Patricia Hirsch interviews Tine Gaihede, PCC. Tine shares for a great many years of her adult life, she lived from the belief that she was NOT afraid. Fear was not part of her life. At least not consciously. It wasn’t until she turned 40, that she experienced that she had been lying to herself, big time. Actually, she was so afraid that she had completely denied that emotion that she had developed a bunch of creative strategies to avoid any emotional pain at all. Tine knew the consequences of it, loneliness and being trapped in an emotional prison, but this was far better than actually facing the fear, apparently.

Today, fear is part of Tine's life, luckily, she knows it, feels it, sometimes she is even paralyzed by it. The power is that she recognizes fear at all levels: In her, in other people, in society, our lack of wanting to deal with it and the power it then has, it can start a war, initiate crises, break up marriages and get organizations to fall.

Tine Gaihede is one of the pioneers of professional coaching in Scandinavia. With a background as an economist from University of Copenhagen and an M.A from London City University, she used to work with the arts as a vehicle for economic and social growth in Europe back in the 90’s – initiated by the fall of the political iron curtain at the end of the 1980s.

Transitioning into coaching in 1999 Tine has run her own coaching business for 14 years, assisting global leaders in large, often complex organizations to set new agendas in their leadership and lives. Her clients are leaders who are driven by vision and confronted with the limits of fear – both their own and the organization’s.

Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, Tine was the 2012 president of the Danish Chapter of The ICF, focusing on creating new possibilities for professional coaches by establishing new alliances between professional coaches and the market.
