  • What characterizes Scandinavian business culture and leadership style?
  • What characterizes Scandinavian business culture and leadership style?
  • Do you merged employees need to know each other better?
  • Are your international collegaues puzzled by Scandinavian business culture?

I optimise efficiency in collaborations, onboarding, mergers and negotiations. I focus on cultural differnences and similaities – and how to make the best of them.

All the services I provide include generous helpings of expert knowledge, research, experience from other companies and Nordic humour.

Talks & Workshops:

When vikings – and values – clash

Lectures and workshops for companies and organisations working across national borders – that also want to cooperate. For 10 to 1000 participants. And customised to suit your everyday reality.

Why are Scandinavians so strange?

  • Why do your Nordic colleagues expect you to have an opinion on most subjects?
  • How can you collaborate closely and trust people you only know professionally?
  • Why is it OK to eat your lunch at the same canteen table as your boss?
  • Why can’t you jump the queue?
  • Why is attending the Christmas party part of your job description?

Business cultures, leadership and mangament style are closely connected to cultural values and habits and working or being a leader in Copenhagen, Cologne, Chicago or Chengdu is certainly not the same.

This course on collaborating with colleagues from all over the world will – with a Nordic perspectice – introduce you to: leadership and mangement styles, navigating the business culture, & dos & don’ts, habits and core values, everyday and professional life.
