“Are we humanitarians, or are we not?”

This simple question, posed to Fletcher alum Sasha Chanoff (F04) during a rescue mission in the Congo, changed him forever. The MAHA graduate told me about this defining moment in his life, where he took a leap of faith that enabled the escape and ultimate survival of refugees beyond the scope of his original mission. This experience led him to Fletcher and to found RefugePoint, a non-profit organization that provides lasting solutions for those who fly under the radar of humanitarian aid workers and are therefore the world’s most at-risk refugees.

Sasha joined me to discuss his newly released book, From Crisis to Calling: Finding Your Moral Center in the Toughest Decisions, which explores the crucible moments that leaders face that define their personal leadership style and the impact they can have on the world. You can hear his riveting story through our conversation in the video below:

As always, thanks for reading.
