Here's more: Leonard Berry, in his new book, Discovering Soul of Service, (1999, The Free Press), writes that core of every successful organization is "a soul, a value system..."
Barbara wrote, "I could almost feel soul Berry describes in way Southwest handled my flight."
John B. Izzo, PhD, in his Awakening Corporate Soul, (ISBN 0-9682149-01-6) writes of "the 4 paths to unleash power of people at work." He says "The soul wants to make a difference." I was at his program at Canadian Association of Professional Speakers (CAPS) 1998 Convention. He said we who speak are to share our unique essence (our soul and it's values,) with our audiences.
And longtime speaker, Kathleen Hawkins, in her SPIRIT Incorporated, (ISBN 0-87516-717-9,) writes of "spiritual laws operating in workplace."
There's no denying this rising tide of corporate receptivity to our authentically sharing who and what we are at essence level as part of our message.
A growing sense of self is pervading people at every level of corporate world. A personal dignity, an enhanced awakening to rightness of personal autonomy is sweeping through world of work. There's a heightened concern for self, for personal growth as a human right and as a direct result of work we do. People long to actualize their true potential. And they want this to be one of outcomes of work they do.
It's now appropriate for us, as experts who speak, to recognize and salute rightful place of human spirit in workplace. At every level of workplace. From mail room to boardroom. And every level in-between.
