Methodology: Analysis of literature (theory) and experience-based information - ie not empirical.
Abstract/Result/conclusion:The concept of SHEconomy was introduced to the public some ten years ago as a phenomenon developed initially by and in the Nordic Countries. There has been progress towards the SHEconomy movement, overall. But there is still much more to do. Now is the time to review, reflect, rethink and redouble efforts. This paper aims to review relevant writings and developments in order to provide a review and reflection on the status of the SHEconomy movement after ten years in the making.

Category:
Higher Education Quarterly. Publishes international articles concerned with policy, strategic management and ideas in higher education.
Keywords: Academic leadership style, leadership, student attainment
Methodology:The survey used in the UK 2018 study (https://tinyurl.com/y836mly6)was used with only minor modifications in this second study in Norway. It was administered in English on the basis that the level of English in Norway is extremely high with the country, in 2016, having the fourth highest non-native grasp of English in the world as measured by the English Proficiency Index (EPI) from global language training company Education First (EF) (Cremer, 2016).The survey, is in two parts with the 38 questions in the first part inviting comments on the academic style of leadership in their university and how this was perceived by students (whether inclusive or not) and the second part, with questions 39-50, posing questions as to students’ perceptions of their personal performance (‘Factor 1’), motivation (Factor 2) and well-being (‘Factor 3’). The questions in the first part were designed to measure the extent to which students perceived the academic leadership in their university to be inclusive with elements of (i) Transformational leadership (with four Tf competencies reflected in the questions) or Servant Leadership (with 11 SL competencies reflected) and the object of the survey was to measure the extent to which there was an association between the two parts of the survey as there had been in the students survey responses in the UK. Academic leadership style and its associations with student attainment in Norway and the UK.
Abstract/Result/conclusion:The correlations between Norway and UK-based studies suggests that, where HE is concerned, academic leadership behaviours are a significant and overlooked factor in student performance, motivation and mental well-being. As a result, future research could usefully focus on the reactions of students across a range of universities, ages, geographies, subjects and levels of study in order to gauge the extent to which results may be influenced by age, geography and level and subject of study. Future research could also examine the extent to which the enhancements to students’ performance, motivation and mental well-being associated with the perceived presence of inclusivity in academic leadership may be mirrored by that of academic and administrative employees in HE, a topic on which to date there has been no research. Moreover, the strength of the combined Norwegian and UK data suggests that HE leadership policies should reflect the important associations reported here, encouraging a move from Transactional to IL.

Category:

Keywords: Confidence, gender, women’s economic empowerment (WEE).
Methodology: Ipsos WEE studies conducted in the past five years: A Multi-Dimensional Framework for WEE, a litterature reviewand areviewed research.
Abstract/Result/conclusion:This study focused on women and confidence in the SHEconomy for both developed and developing nations. First, we examined literature on women in leadership roles mainly related to the workplace in companies in industrialized nations. The review included constructs of confidence, the gender confidence gap, the imposter phenomenon, self-perception and confidence, self-esteem, perfectionism, risk taking, and self-efficacy related to women business leaders. New propositions are offered based upon this research. Next, we reviewed research on women, confidence, and economic empowerment in developing nations, and generated additional new propositions based upon the findings. Further, we create the 360 Degree SHEconomy Confidence Model of Women’s Leadership and Economic Empowerment in Developed and Developing Nations. Our paper also provides a conclusion with managerial and political implications for business and society and includes recommendations to guide future research on the impact of enhancing women’s confidence and economic empowerment. These issues have implications for gender equality which can lead to increasing economic growth of nations, and providing economic, social, health and well-being benefits at the individual, household, and community levels for humankind.

Category: 
Conference paper.Effective Design Leadership:The Academy for Design Innovation Management Conference Den 19–21 June 2019. Contribution ID: 239.
Keywords: Design Thinking, Design Diversity, Customer Diversity, Customer Centricity, Leadership style, inclusive leadership, Strategic agility
Methodology:This paper picks up some of the issues posed in our previous paper; “Successfully marketing for diverse stakeholders: the organisational challenge”,by asking what kind of internal organisational leadership can best facilitate a customer-centric approach. There is currently no research on this question and the research takes a deductive approach in undertaking 12 qualitative, in-depth interviews with four organisations in Norway, two of which are design agencies (one specialist in software and one in human innovation) and two Big Four organisations. The results suggest a strong link between the presence of Inclusive Leadership and Customer Centricity, mediated by a Diversity Mindset and large diversity density in the organisation. This leads to the following model presented in the paper:
Keywords: Design Thinking, Design Mindset, Diversity density, Customer Centricity, Leadership style, inclusive leadership, Strategic agility
Abstract: 
Locate: Although theory acknowledges the importance of design thinking and customer centricity (CC), there is a failure to consider how the nature and style of internal leadership may facilitate this.
Focus: This is a serious gap. In order to better understand the place of leadership style, this paper reports on qualitative research conducted in four design, software and consultancy businesses in Norway.
Report: The results showed a consistent association between inclusive leadership on the one hand and strategic agility (SA), CC and DT on the other.
Argue: This empirical work begins to fill a gap in our understanding of the associations between leadership style, CC, design thinking and SA. Although a relatively small-scale study, it demonstrates strong associations between inclusive leadership and CC, DT and SA. These initial findings signal the need to extend the work both geographically and quantitatively with the development of a survey instrument.
Conclusion:There has been a paucity of information concerning the leadership style best suited to facilitating CC but the evidence presented here suggests that IL may be a powerful tool. The evidence presented here from four organisations based in the same country showed that the two independent design agencies in the sample of four organisations had stronger evidence of IL than the two comparator consultancies, one with had design agencies under its wing. Both design agencies demonstrated an organisational mindset that encouraged growth and diversity as well as a focus on people, teamworking, trust and individual responsibility and empathy, all elements that assist in developing CC externally. In terms of research limitations, the research was focused exclusively on Norwegian organisations and duplication of the research in one or more additional countries would test the relevance of the findings to other geographies.

Category:
Conference paper.Effective Design Leadership:The Academy for Design Innovation Management Conference Den 19–21 June 2019. Contribution ID: 239.
Keywords: Marketing diversity, outside-in, organisations, nationality, gender
Methodology: A convenience sample of 560 postgraduate Business students from six countries, (see Table 6 in our article) studying at various universities were asked to take part in a short exercise. They were asked quite simply to ‘draw a person’ and give the person a name and were told that the quality of their drawing was unimportant and that there was no correct or incorrect response to this test. The participants were not at any stage briefed on the purpose of the study which was to establish the extent to which people across different national groups drew people of their own gender. The researchers then used the t-test to see whether there were significant differences in the extent to which men and women from different countries drew men and women. Having collected their responses, researchers documented the incidence of same-sex depictions with the categorisation of responses (as same, opposite sex or neutral) achieved by noting the presence or absence of distinguishing features in the drawing (e.g. a beard or moustache, pointing to a male) or a name.
Abstract/Result:
Locate: Although theory acknowledges the need for brands to reflect consumer needs there is a failure to describe how Resource-based people elements can be optimised for a market-oriented approach.
Focus: In order to better understand the people resource can impact brand and marketing orientation, the focus is placed here on design, an activity supporting the brand, this paper reports on a comparison of men and women’s design creations.
Report: The ‘Draw a Person’ tests was administered to 481 adults in six countries with results showing a statistically significant tendency for men and women to depict people of their own gender, a tendency elevated for male respondents, particularly those from Germany, Norway and China.
Argue: These results illustrate an interactionist (as against universalist) tendency in the creation/ resourcing of designs which, taken with a tendency to produce same-gender images, highlights the difficulties in resourcing an organisation to achieve Marketing Orientation.
Conclusion: Ultimately, the achievement of Market Orientation, resting as it does on the reactions of consumers to productions, will rest on breaking down demarcations between the Marketing and other functions, as envisaged by Drucker (Mulyanegara, 2010) so that the organisation can be optimally resourced to satisfy the preferences of the external target market.

