WHAT WE DO
LEAP invests in continuous primary and secondary research on leadership, values and social change in Africa. This research serves as the basis of its innovative curriculum and training programmes which are designed for personal, organizational and national transformation. To date, LEAP has published the following books: Defying the Odds, Get on Board, Rage for Change, Building a Culture of Ethics, Passing the Baton, Attract, Retain and Motivate Talent, Critical Strategies for Building a Sustainable Organization, Essentials Steps for Creating an Ethical Organization, Corporate Culture: The Essence of Winning Companies and How to Get a Job.
LEAP offers a range of training programmes for youth, business owners, social entrepreneurs, managers and public officers. Areas of training include life and employability skills development, personal and organizational leadership, governance, business ethics, succession planning and talent and organizational management.
LEAP holds an annual CEOs Forum to support SME development in Nigeria and equip business owners to build sustainable organizations. Launched in 2005, the CEOs Forum exposes business owners to the importance of planning for their succession and instituting effective systems and structures, and values within their organizations, to ensure long term sustainability.
The Social Innovators Programme and Awards is an offshoot of LEAP’s Annual Youth Leadership Award (ANYLA) which since 2004 has been a platform for recognizing the efforts of outstanding young Nigerians, who have distinguished themselves by making positive impact in community development. To date, 65 change makers have been recognized and supported through the ANYLA. The SIP is a one year fellowship that provides a platform for these young people to acquire skills and deliver even greater impact through exposure to LEAP’s youth leadership curriculum. It also provides an opportunity to join global network of young people with similar initiatives through LEAP’s partnership with International Youth Foundation’s YouthActionNet®.
