Integrating Spirituality Into Work
Wax, Seth
School Administrator, v65 n5 p26-27 May 2008
School leaders do work that is both demanding and draining. Amid the day-to-day pressures of managing their school districts, many are seeking inspiration and deeper meaning. As a result, some are increasingly looking to integrate their spirituality and their work. In this article, the author describes three individuals interviewed as part of the GoodWork Project who have successfully integrated their spirituality into their work. While their specific beliefs and religious affiliations differ, each has demonstrated distinct strategies for incorporating their spiritual beliefs and practices into their work. Steve, the director of an after-school program, was motivated by a spiritual goal; Louise, a public school teacher, has a strong sense of divine calling; and Peter, a counselor for patients with chronic illnesses, has brought his meditation practice into his work.
