Description

An exploration of spirituality, values, and sustainability in business

When Jochen Zeitz and Anselm Grn first met onstage as "the manager and the monk", Zeitz was CEO and Chairman of Puma, and Father Gržn 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 these topical essays and dialogues, drawing on sources as diverse as the Bible, contemporary religious thought, psychological theory, and the innovative "environmental profit & loss account" Zeitz developed for Puma. Together, Zeitz and Gržn explore their intersecting definitions of prosperity, values, sustainability, among a host of other topics.

  • Jochen Zeitz was CEO of Puma for 18 years and is founder, with Sir Richard Branson, of the B Team, a global initiative aimed at transforming the future of business
  • Anselm Gržn is cellarer (business manager) of Mžnsterschwarzach Abbey in Germany, overseeing a staff of 300 in crafts such as beekeeping and brewing; and an internationally best-selling author of more than 300 books available in 35 languages
  • Translated from an award-winning German book, Gott, Geld, und Gewissen, which has been translated into 11 languages

The Manager and the Monk is a thoughtful, impassioned plea for how to manage responsibly in the modern world.
