>Speaking of "distinctions", I would be especially interested in how
people integrate "soul" or "spirit" into their communication(s) within
different organizational environments, i.e., business, government,
nonprofit entities. What kind of distinctions need to be made in order to
put the "S" word back into business, for example?

>I am the new president of an international nonprofit association,
Renaissance Business Associates (RBA), which was founded in 1983 and is
currently represented in Australia, Canada, Europe, New Zealand, Nigeria,
South Africa, and the United States. Basically, RBA is a network of
people committed to demonstrating the power and effectiveness of integrity
their lives through elevating the human spirit at work. Sounds easy

(Soul Or Spirit) to this esteemed group of kindred spirits. How do YOU
practice "soul" in your working lives? What have you observed others
doing? How do you (do you?) use the "S" word openly? As a friend and
colleague of mine, John Renesch, recently said, "if we truly believe that
soul and spirit are so important, why are we all whispering?" Any
