Abstract

In this essay, I reflect upon my experiences with emerging poetry for organizing as an inter- and transdisciplinary researcher, lecturer, entrepreneur, coach and poet. By evaluating the why and what of my own poetry-making, I outline the way how I try to inspire people and organizations with and through poems. The essay tackles the question why writing poems is essential for an entrepreneurial and academic practitioner with a multiperspective perception like me; and what poems can tell and teach us about a multifaceted genuine professional praxis. My reflections and insights might inspire other organizational practitioners, entrepreneurs, leaders, managers, educators, academics, researchers and communicators to grasp the ubiquitous presence and relevance of poetry for organizing, researching, teaching, coaching and consulting.
