This study examined and validated revised and new spiritual leadership models with higher-order factors in the Korean organizational context. Research on revised spiritual leadership models has not yet been conducted in the US context and no empirical research on new spiritual leadership models has occurred in South Korea. Structural equation modeling (SEM) results revealed that the revised spiritual leadership model had validity in the Korean organizational context. Inner life plays a foundational role having a positive relationship with three factors of spiritual leadership: vision, altruistic love, and hope/faith. Membership doubled the impact on team productivity and life satisfaction over calling/meaning. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