Keys to Women’s Confidence in the SHEconomy: A 360 Degree View and Confidence Domains Framework of Women’s Leadership & Economic Empowerment .
Category: Conference paper. POC: Ipsos, US 
Keywords: Confidence, SHEconomy, gender
Methodology: Having remarkable confidence, courage, and outrage helped inspire the global phenomenon and success of the #MeToo and TIME’S Up™ movements in the U.S. which gained momentum in 2018 by creating awareness and sparking change in industries and in countries around the world. As Time Magazineput it, “The groundbreaking anti-sexual assault and women’s empowerment movements #MeToo and Time’s Up upended the public conversation about women’s issues around the world, and elevated the global consciousness surrounding the obstacles women encounter in their daily lives, both personal and professional” (Langone, 2018). In 2018, confidence and a strong motivation to make changes in U.S. politics and address inequities in American society helped propel a record number of 117 women to become members of the U.S. Congress – a major increase from 89 women elected in 2016 (Zhou, 2019). Although over 56% of U.S. college graduates are women, there is still a wage gap with women making 80 cents for every dollar earned by a man (Napolitano, 2018).  Globally, according to the World Economic Forum, “women around the world actually work morethan men in total (including both paid and unpaid work)…(but) earn one quarter less,…hold only one quarter of executive positions in the private sector, and occupy less than one quarter of all seats in national parliaments” (Sadasivam, 2017). There is a plethora of women with equal talent and qualifications to men, yet progress is stalled for women leaders around the world.  According to the Women in the Workplace 2018 study in the U.S. by McKinsey & Company and Leanin.org, “only about 1 in 5 C-suite leaders is a woman, and only 1 in 25 is a woman of color” (McKinsey & Company, 2018). A Newsweek article aptly noted that “Even women with stellar credentials often lack the confidence to put themselves forward, while men with far inferior qualifications show no such hesitation, according to research across a broad range of fields”(Bennetts, 2012).   
Recently, there has been media attention not just about the gender gap in economic and political areas but also about ‘the confidence gap” which attributes women’ lower confidence levels than men as a key reason for a lack of women in top leadership roles in business, organizations and politics. These ideas have been popularized in books such as Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead(2013) and Katty Kay and Claire Shipman’s The Confidence Code (2014a), as well in a seminal article “The Confidence Gap” in The Atlantic (Kay and Shipman, 2014b). According to (Slaughter, 2013). “Sandberg’s advice to young women to be more ambitious…is framed … in … encouraging terms - “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” - addressing the self-doubt that still holds many women back”.  Kay and Shipman (2014a, 2014b) identified research indicating that women compared to men are less confident in expectations of being promoted, doing well on tests, and general estimates of their abilities, and that this lack of confidence leads to inaction.What is the cause of this gender confidence disparity? The answer falls somewhere between nature and nurture with societal norms.  Our current study reviews research on fundamental psychological, cultural, and situational factors in the SHEconomy® that impact women’s confidence, leadership roles, and economic empowerment in industrialized and developing countries.   [See in this special Ipsos’ issue on the 2019 International Women’s Day a separate article“The SHEconomy® is Here!”]    

An Ipsos survey of over 17,000 people in 22 countries on the “Changing Role of Women” found that “the majority of people around the world agree that things would be better if more women held positions of responsibility in government and companies (with an increase from 53% in 2014 to 57% in 2016) (Emes, 2018). In order to achieve this bold, far-reaching goal, much work needs to be done.

Keywords: Leadership, organisation, CDR. 
Methodology: Analysis of literature (theory) and experience-based information - ie not empirical.
Abstract/Result/conclusion:CDRis about how an entire corporate culture changes to adapt to a new culture of diversity, for diverse sustainability. It's about how companies take their female talent and customers seriously by focusing on what women actually want and need in 2019, not on assumptions and stereotypical perceptions of what women want.Like CSR, CDRis voluntary, something businesses do because they want it and see the value of it, not because it is imposed on them through laws and regulations. Our hope is that CDR will be seen as a new way of looking and sustainable economic growth for business trying to balance organizational performance across profits, people, and planet.

Abstract/Result/conclusion: (Publisert på dansk og engelsk):The financial crisis has spoken and has shown that the number of women in corporate management has an important effect on share prices. Therefore, the financial crisis leads to a cultural revolution that now favors female leaders, according to professor Michel Ferrary. Other European and American researchers who have followed the financial crisis closely agree, pointing to the importance of diversity in leadership. Several management experts are now asking if it is women who must save capitalism.

Resultater/konklusjon: Fra forbrukerismens barndom er produkter som i økende grad brukes av begge kjønn blitt utviklet og designet av menn, og testet på mannlige klienter/ pasienter. Det har vært en sosial og kommersiell enighet om at menn og kvinner i forbrukersammenheng var og er det samme. Det var ingen grunn til å komplisere ting med involvering av "det svake kjønn" i forskning, design og produktutvikling. I noen tilfeller viste kjønnsubalansen seg direkte farlig, i andre bare som en kommersiell blindvei, sett i lys av det faktum at kvinnelige kunder globalt tar 80% av alle kjøpsbeslutninger for hjemmet. Forskningsmastodonter som Fraunhofer og Stanford University - og ikke minst EU, har de siste årene sagt det tydelig: Forskning i vitenskap, medisin/ helse, teknologi og miljø gir ingen mening uten en grunnleggende forståelse av at "kundene" består av to kjønn.

