Inspired leadership

Who is there to tell prime ministers and other chief executives what to do and how to lead? They may have experts and advisers to help them, but for many top people in large organizations—business, religious, and others—as well as in government, ultimate responsibility for leadership and decision-making is not shared. It's often said that life at the top is very lonely.

But it will not be lonely for those who gain an understanding of the true, spiritual nature of leadership. When one discerns even faintly what is (or should be) leading, and what constitutes reliable leadership, the burden will begin to lift. Moreover, when good leadership is recognized to be more a matter of spiritual followership—of consecrated adherence to a spiritual ideal—than a personal responsibility to find human answers, leadership will inspire more confidence and have more power to solve worldly problems.
