Finding a deeply profound meaning in all we do lends a certain spiritual sanctity to our toils that goes deeper than life’s material ploys. Pursuing meaningful work provides an abiding purpose to our life and redeems our existence through our contribution. It is the quest for meaning that keeps the battle of life going in face of the inevitable. If meaning is about discovering one’s unique gifts, purpose is about sharing those gifts for the good of others. Before one becomes a leader, the focus is on discovering and living the personal meaning. After one becomes a leader, the focus is on helping others discover and live meaning in their lives.
Given the fact that most of us spend majority of our waking hours at work, it is natural to seek meaning and purpose in work and at work. To succeed in the twenty-first century, leaders of organizations must offer a greater sense of meaning and purpose for their workforce. Holistic leaders first seek fulfillment through meaning, purpose and contribution and help others to do the same. This chapter explores how holistic leaders seek and live their highest meaning and purpose. This chapter reviews the work of Victor Frankl and Michael Ray in illustrating how leaders find transcendent meaning in all they do.
