Although it has been suggested that U.S. investors often check corporate values and ethics, it would seem that the principal criteria is usually only whether the executive team is perceived as having the necessary management skills to carry the company. Most organizations, unfortunately, are wholly over-managed and under-led with bureaucratic, arrogant, and uncreative cultures. MBA schools that turn out managers and not leaders may partly lie at the root of this situation. The result is poorly implemented strategies, acquisitions without the needed synergy, costly re-engineering, and downsizing and quality programs that fail to deliver. Other spiritual theorists and this study substantiate that worker performance and corporate profits, however, can be increased by efforts specifically aimed at boosting personal and workplace spirituality. In a completed pilot study, strong correlations were found between the standard Ellison Spiritual Well-Being Scale and a developed Spiritual Development Scale. In addition, strong correlations were found between a Workplace Spirituality Well-Being Scale (based on the Open Organizational Profile survey and assessments guidelines from Kotter and Mitroff) individually with a developed Workplace Commitment, Satisfaction, Attachment, and Values Scale as well as with a Profit Scale.
