In a culturally diverse country like the United States, healthcare professionals such as nurses will work with people of different cultural backgrounds who have different view of health and illness. Mcgoldrick, Giordano & Preto (2006) concluded that a sense of well-being in terms of physical and mental health within a societal context is strongly affected by cultural identity.

Marissa Mayer is the CEO of Yahoo Incorporated, the juggernaut technology company. Mayer receives both praise and ridicule not only for becoming the first female CEO of the said company, but for the groundbreaking decisions made since appointed to that position. Mayer made headline news in February of 2013, mere months after being appointed to head of the multinational corporation; she discontinued employees’ freedom to work from their own homes. The main reason for the change was her desire for all employees to work in close proximity to one another. “Mayer has said she wants Yahoo to move more quickly, with teams focusing on collaboration and communication. Clearly, Mayer thinks it’s hard to make those connections when working remotely” (Pepitone, 2013). It seems as if Mayer took a page right from Kerry Patterson’s book Influencer: The New Science of Leading Change.

Team leadership encompasses many things.

However, the value of teamwork should not be overemphasized considering that all organizations need individuals and personnel who are willing to share ideas, listen to others and contribute to the problem solving of any given group or a company.

As told by Patrick Lencioni, author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, “In the course of my experience working with CEOs and their teams, two critical truths have become clear to me. First, genuine teamwork in most organizations remains as elusive as it has ever been. Second, organizations fail to achieve teamwork because hey unknowingly fall prey to five natural but dangerous pitfalls, which I call the five dysfunctions of a team” (Lencioni, 187).

The following essay will approach the workplace philosophies of Howard Gardner and Mike Rose and attempt to apply them to real-world work-related problems and situations.

For the creating mind, as Mike Rose redefines the intelligence in his book The Mind at Work, he believes the blue-collar workers are as creative as other white-collars. Besides the creative mind related to the physical workers, Mike
“Every skill and every inquiry, and similarly every action and rational choice, is thought to aim at some good; and so the good has been aptly described as that which everything aims. But it is clear that there is some difference between ends: some ends are activities, while others are products which are additional to the activities. In cases where there are ends additional to the actions, the products are by their nature better than activities.” (Aristotle’s Nichomachean Ethics, as translated by Crisp, 2000, p. #3)

Fortune magazine in its analysis of ‘Best Places to Work’ in the US, though it does not use the word spirituality, writes that these are places where people find a purpose to work other than their pay cheques (Colving 2006). Nur (2003) found in his study that organizations managed by spiritual values (MBV’s) earned better returns within a period of five years. Meta-analysis by Dent et al. (2005) showed the positive association of spirituality with productivity. The effect of spirituality at the workplace can spill over into employees’ home life, marriage, social interaction, and so on, which in turn, positively affects their work performance (Bromet et al. 1990; Jurkiewicz and Giacalone 2004). Marques (2005) suggest that spirituality results in a unified pleasant performance and quality orientation of the workforce which in turn results in excellent output and community orientation. The literature correlating workplace spirituality related factors with performance can be shown to converge into three areas; motivation, commitment and adaptability (Jurkiewicz and Giacalone
