Erik Bertrand Larssen

GROWING UP IN
NORWAY,

Erik was always the smallest kid in the class. He was bullied by his peers. Alone and outside, he sought refuge in reading about famous people who did something extraordinary, from athletes and inventors to politicians and adventurers. He found motivation in the fact that many of the role models had had a rough childhood too. Their chances of success were slim, just like his.

After leaving the military, he worked in the telecom industry, moved into headhunting and then started performance and career coaching on the side. Today, Erik is the number one performance coach in Norway with clients ranging from business executives to Olympic athletes. His international clients include Microsoft, the Boston Consulting Group and StatOil, the largest oil company in Norway. His unique cross-discipline experience with military training, business and corporate structure, and top sports figures puts him in a position to bring a wide range of tactic and perspective to his work, no matter the beneficiary.

Often, there are just very small differences between the best and the rest.
