On the Move
is a timely book about Nordic Leadership and the relevance of this leadership approach in an ever-changing, fast-moving and intense business-world. The book tells the story of what Nordic Leadership is and how it can be applied even outside the Nordic Region.
The book is an outcome of a conversational journey of discovery, which led the author, Strategic Advisor within Leadership and Organizational Culture, Pernille Hippe Brun to interview more than fifty Nordic business leaders all of whom have worked internationally for a number of years. The questions Pernille posed were sparked by a desire to learn more about the triumphs, challenges, and pitfalls of leading in a foreign culture.
The book brings together personal anecdote, the stories and insights of interviewees, business literature, and examples from popular culture. It draws on these varied sources to explore the convergence between contemporary business theory and long-established Nordic practices, offering guidance that may benefit international leaders both today and in the future.

She has extensive experience of Nordic Leadership gained both in her native country and overseas, in advisory, educational, change, leadership and board roles.
