Frode believes in the power of great stories. When working with Frode, his clients – individually and as teams – find the stories that inspire them to stellar performance and delivering outstanding results.
Frode started his career in ExxonMobil, where he held various roles as team member and leader for 12 years. He learned how to create great teams and how to develop people.
Then he worked for 10 years for Capgemini – one of the top 5 Management Consulting companies – managing their office in his home town Stavanger, Norway. This gave him opportunities to hold various managerial positions and to manage challenging projects.
All his professional (and private) life, Frode has worked in the field of developing people – to get people to find their potential and to go for it. As a manager he was demanding and successful and created trust-based organizations where people could grow. As a coach and trainer he extends his “tough love” to his clients and help them go to places they didn’t think possible. He is constantly in search for great tools to help his clients solve the challenges of the 21st century.
“You know”, Frode says, “the word coach originally meant “a large kind of carriage”, to take you from where you are to somewhere else. I do that.”
Currently, Frode is dividing his time between London and the rest of the world. He is a proud father of 4 children – all of them great leaders in their own worlds. “The stories of my children inspire me and they frequently become part of my work.”
His clients include the largest companies in the world, where he gets to train leaders at various levels – in their regions (Asia, Europe and Americas) and at headquarters. Through this experience, he helps leaders overcome the challenges of working in a truly multi-cultural environment.
