Do you want to punch me in the face?

The topic might be set due to that I’m just now reading the book Våldet (The violence) by Musse Hasselvall and Robert Svensson :). So, punching might of course be equal to give me feedback and share some thoughts.

The topic might be set due to that I’m just now reading the book Våldet (The violence) by Musse Hasselvall and Robert Svensson  So, punching might of course be equal to give me feedback and share some thoughts. 

Let me elaborate just a little to avoid further misunderstandings here. Two years in on my journey as an entrepreneur (actually, I hate that word) I have come to the point where I see my own business prosper and blossom, and at the same time I see the next abyss opening – is there a next level? Can I house all assignments in a good way? Do I want to build something bigger? What consequences does that have. So. A punch in the face strongly needed to wake up!

I started off on my own because an opportunity to be free, have lots of fun, and create and develop relationships with people I want to collaborate with and Co-create with. These values have followed me, and I have started to realize their meaning and importance to me. I have encountered lots of people in the same seat as myself that I today join forces with, exchange ideas together with and relate to. I am so grateful for all of you – Fredrik, Niklas, Siri, Björn, Stefan to mention some. You know who you are. But this that I’m reaching out for now is just a little different. Let me explain…

Just the other day, I reached out in one of my networks and said hey, I need a mentor! And I got just the punch I needed back saying “You’re so wrong. Stop acting like a spoiled Millenial!”. And in the following discussion I realized perhaps a sparring partner is a better description. I need someone that can add perspectives, throw things back at me, sometimes an expert end someone to relate to.

So – If you are a person with experience from starting and building business with a human touch who have experienced that your work life is everything from personal drives and personal relations to client development and ROI and think we could have fun together, please put on your gloves and reach out! I want to walk and talk, web coffee and sparr!

Living in the moment

”A minute to learn. A lifetime to master” was written on the box of the game Mastermind when I was a kid. I never thought so much about it then, but nowadays I think it applies to a lot of the things in life. Just this week, three different persons said to me “seems like you enjoy your life right now”, and yes, I do. Don’t know if that means I have mastered life yet, but I hope I’m on my way and here are a few secrets to that!

A dream has come true!

A dream has come true!

Mountains of all sorts have always attracted me. I remember being a kid and me and a friend brought a rope for the first time to the hill nearby where we lived and actually set a new (probably stupidly risky) route on the steepest section. A few weeks ago, I ceased the opportunity when Covid-restrictions now let up to go to Scotland and climb Ben Nevis

Bubble hopping – how to get new perspectives on things

When my six-year-old son asks me what I do at work, my answer is simply “I help people collaborate and a lot of that is about asking them questions to make them think for themselves because they, just as you, most often have the answers themselves. They just need a little time to think.”

CoCreate – a way of challenging the consultancy business

Mid-pandemy, I had a small digital after work with Johan Welander, a wise friend of mine. He, just as me, is running his own business, is into public speaking and also a high level HR nerd. He said that three years into being self employed and gigger, he started to have the same questions popping up as after a couple of years at earlier workplaces: Is this really forever? What is my next step? Where do I go from here?

Heard of hell week?

Heard of hell week?

I just had a hell month. This autumn, September just flew by. I have never had so much to do, and I’m totally grateful for the opportunities presented to me by my clients and partners. It comes as the same time as a puppy enters my family (and office), my youngest son starts a new school and my wife starts a new job. And now, out on the other side where I’m grateful the light in the tunnel wasn’t a train, it got me thinking…

Reflections after Beyond Retreat in Fulufjället national Park 2021

Reflections after Beyond Retreat in Fulufjället national Park 2021

Busy is the new stupid. Those words flashed by on LinkedIn a while ago. And it stills seems legit. The last year has taught me the importance of unscheduled time. Not without direction. But with focus on my own inner direction. This autumn started with the possibility to come back to that inner direction in the best way possible. Together with Siri Wikander and Niklas Lindhardt, I brought 10 leaders from different businesses to Fulufjället national Park for Beyond Retreat. And these are my key takeways from this cocreated journey.

Time flies when you have fun!

And this year really flew away! I have been privileged not to be affected too much by the pandemic and the last months I have been doing so much fun things, but now summer is sneaking into my life more and more and it is soon time for a few weeks out of office. But first I must share some great news!

The Hybrid workplace – yet another new normal?

So I’m finally joining in the chant of the prophets on how to organize our work life post the pandemic. But I want to add a perspective I haven’t seen so much of, and that I find crucial – a growth mindset. I hope this article can give you interesting reading as well as practical tips on how to make a transition towards a growth mindset, which I see as one of the most important prerequisites in to the next new normal. and the next. And the next…
