In leadership, mission means a clear statement of why one should be given a particular position to lead. Great leaders leads by example. Mission-driven leadership comes from the heart. It requires talent and confidence.

VISION: Vision is an essential means for focusing attention on what matters most; what you want to accomplish in life and what kind of leader you wish to be. It represents who you are and what you stand for.
The importance of vision cannot be overemphasis and great leaders always have good vision. A true leadership vision advocates a more substantive change in direction. Vision entails three key ingredients viz:
Plans and prioritizes
Define and communicate vision.
ETHICS: It means being smart, intelligent, proactive, and thoughtful and also being morally right and good. It is an accepted standards of conduct and behavior. A belief that something is very important. So as a great leader you must ethically upright.

EQUALITY AND RESPECT: Equality means the state of being equal, it is the quality or state of having the same rights, social status, etc. while respect is a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc, and should be treated in an appropriate way.
Freedom and equality are foundational values that we draw upon when envisioning a better society. Our equal rights to a fair trial, to vote in election, to association, speech and religion are each an equal right to a sphere of freedom.
Equality is about creating a fairer society where everyone can participate and has the opportunity to fulfil their potential. It is mostly backed by legislation deigned to address unfair discrimination based on membership of a particular group.
Respect, also called esteem, is positive feeling or action shown towards someone or something considered important, or held in high esteem or regard. It conveys a sense of admiration for good or valuable quality.

Participation requires that all groups, particularly those most vulnerable, have direct or representative access to the systems of government.
PERSONAL PRESENTATION: Personal presentation is a communication skill, and communication is one of five important life and work skills one can build as a young professional.
Personal presentation means the way you present yourself in everyday situations, and more stressful ones like job interviews. However, personal presentation always involves at least two people – the person presenting themselves (you) and the person receiving the presentations.
Effective presentation skills are important because they help keep a presentation interesting, help the presenter communicate with confidence, and motivate the audience to listen. Some essential presentation skills are: creating variety, speaking with optimal audibility.

Team building is a collective term for various types of activities used to enhance social relations and define roles within teams, often involving collaborative task. Many tea building exercises aim to expose and address interpersonal problems within the group.
The importance of team building includes:
Networking, socializing and getting to know each other better.
Teamwork and boosting team performance
Competition and bragging rights
Celebration, team spirit, fun and motivation.

MEASURABLE ACCOMPLISJMENTS: An act or instance of carrying into effect; fulfilment. The accomplishments of our desires. Something done admirably or creditably. Anything accomplished; deed; achievement, a career measured in a series of small accomplishment. It also means exercising leadership, authority and influence. Handling challenge, complexity and change. Measurable accomplishments can include charitable work, entrepreneurial success, establishing good relationship with others. They reflect psychological, emotional and professional success.
A great person is willing to help anyone that need it. A great person is respectful of other people’s feelings and needs, but holds his or her position highly and never retreats from negative situations, but only stays in them to make peace.
I personally hates when people celebrate and spend so much during burial/funeral that will not yield back anything. It is so unfortunate that where am from, people valued funeral so much that they can go borrow money to make sure they organize a befitting funeral for their lost ones.
As to my personal self, I never want anyone to so much see me as important person because of my level of education, how influential I am, because am wealthy vice-versa. But I desired to be remember for the number of lives I have impacted positively and how I have help the young people to be more successful not because I am too intelligent.
I don’t want a long funeral. And if you get somebody to deliver the eulogy, tell him not to talk too long. Every now and then, I wonder what I want him to say.
I will want him not to mention tat I have won many noble prizes-that isn’t important. Let no one know where I went to school, I’d like somebody to mention that day that Okachi Dominic Eneji tries to love somebody. I’d like for somebody to say that day that Okachi Dominic Eneji tried to give his life serving others. And I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity.
I want you to be able to say that day that I did try to feed the hungry. I want you to be able to say that I did try in my to clothe the naked.
I just want to leave a committed life behind. And that is all I want to say. If I can cheer somebody with a well song, if I can help somebody as I pass along, then my living will not be futile.
I want to leave behind a society where education is being acquired without debt afterwards. A free education (scholarship) for all irrespective of religion and other socio-economic factors from birth to adulthood.
I want to leave behind a society or generation where life-long learning, enough education and skills acquisition is the major priority of the people in the fast growing workforce of our generation especially the young people.
I want to leave behind a world where children are being protected and thereby expressing their fundamental rights and ensure a society of gender equality where women are given equal right in the society.
Because when women succeed, then the world will be save.

Personal Presentation. This is basically how a person represents themselves to the public. However often personal representation can be confused with one’s ability to be smart or a person of value in society. An example is Steve jobs whose personal presentation was a simple black turtleneck. If a non tech savvy stranger looked at him on the street they would never know that he revolutionized the way people use smart phones. Therefore from this we learn that personal presentation might be deceiving and thus one has to really get to know someone before judging them on the way they present themselves.

A leader must be able to present the difficult situations facing the group to them in a way to encourage them stay strong and overcome.

If they are getting much respect and getting more attention in public life, it will also be termed as a measurable accomplishment. It generally refers to your positive outcomes. Like Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi fought against White Supremacy, in return they won in their battle. These is measurable accomplishments.
