The Values of “Insightfully Aware” Leaders

The Values of “Insightfully Aware” Leaders | Organ Donation & Transplant Matters Resources | Scoop.it

 

Values are the principles and standards that motivate us in life. They are our basic convictions; our belief that tells us what is right, good, or appropriate for a particular situation.

 

 

Values serve as guidance through which all decisions are assessed and are an important aspect of leadership. Also values are central to "authentic" leadership.

 

This well written piece expands on the importance of having values and why the values that are espoused by the leaders within an organization are extremely important.

Why is organ & tissue donation taboo for Kenyans?

Why is organ & tissue donation taboo for Kenyans? | Organ Donation & Transplant Matters Resources | Scoop.it

There is an urgent need for corneas that can then be used to correct the vision of patients affected by disorders of the cornea including keratoconus. Although corneas are imported into Kenya, the cost is prohibitive for many patients as well as the health system. Hence there is a real need to improve the rates of tissue donation along with the rates of organ donation in Kenya so that more patients can benefit.

 

Attempts are being made to educate people in the community with some of the medical professionals now raising awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donation in order to assist with leading the efforts to achieve much needed change in Kenya.
