QuickTake: A Leader Looks Inward

An economy can't thrive without leadership. Joe Jaworski, founder of the American Leadership Institute, offers this definition:

Most leadership programs begin with a description of the attributes of the leader -- a leader has vision, a leader has courage, a leader inspires others. All of that's fine; it's very important. But what's leadership really all about? To me, leadership is a journey toward wholeness. A leader's journey starts by looking inward to understand, Why am I here? What is it that I'm here to do?

Here's a link to his book, The Inner Path of Leadership.
