In the nation building, together, better tomorrow, start today.


By: Daniel Abushery Daniel


The great International emblem of Justice and freedom fighter, former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela said: “there is no easy walk to freedom”.


A famous politician once said, “The longer the title the less important the job.” If that’s true, then there are many people in South Sudan who're working behind the scene without acknowledgment from neither their bosses nor the public. I am convinced that at the heart of every successful organization is a titleless person or people just workaholics to get the job done, and do it well to the best of their abilities. 


In fact, a title is not a job description. Virtually, when it comes to true power, titles are frequently misleading, even at the level of directors or CEOs, or an organization's head who is disliked can be all but ignored by those under him/her, while a respected employee with a lower title can wield significant influence on what others do and how quickly they do it. Influence or inspiration comes from the person, not the position.


Philips of Macedonia, the father of Alexander the great once said, “An army of deer led by a lion is more to be feared than an army of lions led by deer.” That may be true. But I believe that; “An Army of lions led by a lion is to be feared most of all, for its unstoppable leadership is intimidate linked to service. However, my personal experience as a customer service representative my entire career as a Banker, I can relate to the bankers old saying, “We can’t help them all, but one at a time”.  Let our confidence in our leaders be solid and unshakable so that they may be able to do what we all expect of them.


Furthermore, the worse thing that can happen to our leaders in south Sudan Institutions is to exhaust their intellectual capital. They must constantly refresh themselves by gathering new information and thinking critically and creatively for what's best for our nation. And yes, there are some real challenges ahead, but with our unconditional support, those problems could be solved very easily, and we can all see the light at the end of the tunnel. 


In my previous conversations with people and community leaders over the years, they’ve talked frequently about how important it is to motivate others, to keep the fires of passion and commitment burning in their teammates, and colleagues. When bad things happen to a good people, we say they are “Victims of circumstances” yet it is easy to spend too much time feeling like a victim, rather than asking “what I am going to do to make it better?” The fact is, we can learn from difficult situations or languish in them. The decision is ours.


When it’s comes to problem solving in today’s complex world, complete solutions are rare. Usually, there isn’t a single ground answer, but many answers that require the contribution of many different people or parties- always remember, “Spotting a problem is easy, but solving a problem is harder.” Ample time is needed to make a decision. Therefore, we must develop a capacity and the cooperation to deny a safe haven to any arm groups threatening our government and the communities in southern Sudan.


Unfortunately, however, most people would rather complain than contribute to a solution. The truth is everyone has a good idea. Our problem isn’t the lack of ideas, but rather a lack of putting those ideas to work for our nation. 


When I was in college, during the political debates with students from Northern Sudan, they used to say, sarcastically, that; “Southerners are corrupt and uncivilized people. And if the South parts away, its future are doom due to the fact that they can’t govern themselves, and it will be chaos in the south, they said."


Guys, we don’t want Jallaba to laugh at us. This is not the cause that our fathers and uncles died for. We can do better than that.


The point I am trying to Illustrate is that; the number one reason why people quit their jobs is lack of appreciation. Everyone wants to feel significant and to be recognized for what they do, therefore, we should always encourage and thank our leaders instead of cursing, and calling them names. When they do an outstanding job, we need to let them know. That way they will win our trust, and we will boost their energies and lift their morals to more. Again, am not suggesting that our leader should have a free ride, but we have to criticize them in a constructive way,  


In conclusion, you should not let resistance stops you. Whenever you seek to make change, you encounter resistance, whether from a spouse, an employee members or coworkers. There is always a head wind facing those who move confidently forward, don’t confused resume skills with leadership skills. The greatest satisfaction often comes from meeting challenges head-on, anyone, anywhere can make a positive difference. You don’t need a title to be a leader.
