While many threats confront strategic leaders, none is more lethal than the internal threat of despair that leads to suicide. Future leaders need an in-depth understanding of the complexity of suicide. The seeds of suicide are First, personality development in which the child experiences a psychological woundedness Second, the inability to deal with the nature of loss resulting in loss of self Third, the subsequent isolation that prevents one from obtaining help. This study suggests that hope is a powerful counterforce to despair and suicide. One source of hope lies in the assurance of Gods faithful promises of the future. Thus strategic leaders must, above all, be people of hope in the face of despair.
