Leaders are expected to behave ethically. Today there is a growing demand from the society and other stakeholders that leaders should come out of their narrow thinking processes and focus on integrated and inclusive decision making where the interest of multiple stakeholders including society and environment are also taken care of. With expanding boundaries of business and technology coupled with a more vibrant economic, political, and social structure of the world complexity in leadership and management practices has increased manifold often leading to unethical practices. It won’t be inappropriate to say that current leadership and management practices are aiming for doing larger things instead of better things. Probably this is the reason that today we have more experts and so is the case with world problems. Somehow, wisdom in leadership and management practices is lost in the narrow and divisive decision making It is strongly realized now by the world that for developing ethical leadership and management practices, a congruence of secular (material) and sacred (spiritual) dimensions is must for bringing change in the world based on connectedness, love, trust, and harmony so that peace and prosperity across the world can be achieved. The theme of the conference is that how could spirituality which is the foundation of universal love and source of our existence be a solution for ethical leadership and management practices.
