In this episode of "What Does Poetry Have To Do With Leadership?", JMJ consultants Kathryn Schindler and Kelli Bettenhausen explore "Walking Meditation" by Thich Naht Hanh, a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, peace activist, and poet 

Kathryn and Kelli explore what happens when management stops talking and starts listening.  It means reversing the flow of communication. Doing a listening tour as a specific act of leadership builds connectenedness with people on the front lines. 

The poem ‘Walking Meditation’ is from the book 'Call Me By My True Names: The Collected Poems of Thich Nhat Hanh', published by Parallax Press; New Edition (August 9, 2001).  If you enjoyed the poem, and wish to purchase the book, ask for a copy wherever fine books are sold.
