The Nordic values of trust, humility, creativity and a shared common vision are at the heart of everything we do at Rösslyng.
The Nordic leadership approach
Nordic countries are attracting considerable attention. One reason is because they consistently rank highly on global ratings in terms of wealth, productivity, digitalization, education, health, innovation, and happiness(1-5). Much of this success has been accredited to the Nordic leadership style.
Trust underpins everything
Leadership is participative through delegation of power
Leaders play down their authority and functioning more like a coach
Leaders set an inspiring yet realistic direction
Team cooperate and understand that every employee’s voice is important
The Nordic leadership style initiates more engagement and accountability and develops a breeding ground for creativity(6). Rösslyng brings this unique leadership style to the table.
“Nordic organizations are among the most agile and innovative in the world. Nordic leaders have excellent soft skills, enabling them to keep a finger on the pulse of the market and the people at the same time”
“Nordic Leadership” by the Nordic Council of Ministers, 2018
Central values of the Nordic working life
Research shows that this approach fosters a growth in performance, health and profitability(7).
“The Nordics are not waiting around to find out when the future begins. They are already leading the way”
