For almost 15 years I have been building and leading agile engineering teams and coaching engineers in their personal growth and development. I strongly believe in servant leadership and the value of a healthy work environment and culture. With my strong technical background as a software developer, I am able to credibly lead, coach and motivate teams and engineers as a role model in both words and actions.
During my time as a leader and manager I have always kept on programming and being involved in the software development process. This is important to me.
Areas of expertise
- Situational, modern and agile servant leadership in engineering environments and organizations.
- Active, clear, confident and explicit coaching that promotes individual development through positive and constructive feedback.
- Passionate and personal leadership characterized by energy, trust, competence and pride.
- Recruitment and staffing of highly competent engineering teams.
- Inspiring, diverse and inclusive engineering environments where perspectives are valued, ideas welcome and where goals are reached and celebrated together.
- The ability to adapt and switch context between a strategic, tactical and operational mindset.
- Implementing and improving agile mindsets and DevOps practices.
- The constant strive for improvement in a learning culture with a collaborative attitude.
Key drivers and motivation
I get my energy from managing and evolving highly functioning engineering- and software development teams. I find it very stimulating to be confronted with situations where the outcome is not clear. To learn is to live and I truly enjoy sharing knowledge and the process of learning together with others. After 27 years in the IT industry, I still love every day I get to work with brilliant people on challenging projects.
I am currently serving as Engineering Manager at nShift in Gothenburg, Sweden.
