The authors found that Indonesian Ramayana contains nine leadership elements, encompassing: competency, ethical, charismatic, integrative, collaborative, knowledgeable, transformative, pluralistic and philanthropic. Those elements are divisible into four dimensions: self-dimension includes competency, ethical and charismatic; social dimension includes integrative and collaborative; transformational dimension includes knowledgeable and transformative, and altruistic dimension includes pluralistic and philanthropic. Those dimensions show that altruistic leader is consist of hierarchical and interrelated leadership elements.
