Posted by Admin On December - 10 - 2013

EVANSTON, IL -  Nicholas Pearce, a leadership expert who is a pastor and a clinical assistant professor of management and organizations at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, is available to speak with reporters about Mandela and his legacy.

He will be in Africa from Tuesday through Sunday, Dec. 10 to 15 (he will be in South Africa Dec. 12 to 15).

Pearce focuses on collaboration and diversity in organizations. His latest work examines leadership on the national level (presidents, prime ministers, etc.) in diverse cultures and the impact that collaborative, participatory leadership can have on accelerating economic growth. As both a professor and a pastor, he brings a rare perspective to the intersection of leadership and values. “Mandela’s values of love, equality, forgiveness and reconciliation resonated through his leadership and will be a significant part of his legacy,” Pearce said.

Norton, 2012) is available to speak to reporters about Mandela and the impact of his death on South Africa.
