Spirituality is a controversial subject by nature in any context, and is even more so in the secular business world in South Africa. For me, ‘spirituality’ is concerned with the human qualities of a sense of responsibility and accountability to oneself and others (see Dalai Lama, 1999). According to Zinnbauer et al. (1997), spiritual people are more likely to feel connected with others (group cohesion) and exhibit self-sacrificing behaviour (altruism).
