For questions 6-10, read the passage and answer the
questions that follow:
At a time when impressive breakthroughs in
technology are providing new and better products and
services, when improved communications are
transforming thw world into a global village, and when
democracies are sprouting in former communist lands,
we are simultaneously witnessing events that makie us
questioin whether so much progress is indeed
For example, we see reports of widespread
bribery by Italina and Japanese government officials,
exorbitant salaries for executives in North America,
extensive environmental pollution in eastern Europe,
and other instances of immoral or morally questionable
conduct in our organizations. In many otherwise
prospeous and afluent cities, we see an increase in
the numbers of homeless people. Even those who are
fortunate enough to have a job find that work is not
only not an opportunity for growth, but a source of
anxiety and insecurity.
In the popular media as well as in academic
journals, we see great interest in the proposition
that business and other organizations leaders need to
become more responsible not just ot their stock
jolders but also to other stake holders- consumers,
employees, suppliers,government, and locla communites.
Put simply, the quality of life and perhaps the
survivial of society depend on the moral caliber of
its members. This moral caliber, however, is largely
determined by people in leadership positions. The way
leaders function in their positions of influence
directly contributes to strengthening pr weakening the
moral fiber or society. The lives of Buddha, Mohammed,
Lao-Tzu, Gandhi and Socrates attest to their salutary
influence in their own way as well as for all time.
A human being functions not just through the
physical body but also through the use of the
intellect and the will. The intellect penetrates those
deep levels of reality that are spiritual in nature
but that the physical senses and processes cannot
access. It does this through abstract concepts and
ideas that help to make sense of and give meaning to
the acts in the light of spiritual knowledge. It helps
us to make moral choices in living a spiritually
How do we describe the concept of spirituality
and its place in that domain? Spirituality is
difficult to define in a manner that is universally
acceptablke because religious beliefs and rites differ
widely age to age and from one society to another.
However, if we analyze the spiritual experience per se
and its behavioral manifestations among individuals of
different religious backgrounds, there is much accord
on the understanding and appreciation of the essence
of spirit at three levels: cognitive, affective, and
At a cognitive level,spiritual experience
represents a realization that,a t the core of human
existence, there is set of virtues and vices. Virtues
- prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance- are
good habits that enable us to stirve toward relizng
our full potential. Ideally, the goal of human life is
to live these values and overcome the vices.
At an affective or emotional level, the spiritual
experience represents a complete trust and dependence
on such virtues. In its most sublime, the spiritual
experience represents a complete identification with
these values,or with an individual embodying these
values, tha aim being to achieve some forme of
enduring blissful state of existence.
How is the spiritual experience expressed in
outward behavior? What are the sources of the norms
andd principles within the spiritual domain? Response
to such questions generally come from prescriptions of
moral observance of the laws. It is not a question of
an act being legal or illegal, but whether the act is
good or evil. A morally good act is necessarily an
expression of a spirtual act.
The ability to distinguish between morally good
and evil acts is critical to the formation of
character. Knowing ehtical principles alone is of
little value unless we make an effort to habitually
incorporate these principles in our behaviour.
In the final analysis, the reward of the
spiritual experience is that it enables each
individual to grow and fully realize the tremendous
potential unique to that person. If a good moral
character is of the essence of every human being,
thern with much greater reason does it become so of
leaders who, in the words of Stanford management
professor Harold Leavitt, by their "vision, values,
and determination, add soul to the organization".
