Boganmeldelse: Livsfarlig Ledelse

Ledelse har i mange år været en passion for mig. Ud fra den erkendelse, at jeg har oplevet meget få gode ledere (subjektivt), hvilket har påvirket mig som menneske og medarbejder. Jeg har brugt rigtig lang tid på, at reflektere over ledere, deres ansvar, deres sti mod lederskabet, og sågar min egen plads i hele den ligning. Ligesom jeg havde en følelse af, at tingene kunne gøres anderledes, da jeg læste “The Digital Workplace” af Paul Miller, så har jeg…

Review – The Digital Workplace: How technology is liberating work

When I picked up Paul Millers book (or rather, opened it on my Kindle), it was like opening a Jack-in-a box and getting instantly punched in my senses by the clowns head.

He basically drew a scale on a…

Very often, I get workorders where I have to dig for a while, to find a solution. Over time, it can get pretty hard to keep track of what you’ve tried. That introduces a lot of potential rework, rereading, and retrying. Waste of time and effort. So what I’ve started doing is: I create a notebook in…

Get on the bus, or get off…

I recently read an article on LinkedIN, titled When it’s time to go: A look at the psychological contract. The article in itself was a good read, and I can definitely relate to what Dr. Marla Gottschalk points out. But what caught my attention was one of the comments (which appear to be removed). It said something along the lines of: Get on the bus, or get off. But don’t stand at the busstop complaining. While I completely agree with…
