Hans is an experienced coach, facilitator, and business, learning and development professional, operating as an independent consultant for more than 20 years. He works with organisations to dramatically improve performance through the individuals within. Having the right people in a business, people who are inspired and motivated, is the key to delivering the highest levels of effectiveness and success.
Han’s coaching approach is to help individuals deal with immediate challenges in a motivational and inspirational way, as well as assisting with planning and achieving medium- to long-term goals. The focus is to enhance individual performance, optimize relationships, improve the job satisfaction of the individual, and empower them to achieve greater success. Hans is an impartial, unbiased listener, providing objective support undistracted by hidden agendas or internal politics. Frequently, clients open up to an external party and admit to pressures they may not wish to concede to their peers.
Hans specialises in Management and Leadership Development, Executive Coaching and Teambuilding, and has partnered with Cegos UK in delivering a range of public training programmes in communication, influencing, interviewing, sales, finance, and performance management. Before moving into Training and Organisational Development, his early training was with Price Waterhouse, delivering public programmes and working on in-company development initiatives.
Hans runs his own consultancy in the UK, working with a variety of clients including Google, BT, CHUBB Insurance, Highways England, Wolff Olins, Dell, Black & Decker, Punch Pub Company, Virgin Media, Deutsch Bank and American Express.
He lives with Sally in leafy Worcestershire and has three adult children who still give him sleepless nights. He’s passionate about sport, particularly rugby, which he has played and coached for many years from Under 8s up to Under 19s. He travels extensively, particularly to visit his family in Norway, and is very proud of his Norwegian heritage despite being a loyal England supporter – in everything except cross-country skiing, when he reverts to his Norwegian ancestry.
