ย Tell them you know they can make things happen and that you will be asking their help at key times. Your expectations will energize them โฃโฃ

โฃโฃ

Ask this person what new goals or improvements your team needs to achieve. Then help to see what steps he/she can take to start making progress towards this goals.โฃโฃ

โฃ

Nchofon Taghaย please read this and let me know if you think Sir Akaba Jamesย is an activator.โฃ

โฃ

Reading this strength reminded me of how when we were planning for the Open Dreams Summer Academy 2023 in Douala at the last minute, we saw all the roadblocks but Sir Akaba kept pushing us to get it done and wait till we get to the river then figure out how to go across and thankfully, we crossed each bridge and made the #ODSA2023 happen in Doualaโฃ.
