AbstractThis paper introduces an expanded, qualitative, nomological theory of self-leadership – referred to as Self-Action Leadership – that employs metaphorical analogues rooted in atmospheric and astronomical science. The theory was designed to achieve three primary goals: 1) Assist individuals in bolstering personal growth and development; 2) Aid organizations in enhancing the overall effectiveness and productivity of work teams – especially self-directed work teams; 3) Positively influence nations of the world that have, in recent years, given way to a troubling trend of moral back-peddling in relation to the value placed on human life and other issues impacting the growth, development, liberty, and freedom of individual human beings.
