The article focuses on the new millennium paradigm, the macro-to-micro approach in which leaders first consider the macro needs and then formulate ways to fulfill those needs. In this approach, profits are reformatted from a starting point to a rewarding consequence of need-fulfilling actions, and gratification of all stakeholders at all levels is guaranteed. The article provides five considerations that leaders could use as a guide toward implementing the macro-to micro approach. They include needs assessment, needs analysis, needs fulfillment options, restoration evaluation and other ways of contributing to quality of life.
