this age of knowledge-based organizations, now more than ever, human
energy capital needs to be recharged, refocused and utilized to power a
revitalization of business."

the full power of
human talent and spirit
– for business success,
and the common good.
A big advance in the thinking about human
capital came in the 1990’s, introduced in an article in Fortune by
David Stewart, and later explained further in his book titled
"Intellectual Capital: The new wealth of organization". Now we take for granted that Human
Capital involves the fruits of the Mind.
But equally important in human capital are
the fruits of the Heart. Which is why Darwin Gillett developed the
concept of Spiritual Capital. In fact, he was already exploring the
spiritual side of business in the late 1980's and early 1990's. But it
wasn't until he saw Stewart's "Intellectual Capital" article that he
realized that what he was exploring (and developing) could accurately
be called "Spiritual Capital."
Here are some publications by Gillett that
explain spiritual capital: what it is, how it works, and how it
differs, yet complements intellectual capital.
