Abstract:

Leadership courses so often fail short of their goal. Although critics blame this on a failure to communicate leadership skills adequately, I suggest it has more to do with a failure both to tap into a leader's source of inspiration and translate it into a powerful leadership tool. Today, the issue of inspiration is being taken seriously in general leadership literature: We want to know what leaders deem purposeful work, who they are, and what makes their careers meaningful; what enhances their personal interactions; and how they inspire others.
