This paper aims a new trend in Leadership applicable to both public and private sector, and the relationship between organizational stress, types of intelligence and types of leaders. Based on the types of intelligence, the paper shows the types of leaders and their profile. Of the three known types of intelligence: logical – rational intelligence, emotional intelligence and spiritual or quantum intelligence, this work mainly aims to develop general skills specific to Spiritual intelligence, because itharmonizes and integrates the characteristics of the other two types of intelligence. It have been proposed to analyse the types of leaders and the related general competences according to the criterion of "intelligence". Therefore, the authoritarian leader's intelligence corresponds collocation - to do, for the intellectual leader it corresponds the intelligence of thinking, for the charismatic leader it corresponds the intelligence of feeling, while for the spiritual leader's intelligence the main characteristic is to give. Human resource in public administration as in private sector too, is facing more and more with organizational and occupational stress. Thus, new management is needed in order to apply the principles of the transdisciplinarity – which uses levels of reality, and the holistic education in order to prepare future quantum leaders. In addition to other types of leaders, a spiritual leader’s features includes new abilities: they know how to integrate the various aspects of the surrounding reality, to harmonize the extra-psychic with the intra-psychic plans and ensure self-coherence through a new way of thinking. By intelligence characteristics provided, the spiritual leader in public administration is the leader at the service of others, having a component of compassion.
