Working in the Nordics – a Cultural Perspective

  • Introduction to Nordic collaborations: Why is awareness of our values and the cultural perspective a key point when we want to collaborate and cooperate – and become more innovative.
  • ”Them and us” – knowledge, facts, myths and stereotypes in the Nordic countries. Short introduction to the relevant countries – with focus on the small but significant differences between us. What does Nordic organization- and leadership style look like compared to other countries? Incl. examples from other companies, expat views etc.
  • The Nordic brand and leadership style, e.g. innovation, respect for the individual, international perspective, teamwork, low power distance, empowerment, sharing ideas, anti-authority, equality, work life balance etc. Plus the Nordic downside = being so satisfied with ourselves …
  • Best pieces of advice, e.g. Be curious and clever: Keep an open mind but not an empty head. Use the differences – instead of turning them into obstacles. Our big chance here being the many shared values – and the differences to learn from. Don’t blame it all on the culture!
