Her research reveals the need for genuine compassion, the practice of values, the balance of intellect and emotion, and the ability to incorporate new and existing leadership styles. A Holistic and humanistic values-based leadership model meets these evolving needs, ensuring that the leader is respected, followed, and also trusted during the country’s most demanding missions.
