My approach to coaching

How much more powerful would training/coaching be if they all were facilitated by Mette! She is so professional, easy to connect with, and challenges you to get the most out of your training/coaching. I can recommend everybody to reach out to Mette if you want to get the most out of your own development.

Natascha van der Lijke

HR Director, SKF

Mette is very perceptive and could really guide me to finding solutions and paths forward that I often had within. She helped me a lot with perspective, to go high and low as necessary. I had several aha-moments during our sessions and I always felt motivated to take on challenges and opportunities after our sessions. I highly recommend Mette as a coach!

Peter Bladh

Director R&D, Kollmorgen

Mette delivered a 90-mins online workshop for more than 130 of our managers on the importance of values and self-leadership for leading in VUCA-times. It was much appreciated – 56 of 57 participants found it very good.

More compassion: Out now

Mera medkänsla – a thin book on compassion. It is in Swedish and available to order at your regular book store. I am contemplating a translation to English. Get your copy here.

I have interviewed 10 individuals, who live and work compassionately to explore the concept and how to exercise it in daily life.

Among interviewees are a former under-UN Secretary-General, a yogic nun, a medical doctor, a scientific zoo director, an ethics & compliance expert and a professional dancer.


What is coaching?

It is a way of structuring dialogue with yourself. Concretely, we book a range of 60 mins sessions, where you bring issues and challenges, you need to reflect on, and I ask questions for you to find ways forward. The conversations serve your purpose and follow your agenda, and are always 100% confidential.

How do I know if coaching is right for me or my company?

Good question – maybe you do not. I am trained to help you establish whether coaching is appropriate, so get in touch, and we’ll have a free, no-strings-attached conversation to establish just that. It happens that once or twice out of 10 times I ask prospective clients to refrain from coaching. Not everybody is coachable at any point in time.

Do you offer ongoing consulting services?

I structure my deliveries in cooperation with every client. Sometimes it’s a process over stretches of time (which is usually the case with individual coaching), and sometimes it’s a one-time gig. Let us talk about what you are looking for.

How do I book a coaching program/session?

We always begin with a conversation about your needs, timing and scope. After such a conversation, I usually need 1-2 weeks for preparation/available slots. One of my keywords is pragmatism, so get in touch, and we’ll speak soon.
