A Philosophical Outlook And Analysis On The Leadership Prowess Of His Excellency Engr_Dr_David_Umahi.

A Strategic and Critical Thinker
Many experts across countless leadership books and articles agree on certain principles required for leading a team to greatness, but when it comes down to it, the most important factor is whether or not the leader is getting the job done.
My philosophies on leadership have evolved over time through research, experiences in some of the leadership positions I have held, and from my successes and failures running my own little enterprise. Personally, I believe that the best leaders are passionate about developing the emerging leaders around them just like DNU has exemplified in the appointments of majorly youths into different strategic leadership positions; His Excellency has constantly work to improve his emotional intelligence because he know that a strong team culture is the foundation for accomplishing the mission. He is in a perpetual state of preparedness ready to embrace the inevitable dynamism that comes with leadership.
For the purpose of this article however, below are the core leadership values and principles of DNU that I have personally observed and scrutinized over the years:
(1.) He Believes in Articulating a Clear Vision Through Strategic Planning
His Excellency Engr Dr Dave Umahi right from time, prior before he ventured into politics has been a meticulous and a well articulated leader who possess a Clear vision in every stage of his life. As a great leader, he is very courageous, has intergrity, honesty, humility and clear focus. He is a strategic planner who also believes in team work. As a great leader, he helps people reach their goals, he is not afraid to hire people who might be better than him being conscious of the salient fact that he takes pride and credit as the leader in the achievements of those he helps along the way.
His Excellency Engr Dr Dave Umahi is outstanding at strategic planning. Its another one of the more leadership strength of our dear governor. He is gifted with the ability to look ahead, to anticipate with some accuracy what the future holds. He has the technical knowhow to anticipate trends, well in advance of his contemporaries; he does this through thoughtful strategic planning.
(2.) His Excellency Engr Dr Dave Umahi Believes That The People Are The Key To Succeed As A Leader.
A great leader understands that it is the people that they lead that ultimately determines the success or failure of any venture or govt hence his people-centric policies and programmes. Being conscious of this fact, His Excellency surrounded himself with great people with the required mental and physical attributes that he has successfully cultivated into a formidable team of competent, confident individuals who depicts what a great team looks like. His Excellency over the last 3years have been able to tactically communicate and guide towards a well-defined vision of transforming Ebonyi state on different fronts by clearly communicating short and long term goals, inspiring confidence and trust amongst his cabinet members and other political and non-political appointees, and influencing common efforts through character rather than by a position of authority; thereby creating and nurturing other leaders.
(3.) He Makes The Hard Choices Which Serves The Greater Cause.
His Excellency's leadership virtues is predetermined and premised on his periodical blend of personal humility and unparalleled will to lead others in service of a cause higher than his personal cause. Great leaders are incredibly ambitious, but never for themselves as exemplified by DNU over the years. Rather, they are ambitious for the wellbeing of the people and possess the will and moral rectitude to do whatever is necessary in service of the greater cause which basically serves the people. DNU has made the right choices both in his policies and in who makes his team, and has proved himself overtime a worthy and trusted leader by refusing to conform or yield to the pressure of sharing the peoples common wealth among the privileged few, cabinet members, friends and family in other to enhance the lives of the common people and for the good of the society at large, knowing fully well that in essence, he is potentially responsible for the well being of the people.
(4.) He Focuses On Helping His Team Give Their Very Best.
DNU is someone who leads by positive direction and builds agreement among his team towards the accomplishment of a coordinated goal. Ultimately, he understands that leadership is not about who is in charge. He believes that leadership is about making sure that ones team stays focused on the goals, keeping them motivated and helping them be the very best they can be to achieve those goals. Dave is a great leader who has clarity of purpose and he is masterful at articulating his beliefs. He is a kind of a leader that pushes people to be the very best they can be but still make people feel safe because it starts with the heart.
Great leaders are those who are strong and decisive but also humble. His humility doesn't mean he is weak or unsure of himself. It means that he has the self confidence and self awareness to recognize the value of others without feeling threatened. This is one of the rarer attribute - or - trait of our dear governor because he has shown containment of his ego. His Excellency is ready to admit he could be wrong, and he recognises he may not have all the answers. And most importantly, he gives credit where credit is due....... which many leaders struggle to allude to.
Of all the leadership qualities of His Excellency Engr Dr Dave Umahi, his courageousness is the most identifiable outward trait I have observed.
According to Winston Churchill, courage is considered as the most foremost of the virtues, for upon it, all others depend on. Having the quality of courage means that he is willing to take risks in the achievement of his goals even with no assurance of success. Because there is no certainty in life or business, every commitment you make and every action you take entails a risk of some sort.
If Ebonyians are not appreciative of the fact that God has blessed us with a great leader as our governor, then that will definitely take us 30 years backward and the resurgence of the very deplorable views outsiders once held about the so called Abakaliki man. Though as a media man and a grassroot person who feels and knows the impulse of the people. I can authoritatively tell you that majority of the people are with him, and they trust him based on the basis of performance, capacity and service delivery. Conclusively, I urge every Enonyian both home and abroad to get his or her PVCs, and encourage family, friends, neighbors and coworkers to obtain a voter card. We should however know this two thing; reelection of our dear governor come 2019 and ousting the clueless.

Remember to add 'chicken-hearted'. That is one of the integral qualities he has displayed especially during the mayhem of Fulani herdsmen in his state.

With all the write up and front page privilege you'd expect people to flood this page but NO. Then why? A cascade of bad leadership and an expression of distrust for leadership in the country.

I was not in any way surprised at the content of this post when I saw the headline. It hadn't a different tone from the usual praise-singing wave flying over the air in Ebonyi state.
When you said Umahi has a large number of youth appointees in his administration I was waiting to see the list of name you will drop down. ....or did you mean the appointment of stomach-TAs. ..Nwafor Joshua et al?
The greatest harm done to Ebonyi is not Dave Umahi, it is people like you who twist truth just to feed your stomach; continue anyway, after all you are doing what you are paid to do.
