Leadership spirituality is receiving increasing attention in management and leadership literature and research. This quantitative research study examined the relationships between leadership spirituality, workplace spirituality, and organizational performance among Medicare-certified home health care agencies licensed in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Leadership spirituality and workplace spirituality were examined by a combination of H. Beazley’s (1998) Spirituality Assessment Scale and selected segments of Ashmos and Duchon’s (2000) Finding Meaning and Purpose at Work questionnaire. Organizational performance was measured utilizing Home Care Compare (2007) patient care outcome measures. Correlational measures suggested a moderate relationship between leadership spirituality and workplace spirituality, a very weak relationship between leadership spirituality and organizational performance, a very weak relationship between workplace spirituality and organizational performance, and a weak relationship between all three variables. Small sample size limited generalization of the results. It was suggested that further research focus on the relationship between leadership spirituality and organizational performance in other health care organizations.
