Scripture: 61:1
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners.

As we start our Day-1 of our Leadership Conference let me emphasise that my teachings will focus on Leadership and Business.
Leadership is the power to influence. It is the power to make followers and make history. Remember, I have taught on leadership before and indicated to you that leadership has got 5 stages and today I am going to focus on stage-2; which is leadership by permission. However, many people are still on stage-1.
Leadership has nothing to do with physical appearance or stature meaning one can be a leader regardless of height, gender or education. According to God’s mandate, we are all leaders and should be able to lead but most people do not realise that in order to take their positions.
Whoever becomes an influential leader will never die poor. Most proper leaders know themselves. Most people do not know themselves.
Do you think you know yourself? Many people assume they can lead people yet they do not know themselves. A bull can flee from a toddler because it doesn’t know itself; that is the same with many people, they don’t know themselves, hence they venture into the wrong fields. If you do not know yourself, you are a danger to yourself. You need to know what you want to be by 2020 or 2040 and then you ask yourself how you can achieve it.
And that you should order your steps. People can get in marriage without direction, hence they fight as they do not know where they are going. You should be well described and how should you move from now. You should give yourself objective examples. Your end must not be described half way.
Jesus’ life was well defined from the beginning to the end, He knew exactly where He was meant to go. And how it would happen. Our own lives should be defined and we should have a describable defined end.
We give all glory to God. Mbiri kunaJesu
