Modern organizations are in a constant state of flux. Nothing ever remains unchanged whether it is a bureaucratic, matrix or boundary less organization (Roe, 2014). Organizations are becoming boundary less and transparent with a diverse cross cultural talent landscape and the leaders are encountering fierce battlefield kind of environment on a daily basis. In these turbulent times of leadership crisis, identity crisis and subsequent organizational crisis where individuals and organizations are in a constant state of uncertainty, no individual or organization will be able to stand the test of time if they do not do a little bit of soul searching. (Beaudan, 2002) Bhagavad-Gita is an excellent treatise on spiritual leadership competencies and, relating these principles to contemporary settings help in connecting the souls of crisis-ridden people to achieve exemplary work culture through spiritual quotient. The rationale is to realize the role of spirituality in creating happy and happening organizations where the staff derive meaning and purpose in workplace and celebrate their full potential and think beyond profit margins. The research helps business leaders to find new ways to develop their own leadership style which is less ego-centric and more self-transcendence where the employees find a more actualized and altruistic relationship to self, others, and the planet. The research helps organizations to review their Mission, Vision, Core Values, Quality Initiatives, Business Models, Business Practices, and Leadership Strategies and re alignment of competencies.
