About this keynote
At the age of twelve, I took part for the first time in the Danish National Jiu-Jitsu Championship. Jiu jitsu is a Japanese martial art. You use both inner and outer strength as a martial artist. I tagged along only because of the companionship and because the others in the club had promised to support me. In that way I was not different from most other young girls. I joined for social reasons. Later on, I got very surprised when I won.
I was not the physically biggest, I was not the physically strongest, and I had only been practicing for a year, so I was not the most experienced. Far from. Many of my competitors had years of practice behind them. Not until much later, I understood that I won because I was more fit inside than my competitors.
In my practice as an Executive Coach, I have seen how easily those inner fitness techniques are being adapted and used by the leaders, talents and other professionals I work with, when they have to deal with challenges at work.
Being fit inside is not exclusive for martial art champions and leaders. It doesn’t depend on your gender, race, size or any other outer characteristic. It is accessible to anyone. But it is true, what the evolutionist Darwin said that it is the fittest that survive. Also, at the end of the day, the fittest will be more likely to thrive.
