hero background


I subscribe to the idea that our intelligence is seen in our flexibility to adapt to the changing complexity of situations – both the people involved and their context. So intelligence is to be seen in our actions not in our thoughts and words.

So my teaching aims at optimizing the possibility of changes in action in participants.

2019 was a particularly exciting and challenging year as two companies (Computacenter and Dundee Precious Metals (Tsumeb) implemented initiatives where I worked with the full management team from middle to the senior executive team including CEO of both companies.

I am always amazed at the way new challenges and possibilities manifest themselves each year. Already in 2020 I was given the chance to work one-on-one with a participant from one of my corporate programmes at my home for the day. It was a wonderful experiential interaction where we also took the opportunity to get a sense of the greater context of our work by kayaking.

There are typically three types of Teaching that I am currently involved in, the first two of which I offer directly to the client:

Executive Leadership Programme. 3 x 2 day modules spread over 5 – 6 months with a follow-up day scheduled approximately six months after the end of module 3.

Personal Leadership Programme. An initial two day workshop with a follow-up two days scheduled approximately two/three months later.

Other courses. I teach on a number of other courses for several institutions as well as independent programme co-ordinators. This year I also want to start exploring the possibility of making one of the most powerful leadership-in-action experiences from ELP accessible to a wider audience.

I am also involved in Coaching (both in person and via Skype) and occasionally agree to be Speaker at Company conferences or Workshops.
