Dynamic Leaders and Gatekeepers Forum (DLGF) has said moral decay, erosion in ethics and social misconduct among Malawians are a display of leadership bankruptcy.
The forum’s general overseer, Reverend Zacc Kawalala, made the remarks ahead of the group’s second forum scheduled from May 27-28 2016 in Lilongwe.
DLGF, which was launched in 2015, is a leadership forum designed to raise Godly leaders in the professional workplace with a passion to make a difference.
In a telephone interview on Thursday, Kawalala emphasised that Malawi is in need of leaders who will be true agents of the change that integrates their fundamental values with ethical business conduct, leading to beneficial permanence in society.
“There is a general consensus that there is a leadership bankruptcy in our country. We have organised this forum to bring a birthing of such in the various sectors of our nation,” said Kawalala
He said time had come for Malawians to interrogate themselves about the role of personal faith in the performance and discharge of business in the marketplace.
“The Lilongwe forum has been organised in such a way that it combines structured and practical interactive sessions to engage all participants in considering their moral responsibility as they discharge their functions, at any level, within the parameters of ageless biblical principles,” he said.
Kawalala further disclosed that DLGF will use carefully selected facilitators who have survived the changing work environment through their personal display of integrity. This, he said, will accord participants the privilege to receive personal practical experience and be provided with a networking opportunity through which personal linkages with the facilitators will be established.
An invitation to the forum, which Nation on Sunday has seen, indicates that individuals or companies who wish to participate are invited to buy individual tickets or corporate tables. n
