Kerstin Weibull Lundberg started her career in the early eighties as one of few female leaders in the IT Industry, with an MSc in Industrial Engineering and a MBA in International Marketing. Her competences lead her to many different management, leadership and consulting assignments from board level to operations in large International corporations.
After almost 20 years in the industry, she realized something was missing. While committed and passionate about her work, she found an imbalance between using her masculine and feminine energy, and struggled to inspire herself and her team. She started her personal transformational journey to become an inspirational leader, and was certified as an ICF coach in 2003. Finding alignment at last, she went on to inspire more than a thousand leaders to take the next step in their leadership.
Her own leadership was furthered questioned by her own horse, giving her instant feedback without judgment on her lack of presence and pushy leadership style. It took a horse to show Kerstin the strength in being a vulnerable leader and to lead from her heart.
What is unique with Kerstin is the way she elegantly blends her experience from the industry with her enormous interest for nature and animals. With the use of clear understandable metaphors she creates a safe space to talk about feelings and what really matters.
She teaches people to “lead yourself and others with ease and grace.” In horse-assisted coaching sessions, Kerstin invites her clients to meet a herd of horses to get new perspective on their leadership. Since 2007 Kerstin has trained 60 horse-assisted coaches and facilitators as partners and had approximately 900 participants in leadership and team training workshops with horses.
Together with her horses, clients and partners, she has developed the ALIVE Leadership method during the past 10 years. The ALIVE Leadership method is a 5-step experiential learning approach, growing a person from the inside out. To make the journey of ALIVE Leadership an effective education, the participants need a mirror, to reflect leadership and leadership behaviors in other leaders, review, discuss and apply their experiences.
A certified Sistership Circle Facilitator, Kerstin uses circles as a vehicle to lead men and women to wake up and turn on their truth and create a worldwide community of conscious ALIVE leaders. Circle is an unique place to share experience and tune into what we want to share and letting go of attachments Kerstin is Swedish and live with her family, horses, dogs and cats on a farm 20 minutes from Stockholm International Airport and with the world as her marketplace.
