How a near-death experience kickstarted his journey into wisdom & business

Combining his deep personal experiences with hands-on business knowledge, leaders are inspired by the wisdom that Jakob has to offer.


Today Jakob Møller Beck helps leaders create environments of deep purpose and collaboration, but as a young man he had a very dramatic experience.


On a trip to Costa Rica he was mugged, and stabbed in the gut. Jakob only survived because the attack happened close to a hospital. Getting back to a decent life quality took many years. Jakob still has pain many days and must manage a 35% degree of invalidity in form of a limp on his left leg. However, Jakob shares with me that while it demands a lot of him, he doesn’t consider it a tragedy. On the contrary, Jakob is grateful for the things he has learnt in the aftermath. It has changed the course of his life in positive ways and helped him go deep into psychology, healing, and spirituality leading to a profound sense of freedom.


Talking to Jakob we were delighted to see how wise, grounded, kind and present he is. You can feel his heart, even over Zoom. But Jakob is not merely a nice guy with a big heart. As a consultant and coach he works with leaders to improve their businesses. Jakob is the founder of a small consultancy called MøllerBeck and has worked as a consultant, facilitator and coach for 10 years supporting leaders with a range of subjects, from enabling governance structures and employing a lean mindset to building trusting cultures, and leading from a purpose driven strategy.


Combining his deep personal experiences with hands-on business knowledge, leaders are inspired by the wisdom that Jakob has to offer, and they want it for their businesses.
