Workplace spirituality is not a new phenomenon. Businesses in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries were established and run on loving and Spiritual principles. But, somehow, somewhere along the twentieth century, business and spirituality got separated. And that was because business then was more dominated by men, and as we all know, men are more into left-brain thinking.
As a result, corporate houses were increasingly concerned with left-brain viewpoints such as strategic planning, performance management, reasoning, analytical thinking, and profits. Today things are changing, and there is an influx of women in the corporate world, and with them, they bring in their Compassion, Spirituality, love, empathy, and all the aspects of the right – brain perspectives which are correlated with women. Thus, it can be said that with the rise of the modern women-dominated corporate world has contributed to a more stabilized and spiritual workplace.
