If we can create organizations that stands on the foundation of a clear purpose, we can also become more attractive to talented people who will feel that their purpose links to the organization's purpose and then can contribute with their full potential. Imagine the power we can create then!

About Helene Ählberg
My passion is to help individuals and groups to reach their full potential by developing their ability to collaborate, exploring new ways of working and developing new organizational structures. I am convinced that by finding our own personal purpose, we can find our passion and sense of meaning. We can create sustainable and people-oriented organizations that, through their purpose, make a difference for themselves and for others.
I have a master’s degree in Business Administration and have added an education as an organizational consultant and coach to that. I quickly realized that it was not the numbers that created my passion at work, it was the people! I have now worked with the development of organizations, groups and leaders for over 25 years and it is just as fun still.
Even if the job is fun, it’s also tough to be an entrepreneur. The summer of 2016 came to an end with exhaustion when I ran straight into the famous “wall”. It took me over a year to get back to some kind of a normal state but I still did not know where my process would take me. Along the way, I have worked a lot with my own personal development, including working with an intuitive coach, meditation and yoga for example.
During the sessions with my coach, I also had many deep spiritual experiences that were completely new to me and at first I had a very hard time absorbing these experiences. I wanted to reject them immediately because I don´t confess to any religion. But,they were such strong and powerful experiences that it was impossible to defend oneself and deny them. Here somewhere came my aha moment, there is actually a very strong voice inside me that I should listen to more. My intuition or my soul, whatever you choose to call it. These experiences made me slowly but surely gain more energy, I began to see a light in the dark tunnel I was in. Even though I did not know what I was heading towards on my journey to recovery. Somewhere I have still had a trust and confidence that I will get the help I need. Sometimes I must honestly admit that trust fails when I have thought it goes too slow and I have not known what the next step should be.
In this work, my own purpose has become an important part for me to focus on. How can I create meaning in what I do and what should I contribute with to somehow make this world a better world to live in?
This is also why I want to help others find their purpose and to help companies to align and work according to their purpose. There is such an enormous power and potential in this that we just can´t ignore!
After having seen so many organizations where people do not feel well, are disengaged, are not allowed to develop or influence to the extent that they could do, my deep belief is that we must lead differently!
If we can create organizations that stands on the foundation of a clear purpose, we can also become more attractive to talented people who will feel that their purpose links to the organization’s purpose and that they can contribute with their full potential. Imagine the power we can create then!
