About us

Our passion islies in the integration of organisation development and personal development. We believe that the next step in how organisations operate will fundamentally shift the way we as human beings connect to our workplaces. The researcher Frederic Laloux has concluded that we approach a world where more of us will self-manage, where we are encouraged to bring the whole of ourselves to the workplace, and where we connect to a truly meaningful purpose that matters for our organisation as well as for us as individuals.

This puts future leaders on what we call the inner path to leadership, where exploration of self-leadership, deep self-awareness and knowledge about how to motivate ourselves and others are essential.

We are colleagues and partners in life and live in Stockholm.
