Dr. Rosie Kuhn's "The ABC's of Spirituality in Business" Has Nothing To Do With "Getting Religion"
September 07, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsOrcas Island, WA., September 7, 2012 — Spirituality in the workplace is not about religion. In fact, the new meaning of spirituality in today's culture is in sharp contrast to what we've known it to be in the past which has always been "an aspect of religious life."
Now, explains Dr. Rosie Kuhn, Ph.D., preeminent speaker, author, coach and thought leader in the field of Spiritual Intelligence, "spirituality is not about the practice of an institutional religion. Not that individuals don't practice spirituality within their chosen religion, they can and do. But spirituality today means more a state or experience that can provide individuals with direction or meaning, or provide feelings of understanding, support, inner wholeness or connectedness."
And, according to Dr. Kuhn, when utilized and integrated into the workplace studies conducted over the past ten years show that spirituality boosts the bottom line. Which is why both small businesses as well as corporations are starting to implement spirituality into their daily operations, management, and leadership practices.
The "ABC's of Spirituality in Business," Dr. Kuhn's newest book is what reviewers are calling the "spirituality in business" primer that every workplace, employee, manager and executive needs.
Available at www.amazon.com, the "ABC's of Spirituality in Business" tells us in a clear and easy-to-understand format how you make decisions and conduct yourself in a way that cares for people, the world we live in, and, even yourself. While at the same time your employer can learn how to focus on matching you up with projects and tasks that give your working life, and ultimately your soul — purpose.
Based on the premise of "how-to" introduce spirituality into business, Dr. Kuhn takes an elementary approach and starts with the ABC's of this principle. The little carry-with-you-everywhere book provides a powerful basis which teaches that within a business anyone can build a strong spiritual presence and practice. By utilizing wisdom, kindness and compassion, the book explores twenty-six core ideas related to spirituality. No dogma or religious rhetoric, just basic how-to's easily understood by anyone participating in the workplace.
Corporations such as Southwest Airlines, Apple, and Medtronic all practice business spirituality, as does the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce who hosts a monthly brown bag lunch in the heart of the city's financial district where employees can dialogue about their experiences and participation in spirituality of in the workplace.
Dr. Kuhn, also active in the field of transformational coaching, coach training and leadership development, learned about business spirituality through her experience of coaching and training professionals in banking, sales, recruiting, HR, health, education, and non-profit organizations, for clients such as Gap Inc., SanDisk, Flextronics, Sun Microsystems and Nike Israel.
"We all know how quickly a business or workplace can shut-down and become unproductive, meaning profit-less, when the workplace environment is about in-fighting, lack of trust, anger, lack of purpose, subordination and disrespect," says Dr. Kuhn.
"Spirituality in business addresses those obstacles and issues and creates a workplace that is based on wisdom, kindness, purpose and compassion, which ultimately creates positive production and allows all members of the workplace to begin to meet their personal potential."
