The Institute for Human Capitalism




"In 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 Institute for Human Capitalism

Engaging the full power of
human talent and spirit
– for business success,
individual development,
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.
