As Trust Artist and Certified Enterprise Coach with the Scrum Alliance, Olaf is a veteran and leader in the international Agile community.
In 20 years, he has visited and helped hundreds of organizations to transform. In that work, exploring the culture and making sense of leadership have become his specialty. His strategy: increasing trust and responsibility through invitation and clarity. Olaf doesn’t hesitate to show up as kind and blunt – discomfort grows his capacity to love what he dislikes.
Olaf is one of the founders of TrustTemenos Leadership Academy. They work with leaders increasing their clarity of identity and intention, and help growing organizations where safe spaces are available for people to show up and grow. In 2016 they published a workbook for leaders: Showing Up, available on LeanPub.
They invite leaders to become aware of how the clarity of who they are and what they want determines the results that emerge from the context – in leading lives, leading teams, as well as leading whole organizations.
Olaf has been helping organizations improve since 1998.
He started using XP in 1999. He has been Agile all his life.
He’s a proud member of the Scrum Alliance roster of 100 Certified Enterprise Coaches.
