In conversation with Nick Craig about leadership and purpose
In a series of interviews, Klaartje van Gasteren, Marnix Reijmerink and Jakob van Wielink talk to 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, Nick Craig talks about the quest for purpose: everyone’s unique gift to the world that becomes visible and tangible because we are all invited to utilize our talents to benefit the world around us. He tells us how purpose is connected to the work he does with leaders and organizations worldwide.
“Living your purpose is a ‘soul contract’. It is not about money, it is about an inner yearning to make a difference in the world. Your challenge as a human being and as a leader – when you know what your purpose is and when you have awoken as it were – is to seek ways to awaken others around you. That way, they can also discover what their unique gift to the world is.”
The interview is published in the Journal for Coaching in June 2020 in the series ‘Reveal your authentic self’:
