Meet Visionary Leader , Daniel Udo: Director of Rural Development Federal Ministry Of Agriculture

* Why He bagged Icons milestone National Leadership Gold AWARD 2018
By Chief Mike De Ceruti Osagie 

Globally revered Daniel Goleman once referred to a visionary leader as The leader who is inspiring in vision, and helps others to see how they can contribute to this vision; allowing the leader and followers to move together towards a shared view of the future.
In essence , A visionary leader is an individual who sees the potential for how the world should exist and then takes steps to get there. You can achieve visionary without a leadership role—become an idea man for instance. And, you can successfully lead people to accomplish a course of action, while not having a vision for the change you’d like to create.
Such is the manner that Mr Daniel Udo, the Director of Rural Development Federal Ministry of Agriculture in Wise Zone 5 Abuja can be described as
A recipient of several National Awards, he was recently honoured with the distinguish National Leadership Gold Award 2018 by the renowned Icons Milestones Communication AWARD & Event monitoring Group

The D' Linidga award by Icons milestone is a second national AWARD project which is dedicated to men and women who have done remarkably well in their chosen field of endeavour...these are people whose tenacity and sagacity are worthy of emulation
No doubt, Mr Udo, Director of rural development at the federal ministry of agriculture is a leader worthy of emulating
An investigation carried out by World Leaders online magazine showed the following attributes of this diligent government top official
* Qualities of A Visionary Leader
Risk Taking
Change is never risk-free . And it’s rare that the solutions come immediately. George Washington didn’t trounce the British in the first battle. Defeating the British took years. It took sacrifice the sacrifice of many people who were committed to the vision of self-governance and freedom from English control.
You don’t need to put your life on the line—Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos slept comfortably at night over the years—but you may need to put your livelihood on the line. Jobs was fired from his own company. Visionary leadership is all about change and change means risk-taking.
Contrary to popular opinion, a visionary leader doesn’t just go forth ignoring all the naysayers and do what he or she thinks is best. Yes, you will find that there are a lot of naysayers that you need to ignore, but you also have to listen to what people are saying .
This makes the difference between the big idea guy and the visionary leader. If you’re not willing to listen and accept advice, look at how the market is changing, and take feedback seriously , you won’t succeed. It’s fine to say, “No, I’ve considered all of those possibilities and I’m still moving forward with my idea.” But, if you haven’t considered the other possibilities, you’re setting yourself up for failure.
A good leader hears the voices of your team members. And your team needs to feel heard by their leader. You aren’t a real leader unless people follow you voluntarily, and for that to happen, they need to feel heard.
Takes Responsibility
A visionary leader knows that his or her ideas are different and are a significant risk and the people that follow such a leader are also taking a chance in doing so. So, it’s critical that you take responsibility for your actions and your vision.
This is not only when events go poorly—it’s also to make sure that they don’t go poorly in the first place. The leader is responsible for ensuring that the finances are available to pay people and keep the project moving forward. You must ensure that you treat people fairly .
Remember, having a vision is much like having a child. You would do anything and sacrifice everything for your child, but when you want anyone else to participate in raising that child, you have to pay them. A vision is the same: you cannot expect your team to sacrifice like you are willing to do. It’s not their vision; it’s yours.
A visionary leader can become a great force in changing the world or an industry, but this leadership and participation aren’t always necessary. Sometimes you need a leader who just keeps people enthused about staying on the same path. But, when you need change, you often need a person with a vision.
Visionaries look at the status quo and see how they can make the situation different , instead of just making the current situation better.

~ No Doubt, these are some of the attributes the organisers of Icons milestone must have seen in Mr Daniel Udo before deciding to honour him with the prestigious National Leadership Gold AWARD 2018
May his good works continue to speak for him for the total benefit of the Country as a whole
