8 Ridiculously Epic Leadership Lessons from Nelson Mandela

No. 1: Courage is not the absence of fear — it’s inspiring others to move beyond it.

No. 2: Lead from the front — but don’t leave your base behind.

No. 3: Lead from the back — and let others believe they are in front.

No. 4: Know your enemy — and learn about his favorite sport.

No. 5: Keep your friends close — and your rivals even closer.

No. 6: Appearances matter — and remember to smile.

No. 7: Nothing is black or white.

No. 8: Quitting is leading, too.

That man is a beast.
