By assessing the current and preferred organizational culture of the fastest growing e-commerce startup in Switzerland, Larissa wrote her bachelor thesis on setting the basis for culture change and received her BSc of Arts, Sciences and Honors in International Business Management, a trinational study program.
Since then she worked in different startups and small businesses as organizational developer, developing the business, the organizational culture and the employer brand by working directly on processes, strategy and people development.
Since a change in organizational culture requires personal development, shifts in beliefs and habits, she sees great importance in working on a personal level taking into account body, mind and spirit. Thus, as a Yoga and meditation instructor she also introduced mindfulness meditation at her last employer.
She is convinced that the concept of work-life balance is outdated and based on a negative perception about work. She tries to apply for herself a work-life-integration playing with balance between everything in life: doing and being (not working and living), connecting with people and connecting with the self, using technology and connecting with nature, and so on.
Her background in business combined with her knowledge from being a Yoga teacher, as well as her many international experiences and her ease for languages build a skill and mindset that fits the future of work.
