Read the Tom’s of Maine case (Canas and Sondak p. 213-220) and respond to the following questions:
To what extent is Tom Chappell’s spiritual perspective responsible for the company’s organizational culture and the company’s successes/failures?
What risks might an organizational encounter when encouraging the expression of spiritual values in the workplace? What are its advantages?
For this discussion, you must state your position and supporting rationale. You also must respond to the positions and rationales posted by the other students and to the questions/comments posted in response to your comments. You are expected to check the discussion and post substantive comments/questions at least two-three times per week (at appropriate intervals) to participate fully in this discussion. Remember, discussions are designed to be student-moderated — i.e., you are responsible for helping one another work through the discussion. I will be checking in frequently but I’m here primarily as a guide and will post comments only when necessary.
