Examples of Level 5 Leaders
Harry Lagad
I always relate Level 5 Leadership to two key people that I have studied in depth. Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi. Both worked for the people and the a goal that was far more difficult than compared to just making a company or an organisation to surpass their shareholders expectations. Gandhi took immense personal pains and sacrifices to reach the goal and lead from the front, igniting the minds of the people rather than forcing them to change.
 

 
Chain of Level 5 Leaders
Thomas Mathew, Management Consultant, India, Member
We can link more leaders here who lived in this world separated by time and separated by geographical boundaries. Let me start from Thoreau who lived in U.S.A. His article 'civil disobedience' was first published in 1849. After his life time Gandhi read that article while he was in South Africa and later in India as part of freedom movement, he initiated 'civil disobedience movement' that literally shook the British empire. Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela got influenced by Mahatma Gandhi and they changed the world in their life time. Would we have seen Obama as president if Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln did not exist? This kind of chain will continue, keeping the world going, in spite of negativity getting built across.
Level 5 leadership is beyond time and beyond boundaries.
