Ski family - Day 47


The last day of our 2012 ski vacation has ended. From left Finn is holding his new ski, which made him a better skier due to a better fit and grib. Next the daughters Mathilde and Amalie, who both made strong progress in becoming better at skiing and snowboarding. Then we have Lissen - Finn's wife - who also got a new pair of ski. As it turns out the cost of a good pair of ski has come down considerably and hence the ROI compared to renting is 2-3 seasons / trips.
My wife Vivi is very happy for her new very yellow skijacket, which - in her own opinion - made her a better skier. My son Christian had a fantastic week and really learned to master a snowboard. On the last day he went downhill with me on a black slope. Christian is holding my new set of ski - HEAD i.Speed Supershape - requiring "excellent skiing technique". Even though I've been skiing for over 20 years and think I'm a fairly good skier, this was a wakeup call for me. Suddenly it wasn't me controlling the skis but the skis controlling me. Alone the weight is twice my old skis and the ability to cut through ice and deep snow is marvelous.

x-teams

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

Architectural Cubism - Day 106

A new office building in the northern part of Copenhagen. I'm getting more into architectural photography and with CS6 it is easy to correct "falling lines" perspective errors. The outer walls are forming a moire pattern when photographed. Imaging how this would look if I used a Nikon D800E instead of my old Nikon D300 :-)

Equipment: Nikon D300 with AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8.
Exposure: 1/1000 sec at f/7.1, 0EV, ISO 200

Leder & Kommunikation

I juli 2004, da jeg var nordisk direktør for Bang & Olufsen, skrev jeg et kapitel til bogen "Kommunikationens mange ansigter".  Efter et veloverstået strategiseminar i sidste uge med min ledergruppe hos Strålfors Information Logistics, hvor jeg er administrerende direktør, så kom jeg til at tænke på denne tekst og fik lyst til at bringe den her på min blog, da budskabet fortsat er af største betydning for at lykkes med en strategiimplementering.

Der er fire grundpiller i kommunikation: Det verbale, det kropslige, det aktionsorienterede og det usagte. Der er også fire arketyper af modtagere i en moderne virksomhed: Individet, gruppen, personalet og det ophøjede individ. Uanset kommunikationsform og modtager så husk direkte, tydelig og ærlig kommunikation.

Kravene til en leders kommunikationsevner på jobbet er øget betragteligt over de sidste 10 år. Og ”jobbet” er her ikke ment i en snæver betragtning, men mere præcist det kommunikationsunivers en leder opererer i under u…
