Assess and Evaluate

The best way to make sure things are in line is to assess where you are today, including both your positive and negative characteristics, and to have an approach for self-growth for the future. It will take time and discipline to develop a constant process of self-inflection and you will need to set guidelines for improvement for yourself.

Get support and Take Action

 Choose action or inaction wisely. Deciding when to take action is a basic leadership . You can lead your people into action quickly or let the energy build while they prepare for what must be done. Both approaches are appropriate at times.

“Having women in office is vital to the health of our democracy.” In Nigeria, women make up 49% of the population but only less than 10% of these women occupy elected offices. Let’s change the narrative.

We need to be intentional about involving women in political processes in Nigeria. Let there be inclusion of gender sensitive provisions in the Electoral Act. #SAGE #WomenCanLead2

“To achieve gender equality, we need to mobilize not just parliaments but populations, not only civil society but all of societies.” #SAGE #WomenCanLead2

The time has come for every stakeholder to join hands and support the elimination of all barriers that prevent women's inclusion in political and leadership positions. #WomenCanLead2 #SAGE @centrelsd @KDI_ng @ledap @ukpaidan @SBSGender @NDI
