Why We Look for Wisdom in Our Leaders

Wise leadership gives people the confidence that important decisions will be given the thought they deserve and that their work lives will not be dealt with lightly, frivolously, or disrespectfully. We want to know that if we put our fate, at least our professional fate, in the hands of a leader, he or she will treat that as a sacred trust. When leaders are wise, we see that they’re considering our welfare and that they’ll do their best to make sure that the enterprise succeeds in a way that supports the success of the greatest possible number of us, their followers. Wise leadership feels like the safest possible harbor, especially in times of great change.
