Ann Mills Karlslund

Personal and professional profile

I have trained as a coach in a number of different traditions and have a large repertoire of perspectives and tools. I adapt and use them so that my efforts best suit the individual client. I have recently been certified by The European Mentoring and Coaching Council. I have also trained and worked as a machine tool fitter and as a Master of Sociology.

But education is not everything. I have had many years of experience with cooperation and management in different organizations, companies and workplaces - in different cultures, both at home and abroad. I have helped employees, colleagues, and managers to find solutions when things had gone awry or they had difficulty finding solutions themselves.

And I have a distinct ability to meet people where they themselves are, and to see things from perspectives other than my own.
