Published in Chapter:
Management Education for Developing Spiritual Integrity
Kathryn Pavlovich (University of Waikato Management School, New Zealand)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-61350-510-6.ch006
This chapter explores the interface between spirituality and integrity, and focuses particularly on educational processes that may facilitate this development. First, definitions and constructs of integrity are discussed as they relate to spirituality. The second section explores teaching pedagogies related to processes for developing one’s inner leadership. Such processes facilitate the dissolution of subject-object, and open the way for an awareness that goes beyond our ‘small selves’ for more ethical and sustainable futures to be imagined. The third part of this chapter explores outcomes for students with examples of teaching pedagogies presented regarding how students may connect with something far deeper than their ‘small selves’. Finally, the chapter concludes with a discussion on organisational and managerial implications of spiritual integrity, through both practical and theoretical insights. These include leadership as being ethical and authentic; a more meaningful sense of personal, organisational and societal purpose; and finally developing a deeper awareness of stewardship of the earth.
