knowledge.insead.edu- can you bring your spirituality to work?

A key ingredient of leadership is the ability to build trust. But according to DDI, a global HR consulting firm, only 46 percent of employees trust their direct manager to do what’s right. Even worse, only 32 percent say they trust their organisation’s senior leaders.

Building trust and doing what’s right is linked to questions of morals and ethics, and whether leaders have a moral compass guiding their decisions and actions. Until recently, the business world has discouraged individuals from showcasing their personal values in general, and their religious beliefs in particular.

bps.org.uk - finding spirituality in science benefits wellbeing and learning

Science involves the systematic search for knowledge. But as the authors of a new paper note, it’s a lot more than simply an exercise in cold calculation. “It can yield awe-inspiring discoveries and theories that create meanings, feelings of connection, and wonder,” write Jesse  Preston at the University of Warwick and colleagues in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.

ted talk – one earth, many religions

Zaki Cooper is active in inter-faith relations, and is a communications professional. Zaki Cooper started travelling on the London Underground every day at the age of 11, and was struck by the diversity of the people on the tube. Years later, following the horrific attacks on 7/7 perpetrated by religious extremists, he resolved to get more involved in inter-faith work. Since that time, this has been a big part of his work and life, regularly talking to school and community groups about the importance of building bridges across the faiths. In this talk, Zaki explains the five reasons for inter-faith activity, and calls on everyone to get involved in inter-faith, not just “Priests, Vicars, Imams, Rabbis and other religious clerics.” He explains how this will build a unity which recognises difference rather than ignoring it.

Whether in Parliament, the Crown or the City, much of British ceremonial life has a religious underpinning. Why do these traditions persist, and how are they evidenced in public religion? How do individuals square their own religious beliefs with the demands of a secular workplace?
