Leaders Create a Compelling Vision


One of the most important things a leader does is set a vision.  To create a vision, leaders need to be aware of their gifts and limitations, desires and dreams, and be attentive to the needs of the world.  A leader’s vision gives a team direction, a common purpose for shared work, and motivates the team.  Equally important, the leader must communicate this vision in such a way that it inspires others to participate in making this vision a reality.

Leaders Make the Heroic Spiritual Journey


To create and communicate a compelling vision, leaders need to possess self-awareness.  They need to make the journey to the depths of who they are, discovering the light and shadow within themselves.  They need to understand their gifts and limitations, fears and unfreedoms, hurts and insecurities so as not to project them outwardly on others.  This deep work leads to deep living, which enables deep satisfaction.

Leaders Discern and Empower Others


As leaders make the inner journey, they have greater self-knowledge and clarity.  They understand their strengths and biases around decisions. They recognize personal patterns that can cloud their judgment, and distort their decision-making capacities.  Wise leaders are humble and open enough to listen and seek council from others.  Furthermore, they are secure enough with themselves to create the space for others to flourish.  They recognize others gifts, talents, ideas, and foster a culture of collaboration.
