Nelson Mandela is a particular case study in leadership world because he is universally regarded as a great leader. Depending on the nation various people have different opinion about leadership, but Mandela is regarded as great leader across the world. He was asked by the reporter how did he learned to be a great leader. He was actually the son of tribal chief. He responded that he used to go in a tribal meeting with his father and he remembers two things from those meetings:
- They used to sit in circle
- His father was always the last to speak.
Being last to speak is one of the crucial part of leadership world. This gives everybody else the feeling that they have contributed to the meetings or the project and you can hear other opinions before rendering your own.
