Where to fit Spirituality into a hardscrabble business environment?

To a question, “How would you answer the question of where to fit spirituality into a hardscrabble business environment? Ken Melrose, former CEO -Toro’s Company and author of “Making the Grass Greener on your side“, answers this very lucidly.

He says:

A person’s spirituality contributes to his or her wholeness, and I believe the whole of the person must, at some level, come into the work environment. This does not mean going to work as an evangelist. But it does mean being able to exercise one’s own ethics, integrity, character, humility, caring, and valuing of others. These should mesh into our activities and behaviors toward accomplishing the business goals and our performance expectations. If they’re at odds, the lack of alignment will eventually result in a separation from the company.
