The article discusses the significance of creating abundance in leadership. The authors state that good leaders create a sense of abundance in terms of meaning, purpose, and hope that engages people and delivers result to stakeholders. They say leaders should learn how to make meaning and create a sense of abundance not only on what needs to be done but also on how it feels to do it. They claim that a crisis of meaning is always a crisis in leadership and abundance is not only a prerogative for the rich and prestigious but also for the poor and mediocre.
