New Interview

I was recently interviewed by Petra Hiemsta of Haagse Hoogvliegers as part of a series of 12 interviewing contemporary leaders about how they listen (lovingly) and embody loveful leadership in their daily practice. It aims to bundle the results of it in a book that will be published in late 2017/ early 2018! Read the article (in Dutch) here: “Vrede en verlichting brengen via muziek”
