Becoming a Spiritually Intentional Leader

By Shrinkingthecamel

Becoming a Spiritually Intentional LeaderAs spiritual beings, we are each on a quest to find a greater purpose and meaning in our lives.

The journey is never-ending. It’s not like you wake up one day consummate with an epiphany, or a bolt of lightning, or a ray of sunshine that reveals all the ultimate truths of the universe. We are discovering things a little bit at a time as we face a new set of challenges, relationships, and opportunities with each new day.

This is just how God works.

Believe it or not, this journey includes your work. Especially your work. Our spiritual growth is an ongoing process of awareness, of seeing and sensing, of learning about who we are in relation to a loving God, and the impact and influence we can have in the world we operate in. But, as we all know, there are challenges to maintaining this state of being in a stress-filled work environment, or even believing this could be true.

For me, the spiritual journey is more cyclical in nature, turning and spinning like the orbit of the earth, with endless, repeated rounds of distance and returns. The cycle goes something like this:

Awareness > Insight > Challenge > Setback > Failure > Surrender > Awareness…and back around the clock all over again.

And again.

And again.

On May 15-16, A New Equilibrium  (an organization that I am deeply involved with) will sponsor a Leadership and Spirituality Summit at Princeton Theological Seminary’s School of Christian Vocation and Mission. Here we  will discuss the important question of what it means to become a spiritually intentional leader in the workplace, and how to keep it going strong. This summit is an opportunity to join like-minded business executives, entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders in the marketplace as they share with and learn from each other on the journey. I’ll be there, and I hope I can meet you there too.
