Crash - Day 19



It's kind of symbolic. After my "reset" from professional work life, both my iPhone and now also my MacBook Pro chose to malfunction to a degree that a 100% system installation was necessary.

One thing is an Iphone - but a total different issue is when your computer is experiencing a total system melt down. The blue screen you see on the photo is the one thing you don't wont to see when starting your PC. I even tried re-installing from a week old Time Machine back up, but that didn't work either (the full backup including applications and data was transfered but still - blue screen after reboot. So I had to find my original OS DVD - insert it and press and hold "c" down to initiate a reboot from the DVD and then go through the hassle of first installing OS X Leopard and then OS X Lion (3 hours). Now finally I have re-installed all applications, presets in LR, etc. Unfortunately I lost one week of work including a lot of photos. I grabbed my Nikon D300 with shaking hands at turned it on to check the content of the flash card. Luckily I hadn't erased the app. 200 portrait photos I took of a friend of mine for her website. They where still in the camera flash card. Normally I delete photos on the flash card right after I've imported them to LR. Lesson learned = Time Machine back up every day! I'm even doubling my photo backup now, so I do it every day on two external hard drives.

By the way - if you are in the need of an external hard drive - I have a great offer on a 2 TB WD external hard drive here in my little web shop (Danish customers only).

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…
