Working in the Danish tribe

Working with other cultures can be difficult but also highly beneficial if you know how. And cultural difference can have a huge impact in business and challenges our ideas about everything from leadership, decision making and team collaboration.

In a Danish working environment these “cultural shocks” are definitely visible and significant. Maybe even more so. In the social sciences it’s not a new thing that Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia are significantly culturally different from a lot of other places in the world. You can’t find a country with more general trust, less religiosity, a greater emphasis on equality but also a significant tendency to social reclusiveness and much more. But why are they so different and how do you crack the code of the Danish society?
