It can be increasingly hard in the face of unrelentingly dark world headlines about the economy, the state of the planet, or geopolitical unrest to maintain a sense of purpose. What is the point of what you do every day, if the whole world is going to hell in a handbasket? A sense of spirituality, something Judi Neal calls ‘Spiritual Intelligence’ is a wonderful source of resilience for any of us – at work and at home. If you’d like a sense of how well connected you are to your sense of self, of others and indeed of spirituality, have a go at the Spiritual intelligence Self-Assessment available on the International Center for Spirit at Work website. Judi Neal is co-author of The Spirit of Project Management.
