Conference on ‘Spirituality and Management 2020’

The aim was to emphasize the importance of practicing mindfulness to relieve stress. A two day conference on ‘Spirituality and Management 2020: From Model to Application’ was held on March 6 and March 7 at the sprawling campus of OP Jindal Global University.

Professor (Dr.) Sanjeev P. Sahni, Principal Director, Jindal Institute of Behavioural Sciences emphasized on need to dissociate spirituality with mere religiousness and related activities. He Said “We have mistaken spirituality with religious practices, rituals, sermons, commemoration or veneration of deities, doing yoga, and meditation when in reality it is more than that. Bringing core spiritual values such as integrity and honesty to our homes and workplaces can add a lot to our lives and keep our ego in check”.

During the introductory remarks, Dr. Pankaj Gupta, President IIHMR University, emphasized on need to live a balanced life and channelizing the restless mind on the right track through spiritual means. He said “Most of the time we are driven by ‘I’ factor but we need to work on a collective level and that can be achieved by looking at spiritual connotations of our lives.”

All in all 18 scholars presented their work that focused on themes like Spirituality in business organizations, Spirituality Models of Management and Leadership, Impact of workplace spirituality upon employee performance, Sacred/Secular landscape and environmental management and Incorporating spirituality at the Level of Family, Society, Corporate and Nation etc.
