For every leader, there’s an Elevation. What's an elevation? A moment or series of moments of clarity that can be put into action to elevate your life or purpose. We elevate through empathy, respect, inspiration, impact, and maybe most of all, diversity of thought. Why do we do it? Leaders are taught to be so self-reliant, that they often lose themselves. We believe that clarity of purpose is a human necessity and that sharing is the best philosophy for leadership. We turn the challenges we face into conversations and those conversations into clarity.

    #88. Segway to 'FIRST' | Dean Kamen

    With more than 150 patents under his belt, including the Segway, portable energy and water purification devices, and even a prosthetic arm for a maimed soldier, Dean Kamen is respected as one of the most innovative creators of our time.

    Revolutionizing attitudes toward a better quality of life for all, his team at DEKA Research and Development has brought portable dialysis machines, a vascular stent, and the iBOT, a motorized wheelchair that climbs stairs, to fruition. Yet, this hasn’t been enough for the college dropout. A huge believer in education, he established "FIRST" (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a nonprofit uniting 191 countries to inspire teenagers to pursue careers in science.

    Join us as we discuss the power of youth, turning dreams into action, and how Dean's passion to ignite the creator in all of us can elevate our planetary solutions for the greater good.

    #89. Change Catalyst | Candice Mama

    In 2017, Candice Mama was honored with the Human Beacon of Dignity Award in New York (Columbia University), presented by Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Evelin Lindner, for her significant contribution to forgiveness and reconciliation.
    Understanding that love and hate cannot coexist in the same space, Candice's story encompasses the forgiveness of Eugene de Kock, a former South African Police colonel, torturer, and assassin, who operated under the apartheid government. De Kock, nicknamed 'Prime Evil,' was sentenced to 212 years in prison on 89 charges, including the murder of Candice's father, Glenack Masilo Mama.

    Join us as we delve into her journey, the power of forgiveness, and the introspection required to close chapters and embrace new beginnings.
