Abstract

In today’s business context, working spirituality has become most remarkable aspects of the organizational culture. The frequent conversation about spirituality at the workplace has uplifted the consciousness of the ethical responsibility among the corporate citizens. The sense of responsibility within the employees has been widely upgraded by the spiritual values, which directly made an impact on the overall development of the productivity as well as the organizational growth. However, the advancement of spirituality at workplace is extensively based on an individual responsibility towards the framework of a monastic work environment to enhance the spiritual consciousness and intellectual growth. In addition, to develop the ethical leaders in the workplace, the practice of spirituality is essential in daily organizational routine. According to ‘Walter Earl Fluker’ in his expert theory stated that spirituality demands that leaders should propagate and nurture the sense of self that perceive the interrelatedness of self, life or the sense of commonality.
