Transformational Leadership is leadership that is led and enabled by a leader’s vision and inspiration. It has significant influence in that it motivates others to commit to the group’s purpose and mission. One of the greatest transformational leaders is Nelson Mandela. The movie “Invictus” does an incredible job of showing how Mandela transformed a nation.
After serving 27 years in prison for several capital crimes, Mandela was released and made it his goal to help establish democracy in South Africa. In 1994 Mandela was elected as South Africa’s first black President four years later. Throughout his presidency, Mandela’s government carried out a number of progressive social reforms to reduce the social and economic inequalities in South Africa. Truly, Mandela’s vision and inspiration changed the hearts of an entire nation.
