We all remember some of these decisive moments, like hearing for the first time about the possibility of making free phone calls on a service called Skype. Or being able to share videos with everyone on YouTube. Or seeing prototypes of self-driving, or even flying cars, humanoid robots, or hearing Google assistant make a phone call to book an appointment at the hairdresser.

On The Move

On the Move er en interessant og rettidig bog om relevansen af Nordisk Ledelse i en evigt forandrende, hastigt bevægende og intens forretningsverden. Bogen beskriver, hvad Nordisk Ledelse er og hvordan denne ledelsesform kan inspirere og implementeres også i andre dele af verden. Gennem interviews med mere end 50 udenlands bosatte, men nordisk fødte ledere, fortæller forfatteren Pernille Hippe Brun, Strategisk rådgiver indenfor ledelse og organisationskultur, historien om de udfordringer, sejre og faldgruber man kan opleve, når man drager udenlands for at lede under fremmede himmelstrøg. Bogen er fyldt med gode råd, personlige anekdoter og indsigter fra moderne ledelsesteori samt veletablerede nordiske praksis-eksempler på, hvordan en nordisk ledelsesstil kan implementeres, tilpasses og justeres, således at den kan komme internationalt til gavn og inspirere morgendagens ledere - hvad end de er af nordisk ophav eller ej. Pernille Hippe Brun er strategisk ledelses- og organisationskonsulent med erfaring fra opbygning og ledelse af egen konsulentvirksomhed samt mange års rådgivning af ledere fra både det nordiske kontinent samt USA, Kenya og Kina.

The Conscious Effect

The Conscious Effect focuses on reconnecting leaders with both their people and themselves. It awakens the awesome potential in organizations through an emotionally intelligent, people-first approach, which places employee and leadership wellbeing at its heart, and helps leaders to become more consciously aware of what’s going on within and around them. If leaders take better care of themselves and their people, they will run more socially responsible businesses that can leverage the full potential of their employees. The book weaves together practical knowledge of behavioural science so that leaders understand what to do and why it works.

The Dynamic Workplace

The complexity and dynamism of organizations make them difficult to understand and manage. This book presents the workings and designs of organizations and identifies the types of problems encountered by organizational workers. Allcorn provides an essential focus on dynamic workplace theory, questioning the current and future value of today's bureaucratic, hierarchic organizational structure. Allcorn advocates a shared theoretical perspective that is clear and comprehensive. His theory explains organizational life, encompassing four types of work experience: chaotic, bureaucratic, charismatic, and balanced. He proposes an organizational design that eschews positions of authority and power and eliminates severe, often hindering bureaucracy. Clear and comprehensible without being simplistic, the book offers insights into how organizations actually function and proposes ways to intervene when organizations grow stale, become self-defeating in their missions, or develop into hostile environments for their employees. The insights and ideas presented here are of considerable and enduring importance to corporate trainers, consultants, group process experts, governmental agencies and entities, executives at all levels, academics, and students of organizational life and its various processes.
