Spiritually intelligent leadership 

Danah Zohar’s ‘Spiritually Intelligent Leadership’ in Leader to Leader (“hat tip” to Management and Leadership Articles) says what needs to be repeated more: that is not as important in business as and .
   It’s a vicious cycle out there. Because places an emphasis on the money aspect, those with a real , which takes into account and spirituality, are in short supply.
   I rather like Danah’s analogy of a wedding cake:

This obsession with material gain has led to short-term thinking and the narrow pursuit of self-interest. It is true that any kind of enterprise we want to engage in requires some kind of financial wealth if it is to in the short term. But for to inspire long-term, enterprises, it needs to pursue two other forms of capital as well: social and spiritual. These three types of capital resemble the layers in a wedding cake. Material capital is the top layer, social capital lies in the middle, and spiritual capital rests on the bottom, supporting all three.

   She goes on to reveal her 12 principles of spiritually intelligent leadership, and I realize these are ones that I have applied in 19 years of . It’s great to have them summed up, because we all have off days. When I’m down, I tend to forget one or two of these principles—so by seeing them broken down, I know what I can address that day.

Note

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
