In the last 24 hours I have had the opportunity of experience life in 3 neighboring countries and appreciated the role of leadership, in particular visionary leadership.
My trip started in Beni in the eastern part of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) a place I could only describe as virgin with its lush green forests and natural beauty that civilization has done little to change. I had last visited the boarder at Bwera nearly 10 years back, and it seemed like nothing much had changed on the DRC side of the boarder. Crossing the boarder into Uganda side made me appreciated the infrastructural development that the country has experienced; however the indiscipline in the country was illustrated by the drivers, unplanned house construction and influx in street vendors. Later that evening l landed in Kigali and what struck me was the sense of order that cut through the fiber of the country, starting from the airport which leverages technology to enable nationals to easily pass through immigration, clean and well lit streets that have a coordinated naming system, designated business hubs that ease the process of doing business, etc.
The leadership in each of these countries or cities has chosen a path to pursue and worked on building a culture that supports the agreed direction. Visionary leadership however can enable a country that is virgin, to pursue a path that enables it to navigate through its youthful and unruly confusion, into a mature and focused nation. This metaphor could apply to our lives as individuals or the entities that we run as well.
