THE NORDIC TWIST
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.
