With extensive expertise in cross-border and intercultural HR and recruiting, our focus has naturally developed toward promoting Nordic Leadership values in everything we do. And Nordic leaders are in international demand for a reason.
The principles of Nordic Leadership, rooted in values of trust, open communication, flat hierarchies, equality, diversity, and work-life balance, have been proven to drive employee satisfaction and effectiveness, as well as create a sustainable competitive advantage for organizations across countries and regions.
Why are we doing it?
We know from experience and research that leadership development leads to sustained success. Especially Nordic Leadership can have a positive impact on employee satisfaction and effectiveness.
Leadership development is how companies help their talents and existing leaders evolve into the leaders they need for tomorrow. Also, it’s a fantastic and sustainable way for organizations to gain a competitive advantage in their industry.
Through the leadership recruitments that we do for your clients every day, we know the leadership challenges they face and the changes they would like to bring forward.
Not only would we like to support and help our clients with these things, but we are also uniquely equipped to do so – based on the wide range of experience our partners and consultants bring to the table.
What exactly are we doing?
Generally speaking: we assess people, culture, and leadership and provide advice, coaching, and mentoring – because developing skills for an internationally demanding leadership position can be overwhelming without the right support.
Tomorrow’s leaders must learn today how to hold their employees accountable without micromanaging, and how to take responsibility for their own actions. The two are closely linked and the latter helps immensely with the former. Leadership and corporate culture are tightly interwoven, too. Both aspects influence each other and contribute significantly to the success of a company.
Part of our DNA is Nordic Leadership. It’s based on trust and open communication, flat hierarchies, equality and diversity as well as work-life balance – all of which hugely impact management style, company culture, well-being, and performance.
We help you to:
- focus on building a healthy corporate culture
- change and adapt leadership styles
- welcome, respond to, and handle change
- assess, understand, and value the well-being of the team
- develop your team personally as well as professionally
- build ownership in teams
- take measures to increase team retention
- prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion
After all, it’s one of the most essential jobs of a leader to continuously work on their leadership skills – for themselves, their teams, and their company.
