5 Ways to Integrate Spirituality Into The Workplace



spirituality in the workplace

Work is where people spend much of their time. Yet our spirituality can get shut down in the act of making a living but selling our soul. When it’s a job rather than a vocation, our personal impact declines. So how can you reverse this trend?

Here are 5 ways to invite spirituality back into your work life:

1. Start by connecting with your values

Many people search for a job that is high paying with great perks. Instead, find a place of employment focused on core values consistent with your own. Pay close attention to what companies stand for.

Take a look at websites and annual reports. Examine mission, vision and core values statements. Are the company’s actions in keeping with those statements? If you can, speak with others involved with the organization to get their feedback too.

If you’re an entrepreneur, you are in the unique position to set the tone for yourself. Make your own values an essential part of the package of products or services you deliver. Never sacrifice your own values in favor of money. That’s a huge risk to your business and an even greater one to yourself.


2. Be the example

The draining influences of workplace stress, conflict and overload seem to be everywhere nowadays. Unfortunately, that can spill over to your personal life as well. Illness, family issues, money problems or death can enter your life. Coping in the workplace then becomes more difficult. That’s true for everyone.

What can you do to ease the burden for others? Begin by choosing your words and making them count. That means your words reflect your actions. Admit when you are wrong. Celebrate the accomplishments of others. Stay away from water cooler gossip.

Tackle the sapping surroundings by raising the bar. Take the lead on encouraging cohesiveness. Propose more communications between ownership, management, staff and departments. Bring up the idea of a weekly update to keep everyone connected. Consider work from home arrangements. Or start a process improvement program to address problems and opportunities.

Watch for your cues. In a troubled workplace, you will have ample opportunity to stand out. Understand you are there for a reason and make it count. Your example can spread like wildfire and enliven the culture.

“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.  

3. Figure out what’s important to your coworkers

Take an active role by getting in tune with what’s important to those around you. That could involve a workplace issue or something happening in their personal life. Keep the inspiration of others fueled and they will often return the favor.

How can you help? Just listening is usually a good start. When you show you are a true listener, others will be more inclined to open up to you. Make time even when you don’t seem to have it. Don’t be judgemental. Be ready to share your own experiences too.  

Pick up an extra task when a coworker is off sick or out on vacation. Try to keep things light and share a laugh or two. If you see someone skipping a break, pick them up a snack. There will be days when you are dangling. That’s when workplace spirituality can kick in to help you too.


4. Take a gifts inventory and take action

Part of spirituality is recognizing the gifts and goodness each one of us possesses. Once you  have gone that extra mile don’t just discard the information. What have you learned? Write it down and put this knowledge to work.

Are you a manager or entrepreneur? Tapping the creative capacity of your employees should be an important goal. That’s a key reason workers feel appreciated. It’s also why businesses thrive. Don’t fail to realize this potential.

Permit low cost experiments. Make plenty of small risk, high reward investments. Spirituality calls for tapping hidden talents to bring out the best in people.

From CEO to secretary, make sure everyone understands the big picture. Engage them in the strategic planning process. Ask employees how their gifts could help achieve crystal clear outcomes. Then let the entrepreneurs do meaningful work. That’s called Success 101.

“There is no limit to the amount of good a person can do if they don’t care who gets the credit.” – Unknown

5. Create a work environment that fosters spirituality

There are two types of individuals. One divides people; the other bonds them. Aspire to be the latter. Shared purpose results in an enriched life experience.

Take the pulse of your organization using a work climate survey. This is a questionnaire that can help assess work life, what’s important to employees and working conditions. As an entrepreneur, ensure that your values are still relevant. As a manager, be certain your values are being embraced.

Spirituality can only manifest itself under the right conditions. Be the type of person who takes the responsibility to create an environment that fosters it.  

We are all called to do and be more. So forget about having to go undercover to discover. Invite spirituality into the workplace to cultivate purpose. Then enjoy the fruits of multiplying good!

How to Break the Cycles of Mediocrity and Manifest Your Greatness

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity



Image Credit: Midjourney

In just a few weeks, we will be wrapping up 2023. Can you believe it? This year has been absolutely incredible for me.

