There is a growing movement to incorporate faith and spirituality in the workplace, to do things better, to utilize all the human capabilities of employees, and to truly revolutionize the role of business in the world. Creating Enlightened Organizations is the first book to provide a truly comprehensive approach to creating an organization designed to unleash full human potential in the workplace. Businesses have learned how to involve employees in problem solving, improve the emotional intelligence of their leaders, reengineer the business processes and create customer delight, but they have left out one essential ingredient that makes all the difference – the human spirit.
There is a hunger for meaning and purpose in our workplaces and in our institutions. This book simplifies and organizes the best of what is going on in organizations at the individual, team and systems levels and provides guidance for putting it to practical use. It also offers a radically new view of the purpose of business in society and provides examples of leading edge organizations that make a positive difference in the world. Spirituality is the new competitive edge, and enlightened organizations know how to integrate the human spirit and spiritual values into their business practices.
