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.
