Winter 2019 – Jake Harriman – Marine and founder of NGO Nuru International, speaks about “Others First, You Last”

“Others First, You Last: Unlocking the Potential in Teams to Accomplish the Impossible” In a series of compelling illustrations drawn from his own life, Mr. Harriman, former Marine, and founder of the NGO Nuru International, shares four principles of servant leadership he thinks are vital to success. From his days in combat during the Iraq war, to his work in Kenya organizing local farming communities in using sustainable agriculture, he found that effective leading involves trust, decisiveness, moral courage, ongoing interaction with all levels of a command or organization, humility, leaders consistently rolling up their sleeves and working alongside those they lead, or leading from the front. Each of these key points is illustrated by someone that Harriman had worked with, either in the Marine Corps or in Kenya.
