Leaders who give hope
“Leaders are people who offer new horizons to their followers and move people beyond mediocrity and indifference. They give hope amidst the problems of contemporary working life. They are willing to take risks and transcend boundaries. As leaders they share their experience of the mystery of God and thus bring a sense of hope to followers, reestablishing the perspective of life under God, and providing the basis for value oriented leadership.”
Leonard Doohan, Spiritual Leadership: The Quest for Integrity (Paulist Press, 2007, p.76).
