Let's have some conversation with today's leading women in leadership and high level CEO's to learn how they claimed their Confidence Factor. The visionary behind this movement, Carol Sankar, commenced the Confidence Factor for Women in Leadership research in 2011 after a long successful career in real estate and law, yet taking note of the lack of powerful women in profitable industries.
Sankar developed a private group of 100 women and asked the difficult questions about profit, asking for more, and gaining access to elevated opportunities in their career and business for 4 consecutive years and measured their growth. As a result, she took her findings and started the Confidence Factor movement and round-table series for high achieving women who feel the "plateau" of success. She realized the reason why women plateaued was due to lack of confidence
.Her first book, The Confidence Factor for Women in Business, became an international bestseller. The new book, The Confidence Factor for Women: Conversations with Women CEO's, includes personal and professional stories from leaders. Readers will understand the obstacles that all women face in their journey, including Carol's journey breaking through the boundaries of women in real estate investing.
What you'll glean from this conversation: The clarity to focus on leadership; The confidence to face the obstacles; The tools to access elevated opportunities and MORE!
Carol Sankar has been featured in Madame Noire, LearnVest, The Steve Harvey TV Show, CNNMoney.com, TEDx, Entrepreneur Magazine and Essence Magazine.
The discussion this Friday will focus on Aliko Mohammed Dangote business savvy acumen. He moved from his trait approach of deft leadership to a deft situational leadership methodology of using PESTLE and SWOT analysis to scam the environment for the maximization of profit- now ranked the richest man in Africa with over $20 USA billion dollars by global financial power houses. According to Fayemiwo and Neal (2013), his humbleness, hard work, vision and most significantly his passion for business will be discussed; and this, could be leading to the building of the largest cement factories in the world. With his blessed vision and business acumen, by 2030 Nigeria population would have increased to about 280 million people and gracefully could be self-sufficient in agricultural products.

Tonight we will discuss the exact meaning of what it is that the black masses are seeking in their attempt at arena sports. Could our behavior be linked to the violent nature in which Malcolm and our other leaders died have awakened a primeval stance in our minds? As a people have we lost the ability to see humanity has gone far astray because we have not really achieved justice for our fallen? Have we really turned a blind eye to the Murder of our Beloved leader? “In America, we give maximum expression to our blood lust in the mass spectator sport of boxing. Some of us are Roman enough go admit our need of the sport. Others pretend to look the other way. but when a heavyweight champion fight rolls around, the nation takes a moral holiday and we are all turned in some of us peeping out of the corner of our eye at the square jungle and the animal test of brute power unfolding there.
Every institution in America is tainted by the mystique of race, and the question of masculinity is confused by the presence of both a white man and a black man here. One was the master and the other was the slave until a moment ago when they both were declared to be equal men; which leaves American men literally without a unitary, nationally viable self-image. Whatever dim vision of masculinity they have is a rough and ready, savage mishmash of violence and sexuality, and dichotomized exercise and worship of physical force/ submission to and fear of physical force which is only one aspect of the broken down relationship between mean and women in America. This is an era when the models of manhood and womanhood have been blasted to dust by social upheaval, and the most alienated males and females at the bottom of society move out of their place and bid for their right to be man and woman on an equal basis with the former masters and mistresses." SOUL ON ICE, Eldridge Cleaver.
The murder of Malcolm X, the exile of Robert F. Williams, who was forced the flee to Cuba with the combined terrors of the FBI and the minions of Southern justice snapping at his heels, and the exile of the late W.E.G. Du Bois, who, in the sunset of a valiant life, made three symbolic gestures as a final legacy to his people (renouncing his American citizenship, ‘returning’ to Africa to become a citizen of Ghana, and cursing capitalism while extolling communism as the hope of the future) —these three events on the one hand, and on the other hand the award of a Nobel Prize to Martin Luther King and the inflation of the image to that of an international hero, bear witness to the historical fact that the only Negro American allowed to attain national or international fame have been the puppets and lakers of the white power structure—and entertainers and athletes….
