Dear CEO, You May Need an International Certification Just Like That

"They said B.sc's were no longer good enough,so I got an M.Sc. Then they said the market value of an MBA is higher, so I got on that horse too. Now they're saying I can't truly advance in my career/business without international certifications? But why?"

Lots of professionals ask this question, wondering why their hard-earned work/business experience is not good enough to get ahead.
The issue is not that your experience is not good enough, it's not that your previous degrees(or degree for some people) are no longer relevant; the issue is dear professional is that your singular experience in that particular field of expertise does not a global view make!


That the world is a global village is a concept learnt since primary school, that globalisation is affecting economies is an over-flogged rhetoric.


However, what most professionals DO NOT pay attention to is how to get ahead of the effects of globalisation on their own economic environment. You are still busy talking about its effects when you should be preparing to use the effects to your advantage.

There are ways to do that but International Certification is one of the cheapest means.

While you could travel the world trying to get ideas to improve your self and business(that will cost a looooot of money), you could also interface with world economic leaders through the now easily accessible International Certifications.
Yes it adds pedigree to your CV, even affects your earning power(and of course you get bragging rights), but beyond the obvious returns of getting certified,you are exposed to world views and practice on a varied number of important strategic matters.
This exposure to "how things work" in seemingly far away parts of the world that have become close neighbours (blame it on globalisation) is value-added to you that CANNOT be quantified.

Whatever knowledge gained from interfacing with International Standards accessed through International Certifications, is the wind beneath your sails that will keep you ahead of the stormy wave of globalisation.

So if you're asking, "should I get on this International Certifications horse?
The answer is YES, get on the horse and ride it all the way to the top of your chosen profession.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
