Meet Anna Rosetzsky Permin
Please introduce yourself
My name is Anna and I am 39 years old, and live in Copenhagen with my daughter and my boyfriend.
In life I’m trying to stay focused on what is important and how to stay balanced between work and home when passion, fun, learnings and challenges are in both.
Which team and when did you graduate?
I graduated in 2011 from Team 15
What have you been doing since you graduated as a Kaospilot?
Since I graduated, I have been traveling, started up a cultural house in Copenhagen, Østerbro, and started up a web magazine called SEIN, that tells honest and personal stories from the age of 15-25 years. Now I work as a project leader at Politiken where I try to make Politiken more interesting for the age group of 20-30 years.
What is important for you in your job?
Social medias have made it very challenging to grow up in an environment where you have the time to figure out your needs, challenges and goals in life. It makes young people stressful, lonely, and insecure. At the same time the danish media try to write about the youth, without asking them questions, and also with a lot of assumptions.
In my job I try to give the youth a voice. I help create a room in the media where it´s okay to have different opinions and to be who you are.
What major learnings would you point out from your experience that have shaped you as a leader?
- Don’t be afraid to look at your own mistakes, learn from them and don’t be afraid to share
- Stay in the background and let your employees shine – everyone will know what you do anyway
- Listen, outsource, and trust your employees
- Be aware of not getting too personal invested in your work
What is your biggest source for inspiration right now?
I’m working for the first time in a big organization, where all departments are gathered in one. I learn every day from my colleagues in the different fields of journalism, analysis, marketing, and customer experience. I try to learn and understand, simultaneously trying to spread small KP methods around the house.
What would be an example of a learning or an experience from your time at Kaospilot that has been important to you?
Our process semester really made a big impact on me. I got to experince how I could use my understanding of relations, and I got the tools and methods for how to use it in organizations.
What is a piece of advice that you would like to give future Kaospilot graduates?
Trust in yourself that you have something that gives value. You can make an impact! Be humble, you still have a lot to learn, don’t be afraid to ask – and get a mentor you find inspiring.
