We are truly saddened to hear about the passing of Nelson Mandela, who singlehandedly taught present and future generations of children and adults what it means to be a self actualized human being, a thinker with self awareness of the essence of life and worth, and someone who practiced what so many just preach: stand up for what you believe in.
Nelson Mandela was a pilot in the truest sense of the word; for people in his country, but also for people worldwide.I think Nelson Mandela would have made a fantastic social entrepreneur, and an even better mentor in Real Time.I only have his virtual mentorship to guide me, his “voice” added to the many voices in my head, herding me on my own entrepreneurial journey. My CTA for more women to join the Entrepreneur Revolution, its sibling the Tech Revolution, and their offshoot; the social entrepreneurship movement.

  • 1. Nelson Mandela Educator, Mentor, Leader, Human 1918-2013 Entrepreneurial Retrospective by Penina Rybak Founder/CEO Socially Speaking LLC
  • 2. Mandela singlehandedly taught present and future generations of children and adults what it means to be a self actualized human being, a thinker with self awareness of the essence of life and worth, and someone who practiced what so many just preach: stand up for what you believe in......
  • 3. The World Needs More Leadership The social entrepreneurship movement is growing rapidly because people are increasingly hungry to reclaim their humanity and bring out the best in themselves and others. It begins with an idea that gains momentum, spurs key "chess players" to make a move, and subsequently change the face of history. Like Mandela, who stood up for what he believed in....
  • 4. The World Needs More Leadership It’s time to birth and foster more philanthropy, social entrepreneurship, and empathy, all of which need to be interwoven and embedded into one's thought leadership; one of the most meaningful legacies a person can leave behind. Thought leadership is not only a digital marketing tactic and CEO's strategy to provide a bird's eye view into company culture. It is not only a way for writers/authors to get on a soapbox, to stand out and showcase their genius (or lack thereof)....
  • 5. The World Needs More Leadership When done right, thought leadership can enhance one's balancing of humanity vs. technology, nourish one's cerebral thought processes with one's emotional attunement, and propel a person's career trajectory. This is especially true of entrepreneurship today....
  • 6. What Makes for a Good Leader and for That Matter, a Good Entrepreneur? Exhibiting both architectural prowess (planning) and eloquent artistry (execution and storytelling), sensitivity, and grace. All are needed to propel one’s balance of humanity with technology and intellectual honesty with emotional attunement; both of which are needed to solve real problems, and incidentally profit from creative disruptive innovation.
  • 7. What I Learned From Nelson Mandela The greatest leaders first learned about their own potential by being moved by the Story of others and seeing patterns in that “voice”, helping them find their own. That is the essence of Theory of Mind and Emotional Attunement, something female entrepreneurs have in spades, and need to remember....
  • 8. What I Learned From Nelson Mandela Fostering change; economic, social, educational, and technological is as much an internal thought process and emotive experience as it is an external marketing campaign. It begins with being influenced by virtual mentorship, and using those lessons to connect the dots and plant seeds for your own entrepreneurial trajectory....
  • 9. What I Learned From Nelson Mandela Real mentorship is invaluable and needed, but virtual mentorship i.e. thought leadership forums (blogs, social media marketing campaigns done with emotion, depth, and humor) give the competitive, solitary, emotionally fragmented and sometimes grueling nature of entrepreneurship its wings to be free, and be more in touch with humanity....
  • 10. The Pilot: Crossing the Bar evening star, Sunset and And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea, But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crost the bar. - Alfred Lord Tennyson
  • 11. "I like good friends who have independent minds because they make you see problems from all angles." - Nelson Mandela - Nelson Mandela Nelson Mandela was a pilot in the truest sense of the word; for people in his country, but also for people worldwide. He exemplifies the concept of global impact and global friendship. He exemplifies the prototype of thought leader and social entrepreneur.
  • 12. We are all left with his virtual mentorship and legacy to guide us, his voice added to the many “inner voices” in our heads, herding us on our own journey towards more selfactualization as human beings and entrepreneurs. We just need to heed our own voice, and create our own takeaways from the teachable moments all around us....
  • 13. The World Needs More Female Leaders and Entrepreneurs.... I wish you all continued growth in your own friendships and journeys towards the pursuit of balancing humanity and technology. I wish you all good fortune in finding both virtual mentors and real mentors to bring out the best in you, and help you find ways to use your Story to help others.... - Penina Rybak MA/CCC-SLP, TSHH Director: The NICE Initiative for Female Entrepreneurship
