Our Mission

To enhance human capital infrastructure through public leadership induction, mentorship and research

Our mission has three components:

  1. To use leadership induction to stimulate political and socio-economic transformation.
  2. To use mentoring as a tool to promote responsible followership and build the capacity of individuals to participate in development processes.
  3. To use research to reduce conflict, build peace, and enhance good governance in Nigeria and around the world.

Rationale for FLED Institute

Human capital development is central to overall socio-political and economic development in any nation. The driver of development itself is leadership. Visionary, human-interest leadership ensures effective governance. Good governance promotes sustainable development in all societies. Evidence is overwhelming that Sub-Saharan Africa has suffered prolonged under-development due to low quality leadership.

We believe that the quest for prosperity, peace, security and sustainable development in Africa rests on her readiness to train, nurture and deploy quality leaders to take charge of public resources for public interest. These leaders and technocrats must be far-sighted, values-driven, creative, ethical and tolerant of human diversities and able to harness diversity for sustainable human development.

FLED International Leadership Institute was therefore established as a strategic step to groom a critical mass of leaders and technocrats.  Since 1999, The Institute has carved a niche in the area of professional leadership and institutional development. 

Public Leadership Induction

The Institute inducts qualified individuals from around Africa into Public Leadership. These leaders become part of our ecosystem of learning leaders, who collaborate to promote the principle of transformational leadership in Africa.
