A weekend of reflection, time out to develop the business and work matters, made me think of ways in which we can establish a relaxed, valued yet inspired organisation to innovate.
In the UK, we are celebrating Adult Learning Week with lots of fantastic initiatives, wellbeing programmes, learning tasters, through key partners and collaborations. Inspired individuals take Union Learning Representation seriously and act as perfect champions and peer support for others; encouraging personal development and active participation, in learning and development.
The development, rise and popularity of social enterprises highlights the importance of valuing individuals, nurturing talent, empowerment and overall aim to ‘build sustainable environments’.
What got me thinking is the role of ‘spiritual intelligence‘ in western led businesses? Is it something we would consider in establishing and nurturing innovation and creativity? Is it something that we shy away from?
A company who has reaped significant dividends, engaging leading technical experts, developing world-class talent and cutting edge technological advancements, is Apple. We are all aware of this, but a moment of thought, for the context with which spiritual intelligence enables leadership skills, environments, and people.
What role does spiritual intelligence play in leadership traits and delivery?
What key spiritual intelligence attributes must leaders possess to enable innovation and creativity?
How does spiritual intelligence enable personal development, people management towards innovation?
Is this common practice (East or West) or something we need to consider when developing creativity in the workplace?

How do we nurture these skills to support leaders? What impact can spiritual intelligence have in your organisation?
