This article reflects on the need for dynamic leadership. An organisation's functionality is dependent on the intellectual, emotional and physical energy which the people involved in the organisation are willing to contribute. The process of energy release is determined mainly by two concepts: vision and mission. A vision is inextricably linked to a strategy. Leadership plays an essential part in the realisation of an organisation's vision and mission. In this article different leadership models are discussed. Autocratic leadership is critically analysed. Dynamic leadership, which encompasses inspirational and imaginative leadership is discussed. The community of faith and society both have a life-long need for inspirational leadership.
