Havard Lillethun is a happy, authentic, caring, inspiring and sometimes crazy guy who loves to help others discover and develop their purpose and passion.
Havard is Norwegian, but he was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. He grew up in Chicago and Geneva before moving to Bergen, Norway. He has lived the last 30 years in India, Nepal, and Thailand.
A few years ago, after having worked in the same field for over 30 years, he felt a dissatisfaction with where he was in life, a nagging feeling that if he continued down the same path he would end up unhappy and unfulfilled. It was time for a change. But how? The next couple years of trying new things, of failing, and trying again, were very difficult, filled with obstacles and challenges. It seemed like life did its damnedest to keep him from making that change. But he was determined to make it and to create the life he wanted.
As part of this journey, he shared his experiences and lessons with many. To his surprise he found that most people shared similar frustrations, of not living life to the full, of not feeling in charge, of not being the fullest expression of their potential, of letting the conditions determine their level of success rather than being the creator of their own destiny.
He noticed one more problem that was also very prevalent. Many people explained that interacting with people from different cultures was a major challenge. They were not able to work and communicate effectively across cultures. No wonder 70% of international ventures fail because of multi-cultural problems.
Havard has now combined his life-changing lessons and success strategies with the cultural and global experiences he gained from living and working all over the world to create courses and seminars on personal development, communication, leadership, and cultural intelligence, courses that will soon be available here on Havard LIllethun Online Academy.
Havard is passionate about using his coaching and training to help others achieve the life they want and deserve, a life where happiness and fulfillment doesn't come at the expense of financial or material success, but where they come together.
