Martin Luther King Jr  (b. 1929 d. 1968) was one of America’s most influential civil rights activists. His passionate, but non violent protests, helped to raise awareness of racial inequalities in America, leading to significant political change. Martin Luther King was also an eloquent orator who captured the imagination and hearts of people, both black and white.

Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997) also known as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, MC, was an Albanian Roman Catholic religious sister and missionary.Mother Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic religious congregation, which in 2012 consisted of over 4,500 sisters and was active in 133 countries

Leaders are often ordinary people who are placed in extraordinary circumstances

The Administrators of Individuals Who DARE to LEAD would like to say.... 

 

 
  

 

 



Welcome to Individuals Who DARE to LEAD, an online community of international leaders who are making a difference in their respective communities. This is the perfect gathering for individuals who are committed to becoming better equipped leaders through this leadership network. Leadership is essential to personal & professional success. Therefore it is extremely important that we are prepared for each level of leadership that we called to serve. There’s a reason that leadership is such a prized commodity: great leaders help pave the way for the world to walk a path of excellence.

You are encouraged to fully participate in this online community through your involvement in the various discussions and blogs, designing of your personal page by posting your photograph, listing your leadership positions and networking with fellow members.

It is my hope that this community will inspire you in becoming an EXTRAORDINARY leader. Extraordinary leaders seem to generate synergy and inspire collaboration. They seem to make a difference in the lives of those whom they serve.

EXTRAORDINARY leaders have often been discovered during periods of great personal, spiritual, social, political and economic struggles or conflict. Leadership just seems to be born whenever there is a great need for an individual to bring a particular situation or group together towards a common goal.

As we are INSPIRED to LEAD, Let us seek the path that GOD has mapped for our life and pursue our goals with POWER, PURPOSE AND PRAY.

DARE to LEAD.......

From the time I was six until I was fourteen years old I was mentally, physically and sexually abused by my mothers’ husband and found myself with nowhere to live my junior/senior year during high school. Even at a very young age, necessity forced me to realize it was imperative to isolate myself from my family.

What is your sentence? That was the question being asked when I turned on the radio and tuned in to a conversation between a teacher and a talk-show host. The teacher was explaining his method of evaluating his legacy and the effect he had on his students.

Focus on Leadership - Showcasing Justin Trudeau Canada's 23rd Prime Minister

Born on December 25, 1971, Justin Trudeau is Canada’s 23rd Prime Minister.

A teacher, father, advocate, and leader, Mr. Trudeau’s vision of our country is a place where everyone has a shot at success because we have the confidence and leadership to invest in Canadians.

His passion for public service and vision for Canada are shaped by his experiences and influences — his father, Pierre, and mother, Margaret; the Trudeau and Sinclair families; his roots in the East and West, French and English.

Driven by the desire to have a positive influence in the world, after graduating from McGill University in 1994, Mr. Trudeau decided to become a schoolteacher. He completed the University of British Columbia’s education program, and spent several years teaching mostly French and math in Vancouver.

In 2002, Mr. Trudeau returned home to Montreal, where he fell in love with Sophie Grégoire, a Quebec TV and radio host. They married in 2005 and, in subsequent years, became the proud parents of Xavier, Ella-Grace, and Hadrien.

Prior to entering politics, Mr. Trudeau was frequently called upon to speak at conferences and various events on youth and environmental issues. He was the Chair of Katimavik, where he spoke to young people about the value of community service and volunteerism, and a board member of the Canadian Avalanche Foundation, where he promoted avalanche safety. The more Mr. Trudeau spoke with young people across the country, the more he began to gravitate toward a life of advocacy. It became increasingly clear that the issues young Canadians care about — education, the environment, their generation's economic prospects — needed a stronger voice in the public sphere. He also began to feel that a generational change was approaching. It was against this backdrop that he made his first steps into politics.

In 2007, Mr. Trudeau decided to serve Canadians by seeking the nomination in the Montreal riding of Papineau. He was elected in 2008, and then again in 2011 and 2015.

Mr. Trudeau was elected Leader of his party in April 2013. Propelled by hope and hard work, he focused his leadership on building the team and the plan to create growth that works for the middle class, and fair economic opportunity for everyone; on respect for and promotion of freedom and diversity; and on a more democratic government that represents all of Canada.

