According to GhanaPa.com analyst, one of the characteristics of a good leader is 'boldness' in persistence of his purpose, the fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.
All great things take time, and you must persist no matter what. That’s what it takes to be a leader, willingness to go beyond where others will stop.
Nana said, 'he had said so and will continue to repeat it.'
Nana Akufo Addo said, "I am not interested in Politics because of what I will gain for myself"
"I did Not Come To Politics Because of Money" because I have my own profession.
If you come into public service, it is exactly that, public service.
He goes on to tell all those who want to help him in government, must understand from day one, it is public service
but if they are coming because money, then they should go to the private sector.

I did Not Come To Politics Because of Money - Nana Akufo Addo
“Many of my leadership philosophies were learned as an athlete. My most successful teams didn’t always have the most talent but did have teammates with the right combination of skills, strengths and a common trust in each other. To build an ‘overachieving’ team, you need to delegate responsibility and authority. Giving away responsibilities isn’t always easy. It can actually be harder to do than completing the task yourself, but with the right project selection and support, delegating can pay off in dividends. It is how you truly find people’s capabilities and get the most out of them.” — Shannon Pappas, senior vice president, Beachbody LIVE. / GhanaPa.com
“It takes real leadership to find the strengths within each person on your team and then be willing to look outside to plug the gaps. It’s best to believe that your team alone does not have all the answers— because if you believe that, it usually means you’re not asking all the right questions.”
— Nick Woolery, global director of marketing, Stance Socks / GhanaPa.com
“You must love what you do. In order to be truly successful at something, you must obsess over it and let it consume you. No matter how successful your business might become, you are never satisfied and constantly push to do something bigger, better and greater. You lead by example not because you feel like it’s what you should do, but because it is your way of life.”
— Joe Perez, cofounder, Tastemade / GhanaPa.com
“Patience is really courage that’s meant to test your commitment to your cause. The path to great things is always tough, but the best leaders understand when to abandon the cause and when to stay the course. If your vision is bold enough, there will be hundreds of reasons why it ‘can’t be done’ and plenty of doubters. A lot of things have to come together—external markets, competition, financing, consumer demand and always a little luck—to pull off something big.”
— Dan Brian, COO, WhipClip / GhanaPa.com
“My main goal has always been to offer the best of myself. We all grow—as a collective whole—when I’m able to build up others and help them grow as individuals.”
— Christopher Perilli, CEO, Pixel Mobb / GhanaPa.com
“If people aren’t aware of your expectations, and they fall short, it’s really your fault for not expressing it to them. The people I work with are in constant communication, probably to a fault. But communication is a balancing act. You might have a specific want or need, but it’s superimportant to treat work as a collaboration. We always want people to tell us their thoughts and ideas—that’s why we have all these very talented people working with us.”