ISBN: 9788245015768
«SHEconomy, din, min og vår business handler om det forretningspotensialet som ligger i kvinnelig lederskap, og om å ta kvinnene på alvor som forbrukere og en politisk maktfaktor.
Boken viser hvordan kvinnene stemmer og bestemmer og hvordan man best kan utnytte dette til å bedre konkurranseevnen og lønnsomheten samt håndtere viktige samfunnsutfordringer. Boken peker på at kvinner er big business. De som innser det, kan virkelig flytte markedsandeler, vinne stemmer, skape verdier og styrke bunnlinjen. Kvinners voksende økonomiske og politiske makt kommer til å innovere måten vi tenker forretninger, produkter og politikk på. Mens vi i det forrige århundret opplevde hvilken forandring det var for både staten, markedet og samfunnet at kvinnene kom ut på arbeidsmarkedet, vil vi i det neste århundret være vitne til resultatet av det neste skrittet i denne utviklingen, nemlig hva det betyr når kvinnene blir likeverdige medspillere på maktens og pengenes arena.
Derfor er SHEconomy din, min og vår business!».

Tittel: Inclusive Leadership
Kategori: Fagbok/ledelsesbok
Forfattere: Gloria Moss, Professor of Management and Marketing, Buckinghamshire New University, UK; PhD, FCIPD, Benja Stig Fagerland Assistant Professor, School of Business, Institute of Business, Strategy and Political Sciences University of South-Eastern Norway and Ceri Sims Chartered Psychologist and Senior Lecture at Buckinghamshire New University, UK. PhD, CPsychol. MISCP SGCP 
Forlag: Tayler & Francis Group (May 2019)
ISBN: 978-1-138-09057-6 
Teori/begreper: This book breaks important new ground in describing the enhancements in performance, motivation and mental well-being that Inclusive Leadership brings to organisations. Illustrating these benefits through theory and practical examples, the book also contrasts this style with Command and Control or 'Transactional' leadership, a style that still holds sway in many organisations, with leaders focused on mistakes rather than progress.
Inclusive Leadership will transport you through time and geography - from the UK, US, and Australia to France and Norway - showing how much more nurturing an environment Inclusive Leadership provides than Transactional leadership. 
The book describe how Inclusive Leadership complements a competitive strategy emphasising innovation. The chapters also cover education and the associations between Inclusive Leadership and enhanced undergraduate student performance, motivation and engagement both in Norway and in the UK. With a unique combination of both theoretical and practical perspectives, this book is a useful tool for practitioners in the corporate world; business, management and leadership students; and both emerging and established leaders.
Abstract We looked at the impact of academic leadership style on university students’ outcomes in a UK university. The research team consisting of Gloria Moss, Dr Ceri Sims and Benja Stig Fagerland, who turn the spotlight on Norway, a country with similar and also dissimilar experiences of higher education (HE). What the two countries have in common is a similar proportion of graduates in the population – Norway at 34% and the UK at 32% (2007)
Conclusion:The correlations between Norway and UK-based studies suggests that, where Higher Education is concerned, academic leadership behaviours are a significant and overlooked factor in student performance, motivation and mental well-being. As a result, future research could usefully focus on the reactions of students across a range of universities, ages, geographies, subjects and levels of study in order to gauge the extent to which results may be influenced by age, geography and level and subject of study. 
Future research could also examine the extent to which the enhancements to students’ performance, motivation and mental well-being associated with the perceived presence of inclusivity in academic leadership may be mirrored by that of academic and administrative employees in HE, a topic on which to date there has been no research. In terms of HR and leadership policies in HE, both in Norway and in the UK, these may wish to reflect the important associations reported here between inclusivity in academic leadership and enhancements to student performance, motivation and mental well-being.

