The Spiritual Leadership Dimension In Relation to Other Value-Based Leadership in Organization
Christea Frisdiantara, Pieter Sahertian

The aim of this article is to explore the concept of spiritual leadership in the context of organization and to show the several means by which spiritual leadership can be related to existing value-based leadership theories, especially relationship oriented and servant leaderships, though the direction of such an inquiry still requires much more observation, development and discussion. This article would also discuss several beneficial perceptions and motivations which have stimulated the interest to understand deeper the spiritual leadership in academic and business settings. This article will be concluded with an argument that gaining deeper insight on the theoretical base of spiritual leadership in relation to other leadership theories is necessary so that this concept can be a valuable paradigm for the organization. Using rational-empirical approach, where inquiry is conducted based on data from various literature review (grand theory) and previous research findings, this study is expected to provide further contribution by showing and focusing on the relation between spiritual leadership and other value-based leadership theories and provide contribution for critical and theoretical understanding, which is necessary for the development of spiritual leadership which was initially a concept into a paradigm which has the potential to be applied in the organization. The result of this study shows that despite the relation between spiritual leadership and other value-based leadership theories, however gaining deeper theoretical insight into spiritual leadership is still an important objective, especially to be related to other leadership theories.
