Please introduce yourself

My name is Sine. I am born and raised 15 km north of Aarhus.

While studying at Kaospilot I fell in love with a pizza baker at Mackies Pizza. Today we are married and live together in Copenhagen with our two wonderful kids Harry and Carla – and my sister (also Kaospilot) and her family.

 

Which team and when did you graduate?

Team 5 and I graduated in 2000.

 

 What have you been doing since you graduated as a Kaospilot?

The most of my career I have been working with complex societal issues. Primarily in the social sphere and often across civil society and the private and public sector. For 8 years as a partner in the innovation – and strategy firm Bindslev Next Step.

Today I am the director of The Bikuben Foundation. We have three missions:

1) Stop homelessness among young people in Denmark

2) Ensure that all young people placed in need/foster care get the support they need in the transition to adulthood

3) Empower the 45,000 young people in Denmark who are without jobs and education in finding their way in life. Our ambition is to create system change – and innovation within these missions so that we create lasting improvement for vulnerable young people.

 

What is important for you in your job?

It is important to collaborate across sectors and involve the young people and the experiences they have in the encounter with the system.

It is also crucial to be courageous, patient and risk-taking in order to succeed in creating lasting societal improvements.

 

What major learnings would you point out from your experience that have shaped you as a leader? 

To develop and launch the Home for All Alliance, which works to stop homelessness, has taught me to keep fighting for what I believe in. Even when it gets difficult. It has taught me how crucial it is “to put your hand on the hob” and move out of your own comfort zone to make things happen. And last but not least, it has taught me how important it is to be able to put into words the future we want to create.

 

What is your biggest source for inspiration right now?

My biggest inspiration comes from involving actors across sectors and from the young people themselves. But also from experimenting and trying out new solutions to learn and then adjust.

 

What would would be an example of a learning or an experience from your time at Kaospilot that has been important to you?

I learned a lot from The KaosPilots. I think one of the most important things is the mindset. The belief that we can create change in the society we are part of and to act ourselves. I also learned a lot about leading processes that have been valuable in my working life. And my two coaches René Bach and Henrik Nitschke have had a great impact on my development – in a very good way 😉

 

What is a piece of advice that you would like to give future Kaospilot graduates?

Be proud of your education and that you have chosen an alternative path. Trust that there is so much need, for what you learn at Kaospilot.
