Invictus: A Change Communication Case Study

While good films about leadership are fairly abundant, films which illustrate the challenges inherent in change communication are far rarer. ¬†One recent film which brilliantly tells a change communication story is Invictus. ¬†Invictus details how Nelson Mandela’s keen understanding of resistance and symbolism pointed him towards South Africa’s national rugby side, The Springboks, as a vehicle for drawing Black and White South Africa closer in the wake of seismic changes following the transition to Black majority rule.

My review of Invictus is now published on Communitelligence, and can be found at