On October 19, 2015, Mr. Trudeau led his party to victory, winning a majority government with seats in every province and territory across the country. He was elected on a platform for change and growing the middle class.

Mr. Trudeau was sworn in on November 4, 2015, with an equal number of men and women in Cabinet — a first in Canada’s history.

My Journey To Spiritual Restoration
by Ms. Gurmay Darlington; MSW,LCSW



Darlington had a rough start in life. At three months old, she was poisoned by her 12-year-old cousin. Burned and unable to swallow, she was in intensive care for several months, then discharged with a grim prognosis. But Darlington survived, only to grow up to face sexual abuse, rape, and domestic violence, plus a variety of serious medical conditions—cardiac problems, knee surgery, and the removal of a large and extremely rare tumor. Due to a medical condition, Darlington actually died and was brought back to life and began her spiritual restoration.

With the help of God, the Author and Finisher of her faith, Darlington was able to embrace the experiences that shaped her. Join Darlington on her journey to spiritual restoration, and experience the radiance that is neither electric nor sunlight but the healing light of the Lord.

KEYS TO RELEASING THE POTENTIAL IN CHURCH WORKERS & VOLUNTEERS


In this one-of-a-kind book, you will learn how to stir-up, mobilize, excite and motivate church workers and volunteers to take a more active and committed role in their places of worship, in whatever country they are located.

Let’s face it—it is a major challenge today to keep church workers deployed, motivated, productive and fired up! High worker turnover is reportedly at unprecedented levels in many quarters.

The whole idea or concept of being a volunteer worker in a church has changed from bygone days! The motivation for giving church service out of a deep sense of love, devotion and gratitude to Christ and His Church is becoming increasingly difficult to find in today’s church workers. In serving, many workers are mentally processing the question, “What’s In It For Me (WIIFM)? This book gathers into one manual the essential information, tools, techniques and knowledge needed for effectively recruiting and energizing today’s church workers and volunteers and for moving them toward greater productivity and world-class performance.

Dr. Albert Ferguson combined his corporate management experience and background with his vast church leadership experience, gained both at home and abroad, to produce this work. Managers and supervisors in the business sector and supervisors in volunteer, non-profit organizations will find this book to be a god-send.

Secure a copy at the cost of $15 from The College of The Bahamas COPYRRIGHT Bookstore, BFM’s Faith Life Bookstore or ALBANIA ACADEMY located at East Street & Palm Tree Avenue, Telephone 242-325-4827.

 
 
 

This group is designed for individuals who have been inspired to lead a business, community, civic, fraternal, religious or political group.

the people they lead, by the people who believe in them and by the people who are

prepared to follow them not out of fear, or because it may be the in-thing to do, or

because of some hypnotic spell, but because deep down there is a faith that moves them to lift us up to a height above their own in the hope that, from the lofty perch to which they have raised us, we can see what they cannot and, that having seen, we, as their leaders, can point the way forward into the tomorrows that await us all.

Fear grips Bangladesh camp as 2 Rohingya refugees killed

Fear grips Bangladesh camp as 2 Rohingya refugees killed Bangladesh police said they had shot dead two Rohingya refugees during a gunfight in a refugee camp on Saturday after the pair were accused of killing a ruling party official. Nearly a million Rohingya live in squalid camps in southeast Bangladesh, 740,000 of whom fled a 2017 military offensive against the Muslim minority in Myanmar. The incident comes two days after a second failed attempt to repatriate the refugees, which saw not a single Rohingya turn up to return across the border to conflict-scarred Rakhine state.

