Five Hats: The High Leverage Roles of a CEO

 

As a CEO, there is no shortage of demands on your time. Of course, that’s particularly true when you’re in growth mode, where you could be doing anything from closing the books to sweeping the floors. All CEOs wear a lot of hats. But as your business really starts to scale, you can’t do everything and still grow your company (let alone have a life outside of it).

“I’m not feeling too well, I would be working from home this week. Please ask the office to send all files to my residence so that i can work on them”. 

This was the words of a minister of the Nigerian President: Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR on Wednesday the 26th April, 2017 after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting which was chaired by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.

Thinking out loud on this action has made me question the response of many Nigerians who have said all sort of things and have even thrown tantrums at the presidency over what they call “insensitive”.

When men face uncertainties

By Samuel Stephen Wakdok Twitter: @sAMMYVARSITY

I remember an incident that happened when I was seven years old. I had gone to spend the midterm break in my uncle’s house. After a night of heavy down pour, my cousin and I went out and we saw a bird beaten by the rain.

This bird had its feathers soaked and wet making it impossible for the bird to fly. It perched under a tree and we were thrilled to have caught a bird. We took it home and put it in a cage then got some grains of millet and put a cube of sugar in water for it to feed and drink. We left the bird in the open to get some sunlight and save it from dying of cold.

SCD 101

SCD 101

Thank you for trying to know about sickle cell disease. I’ll keep this as short as possible.

What is sickle cell disease?

Well simply put by me it is PAIN! It is an inherited disorder of the blood in which the haemoglobin pigment in erythrocytes (red blood cells) is abnormal. This abnormal ‘haemoglobin-S’ crystallizes in small capillaries due to low concentration of oxygen (it is sufficient for normal haemoglobin) this causes the red blood cells to to assume distorted, making sickle like shapes. This blockage leads to excruciating pain due to tissues being deprived of blood and oxygen.

A WEEK IN A SICKLECELL FAMILY {MUST READ}

Power out, laying in the dark cuddling my buddy, my shoulder to silently cry on while retiring after the day, my dearest pillow. It has been a rather traumatic week with my faith, my body, my soul, my warrior ability being tested. It began last week finally my lil bro came home for Eid with my cousins after a rather long holiday at their place. Thankfully he had no episode while he was there.

On the Saturday of the week he arrived he started aching. His back it was, after administering routine pain killers he went upstairs to try and sleep. An hour had gone by then I received a call from my mum telling me to please come and take him to the hospital this was past 11pm. I rushed up as fast as I could and carried him to the car then drove to the hospital on getting there I realised I forgot his shoe as I was in a major haste so I had to carry him all through (not like he could walk due to the pain), after about an hour at the clinic we went back home. I got him on his bed then left for my room praying I don’t get my own share of episode after the last one I had a month and half ago.

Johnson's Dillema

Looking intensely at the readings, Doctor Olamide Pedro folded his sphygmomanometer and placed it gently on the table, unwrapped the BP cuff from his patient’s arm, sat on his office table and fixed his gaze at Johnson Omotayo.

With over 30 years of professional practice, Doctor Pedro who owned and managed one of the largest private hospitals on the Island had been the family Doctor of the Omotayo’s for over ten years, infact, he personally took delivery of their 3 kids, Olayemi, Derrick and Roland. Johnson Omotayo had become his adopted son.

“Young man, I really don’t know what your problems are. With the rate at which you are going, if you don’t heed my advice, you are giving an open invitation to stroke. Do you know what your readings are? It is a good thing you came here on time. You will need to take things easy"!

“Is it OK to Have Kids?”

Is it ethical to bring a child into this broken world, where she might suffer --and partake in-- various harms and injustices? Some people refrain from having children and this choice also raises ethical issues: is it ‘selfish’ to decide not to procreate? It is tempting to dismiss such questions on the grounds that whether or not you have kids is a personal matter, and that the privacy of this subject should be respected in a liberal society.

If children were brought into the world by an act of pure reason alone, would the human race continue to exist? We  might reasonably doubt that the dictum ‘first, do no harm’ provides such sound ethical advice when it comes to procreative decisions. Every life contains some moment of misery, but as long as there is a positive outlook on the whole, one that the child  will consider worth living,  then it could not be wrong to bring a child into existence.

“Should We Be Having Kids In The Age Of Climate Change?

Ravis Rieder, a professor at James Madison University, is trying to convince students that they shouldn't have too many children. He states this because of the worsening climate changes on the planet. The fact that the society supports the traditional view of a larger family with many children is outdated, and cannot help mankind fully progress. Rather, the more modern smaller family units are helpful. He also asserts that his view on children bearing is based on moral principles, and that the far off future where the world's climate will drastically change is closer than we think. Americans and other rich nations have the most carbon emissions per capita,but people in poorer nations of the world are most likely to suffer the severe climate impacts, and that is unfair. He says we should save our children by not bringing them into this world. Sadiye, his wife, wanted to have a large traditional family, having been raised in one herself, but he was against it citing scientists who have warned that a catastrophic tipping point could be in the next decade. The Paris Agreement of 2015 can't prevent that. Also, increased world population is expected. Further, reports from the World Bank state that the world must avoid a situation where the planet will reach 4º C of warming. Mr. Rieder has a considerable number of people who share his opinions, including academics and business people, who have created companies to help combat climate change.
