Who we are
The Institute for Transformational Leadership (ITL) trains innovative leaders from all over the world and equips them to facilitate transformation as leaders serving different sectors and communities. Through the African Leadership Institute for Community Transformation (ALICT), emerging leaders interact with other leaders active in spheres of influence other than their own, and exchange insights on how best they might transform their current and future contexts.
Our vision and mission aim at seeing communities in Africa and beyond transformed through a new generation of leaders seeking to serve and live called lives, by empowering them to facilitate sustainable transformation towards healthy reconciled communities based on holistic and Biblical principles*. Emerging leaders from 111 countries have participated in ALICT, sharing cultures and perspectives. These includes doctors, lawyers, psychologists to chefs, teachers, professors; from pastors, business owners, those working in corporates to farmers, journalists, artist and non-profit leaders. Skills have been taught, new insights gained, and relationships fostered. Our foundation brings the depth of character; our approach is as much about being as doing. Our alumni are leaders with genuine character and ability to facilitate transformation and not just transactional activities.
In obedience to Gods call a unique learning experience for young, innovative and entrepreneurial leaders based on experiential learning started. Beginning in 2004, the first 3-month school was hosted near Cape Town in 2004 and as it developed the 3 month learning experience grew into something wider ITL was born.
Our vision is to see communities and nations in Africa and all around the world transformed through a new generation of Christian leaders.
Our mission is to empower emerging leaders to facilitate sustainable transformation towards healthy reconciled communities based on biblical principles.
To lay down our lives, desires, pursuits and rights to lead those God has called us to. Putting their needs before our own.
Be committed to lean on one another, to stay accountable as Christian leaders, to ask for help and to be vulnerable in community with each other.
To love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love and care for our neighbour as we would ourselves.
To communicate, to stay connected, to get feedback and thoughts from others before we take action, to value people more than tasks and accomplishments, to share worship, struggle, success and life together.
To innovate, to explore, to live free from the fear to fail, to push ourselves artistically, intellectually, and spiritually, to break free from the confines of conventional paradigms related to our professional fields, faith, leadership and lifestyle.
