Programme Summary

The KENAFF Leadership Development Programme is a project aimed at building foundational leadership capacity for leaders at all levels within the Kenya National Farmers' Federation (KENAFF). The primary objective of the program is to equip KENAFF leaders with the essential skills, knowledge, and mindset required to effectively lead and drive positive change within the organization and the agricultural sector as a whole.

Recognizing the significance of strong leadership in the success of an organization, the program focuses on developing the leadership potential of KENAFF leaders. By investing in leadership development, KENAFF aims to strengthen its leadership pipeline and ensure that leaders at all levels possess the necessary competencies to address complex challenges, make informed decisions, and inspire others.The program encompasses a wide range of activities designed to build foundational leadership capacity.

These activities include workshops, seminars, training sessions, mentoring, and coaching. Through these interventions, leaders are exposed to various leadership competencies such as strategic thinking, effective communication, problem-solving, decision-making, collaboration, and emotional intelligence.

One of the key objectives of the program is to establish a shared leadership vision and values among KENAFF leaders.
