Description

Spirituality pervades every sphere, be it business, management, governance, health care, or any other secular engagements. This book explores and analyses how spirituality can stall degenerative trends in these areas.

After pioneering the indigenization of the ‘soft’ aspect of management in India and four-and-a-half decades of teaching, S.K. Chakraborty, along with his co-author Debangshu offer glimpses of the deep-structure relationship between ethically healthy performance and spirituality. The volume is enriched with illustrations from the long history of spiritually inspired leadership practices that provide positive inspiration to Indian businesses and everyday life.

The study cautions against a casual or glib approach to spirituality that can never be another instrument or programme for the single-minded pursuit of unquestioned business goals. It should also not be treated as just another new pasture for so-called research. It is essentially not an intellectual landscape. It is, first and foremost, an experimental-realization journey for the sacred.
READERSHIP
