Summary

Coversations about Calling explores management perspectives on the calling construct. Using Max Weber's seminal work, Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, as a starting point, Myers seeks to enrich management perspectives on calling by integrating the contributions of other disciplines to the literature on calling. While the word 'calling' is casually used as shorthand for 'my ideal job', the calling concept has provoked deeper and varied interest among the secular and spiritual circles of both scholars and practitioners. Structured around the ideas of these four conversations, the book aims to promote a holistic examination of calling. Each conversation has a different focus, elucidating important dimensions of calling, and together they provide a truly comprehensive view. Part one of the book examines the existing conversations, while part two unifies them into a comprehensive theory. Finally, in part three, the book deals with the application of calling theory and implications for practitioners and organizations. With a strong theoretical grounding, the book also incorporates practical applications supported by case studies. Anyone interested in ethics or management and spirituality will benefit from reading this book.
