The crisis of the modern world is a crisis of magnanimity, a crisis of greatness. Consumerism and moral relativism have spawned generations of small, self-centered people on the make: creatures without a past, without a homeland, without family and without God.
We must stop this process of zombification of the human being. We must re-establish the human person. We must lift up our heads, affirm our dignity, and discover the greatness for which God created us.
Our mission is to ignite hearts for greatness, to raise up a new generation of Virtuous Leaders empowered to transform Life – business, family and culture – and spread a vision of leadership which is consistent with the highest demands of human nature and the noblest aspirations of the human heart.
OUR DEFINITION OF LEADERSHIP
Leadership is about achieving greatness by bringing out the greatness in others.
Management is about getting things done. Leadership is about helping people grow.
True greatness is not about conquering an empire. It is about human, spiritual growth.
Greatness is the result of the practice of the virtue of magnanimity; service is the result of the practice of the virtue of humility.
Leadership is a way of being, which can be lived by everyone no matter his or her place in society or in any given organization. Leadership is not about rank or position or being on top of the heap. Leadership is not reserved for the elite. It is a vocation not of the few, but of the many.
We are on a mission to ignite hearts for greatness and raise up a new generation of virtuous leaders empowered to transform the world.
We dream of a world full of virtuous leaders in all human activities who will transform all dimensions of life, culture and business, and so lay the foundations for a new civilization.
Become a Supporter of Virtuous Leadership
We believe that each and every person is created for greatness and endowed with an unimaginable dignity that can be realized only through the cultivation of the virtues of the heart: magnanimity and humility.
We believe that leaders are not born, they are trained. That leadership is not a matter of mere technique, but an act of character. You are not a functionary, but a diamond that must be refined and perfected to achieve its true brilliance and radiance.
We believe that "freedom is not a right, but an obligation," (Solzhenitsyn) and that true freedom is impossible without Virtuous Leadership.
We believe that each person recognizes in their heart the incredible call to discover their mission, to become their true selves — the call to greatness and service.
Therefore we will "make no little plans, for they have not the magic to stir men’s blood" (Daniel Burnham). We will instead dare greatly to achieve true greatness by bringing out the greatness in others.
