What Guides Us 2016-12-26T02:11:58+00:00

At SMJ we strive to achieve a harmonious integration of work and spiritual consciousness…

Our spiritual intent is anchored in the belief that God created each of us for some divine purpose. We encourage our employees to seek an understanding of their own spiritual purpose and thereby contribute more meaningfully in achieving the company’s spiritual purpose.

Our philosophy of spirituality

Our philosophy of spirituality in the workplace allows our employees to perceive work as part of a spiritual journey and an opportunity to serve the wider society in ways that are mutually beneficial. We refer to it as the SMJ Way which is about contributing, caring, compassion and humility; demonstrating integrity and respect to fellow team members and customers alike..

3 PILLARS OF SPIRIT
CENTERED LEADERSHIP

These three pillars constitute a new tool kit for organisations of the future, functioning
along three unconventional and forward-thinking dimensions:

Moving Beyond Economies of Scope, Scale, & Speed To Economies of soul. A radical Departure from economies of scale, scope and speed towards economies of soul.

It asserts that the soul of the firms is nothing less than a colective soul of all the persons that comprise the organization. Economies of soul are therefore limitless in scope, scale and speed because the soul reinstates the integity of wholeness and completeness to the organization.

Moving Beyond Strategic Intent to Spiritual Intent.

A departure from strategic intent and its achievement towards spiritual intent. Those who are able to believe in the futures which they themselves intend to invent are the ones who will use their possible worlds. These are the owners of the future, the persons who act in spaces in parenthesis that await fulfilment.

Moving Beyond Human Capital to Spiritual Capital

A movement away from human capital as manpower, towards spiritual capital of the organization. The third pillar is a pitting of charachter against competence. The anticipation here is that organisations of the future will give priority to the value systems of their employees rather than competence outlined in their diplomas. Character will supersede competences.
