I attended a leadership talk yesterday, it was such an honour to receive first-hand advice from a seasoned leader such as Elias Masilela. He shared insights about what makes a leader. One of the most profound things he said was that a good leader leads from behind. Often we mistaken leadership for charisma or those who are on the forefront.
One person who embodies good leadership is Wendy Luhabe, doing work behind the scenes yet changing and impacting the lives of many. She will be given the title of Honourary Lieutenant of the royal Victorian Order. A prestigious honour. when asked about the honour she replied saying “I have already received my recognition, and that is the impact I make on the lives of people.” Her passion to uplift women and empower them is what drives her. True leader and inspiration.
