In Memory of Martin

In Memory of Martin

Hello everyone, welcome to a special mini-episode of Mentored. I’m your host, Carson, and today, we have an episode that was hard to record and is very close to my heart. We’re here to honour the memory of a man who has made an indelible impact on our lives, our leadership journeys, and the world. Today, we remember my friend and cohost, Dr. Martin Sanders and share his sudden passing on January 8, 2024.

Dr. Sanders was not just a mentor to many; he was a catalyst for change and a visionary in the truest sense. As the founder and president of Global Leadership Inc. since 1995, he dedicated his life to nurturing leaders across the globe, fostering character growth, and sowing seeds of transformation in over 30 countries.

His role as Director of the former Alliance Theological Seminary doctoral program further showcased his commitment to leadership development. His wisdom, compassion, and unwavering faith left an indelible mark on those fortunate enough to cross paths and study with him.

I remember once, during one of our many conversations, Martin said something that’s remained with me. He said, ‘Leadership is about being intentional. It’s about shaping character, not just skills.’ He lived and led by this principle, and it’s a sentiment that’s echoed throughout our Mentored podcast series.

So even though Martin is gone from us in this world,

As we remember Martin, we also look ahead, committed to carrying on his legacy. Mentored Podcast will continue and over the coming episodes, we’ll continue to delve into the principles that Martin held dear – character development, intentional growth, the soul of leaders. We will still be able to hear that unique voice as we share stories, anecdotes, and insights that help mentor leaders. In this way we get to reflect on the lessons he’s left us with.

Finally, I want to take a moment to say how much I appreciate that we were able to capture a year’s worth of episodes with Dr. Sanders on Mentored. His teachings, his wisdom, his laughter – they are with us, forever encapsulated in these episodes, and we hope they continue to guide and inspire you as they have us.

So, join us today as we remember, reflect, and celebrate the life of a truly remarkable man and my close friend, who has now joined his beloved Dianna and is cheering us on from a heavenly vantage point. – Dr. Martin Sanders.”
