Born and raised in Sweden, I now find myself on the other side of the world in beautiful Australia. Living in Sydney near the beach I now only have distant fading memories of walking through snow and sleet during the (many) dark months of the year in Northern Europe. I was lucky during my undergraduate studies to get a job with a consulting firm that looked at organisations a bit differently to many other consulting firms.
My time with at this consultancy firm provided me with great insights into the workings of organisation. Not least from the many very capable and smart people that were so generous when it came to sharing their knowledge and supporting me on my developmental journey – both professionally and personally.
I am deeply interested in organisations and their behaviour. The type of questions and challenges I’m grappling with are (amongst others):
- understanding how complex systems at times seem to have a mind of their own,
- how well intended efforts to introduce change often end up achieving the complete opposite to what was intended,
- how can we design better ways of working together to create organisations that are both great places to work and also achieve great things for their customers.
This blog is intended as a placeholder for my own reflections on the vast amount of interesting material I find on the net. If you happen to come across it and would like to comment on any of the content I encourage you to do so. It could be a great opportunity to push the thinking to a different space so it would be greatly appreciated.
All the best