It is against the back ground of the traditional role of the Negro entertainer and athlete in racial crisis and the rebellion against that tradition — that the Muhammad Ali— Floyd Patterson fight for the heavyweight championship must be viewed." Soul On Ice by Eldridge Cleaver
"Malcolm X knew that he needed a prominent ally to help him launch a new organization once his permanent suspension became public. It so happened that Cassius Clay, scheduled to fight Sonny Liston for the heavyweight championship of the world, was a good friend of Malcolm X, one of the few people Malcolm X ever invited to this house….." JUdas Factor Karl Evanzz
"The broad support for Muhammed Ali among negroes had nothing to do with the black Muslims’ racist ideology. Even the followers of the late beloved Malcolm X, many of whom despise Muhammad Ali for the scurvy remarks he made about the fallen Malcolm….." Soul On Ice

Initial Reaction on the Assassination of Malcolm X
After Malcolm made his pilgrimage to Mecca, completing a triumphal tour of Africa and the Near East, during which he received the high honors of visiting dignitary, he returned to the U.S.A. and set about building his newly found Organization of Afro-American Unity. He established the Muslim Mosque, Inc., to receive the Muslims he thought would pull away from Elijah. The Muslim Mosque would teach Orthodox Islam, under the direction of Sheik Ahmed Hassoun from the Holy City of Mecca. Grand Sheik Muhammad Sarur Al-Sabban, Secretary General of the Muslim World League, had offered the services of Shei Ahmed, help Malcolm X in his efforts .......
"So now Malcolm is no more. The boot lickers, Uncle Toms, lackeys, and stooges of the white power structure have done their best to denigrate Malcolm, to root him out of his people's heart, to tarnish his memory. But their million-worded lies fall on deaf ears. As Ossie Davis so eloquently expressed it in his immortal eulogy. "If you knew him you would know why we must honor him: Malcolm was our man hood, our living, black manhood! This was his meaning to his people. And, in honoring him, we honor the best I ourselves..... However much we may have differed with him -----or with each other about him and his value as a man, let his going from us serve only to bring us together, now. Consigning these mortal remains to earth, the common mother of us all, secure in the knowledge that we place in the ground is no more now a man---but a come forth again to meet us. And we will know him then for what he was and is ---- a Prince ------our own black shining Prince!----- who did n't hesitate to die, because he loved us so." Ossie Davis
We shall have our manhood. We shall have it or the earth will be leveled by our attempts to gain it." SOUL ON ICE, by ELDRIDGE CLEAVER
The last part of the chapter of Huey P. Newtons "UNITING AGAINST THE COMMON ENEMY" is about the freedom fight of the Mozambique know differently, to us to day as the free Republic of Mozambique. The President during that time was visited by Huey P. Newton, he received a clear picture from the man named, Samora Moises Michael former chief of the army. The organization FRONT FOR THE LIBERATION of MOZAMBIQUE with members of one quarter of the country liberated the entire population of nine million people. Ten thousand members of FRELIMO, with an army of men ad women established over 200 programs to serve the interests of the people. The racists,fascists Portuguese in listed the help of the UNITED SNAKES OF AMERICA, BRITISH BRAGGARTS, FILTHY FRENCH, GERM CARING GERMANS, and the people arose and used what they had to fight back and won. The Boing 707 was given to the Postulating Portuguese, by the UNITED SNAKES OF AMERICA that dropped 128,000 tons of bombs that rained down on the citizens of Mozambique. The combined armies of the four invaders of over 128,000 troops of the imperialist greedy governments were defeated, in 1970. Today Mozambique is Allied with The Russian Communist state and there has been much rhetoric about this but none can substantiate their position better than Dr. HUEY P. NEWTON. "These successes have certainly not been easy. From within and from without, the people of Mozambique have suffered."
“UNITING AGAINST A COMMON ENEMY OCTOBER 23, 1971” Dr. Huey P. Newton
If we get rid of the enemy in a united common struggle it would be easy to transform this unity into a common theme of things. We are not separate nations of men to continue the pattern of fighting amongst ourselves. We are a large collection of communities who can unite and fight together against our common enemy. the United States domination over all our territories equals a reactionary (in opposition to the interest of all) set of circumstances among our communities. Reactionary Inter-communalism. We can transform these circumstances to our benefit: Revolutionary Inter-communalism.
On the continent of Africa there are people who look like us. They are Black. We are brothers because our struggle is common. We have both suffered under the White racism and under oppression. This is why we should not let the reactionaries of the world be the only ones communicating across the waters of the masses of land. We have a common interest to survive, and therefore, we can learn from each other."
"Despite their religious differences, they came together. Some were communists; some were socialists; some were capitalists. Despite their economic and political differences, they came together. All of them were black, brown, red, or yellow.
The number-one thing that was not allowed to attend the Bandung conference was the white man. He couldn’t come. Once they excluded the white man, they found that they could get together. Once they kept him out, everybody else fell right in and fell in line. This is the thing that you and I have to understand. And these people who came together didn’t have nuclear weapons; they didn’t have jet planes; they didn’t have all of the heavy armaments that the white man has. But they had unity." MALCOLM EL HAJI MALIK SHABAZZ
