Building Your Business in the Spirit of Service
Lessons in Moral Leadership and Management from the Teachings of the Bahá’í Faith.
A well-known business consultant, coach, speaker and author, Lawrence Miller discloses the spiritual principles that have made his business such a success and which lie behind all successful modern organizations. In a bold step, he sets out his conviction that there is not necessarily any contradiction between pursuing material progress, whether in the form of a nation’s economy or personal wealth, and the teachings of religion. In fact, he states, it is the great challenge of one’s personal spiritual struggle to remain centered in spiritual reality while pursuing success in business.
He identifies and explores new principles of management for a new age:
- honesty and trustworthiness
- the spirit of service
- world citizenship
- universal education
But he goes far beyond this, showing how to put these principles to work in the real world of business, what he calls ‘practical spirituality’, looking at:
- capital and finance
- design of work
- structure and organization
- human resource development
- information systems
- reward and recognition
- customers, suppliers and community
A must-have book for anyone who wants to succeed in business in the 21st century.
