The Nordic House of Changes has three
interdependent parts, none of which can be ignored. Take out one element and the house - and the change process - will collapse.

The house is built bottom-up.

Alternate between leadership and management in a context-sensitive manner (leadership awareness).

Look inward before acting (self-awareness).

Involve and let others walk in your shoes (organizational awareness).

Self-awareness is the largest component of the Nordic House of Changes because the leader is the single most important 'tool' in Leading Change Management with a Nordic Twist. Lacking self-awareness, driving change will be very difficult no matter how many books you read, or how many TED Talks you watch.

Becoming self-aware is a journey. 

Acting on your self-awareness requires courage.

The spillover effect on your personal life is worth the effort.
