About the speech: Deal with it

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.

This speech is based on my book (soon it will be published in English too): “Deal with it.” 

Josefine Campbell focuses in this book on the essence of being a good leader – how can we become a better version of ourselves? The combination of optimizing energy and mental presence is a powerful message that many leaders will be able to use to become a better version of themselves. At a turning-point in my life, I realized what it can do to be mentally clear. After that, it helped me handle my work with Pandora’s IPO. Today I use it in my work in Carlsberg, but also privately. In my opinion, it is more a self-development book than a management book – because, you can use the tool in all aspects of life. ”

“Thank you for a great speech. Very brave to lead out with the breathing exercise. I sat in the middle of the audience and I could feel how the whole crowd “landed” and became much more present. I am thinking of the great results should all speeches start like that!
