Bring Your Spiritual Values to Your Business: The 7 Ways to Incorporate Spiritual Leadership to Grow Your Business

Tuesday, November 15 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm • Organized By Voyage Consulting Group
1520 Clay St, North Kansas City, MO 64116


As life moves on in this post-pandemic world, people are becoming more spiritual. In a January 2022 report, 75% of Americans described themselves as spiritual, with 28% of Americans declaring a deepening of their faith caused by the pandemic. People are spiritual, but are usually discouraged from bringing that part of themselves to work. You can build a rare culture — one that encourages people to bring their whole selves to work.

Incorporate spiritual leadership to lead in alignment with your own core values and help others do the same. You will feel more honest and less pressured than when forced by society to be incongruent while working and with your family. Your people will, too. The honesty will enable more genuine bonds and trust, which are the foundation for deeper relationships. Genuine relationships based on trust will empower you and your people to speed communication and innovation and to better serve your customers. Growing your company is an obvious outcome. The upside is endless!

In this session, you will:

◼ Identify how to deepen the connection you and your people have with your most important spiritual values.
◼ Learn the 7 ways to incorporate spiritual leadership to grow your business — plus 3 bonus ways.
◼ Identify practical ways to live and lead in alignment with the truth of who you are and who you want to be as a real leader.

Emerge from this fast-paced program with clarity and momentum needed to bring your spiritual values to life in the company you are building.
