Dr. Dayo Olomu, has officially announced Friday 25th June 2021, as the date for the virtual launch of his latest book “THE PREMIUM LEADER: Leadership Attributes and Strategies for Today’s Volatile World”.
The U.K based Leadership Trainer, Motivational / Virtual Speaker and Author, proudly states that his new book is “A book devoted to providing solutions to leadership challenges and teaching how to excel in strategic and management situations full of uncertainties and surprises”.
“It is a work of research that has taken me 5 years to publish. There is no gainsaying the fact that the elongated period has also been subjected to the brutal vagaries of the ever-changing world that we inhabit. No less so is the current pandemic with its attendant lockdowns and global meltdowns, forcing us to live as we have not experienced before. It is the more reason that the publication of a book purveying functional approaches to the volatilities, uncertainties, complexities, and ambiguities of our times has become so expedient”.
He reiterates, “I have published this book, but even of more importance to me is getting it to the desired hands and the reading populace. The more the message is spread, the more people will get to hear about it and the more people we would likely reach”.
Close friends and associates have already taken to their social media handles to promote this great achievement by Dr. Olomu. Ayo Akinfe, his close associate describes the book as a must-read for him, “as there appears to be an emphasis of leadership tailored to specific needs based on global best practices”. Tosin Ogunnusi, a close friend of Dayo Olomu, believes “One important strand of leadership that Olomu has brought to the table that needs mentioning is the reason he wrote the book”.
“It was out of a compelling desire to not just contribute to the body of knowledge and leadership discourse, but from a knowledgeable base that the American and British voices on the subject have not been effectively captured”.
Dr. Dayo Olomu’s thinking, Ogunnusi further expressed, “was that the western perspectives of leadership cannot be a one-size-fits-all for solving African’s problems, nor the only template for grooming their next generation of leaders. You can’t begrudge him for wanting to have his say and bring an overlooked perspective.
By putting his voice out there, not only has he provided an equally authentic pathway about leadership, but also positioned himself as a representative of the often-neglected constituency. His should be a voice that they can readily and proudly relate to and one that makes others find theirs”.
