Being a benevolent leader isn’t about being a philanthropist or a humanitarian. It’s not about being altruistic. There’s nothing lofty about it. It has nothing to do with self-important concepts. Benevolent leadership is about something much more pragmatic. It’s about creating greater possibilities for yourself, your community, and the world at large.
Benevolent leadership goes beyond being “ethical” or fulfilling social responsibilities. It is an entirely new way of being and functioning in life. Benevolent leaders shift away from the mindset “I have to get my share.” They give up using and abusing to get what they want and instead embrace generosity of spirit and a benevolent way of being that looks at the different futures that can be created.
When you become a benevolent leader, you become the catalyst for a different possibility in the world.
Being a benevolent leader is not about being kind to others. It’s about creating a sustainable future for the world and ourselves. It’s about the capacity to perceive the totality of life and the unlimited possibilities that benefit not just you, but all people who are impacted by your choices. In our view, leaders can accomplish so much more when they use their awareness to address significant societal and environmental needs. This is true innovation.
