In 2019 Leavers To Leaders had a 10-year vision –The TriAtis Way 2030: To run leadership sustainability training, to develop this generation and the next- which is all in line with the Development Goals 4 (SDGs) to improve youth literacy. We have now rooted the SDG 4 across all our training platforms, including and in particular our workshops in not just the formal training programme but in all aspects of our leadership development accelerators for senior & middle management. Through a strong dedication from the top, and passion and energy of Samuel T. Reddy, CEO of TriExForces we are now partnering with companies & organisations under the Development Goals 17 (SDG17) who understand how the multiplier effect of literacy empowers children, enables them to participate fully in society and contributes to improve communities.
Samuel is a multi award winning member of the British ExForces, an International Bestselling author of the book Leavers To Leaders, which has reached an Amazon #l bestseller in the UK, USA, Australia and Canada. As an inspirational Keynote Speaker, he usually talks on various topics including the ‘3 L.O.S of Leadership’ & the’Leaders Operating System’. Born in Mauritius, Samuel grew up during a time of sugar cane plantation from a working class family and speaks English, Creole and fluent French. Samuel used his passion to reinvent himself and continuously improve his transitional journey. Now he’s ready to put his considerable focus on a new mission: to elevate the lives of thousands of others who are frustrated, undervalued and overlooked.
Introduce your approach to integrating SDG 4 into leadership?
Since 2019 Leavers To Leaders has adopted an early signatory to cultivate sustainable leaders to solve the world’s greatest challenges as part of the Leaders Operating System (L.O.S). The close alignment of the L.O.S with TriAtis mission and values plays a central role in our training, research and partnership policies and strategies. As an training organisation operating in the UK and the Sub Saharan Africa we want to strategically position ourselves to develop leaders who not only can deal with the context of change and adapt unique leadership approach to challenges of the future but also develop new strategies when it comes to dealing with ambiguity and leadership to move forward. Hence why we are also aligned with SDG17 – partnership for the goals to issues such as ensuring quality education for all, access to primary & secondary education, early childhood development, relevant skills for decent work, gender equality and inclusion, universal youth and adult literacy and educating our youth for sustainable development and global citizenship. At TriExForces we believe in better self for a better world.
How did you develop this strategy?
We worked with various organisations in the UK from military, police , universities and the NHS to develop leaders during their leadership transition for sustainability (LTS-UK) under our accelerators. But in 2018 the 12 big companies in the world including the top 3, Apple, Amazon & Google announced that they will no longer require employees to have a college degree. This is now being followed by many organisations because the new digital world we are now experiencing with COVID 19 is fast speeding and it is nowadays a lot more easier to access knowledge and information to grow and develop, but literacy and reading is at the core of it. Working with many leaders who are facing career transition, It has become very clear that our future leaders need to be more creative, have the ability to think critically to solve problems and become more confident in their approach to life.
Our CPC model is designed to have this in mind, and this is why we are on a mission to support as many children to join ‘The SugarCane Boy BookClub’, we call it the TriAtis Way. We now putting teams in place to deliver our accelerators to young children in a fun and enjoyable way.
What’s next? Over the next few weeks, responding to Covid change, we are focusing on leadership & career transition across many areas in Mauritius. People have now suddenly come to realise a job is not for life and in a changing world you have to continuously reinvent yourself to be ahead of the game. So each time an individual or a corporate buys our products and services, they are also enabling us on our mission to improve youth literacy in Mauritius, specially for the underprivileged.
