2013 Grounded Leader of the Year – Nelson Mandela

Nelson_Mandela-2008_(edit)Most leaders are measured by what they do in the world – their accomplishments and achievements, and their successful campaigns and enterprises. Nelson Mandela will be remembered for something very different and much more fundamental. We will remember him for who he was as a human being. In the words of fellow Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi, Mandela helped us “change the world by changing attitudes, by changing perceptions. For this reason, I would like to pay him tribute as a great human being who raised the standard of humanity.” We, at Healthy Companies, couldn’t agree more.

In the end, it was Mandela’s unique and unflagging character that defined him as a healthy and grounded leader – a leader whose influence spanned nearly eight decades, and who inspired the rich and poor, the black, white, and brown, CEOs and politicians, neighborhood kids, hardened capitalists and committed socialists. This broad appeal was based on Mandela’s essential goodness, and the lessons that goodness taught us.

In fact, Mandela may be the foremost exemplar of this paradigm in our lifetime. Rather than focusing on results, it starts with his six roots that form the foundation of healthy leadership, essential qualities that Mandela embodied. This is why he is our 2013 GROUNDED LEADER of the YEAR.

    At this time it appears like WordPress is the best blogging
    platform out there right now. (from what I’ve
    read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?

    My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and
    I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
