Be a hope-based leader, not a fear-based one

(Kimball, 2011)



“Be a hope-based leader, not a fear-based one” is a blog post from an article I wrote for which was published on July 29, 2011 (please click on the above link to read the post.  Note, the photo was chosen by KSL editors).  This piece was written when I was completing my doctorate at UNLV.

Essentially this piece is about how to be a hope-based leader opposed to a fear-based one.

Hope-based leaders exist in workplaces.

So, too, do fear-based ones’

And in homes.


They serve on committees.

Are present in marriages, etc.

This piece explains how one can become a hope-based leader particularly if they are a fear-based one.

I also share my own personal experience with a fear-based leader and how it fueled me to want to be even more hope-based.

Please take a moment to read my blog post on

I hope it inspires you to always want to be hope-based no matter what type of fear-based leader you encounter.  That is what I did.  And that is what I strive to do.

My advice to you, no matter what, be hope-based!  😉