I have seen amazing doors opened, new relationships formed and I am seeing dreams realized in my life. While this seems like the hallmarks of a great year, this has also been the most challenging year of my life. With all of the change happening in my life, I have been forced out of my comfort zone and challenged to grow in every area of my life.

I can truly say that I have made the most of my moments this year and I have used everything as a catalyst for maximizing my greatest potential.

As a revolutionary leader, I have the pleasure of consulting and advising leaders around the world to fulfill purpose, realize their greatest potential and make an impact.

I want to share some insights with you that will help you to break cycles of mediocrity and manifest your greatness

Everything legal must come through the matrix

I am sure that some of you are wondering why I am using the term matrix. However, what you have to understand is that I am trying to make a highly complex spiritual principle practical to understand.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, every life has an origin and I believe that origin is divine and begins with eternity. You are birthed from eternity and into time to fulfill a unique purpose and assignment in your lifetime and generation.

The matrix is simply the portal or vehicle that brings something out of the invisible realm and into tangible form. The problem with much of the teaching today is that it excludes the matrix. We are told to believe that success is instantaneous and overnight.

Nobody talks about how a dream progresses through stages beginning with visualization and ultimately culminating in manifestation. Without a matrix or portal then everything that you attempt to birth and build will be illegal.

The matrix not only makes you legal but it gives you the authority and power to function as the greatest expression of who you were created to be. 

Every matrix has an incubation process

While many people admire and respect me today, I remember a time when nobody knew who I was or the significance of my message. How did I get to where I am today? I got here through an incubation process.

In other words, everything that has been destined for your life is incubating and awaiting a set time of manifestation. The problem is that most people live their entire lives idle and never initiate the incubation process.

What do I meany by that? Most people are living reckless and very few people are living intentionally. I am amazed at the number of people I have conversations with that have no vision, goals or strategies for their lives. They show great promise and they have undeniable potential.

However, without development they will die with their dreams still in them.

Everything that has been destined for your life must be incubated and converted to become realities born to time. 

“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin to build.” – Robert Collier

You must give expression to that which is not yet born to time

When you think about a matrix or a prophetic incubation process, you have to understand that potential is often unrealized and untapped. In other words, your potential is in raw form and your potential cannot serve you as long as it is untapped.

The thing that makes me valuable is that I have the ability to convert potential into power. I have done it in my own life and I have empowered leaders around the world to do the same. How do you convert potential into power?

First, it is important to note that you have to perceive potential. If you cannot perceive your potential then you can never cultivate your potential. In addition, you must take the time to cultivate your potential. We often get excited about our capabilities; however, we never expand our capacity in order to realize our greatest potential.

In other words, the strength of your potential is only discovered through your willingness to stretch. The more we are challenged the more we are empowered to expand our capacity for greatness. Most of all, you must begin to express your potential. The expression of potential is different for every person.

For example, the expression of my potential is best demonstrated through the thoughts, ideas, products, services, books, etc.

For another person the expression of potential may look like a screenplay, artwork, sports, scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, etc.

Regardless of the form of expression, I know that you will live empty and unfulfilled until you make the decision to express your potential. The expression of your potential gives voice to your dreams, life to your vision, significance to your moments and activates your true power.

You must manifest your greatness

As a revolutionary thinker and leader, my work has impacted people around the world. I am grateful that my life is a source of empowerment to so many people. However, before anyone could ever benefit from my life, I had to make a non-negotiable decision to become who I was born to be.

I wish I could tell you that this journey is easy and that you will get there overnight. However, in a world that celebrates us for doing we are often criticized for being. As a result, I wasted a lot of time trying to be who other people wanted me to be instead of being who I was born to be.

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity. It is through our bravery to be vulnerable that we ultimately manifest our greatness. We do not bless the world by being a duplicate. We bless the world when we honor our difference. When you honor your difference you honor your potential.

Ultimately, your difference is how you manifest your greatness.

When you present anything but your authentic self to the world, you are playing small and you are robbing the world of your significance. Manifesting your greatness requires you to master your gifts.
