This chapter outlines strategies for promoting Ethical Leadership through individual and collective spiritual development. Spirituality equips leaders to act as both moral persons and as moral managers through providing a sense of mission and meaning; focusing attention on the needs of others; fostering humility, integrity, and justice; highlighting universal moral principles; and generating feelings of hope and joy. Leaders nurture their personal spiritual development by discovering their vocations at the same time they engage in self-reflective practices and serve others. Organizations encourage the development of spiritually sensitive, Ethical Leaders by creating a compelling vision, fostering intrinsic motivation, promoting shared spiritual values, and making space for the spirit.
