LEADERSHIP AND SPIRITUALITY
The best leader is one who inspires, encourages and sustains. Leadership is both a responsibility and an opportunity, a powerful and lonely job at the same time. For leaders to nourish and stimulate others, they need to stimulate themselves and stay motivated. Spirituality and a belief in the strength of the inner spirit is very often the core strength of great leaders. They have no ego and see themselves as part of a larger cosmos, brought on this earth to perform a duty. Their reward is not in ovation or gratitude from the public but in good responsible service. The best leader is one who is also the best servant of the people.
