Man­dela had a way of mak­ing friends of en­e­mies and cre­at­ing stake­hold­ers out of ad­ver­saries. He did this by lis­ten­ing to oth­ers, be­liev­ing the best of oth­ers, and lead­ing both from be­hind and from the front. He un­der­stood that he was the prod­uct of an un­for­tu­nate his­tory, but he be­lieved that he could tran­scend it. We are all prod­ucts of that un­for­tu­nate his­tory, but we don’t have to be bound by it.

Hatang is the CEO of the Nel­son Man­dela Foun­da­tion
