In 2017 sky high expectations to myself catapulted me home on my couch in my small Nørrebro apartment in Copenhagen. For 3 months I spent most of my time sleeping, meditating, and walking. Social interaction was way more sporadic than usual.
I was working as a management consultant and had recently been trusted with the role as project leader of a +10 million DKK project. Yes, it was a complex project spanning 10 countries and included leading and developing bright colleagues in my project team.
But what pushed me over the edge was merely my own unrealistic expectations and non-ability to say, “No thanks, I am not ready for the role – ask me again in a year or two”.
From this time on I have been hooked on how we can create healthier, more flexible, and thriving workplaces through honest investigation of our inner landscape and from personal growth.
The next generation of leaders are at the centre of my work.
