Nelson Mandela was one of the most influential political leaders in recent history. His journey was truly inspiring transforming from a prisoner to an iconic world leader who broke barriers of racism. Mr. Mandela recognized that in order for a society to be successful each person needed to feel empowered and know that they matter. Likewise, the success of any organization is forged on the backs of it's employees. Each member has the capacity to influence an organization in unprecedented ways. One does not need a title and a corner office to make a difference. The development of an organization happens with the individuals as well as the leaders.
