Discover™, the groundbreaking Peak Performance training program was released by CSD-Africa (the organization behind Project SPiD-UP®) in partnership with the Christian Leadership College of RoyalHouse Chapel International at the Judah Temple of RCI on the 10th of September, 2016.
In an event held in honour of The Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah, Apostle General of Royal House Chapel International, over a hundred persons were taken through the two-day Program that featured; Performance Awareness, Self Esteem, Critical Thinking, Career Pathways and Spiritual Awareness. Crowning the event was the official launch of the SPiD-UP® Performance Recognition Program during which several personalities were recognized for their performance in various areas. Project lead Markus Katey in an interview with the press said project SPiD-UP® was created to solve the performance problem of the continent by developing high performance consciousness through various vehicles. The SPiD-UP® Mini-College, through which Discover ™ I & II and other programs will be delivered, is the vehicle through which the training objectives of the project will be carried out. He explained that
Discover™ is the first of five peak performance focused programs that will be delivered.
The program, driven by a lot of reasoning, is designed to shape the thoughts of students of the Mini-College into performance conscious persons who will influence any group they find themselves in with high performance. Mr. Markus Kennedy Katey, who is a performance coach and a minister of the Gospel, explained that Christ commanded his followers to be light of the world and salt of the earth. He said a true follower of Christ astonishes others with what they do as Jesus did in his ministry. Christ he said was a high performing individual given what he accomplished over the three year period in which he ministered. Being ordinary or average is therefore in violation of this command. He also said that anyone who is familiar with the truism “as a man thinketh, so he is” will agree that human behavior begins with thought. Human reasoning, he said is key among God’s gifts to mankind and makes all the difference between what is human and what is not. Because of this the program employs a lot of reasoning.
He pointed out that; while there are many high performing personalities on the continent, the average African does not appear to have the required character traits and mentality that makes a high performing personality. Explaining the concept of modelling, he cited the Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah as the perfect example of the salt and light personality and explained that an understanding and emulation of the character traits of such persons could be of great benefit to any person who decides to rise above average.
He announced that while Discover™ I and II will be available to the general public for free across the continent eventually, it is currently available in three partner locations in Accra i.e.; Christian Leadership College (RCI) in Kaneshie, Jam International Academy in Dansoman and Lifetime Empowerment Center in Ashongman Estate.
He concluded that in order to reach the set objectives of the project, the training programs will be free for all to attend at the nearest location and at their convenience since it is paid for by donor and sponsoring partners. He said “we are happy to partner with individuals and organizations who are excited about the future of Africa and are willing to contribute to shaping it as we are at CSD-Africa”. He acknowledge contributors to the development of Discover™ which include Snr. Min. Isaac K. Yawson; lecturer, management consultant and organizational behavior expert, Jennifer Agyeman; NLP Practitioner and image consultant and Rev. Sally J. Armah; Theologian and lecturer.
He finally threw an open invitation to all educational institutions and the general public to participate in the programs for a better Africa.
