Return of the Vikings
- Nordic Leadership in Times of Extreme Change
RETURN OF THE VIKINGS – NORDIC LEADERSHIP IN TIMES OF EXTREME CHANGE tells the story of the rich heritage of the Nordic peoples: as explorers, navigators, trendsetters, political and educational innovators. This provides deep roots, traced back to the Viking era and the nine noble virtues of Nordic mythology. And it still informs the way the Nordic peoples live and work today. The methods, values and leadership practices of the Vikings are woven into the DNA of international businesses founded in the Nordics, and exemplified by many Nordic practitioners who work in other countries or for non-Nordic organizations.
The inclusive, trusting, collaborative style of Nordic leadership offers an alternative way to negotiate through our current times of extreme change. What many of us are now experiencing online in distributed, fluid, networked communities, the Nordics have been practicing on land and sea for centuries. The Nordics are not waiting around to find out when the future begins. They are already leading the way (passage from the book).
Chris Shern and Henrik Jeberg offer an intriguing perspective on the Nordic societies, their leadership style and way of doing business. Their own stories are interwoven with those of a diverse range of interviewees, including business executives, politicians, writers, designers, athletes, military personnel and entrepreneurs.
