Mandela exemplified all the qualities of a great leader...
Nelson Mandela, or “Madiba” as he was affectionately known, has died.
Not only have we lost a great man and a great leader for his country, but also a shining example of the kind of leadership we so desperately need today, has left a huge inspirational vacuum...
Mandela lived for 27 years in prison, mostly on Robben Island, where every day with a small hammer he broke rocks apart in the blazing sun only to retreat into his only home, an 8’ by 8’ cell.
Mandela helped to unite South Africa as it dismantled apartheid, the cruel system of white minority rule. He symbolized for all of Arica a commitment to democracy and freedom.
Mandala once said, “It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur.
You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.”
In many ways, Mandela was a mindful leader, having invested hugely in developing his self-awareness and managing his emotions...
The truly mindful leader gets their own life in order first before engaging in advising others to do the same.
What a stark contrast Mandel’s life was compared to the behavior of many political and business leaders today who take credit and want the limelight when things are going well, and blame others and avoid responsibility when things go badly.
The predominant leadership style today in many organizations continues to be egocentric, aggressive, self-serving and lacking in empathy and compassion for others.
Nelson Mandala was a beacon of hope, and like Ghandhi before him, a shining example of what a leader can and should be. A man of great compassion and forgiveness and humilty. He will be sorely missed, but as has been said, “
“When you live on the hearts of those you love, you will never die.”
Just ask any person in a leadership position and they would tell you that they love working and making a difference for the organization or the society. But asked about the biggest challenges in their leadership?
