The effect of a well-grounded, self-aware, inspirational and visionary leader who has focused their skills on an area of social jeopardy, can transform entire communities, regions, even countries. They can – and do – establish global movements against human and environmental atrocities, addressing poverty, tackling deprivation.
The impact and effect of connecting like-minded people, through shared journeys, experiences, understanding and learning, is seismic. Standing with a social pioneer, someone capable of catalysing change on a massive scale, and showing them they are not alone, but supported, heard and understood.
This releases immense potential for social change: boundaries first established to preserve self-knowledge as a personal or organisational asset, are liberated. The next generation or wider community are informed and equipped. Learning is passed on. This enables others to go further and faster.
