From the slums of Katwe, Uganda to a journey of becoming a chess champion – this is the story of Phiona Mutesi. She would have never dreamed that Disney would be making a movie on her life and would name it “Queen of Katwe,” which is now a motion picture (2016). She would have never thought that someone would be so interested in her life that she would be a part of a book, but it happened. In 2012, Tim Crothers wrote a book “The Queen of Katwe: One Girl’s Triumphant Path to Becoming a Chess Champion.” Her life of transformation is a lesson for millions of people facing daily challenges in life. Leaders can learn a major lesson about how to thrive in the current business environment from this movie too. Here are the three powerful lessons you can’t afford to miss.
This movie has been an inspiration for me. I would definitely recommend the movie because of its motivating theme. Do share the name of the movie that motivated you. I would certainly watch it and share my insights. Enjoy!
