The complexity and challenges of contemporary life makes purpose, spirituality and faith more important for working people.
Given the amount of time we spend at work and the centrality of work’s role in creating meaning for our lives, integrating our foundational beliefs and inward experience into our work lives becomes essential.
The perspectives I share here address how purpose, spirituality, and faith can be more consciously integrated into work, organizations, and leadership.
Some articles are based on spiritual readings and are more reflective in nature. Others are informational and integrate findings from research. The rest discuss ways to address spiritual needs and meet the challenges of living through faith.
Whether you’re needing a new perspective, seeking inspiration, or just need a break, I hope you will visit often. I also hope you will share your questions, comments, and inspirations with me.
These articles draw upon spiritual readings, usually the bible, to draw out truths and encourage leaders. They serve to remind leaders to draw upon their faith. They also provide perspectives that help them rise above the details and make decisions that are in alignment with higher purposes and the greater good.
In the past twenty years, academic research has found evidence that integrating spirituality and faith into the workplace has positive benefits. These articles discuss the benefits of integrating spirituality and faith into organizations. They also describe how scientific evidence and spiritual wisdom can be integrated to improve the health and well-being of working people, leaders, and organizations.
These articles discuss the spiritual needs of working people. Unfortunately, they are not frequently discussed in either secular or religious settings. Some of the topics have come from conversations I’ve had with leaders. Others are based solely on my observations. My goal is to address topics that help people satisfy their spiritual needs at work and help them meet the challenges of living through faith.