Resultater/konklusjon: Norske bedrifter har bruk for noe radikalt, for virkelig å sette gang i hjulene, ideene og inspirasjonen. Kvinnelige kunder kan bli nettopp den katalysator for forandring som næringslivet etterlyser og jakter på. Det handler om å kaste et helt nytt blikk på produktene, og måten å fortelle historier og drive virksomhet på. Den prisme som heter kvinner kan gi et massivt push i den rette retningen. Dette fordi kvinner ser på produktene med andre øyne. Fordi de skeptisk legger armene i kors og spør «hva skal jeg egentlig bruke det til?» Og, fordi det dermed tvinger de interne teamene til å tenke, snu den eksisterende produktportefølje på hodet og si «hun har rett. Hva er det egentlig, vår dings nummer 20 skal brukes til i det livet hun lever?» Det setter gang i debatten. Det setter gang i utviklingen, og det setter gang i de nye ideene. Det er det, som Norge har bruk for.

Abstract: Otte nordboere mellem 31 og 65 år sætter spørgsmål ved, at Norden hører blandt de rigeste lande i verden. Hvor er lykken i det?Fra Finland beretter genforsker Leena Peltonen-Palotie, at Nordens isolerede befolkninger kan blive fundament for fremtidens niche inden for forebyggelse af sygdom. Fra Åland peger miljøforkæmperen Gunda Åbonde-Wickström på, at Nordens miljøudspil er 25 år gammelt og stadig savner strategi og vision. I Sverige funderer poeten Marcus Birro over Lykkelige Norden med sin sakrale skandinaviske solidaritet. Den danske forfatter Leonora Christina Skov raser over et kvælende, socialt sikkerhedsnet. I Norge kritiserer Benja Stig Fagerland, at nordiske familier desperat forsøger at finde balancen mellem arbejde og privatliv i en højeffektiv hverdag. Den færøske økonom Hermann Oskarsson ser beskrivelser af "den nordiske model" som en vandet omgang ingenting. Forfatteren Andri Snær Magnason på Island spørger, hvilke mål bør man have, når det ser ud, som om de fleste allerede er nået? Og endelig rapporterer erhvervsjournalisten Erik Holmsgaard fra et Grønland, hvor grønlænderne kæmper for selvstændigheden, mens resten af Norden indretter luksusbadeværelser.

Titel: «Bli kvitt møtehelvetet«

Er møter noe av det kjedeligste du vet om? Da er du ikke alene. Likevel er møter et av de aller beste verktøyene vi har for å få ting til å skje på jobben, derfor kan de ikke unngås. I hvert fall ikke helt. Boken 3-minuttersmetoden: Bli kvitt møtehelvetet har som ambisjon å vise deg hvordan du selv kan ta grep, slik at du blir kvitt en del av møtehelvetet i jobbhverdagen.  Boken ble bokstavelig talt laget på under én uke. Noen vil kalle det galskap, men forfatterne ville teste seg selv og se hva de klarte å få til under ekstremt press. Men selv ikke to overmodige kvinner i sin tredje beste alder klarer å gjøre alt alene på så kort tid. Derfor ble boken til takket være #crowdwriting. 52 av Norges klokeste hoder beæret Ine Thereze Gransæter og Ann Elin Schüssel med å skrive hver sin del. Samlet sett finner du derfor over 1000 års møteerfaring mellom to permer i denne boken.

Kommentarer: Under vises et lite utvalg av kommentarer jeg har gjort de siste 20 årene:

1.     Protest-fredag arrangerer «grønn fredag». VG25. november 2016
2.    Tenk om Sørlandet ble best på likestilling. Bergens Tidende 12. desember 2015
3.     Norge har fremdeles for få kvinner i lederjobber.Bergens Tidende 8. mars 2015
4.    Hun som ikke liker.Aftenposten 15. Mars 2014. - Den sterke mannen er ikke lederidealet. Den lekne kvinnen er den nye sterke mannen: “Jeg vil ikke «like» eller heie bare for å gjøre det. Jeg vil være hun bannende dansken som sitter i sofaen med en Tuborg og gir tommelen opp til mangfoldet og den mangfoldige kvinne og kvinnestemme. Jeg sier ja til relevant, fortjent og ærlig fremsnakking og nei til ukritisk og blind skryt og like-kultur. Det siste er ingen tjent med. Jeg synes ofte at fremsnakkingsbegrepet brukes til å dempe viktig og nødvendig debatt. Det er bra å gi folk «kred» når de fortjener det, men hvis pendelen svinger for langt i den andre retningen, så kan vi jo ikke ha meningsutvekslinger og kritisk debatt. Da stopper utviklingen og læringen opp.”
