"What is great is not to be this or that, but to be oneself, and that any human being can be if he wants to."
Søren Kierkegaard
Philosopher

Kierkegaard and leadership?

What are fundamental values in your leadership? What does it mean for you to step into a leader position? What calls you to act and why? How is your leadership developing?

The natural paradigm in modern society, whether we are leaders or not, is based on linear thinking and a systematic working approach. If we do A, B happens, which results in C. It is efficient in the short run, and can be appropriate in a context lacking structure and overview.

However, in order to ensure the greatest possible human well-being, and thus a more sustainable society and labor market, it is necessary to be true to oneself. This requires an awareness of what I as an individual represent and which values underlie my actions. Moreover, realizing that I, as a leader, also have some human limitations, which I dare to stand by, and therefore reach out to my employees and ask for help, when I fall short.

This is where Kierkegaard's becomes relevant. If any, he was one who understood the importance of having the courage to take "himself" seriously. He dared to step up as exactly the person he was, with the strengths and limitations that are part of being human.

"Anyone who does not know his own basic tone cannot lead an entire orchestra." - Kirstine Andersen, Kierkegaard and leadership, Frydenlund.

If you choose to look at yourself and your personal leadership, then Kierkegaard by Nature gives you the opportunity of facilitated courses, focusing on you as a human being, what you would like to represent in your leadership and how you in the best possible way convey this to your relations naturally.

All courses are tailor made to suit the individual manager or organization as not two individuals or organizations are alike.

In 2018 we have facilitated courses for, amongst others, Ørsted, Novo Nordisk, IKEA, Rudersdal municipality, Maersk, alongside a number of open courses at home and abroad.
