Who you are is how you lead!



 For business to succeed, it is essential to look at the leadership styles.  Only sufficiently  mature leaders inspire their people, surf in the turbulent changing VUCA world with focus and peace of Mind.


I empower executive leaders and managers to grow and mature personally, to broaden their mindset and inspire them to create supportive, inclusive organizational cultures for all people to thrive in, while caring for the climate, economical justice and for the sake of healing our planet.


...and results will follow!


  I understand the Human Being, her aspirations, needs, behaviors and reactions.  I'm an expert in human facilities. I have coached for over 3 000 hours, about 300 persons.  I'm the coach of leaders and coaches.

Vertical Evolution: Like a Plant - From Seed to Fruit 



Optimal regulation of DNA is seen as fluent, vibrant life of a cell and as deep purpose, a high level of self – directed activity leading to sustainable results - a long life. Vertical Leadership is the optimal regulation of enterprise DNA.

A tree has to adopt to its changing environment. It has to listen, adjust, regulate the function of its DNA to stay alive and thrive. So has an enterprise. With Leadership. With mature Synergist/ Strategist leaders, the enterprise runs as smoothly as a well organized plant cell or a tree.

The world of today needs mature, Teal or Synergist leaders for us all to thrive. For us as Humankind to save the Planet, our home.




Why Vertical Development?

It is a Proven Fast Track, 4 Times More Effective in 10 % of Invested Time



As a StageSHIFT partner Nordic DNA Coaching & Consulting  promises vertical outcomes fast. We offer transformative executive and team coaching, that goes to the heart of identity to expedite vertical evolution.

In terms of Vertical Development, only leaders with a high level of maturity (Synergist/Stragegist) are able to guide others with agility, rise above the disruption, build innovative and collaborative partnerships, and lead systemic transformation. Today, only 8% of executive leaders profile here and their proportion has only been growing at the rate of 1% per decade (PwC-Harthill).

A research study showed that 30% of participants in a deliberately developmental program shifted to a later stage following over 20 days in offsite leadership programs (Vincent, 2015).

In a one year long StageSHIFT Coaching process, 100% of the strategic leaders engaged shifted one stage  and 20% two stages to Synergist (Braks, 2020).
