Poor behavioural disposition has become a global issue both in formal and informal settings. Some Muslim managers are also cut up in the ebb. However, spirituality has become a means through which many organizations effect behavioural modification. Thus, both religious and non-religious organizations consider that spirituality drives good acceptable behaviour. Past researches have not succinctly explored how Islamic spirituality determine positive behavioural disposition among management cadre, especially the Muslim managers. Therefore, this study was to co-construct theory that explains how Islamic spiritual culture (ISC) guides behavioural disposition of Muslim managers. Sequentially, 16 and 24 participants were interviewed to gain their experiences; first about ISC, and second right guidance; both with behavioural
disposition through grounded theory approach of qualitative methods. The efforts in this regard based on social constructivist perspective of Kathy Charmaz. Consequently,
a Tawhidic theory of behavioural disposition for Muslim managers was co-constructed by the participants and the researcher. The applicability of this theory in other contexts
motivated additional round of interviews to include participants of different status. The result of that is a Providential Steering formal grounded theory, which was also coconstructed with collaboration of the participants and the researcher. These theories highlight processes, actions, and structures to follow to demonstrate acceptable behavioural disposition in Islamic and general perspectives respectively. Hence, theoretical implications of the study revolve theoretical breath and procedural chains on the two new theories for scientific community, while the practical implications of the study concern plausible propositions to both Muslim managers and the general public.
