Until recently Luis Urzua was a man unknown to the world.
Luis Urzua, the Simple Chilean foreman become an overnight hero and leadership example used across many global forums, management seminars and now my blog…
In 2010, the San Jose copper-gold mine in northern Chile caved in trapping himself and 33 men 700 meters below the ground. Luiz single-handedly coordinated the survival and rescue of the men.

Detailing every aspect and condition of the situation underground, he made a precise map of the surrounding and coordinated with the team above the ground for the rescue efforts. Eventually, he was the last man to be rescued after the others and with calmness, he said: “It’s been a bit of a long shift.”
