THE SHORT WALK TO FREEDOM Robben Island seminar

Prison_Gustav"We as leaders are all prisoners without knowing: Prisoners of paradigms, prejudice end personal pain. If we can learn from prisoners of the past, we can shorten our walk to freedom to leave longer time for leadership in our respective circles." - Gustav Gous.
