Workplace spirituality

  1. 1. Shhankar Ganesh-Life Coaching
  2. 2. Definition of Spirituality at workplace• There is a supernatural power with which you derive intuition.• Work has a purpose greater than yourself.• You can access intellectual capabilities that exceed Newtonian reality and reasoning.• Your ego is not the only ego in the universe• Spirituality is nothing but ethical governance•• Reaching a transcendent state is the point in life where one believes in divine intervention and inspiration that exceed the limits of human wisdom and power Shhankar Ganesh-Life Coaching
  3. 3. Person who works out of compulsion / only for money  What can such a person offer an organization? When ones work is not what one has been sent on this earth for, in harmony with Natures plans, both individuals and organizations have to pay the price. De-motivated individuals may forfeit peace, harmony, growth and health, while employers may fail to justify their very presence in the organization. Every organization should realize that intent and natural talent are assets more important than specialization or technical qualification on its own. Shhankar Ganesh-Life Coaching
  4. 4. Person who has passion for his job A person with a burning desire to learn more about a subject or to give his best can do wonders irrespective of his background. Give people the work they are meant for and see how their motivation level goes up and the medical expenses and man hours lost due to illnesses come down. Barbara Brennan mentions in her seminal book Hands of Light that the health of the back of the throat is directly related to the level of satisfaction the person derives from his job. No wonder throat and throat chakra related diseases are so common among executives today Shhankar Ganesh-Life Coaching
  5. 5. IMPORTANCE OF POSITIVE ATTITUDE People and organizations think and feel low not because of the dismal circumstances they are in; they are in dismal circumstances because they think and feel low. The most powerful but least understood tool we possess is positive thinking The attitude of the people in an organization decides the speed, quality and direction they give to the company. Everyone encounters negative responses at work and feels bad about them. Remember that whatever you resist or try to control with negative responses gets stronger Shhankar Ganesh-Life Coaching
  6. 6. NEED TO BE IN SILENCE &CONNECT TO HIGHER SELF  All positive decisions and actions stem from inner silence. Correct actions follow when we pause and seek the guidance of an inner vision.  Recognizing and appreciating what others have done for us and feeling gratitude for all the comforts and good things the universe has blessed us with. Shhankar Ganesh-Life Coaching
  7. 7. NEED TO OPERATE FROM STATE OF ABUNDANCE ANDNOT FROM SCARCITY CONSCIOUSNESS Many problems crop up in an organization because people operate from a scarcity consciousness. They feel that there is too little of everything: opportunities, promotions, resources, time and money. As everyone tends to hoard things, the system becomes far from perfect and abundant, and actually results in a scarcity of things. Organizations, having a culture where people circulate rather than keep things they do not need, provide an environment of abundance; people always have what they need at the right time and place Shhankar Ganesh-Life Coaching

  12. 12. REQUIRMENTS FOR EFFECTIVE COACHING Learning happens best in the child state: In adult mode, one has most of the answers, but very few questions. o No one can train another: Unless the learner chooses to learn, learning does not take place. o One persons knowledge need not be relevant to another: Learning happens best when one gets in touch with ones own inherent wisdom. Transformation is the most immediate and direct end result of learning: If there is no transformation, there has been no learning. "In the child state, there is no self-consciousness, ego, fear of social ridicule or any of the other inhibitory walls that we build around ourselves as we grow up and grow older. This kind of freedom from self-consciousness is essential for the learning process," Shhankar Ganesh-Life Coaching
  13. 13. TAKEAWAYS A spiritually underdeveloped employee is very costly to the organization. This is why people who build successful, organizations pay great attention to their employees developmental needs through Spiritual training. Employees should develop listening skills, understand the basics of body language, and learn memory enhancing techniques. For the organization to be able to function as one whole, it is essential that communication flows not only from top to bottom but also from bottom to top. For this to happen, it is necessary to create an environment without psychological barriers with emphasis on sharing information. Shhankar Ganesh-Life Coaching
  14. 14. TAKEAWAYS Knowledge is not power unless it is applied consistently and strategically. Success does not depend on how much one knows; it depends on how much of it one puts to use. Training programs are a sheer waste of money and time, if initiative or opportunity to apply what is learnt to ones works is lacking Shhankar Ganesh-Life Coaching
