Spiritual intelligence: Is it related to a leader's level of ethical development?

by Hildebrant, Linda S., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2011, 134 pages; 3443322


Within the organizational environment there is an increasing interest in spiritual leadership. A leader who can effectively build an organization that exhibits workplace spirituality brings benefit to the members of the organization and the stakeholders represented as their agent. Spiritual intelligence offers the potential of a compass through which a leader’s ethics and spiritual leadership ability can be assessed. Building on the model of spiritual intelligence created by King (2008), a sample group of managers of both genders, age 21+, all cultures, and all educational levels will be studied to investigate if spiritual intelligence can be related to moral development theories and spiritual leadership attributes. The results are meant to provide a deeper and broader understanding of the application of spiritual intelligence and its relationship to the changing leadership and organizational paradigms involving spirituality.
