Anote has attended many graduation ceremonies and often times listened to speakers quoting to the alumni the famous words: ‘Congratulations, you now have your place at the table’.
And he always felt that although it was important to acknowledge, there was something missing in this approach.
Gaining the power of taking part in the most important discussions, having your name displayed and assigned to chairs in very exclusive rooms – be it in business, academia or politics – should not be a fulfilment of leadership ambitions.
The real leadership is to make sure that through your voice, the voices of the people that you represent will be heard. And that the people, including whole nations that have a less strong presence in the room, will be taken into consideration when you are negotiating issues that directly impact their livelihoods and wellbeing, the future of their children and grandchildren.
