I enjoy variety and change, am creative in overcoming obstacles, finding inventive solutions and I welcome new challenges. My style is methodological, focused and direct. My extensive international business experience and practical knowledge provides me with a useful platform for coaching. Having worked and developed people in different cultures and in different languages helps me to understand people and organisations better. Hence as a coach, my main focus is on these two areas: career transition and business and organisation’s performance. I am also interested in guiding women on their search of more fulfilling life.
I am a strong advocate for a balanced lifestyle of healthy eating, regular exercise, daily meditation, time spend in nature and a small dose of adventure.
I spend my free time on the golf course or yoga/pilates studio, and I am a committee member of the Royal Swedish Golfing Society.
