|Abstract:||Research was conducted to empirically demonstrate the relationships between personal meaning, calling and organizational commitment in the context of spiritual leadership. Wong's Personal Meaning Profile was used to establish the various sources of personal meaning and identify those that predict calling. The results showed significant positive correlations between self-transcendent personal meaning and calling. Further, calling was also positively correlated with organizational commitment and contrasted with work-as-job as a predictor of commitment. The study suggests that not all sources of personal meaning are predictive of calling, and that calling mediates the relationship between self-transcendent personal meaning and organizational commitment. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.|
