Abstract

In October 2000, the RMRS Leadership Team attended a one-day seminar on leadership presented by Stephen Covey (1990). Covey talked about the role of a leader being respecting, integrating and developing body, heart, mind, and spirit. Integrating our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual selves is a popular theme (e.g. Leonard and Murphy 1995, Levey and Levey 1998, Murphy 1992, Wilber 2000). An example is Segal and Horne's (1997) "Human Dynamics," a personality assessment system similar to Myers-Briggs, but based on physical, emotional, and mental attributes. Covey also talked about intelligence being associated with body, heart, mind, and spirit. We typically associate intelligence with the mind, our cognitive intelligence. Gardner (1993) postulates there are at least seven kinds of intelligence. In addition to our individual intelligence, Isaacs (1999) discusses access to group intelligence through dialogue. Zohar and Marshall (2001) have recently written about "spiritual intelligence."
