institute for National Transformation management welcomes you to the 27th edition of our monthly newsletter.
We present to you some of our facilitators in this issue.
As a result of my transformation from INT, at my work place, I see people happier and making their contributions to better our country which is so pleasing!
It takes as many as 25-minutes to maneuver through a simple junction during peak time. Ugandan Drivers hardly give due care and attention to other Drivers at Junctions/ Intersections and Roundabouts causing much unnecessary delays.
We do not respect rights of way (Matatus etc.).
The key transformations in my area of passion include:
• Think globally and act locally.
• Challenged to prepare and equip leaders to face and serve in dire conditions of life.
• Transformational leaders are no-excuse; values-based leaders like Lee Kuan Yew and Florence Nightingale
My transformation through INT came with the grounded understanding of putting first things first. I was reminded what it means to be a person of value; the role of the church in national transformation and our mandate as sons of God in Nation building.
Attending INT gave me a couple of things;
(a). Much needed hope in the transformation of Uganda
(b). A renewed sense of purpose in my area of calling
(c). Awareness about the 7 Spheres of influence in which we all work
(d). A Biblical world view to apply in my trade & passion
(e). A rich global network of professionals with whom we are on the same journey to transform Africa
In addition to reviving my dreams, INT challenged and pushed me to think of National Transformation in a new light; helping me to understand the potential I have to change not only Uganda but the world.
I was inspired to start my own business which is something that I have wanted to do for the longest time but always had an excuse for why that time wasn’t the right time. INT helped me reconcile the fact that we have all been created for a purpose and I need to work actively to contribute to society in the ways that God has gifted me.
INT experience has been a unique path to my social, spiritual and professional transformation. Prior to my enrolment in INT, I undertook leadership courses at the university and as part of capacity development at numerous NGOs that I worked for. However none of these training matches the experience at the INT.
INT opened my eyes to the practical aspects of being an oakseed- a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour in my sphere of influence. This changed the way I approach my assignments in the work place from mostly personal satisfaction to a national and continental outlook. It was because of my INT experience that I got the boldness to move out of my comfort zone and into a new work space which I believe God has called me into.
