Kristian Kahrs, kommunikator

Kristian Kahrs. Foto: Wesley ChannellOfte kan det være vanskelig å holde hodet kaldt når det stormer. Når medier krever lederens avgang og svar på vanskelige spørsmål, er det ikke alltid like lett å svare. Skal lederen legge seg flat, eller skal han eller hun gå til motangrep?

Gjennom drøye to år i politikken i det lille partiet Demokratene i Norge har jeg fått god erfaring i å håndtere kriser. Dette har jeg skrevet noe om i LinkedIn artikkelen En krise er ikke en krise, og etter at jeg forlot politikken 20. september 2017 skrev jeg også oppsummeringen To år med krisekommunikasjon.

Likevel dreier det seg ikke kun om kriser når jeg hjelper bedrifter operativt. Jeg hjelper gjerne de som trenger det med hjelp til strategisk kommunikasjon, og jeg kan skrive og forbedre presentasjoner på norsk eller engelsk Jeg er også en mann som ledere kan spille ball med for å være mer effektive i sin kommunikasjon og få frem sitt budskap til kunder og samarbeidspartnere.

Siden jeg også har solid erfaring med journalistikk og i politikk, er jeg godt posisjonert til å vite hva som kan og bør sies i til journalister. Et lite tips: Be alltid om sitatsjekk 🙂

Jeg har også min engelske nettside på SorrySerbia.com. For de som er interessert i mer biografisk informasjon, har jeg laget en fyldig og klikkbar CV

  1. Hei Kristian

    Du må skaffe deg noen dugelige kollegaer i resten av landets fylker. Tiden er overmoden.

    Mvh

  2. Du kan jo lage en avdelding av Sverigedemokratene. Eller du kan blåse liv i Nasjonal Samling.
    Ditt “valgprogram” låter rasistisk og diskriminerende.

  3. Norway has a history with Serbia. This wouldn’t be the first time a Norwegian who came in Serbia with a picture of “bad Serbs”, only to realize the truth is just the opposite. I lost faith in the world, I don’t believe that the west will ever admit of the error they made. I don’t think there is a salvation for Serbia. But seeing that there are at least some individuals who are willing to come forward with the truth, gives me… I don’t know what. It gives me even more sadness, because I know this story, like many other, will be dismissed… I’m sorry you had PTSD episodes.

    • Thank you for your comment, Illusive, but I disagree with you that there is no salvation for Serbia. You have a lot going for you, a well educated workforce, and good working moral. The situation is tough at the moment, but when Europe breaks down, you will be in a better position because you are used to living with less money.

      My PDSD episodes do not prevent me but rather motivates me to fight on!

      • Hmmm I see the different reality than the one you described, but I agree that we are used to living with “less” money. If you refer to the fact that people with college degrees work in fields of manual labor because they can’t find jobs in their own fields, then I agree about the education. However our workforce and work ethics are horrible. It has been so for over a couple of centuries. A hundred years ago, Archibald Reis noted that, it was because Serbs worked under Ottomans for centuries and since all their labor was taken advantage of by the occupying overlords, Serbs developed a “knack” for working just enough to survive after the tyrants take their cut. That was a hundred years ago, after the first world war. He said that Serbs are still stuck in a mentality that they are working for someone else, and not their own country. Corrupt politicians (and overall corruption) that bow to the western ideals and orders certainly do contribute to the hopelessness of the situation.
        To me, Kosovo and Metohija is especially painful subject. Because the west is adamant to give (what is not theirs to give) to terrorist mafia. All over western world Serbia is portrayed as the bad guy, and that hurts even more when you’ve seen what Serbs have been through.
        But that’s just me I guess. I have been called a pessimist by the optimists before.

        Well at least some good came out of such ordeal. Not many would see it that way as you do. So it just goes to show that you are a real human, with empathy, and strength to push forward.
        PS: I’m sorry about my lack of faith in the world and life, as well as long needless paragraphs. Sometimes I let myself go on these subjects. I hope your book reaches those who can make the difference.

  4. Thanks a lot Kristian! Thanks for telling a truth and our side of story. God bless you!
