Abstract: Historically, managerial effectiveness is a vital construct, which has been acknowledged by management practitioners in corporate and by researchers in academia. Synchronically, workplace spirituality is another key issue that has been recognised as a valuable concept in the organisational and management context; however, the concept lies in its infancy and neophyte stage, and there is a dearth of empirical studies in this newly developing area. Keeping these views in mind, this study is an attempt to explore the relationship between workplace spirituality and managerial effectiveness among Indian managers. Data have been collected through the questionnaire-based surveys. On the basis of correlation and regression analysis, results indicate that workplace spirituality can be recognised as a key driver of managerial effectiveness. Further, findings may also be helpful to organisations in developing spirituality at workplace to enhance managerial effectiveness.

Keywords: workplace spirituality; managerial effectiveness; Indian management; India.
