Abstract

Workplace spirituality is an organizational culture construct defined as the intersection of calling, commitment, and connection. For many online educators the desire to teach stems from a personal calling, which is then projected forward in the hopes of inspiring others to find their own purpose, fostering positive feelings both individually and collectively. However, online educators may not inherently experience workplace spirituality due to their calling; they must cultivate both commitment and connection to fully benefit from the organizational culture construct.
