Overview

Those who are led by the Spirit of Agape, who manifest the universal, spiritual and moral virtues of Love and Goodness that accompany personal transformation, can, in the workplace (with enough courage, forbearance and compassion), transform a vicious corporate ethos into a virtuous one, the primary benefits to the organization being: increased worker morale, loyalty, motivation, effectiveness and productivity; the restoration of organizational heart, soul and creativity and spirit; and eradication of evil that famous psychotherapist and author of the 1983 book, People of the Lie, M. Scott Peck, says plagues the current corporate ethos.

"It defends a claim that Agape and business success are compatible, indeed that current economic woes are most effectively addressed by virtues Agape fosters."
