Spirituality in the Workplace - emerging trends


Work is an important part of one’s life purpose, yet so many people are working in organizations where they don’t feel their efforts have any meaning. The many complex problems in our world today will require a greater level of consciousness on the part of businesses as well as individuals. For these reasons, it’s important to start to look at work and the workplace in a different way.

This lecture will discuss the following:

  1. Emerging trends in the area of brining spiritual values into our work environments, into the business arena and into the work that individuals do. We will discuss examples of organizations that have been at the forefront of this trend and why.
  2. Some of the issues employees and managers face when the workplace isn’t clearly aligned to a sense of positive purpose.
  3. The five key elements of bringing spirituality to work.
  4. Techniques and practical ways to incorporate spiritual well-being into work organizations and into the structure of modern work environments.
  5. The benefits of incorporating our spiritual selves into work lives and workplaces and the pitfalls when this is lacking.
