Today’s fast-paced world, complex scenarios, competing desires have taken a toll on our mental peace. We frequent happy faces on Facebook and at the same time hear about increasing number of depression cases in the world. Blind imitation of Western values has taken away our own strengths. We admonished the West for having material prosperity, yet lacking in mental prosperity but today the same story has started plaguing our East too.

What is spirituality coaching?

“Spirituality coaching is about identifying habits which are inhibiting human potential. It is about creating a growth mindset where trainees are open to feedback, are more focused on mastery, learning from life & success of people and stretching beyond their comfort zone.”

The dictionary meaning of spirituality is the quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things. Sadguru beautifully explains that spirituality is about being comfortable with not knowing. It is about finding joy within oneself and working on things which are within our hands.

India is a land of saints who surpassed religion to reach millions of people. We need to go back to their first principles and invite spirituality in our lives. Spirituality is a beautiful experience. It is difficult to make anyone understand its power till one actually experiences it. 

How does spirituality coaching help the employees?

Coaching contributes to organizations to help employees realize their own potential. At a cursory level, coaching is all about facilitating the trainees to achieve their goals or resolve their dilemma. However, at a deeper level, it is about identifying habits which are inhibiting human potential. It is about creating a growth mindset where trainees are open to feedback, are more focused on mastery, learning from life & success of people and stretching beyond their comfort zone.

Spirituality Coaching in the Organizations

  • Helps to raise positivity in the workplace

  • Teaches to observe and respond to others with a calmness

  • Increases listening ability

  • Increases the capacity to work in groups and teams

  • Teaches to be optimistic about outcomes

Change in habit and mindset calls for a lot of positivity. This is why coaches worldwide have started talking about mindfulness – a state where we are observing human experience from a place of calm objectivity, anchored in the present moment. This again is not possible without discovering the joy within oneself. 

Essentially, spirituality coaching is all about finding the sacred space within ourselves, which gives us the power to change deep-rooted beliefs and habits and therefore, the ability to own a part of this universe which we could truly claim to be ours. 

In other words, spirituality coaching is nurtured by spirituality and one requires talent management practices such as coaching to lead people to spirituality and therefore mental prosperity.
