An interview with Anselm Grün on leadership and calling
In een reeks interviews gaan Klaartje van Gasteren, Marnix Reijmerink en Jakob van Wielink – and, for this interview, Michiel Soeters as well – talk to famous international thinkers, all of whom demonstrate that discovering and recognizing our vulnerability allows us to uncover our talent and potential. These are the stories of people who dare to show themselves and invite and challenge readers to do the same.
In this interview, Anselm Grün, the Benedictine monk and international best-selling author, talks about how important it is for leaders to find and live in accordance with their calling.
“A leader must discover their inner calling in order to call others, wake them up and inspire them. In other words, they must be willing to search for and tap into their inner source of motivation in order to recognize talents in others, unlock them and allow them to flourish. In doing so, the leader facilitates results with the joy he introduces into the collaboration.”
The interview is published in the Journal for Coaching in the series 'Reveal your authentic self' in March 2020:
