Moral leaders see the path ahead as a journey and frame it explicitly as such for those whom they lead. In so doing, they leverage what journeys are about: focusing on the progress, not just on results and the bottom line. Journeys challenge us to be resilient and hopeful, because journeys are hard, long, and curvilinear. They go up and down, they zig and zag. Journeys force us to learn, adapt, and experiment - and to embrace and learn from mistakes and failures as we strive forward. The ability to do these things together, to stick together when up or down, calls forth from us all that is moral. What makes it moral is "how" we journey - how we maintain hope, truth, and the will to find our way when we are lost.
