Drawing on the lives of some of the greatest political, intellectual and religious leaders of modern times, and the author’s personal experience, VIRTUOUS LEADERSHIP demonstrates that leadership and virtue are not only compatible, they are actually synonymous. It demonstrates how virtues such as magnanimity, humility, courage, and self-control promote personal transformation and the attainment of self-fulfillment. It also considers the Christian supernatural virtues of faith, hope and charity without which no portrait of leadership can be complete. The final section offers practical guidelines for interior growth tailored to the needs of busy, professional people intent on imbuing their lives with a transcendent purpose. Paper.
