By Kris Deichler, Associate Partner, Lighthouse International

“You have a limited time to stay on earth, you must try and use that period for the purpose of transforming your country into what you desire it to be; a democratic, non-racial, non-sexist country.”

- Nelson Mandela

The hallmark of a really great legend and inspiring leader is their desire and ability to live according to positive and inspiring values that help define their character. They put self-importance aside and make their life about expressing the qualities they care about.
