Excerpt From Episode
What a fascinating man and interview! Steve Sphar, former litigation lawyer turned business consultant chose to leave the argumentative, competitive win – lose career experience that gave rise to exhilaration and excitement in his 20’s in order to coach executives, through motivation, connection and vision to procure win – win business results. When I asked what motivated his choice to change his career he replied “As you learn more about yourself and calling you notice where you are not in alignment with your best self.” Win – win doesn’t necessarily mean that everything is rosy, there is much you bump up against in the process that will however encourage the right amount of collaboration possible. In 2013 Steve designed and executed a Spiritual Development at Work Survey that was self-selected and recorded…showing an 80% positive response to the question “was spiritual development important” and a 60% positive response to the question “do you use spiritual development at work.” The pivotal need was for a new and inclusive language inside the workplace walls in order to dissolve the concerns of offending others while supporting the ‘wholeness of an individual’ into conversation.