UK Hong Kong consulate worker Simon Cheng freed after detention in mainland China

UK Hong Kong consulate worker Simon Cheng freed after detention in mainland China A British consulate employee in Hong Kong has been freed by China after being detained for 15 days on the mainland amid rising tensions between the former British colony and Beijing. Simon Cheng, 28, a trade and investment officer at the Hong Kong consulate’s Scottish Development International section, went missing on August 8 on his way back from a work trip in Shenzhen, a neighbouring Chinese city.  It was not until after the UK expressed “extreme concern” about his disappearance that China’s foreign ministry broke its silence, confirming Mr Cheng had been detained without releasing further details.  On Saturday, his family announced that he had come back. "Simon has returned to Hong Kong; thanks you everyone for your support! Simon and his family wish to have some time to rest and recover, and will not take any interview,” they said in a statement.   An activist holds an illustration of Simon Cheng during a gathering outside the British Consulate-General building in Hong Kong  Credit: AFP Chinese police in Shenzhen confirmed that Mr Cheng had been detained for violating public security management regulations, and was released after that period on Saturday.  Police also said he had “confessed to the facts of his illegal activity,” without saying what those activities were. Mr Cheng was not formally charged or tried in court, and his family rejected allegations in Chinese state media that he had been detained for visiting prostitutes.  On Friday the UK issued a warning to all travellers to Hong Kong about increased scrutiny from mainland authorities at border crossings. The warning added that mobile phones and electronic devices were being checked by border patrol. Mr Cheng’s mysterious disappearance highlights China’s murky legal and judicial system – something that help kicked off mass protests early June in Hong Kong. Many fear freedoms enjoyed in Hong Kong, guaranteed for at least 50 years under an agreement that became effective when the former British colony was returned to Beijing, are fast-disappearing under China’s ruling Communist Party.  Hong Kong crisis | Comment and analysis Millions first took to the streets against a now-suspended extradition proposal that would have sent people to face trial in mainland China, where Communist Party control of the courts contributes to a 99.9 per cent conviction rate. Forced confessions are also common with suspects paraded on state television. “What happened to Simong Cheng – this is a common tactic used by the central government to put pressure on people,” said Kammy Yang, 50, an office clerk at a protest on Saturday. “Many Chinese activists were accused of prostitution or tax scams; this is their strategy in China, trying to suppress freedom.” Thousands of protesters on Saturday engaged in a series of skirmishes, throwing projectiles from bricks to petrol bombs at police who responded with sprays of tear gas and rubber bullets. It was the first time tear gas had been deployed in 10 days, a period of relative calm as protesters recalibrated their approach in an otherwise tumultuous, violent summer.  Demonstrators join hands to form a human chain during the Hong Kong Way event in the Central district of Hong Kong, China, on Friday Credit: Bloomberg “The reasons why protesters are building roadblocks, surrounding police stations, and throwing bricks – it’s because the government doesn’t respond to us,” said Vaso Chan, 28, an office clerk. “It’s not fun for any of us to come out during summer break.” Protesters spray painted slogans like “Give me liberty or death,” Chinazi,” and “HK popo Gestapo,” on sidewalks and highways. As the political movement has grown, so have protesters’ demands, who are now calling for an independent inquiry into police handling of the protests, the resignation of Hong Kong chief executive Carrie Lam, and direct leadership elections.  City leaders however have made no concessions, instead thrusting the police to the front lines to handle the situation, further angering protesters.  Demonstrations are occurring nearly every day now in the financial hub, disrupting traffic and public transportation. On Saturday, several stations closed along a planned march route. But despite growing unrest, public support for the protesters has stayed strong, with marches and strikes planned through September. “No matter whether those protesters are peaceful protesters or protesters that are standing in the ‘front lines’, no matter what they do, we will support them,” said Mr Chan.


Chinese ship inches closer to Vietnam coastline amid South China Sea tensions

Chinese ship inches closer to Vietnam coastline amid South China Sea tensions A Chinese survey vessel on Saturday extended its activities to an area closer to Vietnam's coastline, ship tracking data showed, after the United States and Australia expressed concern about China's actions in the disputed waterways. The Haiyang Dizhi 8 vessel first entered Vietnam's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) early last month where it began a weeks-long seismic survey, triggering a tense standoff between military and coastguard vessels from Vietnam and China. The Chinese vessel continued to survey Vietnam's EEZ on Saturday under escort from at least four ships and was around 102 kilometres (63 miles) southeast of Vietnam's Phu Quy island and 185 kilometres (115 miles) from the beaches of the southern city of Phan Thiet, according to data from Marine Traffic, a website that tracks vessel movements.
