Spirituality in the workplace

Last November, more than four hundred business people from twenty-two countries met in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for the 1998 "International Conference on Business and Consciousness." The purpose of these gatherings is "to help people and organizations incorporate values that will enable them to feel enthusiastic about what they're doing, how they're doing it, and how it is affecting the rest of the world."

Martin Rutte (pronounced "root"), president of Livelihood, a management consulting firm in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and one of the coauthors of the book Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work (Health Communications, Inc., Florida), was one of the speakers. He felt that this year's gathering "marked the end of the beginning," because most of the groundwork being done in this field is "now structured and in place." Recently he talked with us about his approach to spirituality in business.
