About us

Who we are and how we engage

Why fraendi?

Fraendi is old scandinavian for kinship, companionship, partnership. We walk alongside, as friends. We stay in times of trouble. We give honest feedback and challenge our clients as well as ourselves to show up as the humans we are amidst the life around us, which we are part of. We are also friends with the lifeforms around us. In these times of multiple crisis it makes a difference.

It is for us the important add-on to the very high quality knowledge, experience and professionality we bring from our over 250 years experience of diverse professional life.

 

SOME OF OUR CORE BELIEFS AND PRINCIPLES

Develop together.

We explore new ways of being and challenge ourselves as individuals and as a community.

We know that we don’t know.

We hold only a few of some gazillion perspectives on the whole. Please bring yours so that we get a bigger picture.

We’re here to serve.

We are a part of life. We’re here to serve all beings and at least the seven generations that come after us.

We bring high quality.

Being friends is one. Being highly professional is the foundation. We know what we do and we’re good at it.

Show up in complexity.

Bring your fears, food and family. Let’s sit down and eat together. Then let’s do some groundbreaking work.

It’s the space in between.

Our perspective can shift from “the things” to how they are related. It makes a difference how we relate to each other.

 

Life is messy.

We help strategize and structure where it’s needed. And we know that a plan is only a plan. We deal with the real when it occurs.

We eat our own soup.

When we say development, we mean ours as well as yours. No need to feel superior in whatever way.
