Rabbi_shais_taub_1Our third guest for the Spiritual Nature of Team Building TeleSeminar series is Rabbi Shais Taub.

Rabbi Shais Taub is a social observer, philosopher, Huffington Post blogger, and is the best selling author of God of Our Understanding.

In this call Rabbi Taub will not lobby for the acceptance of a dogmatic or religious definition of spirituality. Rather, he will speak of spirituality as a mental capacity to adopt a consistent, reality-based worldview that has specific properties universal to all people. This has little if anything to do with formal belief systems and has everything to do with a certain way of using the brain.

When one becomes "Spiritually Intelligent", how does this impact leadership style?  Can teams become "Spiritually Intelligent?

Do you have to be smart to be a skeptic?

Do you have to be dumb to believe?

Maybe you've heard of "multiple intelligences." It's the theory that there is more than one kind of being smart. For instance, logical intelligence is different than musical intelligence and spatial intelligence is different than linguistic intelligence. That's why there can be a poet who can't carry a tune and a research biologist who can't do her own taxes.

Spiritual Intelligence?

Thanks to the work of Daniel Goleman we all understand the importance of Emotional Intelligence when it comes to leadership development, but what about Spiritual Intelligence?

In our feel-good, sanitized, PC culture, the term "spirituality" has become a non-descriptive catch-all for any idea that makes me feel good. If that's the case, then it's no wonder there is no correlation between such beliefs and having a happy, productive life.

Our special guest Rabbi Shais Taub who will put forth that spirituality is a form of intelligence and can be described in demonstrable terms.

Spiritual Intelligence, Rabbi Taub says, is the ability to be discerning, and therefore, make decisions, that adhere to certain axioms or principles.
