This project looks at the role and impact community leaders walking in holistic wellness have on community wholeness. The lack of information on holistic wellness has impacted the leadership and community development necessary to address the brokenness facing both. This project contributes to the development of transformational leaders as they serve as pioneers in the process of bringing about solutions to community wholeness. Transformational leadership must involve considering the holistic well-being of all people.
Therefore, several research methods were used to demonstrate the interconnectedness of each aspect comprising holistic wellness including the spiritual, physical, emotional, mental, social and economic well-being of individuals and communities. The research methods also determined where there were gaps between the knowledge that one’s holistic wellness is important to his or her effectiveness and fulfillment as a leader and one’s actual total well-being. The research also showed the significance of an individual’s holistic wellness in the process of pursuing wholeness of communities.
