The Journey of My Life
Growing up I had every opportunity to enjoy sports and the outdoors. At age 11 I was skippering a small sailboat on a muli day trip with friends. Years later it culiminated in my skippering a sailing boat across the Atlantic and kayaking solo the entire Norwegian coast from Sweden to the Russian border.
As a teenager I spent two years together with students from some eighty nations at United World Colleges in Wales, experiencing how similar we all are, despite cultural differences. Later, after earning a Siviløkonom at BI Norwegian Business School, where I was elected president of the students union, and studying for an MBA degree in the US, I landed my dream job as product manager with a leading consumer brands company.
I had achieved everything I had worked for, however I nevertheless felt like a key piece was missing…
My Journey as a Coach
That missing piece turned out to be the beginning of a life long path spurred by the universal question ‘Is this all there is?’ and eventually it lead me on to a path of personal development spanning decades. It included training and working as a meditation instructor, spending six months in a meditation centre in India and completing an extensive psychotherapist training in Germany.
In the years to follow I learned from the best coaches and trainers in the US, and more recently completed certiﬁcate trainings in NLP and Applied Neuroscience in London. The process of life long learning and reﬁning my skills as a coach continues to this day.
Today I live and work on the Lofoten islands, north of the polar circle, enjoying powerful nature, midnight sun and northern lights. This helps me view you and your situation in a greater perspective, which is hard to get in the the city. Combined with 40 years of experience this enables me to offer some of the most powerful coaching available anywhere.
How to Work With Me
-If we decide to work together it WILL change your work and your life forever and I promise you—I promise you, that it will be one of the most rewarding things you have ever done, quite possibly the most rewarding.
A TYPICAL COACHING SESSION with me is simply a conversation, typically via video, where I ask you powerful questions and listen to you like you’ve never been listened to before, complemented by me sharing observations and valuable information when called for, so that you can have new insights and uncover the ideas and answers that lie within you.
WE START by having an initial conversation, free of charge and with no obligation, during which you get to experience my coaching style and personality to see if we are a good fit. We focus on what’s most important to you, what it is you’d like to achieve and then as your coach I start in this session to help you move towards it.
IF YOU THEN DESCIDE to continue with me as your coach we discuss what type of coaching arrangement might be most useful for you to achieve what you want, i.e. how often and for how long.
SOMETIMES, completely unexpectedly, it may be a few hours, days or weeks after a coaching session that you have your greatest insight, so be ready for some positive surprises.
I TRULY LOVE WORKING WITH PEOPLE and as your coach I will do all I can to support you in creating an extraordinary quality of work and life.
IMAGINE elevating your sense of purpose, success and fulfilment through the support of a professional coach!
