Abstract

This paper is an illustration of the case study of trying to create an awareness of Sejahtera leadership as practiced in Malaysia that could be linked with the pillars of Gross National Happiness in Bhutan. Some of the principles of this intervention and the key process used in developing Sejahtera leadership are highlighted. A brief background of why the Sejahtera Leadership Initiative (SLI) undertook the Sejahtera journey is given along with the approach and the process used, based on historical indigenous values. Events leading to a sustainable and balanced relationship between humans and nature have been a part of the socio-cultural makeup of all ancient societies. This means that relationships must be nurtured in everyday life as a fundamental part of Sejahtera; they must be cherished, protected, and lived by. The development of other internal processes customised to design multilateral advisory relationships is also outlined. This paper combines two perspectives in this case study; the etymology and cultural context of Sejahtera leadership and the external advisory linkages to parts of the process. The objective is to share insights from best practices to enable other stakeholders to benefit from this experience.
