In her leadership column for Forbes, Ruth Blatt mentions Oana Branzei‘s chapter in Jane Dutton and Gretchen Spreitzer‘s new book, How to Be a Positive Leader:

“Leaders who are able to truly have a long-lasting influence are those who give us hope. In a chapter in the recent book How To Be A Positive Leader, professor Oana Branzei of the Richard Ivey School of Business at Western University defines hope as the belief that people and situations can and will change for the better. Political leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela or religious leaders like Mother Theresa and Archbishop Ddesmond Tutu had their powerful impact because they convinced others that a better future was possible and doable.”
