Delegera is a delegation/ project management app developed by me in collaboration with, lawyers for lawyers. Because email is a dead end. 

Publications & researchOriginal solutions, based on two decades of lawyer-specific research, consulting, and training.

I triangulate by drawing upon my own research, academic research, deep dialogue with the greatest leaders in the legal sectors, and by collaborating with terrifically agile entrepreneurs – I bring new solutions to age-old hard problems in law firms, such as stress and burnout, leadership, and diversity and inclusion. 

Jens have helped enhancing performance and well-being in the legal sector for the past 17 years.

Here are the most common problems Jens often helps law firms with.


Try 21st psychometrics

Based on my lawyer-specific research, I have developed a simple to use – but powerful – psychometric test that accurately identifies which candidate is at high risk for stress and burnout.


A new best practice for stress management

The traditional approach of providing shallow stress management interventions for the entire organization simply does not work. Identify the 15% that really need help and focus on them!

Legal leadership

Leadership training that WORKS

Training in legal leadership has been notoriously difficult, with shallow results. My approach is based on years of training, leading to the development on a lean, precise, engaging protocol for legal leadership.

Diversity & inclusion

A different approach

By focusing on traits instead of demographics, law firms can effectively support female and minorities instead of treating them differently.
