Some personal guidelines
To be a consultant takes certain stands. I believe that people grow best by working with peers in development of their own work. I believe that any person has the capacity to develop and can be responsible provided the circumstances are right. Work is meaningful and the art of leadership can be learned. The poem by Albert Camus mirror my philosophy and I hope it is guiding my work with people - as a consultant.

For change beyond the surface
More than 30 years of experience in the field of developing people and work. In Sweden and internationally.
