On This Day: Charles Darwin - the English naturalist, known for his theory of evolution by way of natural selection - passed away in 1882.
When Darwin first published On the Origin of Species in 1859, his theory that animals and humans share a common ancestry shocked religious Victorian society and exploded into public controversy.
We are inspired not only by the theory itself, which we can apply to show that it is the most resilient and nimble leaders who end up the most successful, but also by Darwin's extraordinary courage to challenge the status quo, risking his reputation for something that would ultimately revolutionize the course of science.
