Leadership for the Greater Good

A Guide for Truth to Power Champions

A synopsis

Azim Khamisa’s twenty-five years of extensive global speaking, books, and media coverage spawned a forgiveness movement that has reached millions. Now Khamisa calls for a new kind of leader—a satyagrahi leader—to fol­low in the footsteps of some of the world’s most inspiring role models. Building on Mahatma Gandhi’s practice of satyagraha, a method of using passive resistance to spark political and social change, satyagrahi leaders balance their ambition with their spirit and use their skills to benefit the larger community with a strong adherence to truth. To address society’s most daunting challenges, today’s leaders need three things: (1) to be brilliant in their professions, (2) to work to create effective, viable, and affordable solutions to societal ills, and (3) have strong moral, ethical, and spiritual values. This triad of competencies is critical to tackling the current degradation of society. As you ponder these attributes, how many leaders come to your mind?

The leaders in this book are of different races, genders, faiths, and nationalities, thus introducing the idea that these distinctions are not important in the development of satyagrahi leaders. You will be sur­prised that the chosen leaders are not famous people that may come into your mind. Rather they are rare and relatively unknown heroes who are indeed exemplary of the above competencies and are chang­ing the world. It is Khamisa’s hope that the emerging and existing leaders who read their stories will be inspired to emulate these competencies and help move us to a world that is inclusive, in service of others, compassionate, and one that works for everyone.
