At a time when folks are occupying Wall Street, the gap between CEO and worker continues to widen, and more of the nation's wealth is centered in the pockets of a few at the top, it might be difficult to hear the voice of a corporate leader. It might be worth the time, however, to listen to Harry Kraemer, a former CEO and a professor at the Kellogg School of Management. It's a book about business leadership, but I think that clergy can learn from it as well.

Four values provide the foundation:

1. Self Reflection
2. Balance and Perspective
3. True Self Confidence
4. Genuine Humility.

With these firmly in place one can begin to develop a values based organization (sure a church is such a place) and then lead the organization not only to success by socially responsible significance.

Take a read.
