Nordic Leadership in China (the event is in Suzhou)

- The Edge of an Inclusive Leadership Style in a Chinese Context

The Nordic Leadership Style is characterized by being Nurturing, Open, Responsive, Direct, Inclusive and Committed - and has a lot to offer in a fast-paced, ever-changing and challenging working-environment, where we fight for innovation, self-motivated and -driven work-individuals, who are ready to challenge the status quo and yet able to deliver and perform when needed. This afternoon we discuss what the Nordic Leadership style is and has to offer, and what to take into consideration when applying it in a Chinese context. It is important to mix-and-match the approach to get the best from both worlds and to blend it into a style which attracts a broad Chinese workforce and avoid some of the pitfalls which may arise if we do not take cultural sensitivities into consideration. When mixed and matched well, we end up with a leadership style which is competitive, builds on the strengths and ideas from employees and ensures that teams work well together. This afternoon you get insight into the secret sauce of this blend from real life stories and theoretical inputs from Lotte Norgreen and Mr. Roy Ye esteemed guest-speakers with extensive experience from leading in China.

The Danish Chamber of Commerce (DCCC) has invited the members of FBCS to join this seminar.

    The journey from a small village in Northern Jutland in Denmark to a global company with main manufacturing activities in China has not been easy and it takes hard work to develop, organize and manage a business venture along with all of its risks.
