"Always try to be humble. When you believe others act irrational, be wondering, not judgmental."
As a strategist you identify and answer clients' key value questions, helping them obtain and sustain competitiveness and growth in a market that changes faster now than ever. To succeed, we must leverage technology when shaping and answering these questions, which is what I do in my job. One project example could be to apply AI, automation, or emerging technologies to shift the client's business model to the new.
I am also a part of Accenture AI Norway, where we arrange community meetings and training focused on AI and machine learning. In addition, I get the opportunity to work with recruitment from my home university as well as arranging social events for my team.
I listen to "P3morgen" every morning, but apart from that, no day is alike!
On my current project, I could be doing project research, analyzing data using visualization tools, or creating a story in PowerPoint based on the message we want to send in an upcoming meeting. Or maybe I am onboarded on new, exciting projects for a new client. Besides any project, I could be holding or attending training within emerging technologies or planning the yearly Strategy ski trip to Hemsedal.
I believe work-life balance is important and appreciate that I have time to do the things I want outside of work. For example, I love going to a dance classes or meeting up with Accenture's "Revygruppe" that I am a part of - so much fun!

Make a strategy for yourself. Setting personal targets and letting them guide you in professional and personal decisions will make you both better and happier, which again will be visible and inspiring to others.
In addition, always try to be humble. When you believe others act irrational, be wondering, not judgmental. Everyone is just trying to do their best based on what makes sense to them.
