Listen First, Lead from Behind
One of the country’s most powerful women, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation President and CEO Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, MD, MBA, calls that the best advice she ever received in a recent “Influencer” post on LinkedIn. The advice, Lavizzo-Mourey writes, came from Nelson Mandela.
One of her teachers and mentors, the legendary Samuel P. Martin III, MD, taught her “the Mandela axiom.”
“Decades later,” Lavizzo-Mourey writes on LinkedIn, “it is a lesson that I continue to draw from every day.”
Lavizzo-Mourey’s post is part of a series in which LinkedIn Influencers share the best advice they’ve ever received. Read all the posts in the series here.
