WE OFFER SAFE SPACES

FOR CHANGE, AWARENESS AND GROWTH PROCESSES WITH TEAMS AND ORGANIZATIONS

MOVEMENT FOR UPGRADING AND INNOVATING

It makes a big difference to use the intelligence and innovation power of employees, or not to do so. The “roll-out” of initiatives often provokes resistance when they come “from the top”, from experts or from outside.

It has proven to be more elegant and effective to develop the necessary insights, corresponding attitudes and new solutions together with employees “from the middle of the organization”.

In this way, existing expertise and energy potential can be put to optimal use in a work environment characterized by great complexity.

When change is driven by the people involved, it triggers a wave that sometimes starts small before gaining momentum.

We Offer

It is our passion and expertise to design and execute inspiring processes that produce appropriate solutions, insights, growth experiences and mindsets for new action. We want to facilitate movement and innovation.

We support organizations on their journey from mechanistic and silo-like hierarchies to living organisms that are naturally agile, networked and focused on a common and unifying purpose.

Our innovative, dynamic ways of working trigger movement, renew spirit and support a collaborative culture of shared responsibility for the whole. In this way, change is driven by intrinsic motivation in an organic way.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Torbjørn Almlid

Former CEO of Norsk Tipping, a Norwegian company with annual profits of more than 500 million euros

“In my time as CEO of Norsk Tipping, I have appreciated Lars as an understanding and skilled change agent for moving the company’s IT development from complicated and time-consuming processes in separate “silos” into agile and well-coordinated teams with a high degree of self-organization. This was a major transformation for managers and employees. Lars contributed to the vision for the change and to a feeling of safety in this transition, as well he trained our staff in establishing a new mindset to get started with new ways of working. Thank you!”

Monica Mathisen Jørgensen

leader of the employment, welfare and qualification agency Ringsaker, Norway

“From our first meeting, Lars offered his perspectives and his presence. As an external project manager, he gave us challenges and created significant added value in a two-year project for employee-driven innovation with many stakeholders. I experienced Lars as a true connoisseur of human nature with a lot of warmth, great expertise, commitment and drive.”

Solfrid Marthinsen

Teamleader, Adult education center, municipality of Ringsaker, Norway

“Lars led and facilitated an interdisciplinary inter-municipal project group for coordination of services around refugees, which I have actively participated in for two years. He opened our eyes to how we worked sequentially in separate silos and supported us in designing and testing new simultaneous ways of working in interdisciplinary teams. I am grateful for the personal and professional boost that I have experienced through this work and for Lars’ present, visionary and at the same time concrete way of guiding us through the process.”

Joe McGrath

leader for Management Development, Toyota UK

«An excellent programme which has expanded my mind and belief in what is possible. Thank you, Lars.»

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Joakim Lystad

Former CEO of the Norwegian Labor and welfare agency (NAV) and the Norwegian Food Safety Authority

“Lars designed the first and facilitated the second day of a two-day conference with over 100 managers when I was CEO of the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. I valued the advice he gave me, both before and after the conference. The day in Open Space format that Lars facilitated was important in the further development of leadership and organizational culture in the agency.”

May-Britt Nordli

former CEO, Jevnaker municipality, Norway

“During av meeting with my senior management team, Lars did a demo coaching session with me using his Mindset Upgrade approach. Within minutes, I had transformed my inner “auto-pilot” approach to a task that was important to me. I immediately witnessed the effect of this in practice.
Soon after, I asked Lars to hold a 3-day retreat with the 25-30 top managers in the municipality to teach us the Mindset Upgrade processes and a basic approach to coaching colleagues and employees on a deep level. During these three days alone, transformations and upgrades became visible among the participants, and I witnessed significant positive behavioral changes also afterwards… as if something had “fallen into place” for some. Thank you, Lars!”

Trond Stenvik

CEO, Overhalla municipality, Norway

«Utviklingsprogrammet med Lars og det han har formidlet er en stor motivasjon for videre personlig og profesjonell utvikling.»

About us

HI, MY NAME IS LARS, ALSO CALLED AWÈ

I founded Terra Life to unleash even more of the potential of human beings and organizations. It’s my passion is to serve as a space holder for development and growth. I meet leaders, teams and other employees with empathy where they are right now, open doors to new consciousness and a new mindset, and provide them with customized processes and tools to create new results.

My work is characterized by a dedication to what is possible for people, teams and organizations to achieve in terms of upgrades, agility and new ways of working.

Hi, my name is Lydia

I work with people in and through their change processes – together we strengthen resources and our body awareness. We experiment, feel and reflect in live encounters. In this way, we leave self-criticism and perfectionism and move towards even more compassion for ourselves and others. When I understand myself and the processes in my body better and am more and more willing to take full responsibility for my actions, something new can arise internally and externally.

HI, MY NAME IS KATRIN

Creating great things… letting energy flow… For me, music is pure magic and life…
I help people and teams to free themselves from limiting behavioral patterns and structures, to evolve. The basis of my work is the healing, life-enhancing frequencies in music and in our beautiful nature. I am particularly interested in creating spaces where you can recognize your own power and integrate it into your everyday life. This depth allows people and organizations to walk authentic paths from the heart.
