Ole Bentzen was up until 1988 part of the top management as a young CEO in the supermarket chain Irma. He then became CEO for Thiele, one of Denmark’s largest chains of opticians. Here he developed a management model “the nine squares” that among other things have been inspired by his many business trips to China and the story of the magic turtle Lo Shu, who has nine squares on its back.
The nine squares on the tortoiseshell is part of a whole. It is “the magic square” that gives peace, direction and results. This very combination has according to Ole Bentzen provided inspiration for why and how you get clients, employees and know-how to perform as a unit.
He has written a personal management book on the topic, and also has had the time take a patent on something totally different. Ole Bentzen believes that we need to be better at using senior citizens on the job market and he spearheads the idea himself. Being older should be viewed as strength instead of weakness.
Ole Bentzen is a sought after speaker and workshop teacher by companies, also in China, where it all started and where the inspiration for the nine squares came from.
