On Wednesday, May 28, 2014 we lost one of the world's greatest thinkers, Maya Angelou. Looking back on this phenomenal woman's life, we are reminded that great leaders aren't just people who display one grandiose act of transformational leadership. Instead, they display small acts of leadership throughout their entire life.
Maya Angelou didn't just wake up one day as a respected poet, actress, director, author, professor and civil rights activist. Only after years of cultivating her consistency of purpose was she considered a valued thoughtleader across the globe. In 2011, President Obama presented Angelou with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest award a US civilian can receive.
