Why I'm coming to Kenya…


Why am I coming to Kenya? To do business!

My business is to help leaders Inspire, Empower and Guide people to their very best––and I see a tremendous opportunity in Kenya!

There’s an incredible entrepreneurial spirit there––and I want to be part of it. I see a great opportunity to share my strategies to empower human-centric leaders and promote THE SENSEI LEADER philosophy. I want to help support leaders in Kenya who are now leading the charge and help cultivate the next generation of leaders who will take their communities, their country and the world into the future.

I want to make one thing crystal clear. Mine is not mission work…

This is not charity. Having said that I am personally inspired by the commitment of Kenyan businesses to corporate social responsibility. I am looking forward to partnering with you to support your CSR efforts and to share our own. (Click here for information on our CSR commitment…)

I am not coming to Kenya to impose any “foreign” ideas or with any assumption that I have something special––something you do not have. Quite the opposite. I will also be learning from you and will then share the stories and examples of Kenyan leadership in America and everywhere else I work.

And that’s how together we Inspire, Empower and Guide leaders all over the world.

I’ve made a serious and conscious choose only to work with the best organizations, the best leaders––and the best people who are aspiring to leadership.

That’s why I’m coming to Kenya. You have a lot of the world’s best people there––and we can do some powerful work together…

One of the key distinguishing characteristics of every great organization and every great leader is that they’re always––always trying to be even better. The best organizations and leaders embrace this philosophy…

"Perfection is not a destination. It’s a never-ending process!"

I’ve learned over the past 10 years that when it comes to leadership––you can’t fix “bad.” Sadly, some organizations and leaders have a very difficult time looking in the mirror. I’ve been in situations where a company wanted me to “fix” the mindset, attitude and performance of their people. In most of those situations, I discovered the problem wasn’t on the front lines, it was in the leadership ranks––and they didn’t want to acknowledge the problem or get to work fixing it.

My program simply doesn’t work in an organization like that.

First of all, you don’t have to have anything wrong with you to benefit from improvement. As I just said, the best leaders and the best companies always want to improve. Always.

They don’t rest on their laurels. They’re looking for ways to learn, grow and innovate. They’re looking for new markets. New ideas. New applications for their collective talents and abilities.

These organizations aren’t worried about today––they’re focused on the future.

That takes strong leadership––at all levels––from the front lines to the C-suite. And I see that kind of commitment from the people I’ve come to know in Kenya. We’re a perfect fit.

My job is helping leaders Inspire, Empower and Guide people to their very best…

In THE SENSEI LEADER Program we work together to identify and create strategies to cultivate and support effective, human-centric leadership.

I see Kenya and other African countries as leaders committed to humanity in leadership in business and politics. I see a vast movement of young people emerging as leaders and committed to transformation, growth and progress.

I’ve learned from experience that my work has it’s best effect when I connect with leaders and aspiring leaders who share these same values. People who recognize that leadership is service. People who acknowledge that the best leaders become powerful by empowering others.

Isn’t that a pretty good picture of what’s happening in Kenya? I’d be honored to be a part of this movement. I feel compelled to be a part of it.

If you share my ambitions––let’s work together. Let’s Inspire, Empower and Guide the people of Kenya to their very best.
