a fresh perspective on management.

Leadership = Transformational Leadership

An interesting definition of leadership that I found:

OB theorists refer to this kind of leadership as 'Transformational Leadership'. The opposite of TL would be 'Transactional Leadership', which is basically a carrot and stick style of leading people.

The idea of lifting "man's vision to higher sights" also finds support in the Hindu philosophy of Karma Yoga, which basically says that self-realization can be achieved through selfless work i.e. one views oneself as being part of a cause that is greater than oneself.

I am thus inclined to believe that Hitler's followers must have been much happier than Henry Ford's employees.
