Introduction

WithJoan Marques

This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book explains that workplace spirituality should not be limited to buy-in from top management. It can be applied by any person in a work environment. The book immerses into the role of self-knowledge in life and leadership. Self-knowledge is the hallmark of all authentic leaders, since it helps those in leadership positions to lead from their true self. The book invites us to take an honest look at what is happening within ourselves when aiming to manage spirituality from a personal perspective. It describes spirituality as a universal human experience, referring to the way we seek and express meaning and purpose and the way we experience the connectedness to self, others, nature, and to the significant or sacred.
