This paper places the ’V’ factor at the epicentre of meaningful and productive living; learning and leadership endeavour. It explores the authors’ reflections upon their own professional experiences; research studies and review of the literature as they work towards establishing ’working with’ leadership practices appropriate for a knowledge era. This paper also reports on Nanschild’s preliminary PhD research findings of “A Values-Based Approach to Leadership Development: Implications for Organisational Change”
