Abstract

What form of management is suggested by the increased interest in organizational spirituality and what genre of manager does spiritual learning attempt to construct? This article explores the growth of interest in organizational spirituality and its implications for management learning and development.

Burgoyne's (2002) outline of the different styles of learning approaches and the types of 'Self' they seek to construct are discussed in an attempt to clarify how spiritual management learning approaches are understood with the aim of clarifying a new, spiritualized form (or genre) of managerial self, which the discourse of organizational spirituality appears to seek
