One of the last things you're likely to hear in a business meeting is people talking about the spiritual nature of a corporation and how it impacts their bottom line. In my previous reflections from the Association for Talent Development 2015 Conference, I talked about being explicit, measuring ROI beyond money, knowing the case for the status quo, and using your imagination to help make a business case for learning. My final reflection is on asking a business spiritual questions.

I had bigger questions I wanted to answer about making a business case for learning, and I needed a dream team of 13 thought leaders to help me tease out my top 5 ah-hah moments.
