This year’s conference theme: Authentic Leadership is based on the premise that authentic leaders are genuine or real.  From research, Authentic Leadership concept is still developing and seeks to address people’s insecurity (lack of confidence/trust) in leadership and their desire to have leaders who are honest and “good” (Northouse, 2016).

Delanyo Adadevoh, statement that “A society cannot rise up above the character of its leaders.”  The statement sums up key lessons from the previous conferences in relation to addressing the challenges Kenya is currently grappling with especially corruption. They are an indication of values majority of the citizens refer to as the norm and hence choice of leaders elected or appointed perpetuating the vice.

To address the above challenges, a pathway that guides the society towards becoming ethical and developing authentic leaders, who are emotionally intelligent, uphold integrity and embrace accountability & transparency is a step in the right direction. In addition it is also an opportunity to encourage and support Authentic Leaders who are making a positive influence within their sphere of influence.


TLG held its first inaugural conference “Leading with Integrity” on 7th November 2016 at Tangaza University College with over 210 participants. The Key note speaker was the Governor of Central Bank of Kenya, Dr. Patrick Njoroge.  The second conference was held on 14th July 2017 with the theme: Leading Change: The Challenge. There were over 300 participants and the conversation was relevant/ timely, with the call to Kenyans, to be the change we desire as a Nation.

Participants were from various organizations in leadership positions within the public and private sector this included; Government, Churches, Universities & Colleges, NGO’s NPO’s Corporates and Entrepreneurs.     From the feedback and evaluations of the past two TLG conferences, objectives were met and recommendations indicated the need to hold follow up workshops and conferences that continually equip and empower participants to positively transform society.

Therefore; TLG held two follow up workshops in partnership with Executive Leadership Network (ELNET) and Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC). TLG in partnership with Tangaza Student Association and EACC launched Tangaza Integrity Movement at the University, with the aim of helping students develop, uphold and advocate for ethical values.

Conference Objective:  The overall objective for TLG conference’s is to inspire, equip and empower leaders on how to continually take appropriate action within their spheres of influence and lead with integrity towards positive transformation in society in line with the above theme.
