She is also a board member of the International Third World Leaders Association, an organization dedicated to training and developing leaders in over 80 developing nations.

Her leadership training methods are mostly based on or derived from the principles and teachings of Dr. Miles Munroe. Elements of these methods are:

  • Changing followers into leaders,
  • The power of authority/Submission to authority,
  • The right environment for growth,
  • The power of self management and moral standards,
  • The power of hardships, if no risks are taken, no change will be experienced,
  • Vision and succession, a vision is greater than the leader and does not relate to only one generation. Success is no success without a successor. Our success must be able to outlive us. Every generation has its role to play in the accomplishment of a vision. An effective leader identifies and prepares the next generations to continue in his footsteps and passes the baton to his successors,
  • Transformational Kingdom leadership, in displaying true leadership we will be able to maximize our potential and use our gifts and talents to transform followers into leaders and leaders into agents of change.
