Paying Tribute to Madiba

Thorburn Northern Region shared a few of the leadership lessons taken from the life and legacy of Madiba with our employees in a communiqué sent out by MD, Dolf Scheepers.  

He made me want to be a better man”, President Barrack Obama (USA) –  (10 December 2013 Soweto SA) in reference to former President Nelson Mandela.  These are truly highly inspirational words perfectly suited to the influence that Madiba had on the world. 

“In many of the Thorburn Leadership course materials we refer to a leader as “being the visible father“.   Having listened to and read the comments made about Madiba and being a citizen in his era of leadership, it is clear that he was indeed the visible father.  It is so interesting to listen to and read what world leaders, ordinary citizens, opposition politicians, sportsmen etc. have to say about Nelson Mandela – a true hero and icon of the entire world.  President Obama referred to Madiba as the genius leader of the 20th century!”, said Dolf Scheepers.

What did Madiba bring about that we can learn from?  A culture of forgiving, reconciliation and nation building despite having been incarcerated for 27 years of his life.

What are the lessons for Thorburn staff?  There are so many lessons we can learn from Madiba, a few of which we share with you:

– Our Thorburn leaders must be visible fathers to our employees
– There is no place for racism or hatred in our company
– We are to respect each other  –  show your respect
– We are to reach out to each other, to our communities and even to our enemies (the handshake between President Obama  and President Castro from Cuba is probably the biggest symbol of reconciliation facilitated by the passing on of Madiba)

“He made me want to be a better man” – President Obama USA

 Our symbol of mourning, the black arm bands issued to 1000 employees, was our sign of respect.
