Goodbye Strålfors - Day 11


Today is a sad day for me. After a little over 3 years as managing director for Strålfors Information Logistics A/S in Denmark my tenure is coming to an end. End January I'll leave the company and look for new challenges. I won't elaborate on this decision right now, but just say that it has been three fantastic years where we took an ailing company in a industry facing a tough time and turned it all around into a profitable company with a bright future. 

Yesterday I signed the biggest contract ever for Strålfors in Denmark and with that contract on board many exiting opportunities will arise for Strålfors and all the good and competent people working there. 

The role as country manager has been redefined as of January 2012 and my task has been completed. The ailing patient is doing well and a very capable management team can manage Strålfors in Denmark from this point. Good luck to all of my dear Strålfors Denmark colleagues. It has been a privilege working together with you and I'm proud of what we have achieved.

The photo I took with my iPhone today. It is an old building called "Templet" in Lyngby. I took the liberty and exchanged the word "Templet" with "EXIT.  Strålfors has been my temple for the past 3 years - now it is time to look for a new temple.

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.

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…

Portrait of executive for LinkedIN and CV

Finn has some strong facial features that fits well to a high contrast b&w photo. I asked Finn to pose facing both with the left and right side tilting his face slightly to give him som options depending on where the photo need to be uploaded.



The we tried a more direct pose showing his strong hands and with less contrast.


If you live near Copenhagen give me a ping if you want a new set of portrait photos for your CV or LinkedIN.
