Senior Lead, Category Marketing Men’s
I entered a coaching program with Morten as I was selected to join the “Under Armour Talent Acceleration program”. Through answering questions about my coaching preferences and personality Morten got selected for me. This turned out to be a great fit.
We directly bonded: I remember me saying at the end of the first lesson that Morten would be a person I would love to go drink a beer with.
The coaching sessions always felt like a conversation with an interested and smart person and many of my work related “issues” , we found out, were also connected to personal stories and experiences. Morten managed to make me feel that I can trust him from the first session and he was more than just a business coach to me.
Out of the conversations we had, he managed to ask the right questions, so that I came up with the solutions myself. I left every session with at least 1-2 tips and learnings. The homework that i was given, I was able to incorporated in the week after the session.
I learned to put things into perspective. I liked the question: “So if you do this, what is the worst thing that can happen”. That helped me to take myself less serious and reduce stress levels. Also I started to work more effectively and regained the fun at work. Eventually I managed to get the desired job upgrade.
