  3. What makes a leader a good leader?
    Is it the number of his followers? Is it his multitude of connections and wealth?

    According to Niyi Osundare a good leader has a hybrid of habits; a little of a lion, a little of a lamb.

    Tough like a tiger, compassionate like a doe. Transparent like a river, mysterious like a lake.

    With Niyi’s definition of a leader, I believe that @⁨Nathan Isaac⁩ is more than a leader, and here are 5 things I love about him.

    1. He gives us a listening ear: Having someone to express your fears and joy with is something everyone loves and Mr. Nathan has given us that opportunity.

    2. He cares- Ever ready to know what we are up to, our growth, challenges, and not just knowing, he provides solutions and encouragement

    3. Dedication. He is the best definition of this word. He’s dedicated to all he does and ever ready to put in his best

    4. Multi-tasking. He is the Don of multi-tasking. Do you know anyone who has a lot to jiggle through and will never be late? It’s him!

    5. He loves relentlessly. Yes, Africa proves it all. He is like a father to us, showering us with love and impact while giving us to

    Thank you @⁨Nathan Isaac⁩ for all you do for us. We love you.
    Congratulations, Sir.

    An example of a true leader.

    Each session with you is like my head won to burst with words of knowledge that you dispense, because I gain so much clarity and insight immediately.

    I remembered the last conversation you had with me concerning TMC and you went further to ask what is my niche. I told you and you said something ” Chinonso do not limit your brand. You can do big” Instantly I realized I had been playing small and I decided from that moment I must be more.

    Working closely with you has taught me a lot about being organized. planning and executing. I do not take all that for granted.
