Hofsmarken has extensive experience in management and organizational development from public and private companies. He has developed pragmatic and documented methods for how management groups and leaders increase interaction and profitability.
Terje emphasizes that organizations are complex and dynamic and that relational is crucial. Therefore, he focuses not only on the individual leader, but on the leader’s real-life context and relationships. Terje emphasizes that leadership development and leadership training include both managers ‘and employees’ real everyday contexts, and that the measures should increase the quality of the interaction within the organization. The experience of Hofsmarken is that a relational perspective on leadership recognizes the interdependence of an organization, which means that both managers and employees are constantly evolving and together taking greater ownership
