“What we mean by ‘being given being and action by something bigger than oneself’ is being committed in a way that shapes one’s being and actions so that they are in the service of realizing something beyond one’s personal concerns for oneself – beyond a direct personal payoff. As they are acted on, such actions create something to which others can also be committed and have the sense that their lives are being given being and action by something bigger than themselves. This is leadership!”
