We the Peoples

by Kofi Annan

Most of us I am sure have heard the name Kofi Annan somewhere in our life. As for Kenyans we know him as he came to help restore peace during the 2007-2008 post election violence. Kofi Annan was the 7th Secretary General of the United Nations (UN). In this book Annan talks about the big problems the world faced during his time and how he and the UN as a collectable were looked upon to solve the issue at hand. This book teaches us about making the right decisions as a leader and finding practical ways to solve big problems in a way that it is a win-win situations for everyone involved. In this book Annan teaches us that different situations and problems require different leadership style but he still amplifies the fact that working together as a team is the best way to solve problems at hand. In this book we see how Annan criticized the unilateral use of force and how he always wanted to keep the peace as he believed in every situation peace was the right thing.
