There is growing evidence of the fact that humankind is very close to the edge of the deep abyss. Lack of wisdom among corporate and state leadership is probably one of the most important reason why we are in such a threatened situation. In this paper, wisdom as a critical leadership trait and wisdom development according to a 4-dimensional model is presented and discussed together with mindfulness as a contemplative way to postconventional and even trans-conventional level of human development. Wise leadership based on Western scientific tradition and Eastern philosophical tradition is proposed as a new leadership model that is needed if we want to successfully respond to our current global crises.
