Spiritual-Based Leadership Research Interview Excerpts

During each of our interviews with business executives and other leaders, we followed a specific, 1-1/2  to 2-hour interview format (see the left column to download the interview template).
We began by asking them to share their career history and current responsibilities, and then asked in-depth questions about their spiritual view of life and personal spiritual evolution.


From there, we focused on the more practical aspects of their leadership and asked them to share stories that demonstrated how they lead from a spiritual basis. Finally, in the last portion of the interview, we asked a variety of questions about general issues of leading an organisation, such as their views on the purpose of business and their inner processes for making decisions.
