Leadership Initiatives

Inspired by first-hand knowledge of the White Lions,
Linda Tucker has led leadership courses since 2005

In 2007, Linda presented her eco-cultural programs for talented children to Nelson Mandela. These program have continued to grow into a StarLion™ program, with grassroots in the rural communities surrounding White Lion territories – and globally.

In 2012, she founded the Academy for Lionhearted Leadership™ attended by local community leaders and students from around the globe. The purpose of the Academy is to promote LionHearted Leadership™ to enable future leaders from all walks of life to become powerful agents of change, willing to challenge existing paradigms and champion new ways.

The 13 Laws of LionHearted Leadership™ are Linda Tucker’s legacy.

“LionHeartedness” as a concept was defined by Linda Tucker through the example of Maria Khosa, a Lion Shaman who rescued Linda from an angry pride of lions in the wilds of Timbavati in 1991. Based on this life-changing experience, Linda’s definition of LionHeartedness is: 
That quality of Fearlessness inspired by Love and Respect for our natural world, that enables us to change our human world.
It makes us unstoppable.”

“Love is the governing force behind true leadership – which is defined by 13 LionHearted Laws”

– Linda Tucker

We will be joining him in his prayer and ask that, in your minute of prayer, you contemplate the White Lions as bringers of Peace. ... See MoreSee Less
