Review :

Q & A with Jochen Zeitz, Coauthor of The Manager and the Monk

Jochen Zeitz How did you and Father Anselm Grün first come to write The Manager and the Monk?

We met in Nuremberg during an onstage discussion at a conference. On that day, and in the months that followed, we were inspired by each other's different experiences and perspectives and saw that we could learn from one another. We stayed in touch and continued the conversation, even exchanging roles. I spent a week in Father Grün's monastery and he spent time at my company. More often than not, we found we had similar beliefs and values, and in the spirit of sharing, we decided to document our dialogue.

How are your roles in the world more similar than some might think?

As a CEO and as the head of a large abbey, we were both seen as leaders and role models by the individuals within our organizations. We recognized a shared responsibility to think beyond the immediate business requirements to how decisions could affect these people and the environment around us, which we were essentially responsible for in the long term. Ultimately, we both had to ensure that principles were guiding us. This is where the business world and the spiritual world can and should intersect. On a more personal level in our roles, we both wished to protect the environment, improve society, and employ sustainable methods, both within our "companies" and beyond. For me, this has translated into starting initiatives such as The B Team since I left PUMA.

How did spirituality and ethics affect the way you ran PUMA?

Within a company it is imperative to have guiding principles and a foundation in place to address questions - whether they are ethical or spiritual - that come up during the day-to-day running of a business. At PUMA, we had an overarching ethical framework defined by the 4 Key principles of being Fair, Honest, Positive, and Creative, as applied to all professional behavior, business procedures, and relationships throughout and outside of PUMA.

Who should read The Manager and the Monk?

The Manager and the Monk caters to a large cross-section of people. CEOs, directors, and managers will be inspired by seeing the world from a different point of view, as I did when I began this journey with Father Grün, as will those who have already found their own journey and are seeking encouragement. It is also a book for those entering the business world who recognize that they want to go beyond the traditional paradigm of 'business for profit' and consider people and planet as essential to the equation.

The Manager and the Monk has appeared in 15 languages. What makes it so universally appealing?

The questions Father Grün and I ask ourselves and each other in this book are universal. They are questions we all seek answers to, and ones that my peers and I continually ask ourselves, such as: Do core values stand a chance in the world of business? How much consideration and empathy can a manager afford to show? What do money and success mean to us?

From the Inside Flap :

When Jochen Zeitz and Anselm Grn first met onstage in 2008 as "the manager and the monk," Zeitz was CEO and chairman of PUMA and Father Grn was a monk serving as cellarer, the business manager of his Benedictine abbey. They came together to discuss their shared goal: what it means to lead and manage responsibly and sustainably in today's shifting world.

Available for the first time in English, The Manager and the Monk features topical essays and dialogues inspired by their ongoing series of conversations.

Touching on the most pressing challenges facing any business today, both Zeitz and Grn draw deeply on the stories and lessons of their managerial and spiritual backgrounds. Zeitz served as the youngest CEO of a publicly-listed company in German history, transforming PUMA from an ailing brand into a multibillion-dollar powerhouse and developing PUMA's trailblazing "Environmental Profit and Loss Account," an award-winning corporate sustainability initiative. As the business manager of the Mnsterschwarzach Abbey in Germany, Grn was responsible for the economic administration of the abbey, its 300 employees, and 20 businesses.

What truly unites them, however, is a keen interest in exploring the spiritual and ethical dimensions of their work. Both manager and monk call on sources as diverse as the Bible, contemporary religious thought, and psychological theory to explore provocative questions on a variety of topics, such as:

  • When we speak of corporate "culture" what does that have to do with "culture" in society at large?
  • Can a business simultaneously embrace spiritual values while delivering shareholder value?
  • Are there lessons in the way we should manage natural resources for how we should manage people?

Rich with insights on spirituality, values, and sustainability in business, The Manager and the Monk is a thoughtful exploration and impassioned plea for how to manage responsibly in the modern world.
