My academic experiences at your service
Since 2002, I am teaching at university level from 1styear to master level, in multi-cultural classes. I have been teaching in Sweden, France, South Africa, Rwanda in French, English and Swedish. I have been teaching in business administration, management & marketing broadly speaking. This long accumulation of teaching and pedagogical development is at your services.
My experiences are there in connection to my research on work-life management, life puzzle and its balance. It is also there as freelance/independent teacher in business administration from lectures, modules or full courses.
Enhancing students’ self-leadership now and in their future
In my 20 years of university teacher, I witnessed so many clichés about work-life among students so that many may not be ready to work and start their “so called real life”.
As university staff, we know that full-time students are supposed to work 40 hours a week but that also know that student life is made of many elements that need to be combined even when conflicting: studying while also working part- time, developing friendships while taking care of family or starting a relationship and going making friends while developing a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, we know that while being students, these young adults are figuring out their life dreams and life purpose and that such confusion leads to stress and frustration.
Our social responsibility, in regard to UN global Goals such as Goals #3, #4 & #17 , is to support students so that they could make informed choices in terms of subject selection as well as long-term career choices. Our ethical responsibility is to prepare students for their working life by empowering them creating a balance student life so that they can learn about the future life puzzling processes. This shall enable them to not only survive university life but capitalize on their university experiences for their future.
Work-life Module in Leadership Courses
To increase students’ knowledge, capabilities as well as mindset in regard to work-life leadership, I offer you a module based on “lecturing” moments and “seminar” moment. Lecture covers work-life research-based knowledge and seminars may be based on case-base or life case using the student’s own experiences. An ideal module is composed of 4 hours lectures and 4 hours seminars. This may be done over one day. All can be tailored to your course or even to an introduction week program.
Work-Life Guest lecturing & webinars
2 hours, in Swedish, English & French, some ideas:

• Communicating and working in a cross-cultural group work
• Building my life puzzle, from integration to segmentation of my life domains.
• What do I want and what can I do to reach a work-life balance and harmonious work-life puzzle?

• Stress management and work-life puzzle
• Genuine and authentic leadership for work-life balance
• Living up to my core values to reach work-life balance
• Leading and organizing sustainable work-life balance
Personal leadership and/or work-life coaching
As part of leadership course, I propose to have individual coaching to enable students to reflect and develop on their leadership and ultimately their work-life processes. The idea is to combine the academic knowledge of leadership and work-life with coaching program during the course. In comparison to traditional feedback, coaching will enable the students to be in the centre of their learnings. Students will get individual attention. This may be even done as part of 1st year, to increase students’ confidence in team work…
Enhancing future leaders and future HR managers in understanding work-life & being work-life oriented
Any leaders and managers as well as HR managers and leaders are responsible for individuals’ well-being for which work-life balance is an essential component. But do leadership and HR students have a solid knowledge about work-life? Or are students only reading the work-life chapter in their HR book, which is often the last chapter, as if work-life was the cheery on the cake… I offer you to change that and transform your students. I propose you to develop a theoretical & academic work-life courses enabling students to better and deeper understand work-life processes from a multi-faceted research-based knowledge, their challenges and their consequences for sustainably leading and organizing. Such course should be approved and led to university credits as an in-depth leadership and/or HR course. Below is how such a course look like, but of course let’s together discuss why and how we could make a difference.
Let’s together create a course such as “Leading and Organising for sustainable work-Life balance, 7,5 credits”….specific for you !
