This blog has been designed most for the benefits of my students. I am interested in spiritual intelligence because I believe it leads to happiness and resilience. If you want copies of my published research (conference papers or articles in journals), feel free to contact me.
Over the next few weeks, I will do very few postings as my students are 'on holiday'. Nonetheless, my work is on-going. I am more and more interested in how certain processes - like dyslexia - affects Muslims. My understanding is that there are hundreds of thousands of Malays who are dyslexic and don't know about it. A really cool website is "The Dyslexic Advantage". Anyway, dyslexic is not a problem but it does have to be managed. Whether or not you are successful / happy / grateful to Allah depends on your ability to understand yourself (including the way your mind processes information) well enough to turn apparent disablities into strengths.
Earlier today, I meet a trainer. He has to organize a 4 hour workshop for about 100 teenagers in trouble. These teenagers have been 'rejected' by their parents and their teachers. They are involved in pretty much every social problem you can think of. He asked me whether he could show some of the videos that MGT4110 / MGT4820 / MGT6610 students made......Hopefully, these videos will give hope to those without hope....
I am teaching management and organizational behaviour at the International Islamic University Malaysia. Since 2010, I have been researching anything related to Happiness in Islam. This blog documents my reading, my hypotheses,s and the data I collected.
