The Inner Leadership (in danish)

kr. 299,95

The book THE INNER LEADERSHIP creates, via a coherent chain of theories and models, a good overview of the empowerment processes and is therefore a good tool for everyone who works to increase the degree of self-management in business.

THE INNER LEADERSHIP contains a proposal for a new form of collaboration that meets both the increased demands for efficiency and the emotional side of being a person in development. The idea is that employees should be able to collaborate across professional groupings in the organization to solve the specific problems that they have in common.

The new units work self-managing and all are involved, which increases co-responsibility. This provides greater insight into and understanding of the company and thus increased awareness of one’s own role in the organization for the benefit of all parties.

As the business community has a central role in relation to the general human well-being, the purpose is to create a platform for new development in the organizations, which can also generate new resources for the employees – and thus the company. To change from an obsolete hierarchical management system to a dynamically updated form of management that brings the necessary professional competence to the forefront in the decision-making processes.

End with the sour mines – Review in ‘Børsen’ News magazine

Sour mines, frictions and conflicts in the workplace can be effectively cleared of the road, so that well-being, a sense of responsibility and production can come to the center.

This is the opinion of business consultant Henrik Sebastian Nybo, who with his new book “The inner leadership” provides the tools to get started with the ventilation and clean-up in the company.

According to the business consultant, a modern working life is no longer just a matter of producing goods or services. It is just as much a production of human togetherness, well-being and self-realization for the individual employee.

For this purpose, Henrik Sebastian Nybo has developed the system “Self-managing Task Units” (STU), which acts as an icebreaker to optimize collaborations in the company – also across professional boundaries.

Initially, space and time must be created in the workplace so that employees can talk to each other, resolve conflicts on the spot and develop a new self-understanding. At the meetings, each employee is encouraged to map themselves through a so-called “mental driving license” with pluses and minuses. “I’m good at that” and “I’m less good at that”. A demanding exercise, but also rewarding, the author believes after working with the method for more than 13 years.

The openness and self-knowledge improves the collaboration across groupings in the organization, so that you do not steer 100 km per hour into each other, but rather drive at 120 km per hour in the same car. With respect, tolerance, empathy and situational awareness.

And what does the company get out of it? A number of studies show that the method has increased workplace flexibility in relation to the surrounding environment, customer needs, legislation and production.

And then the process strengthens the employees’ ability to see the organization where it is and where it is going.

“I want to argue with this book” – concludes Henrik Sebastian Nybo – “that it will be life threatening for a company not to take the time to afford a change.”
“The Inner Leadership” is an easy-to-read, professionally competent and inspiring book.

Review in ‘Børsen’ News Magazine

The well-known business psychologist (NOTE: SN is not a business psychologist as Børsen writes, SN’s title is a business psychology consultant), Sebastian Nybo, has published a book through the publisher Aschehoug entitled “The inner leadership”. The book is subtitled “a key to increased co-responsibility in the workplace”

The book is built up in five parts: Introduction, The New Form of Collaboration, How to Do It, Key Concepts and Examples.

The key concepts are: learning, human senses, memories, perception, human basic mental structure, meeting structure, forms of dialogue and guidance of colleagues.

The book offers a form of collaboration that meets both the increased demands for efficiency, as well as the emotional side of being a person in development. The idea is that employees should be able to collaborate across groupings in the organization to solve specific problems that are shared.

The book creates an overview of the empowerment concept and processes and is therefore a good tool for those who work to increase the degree of self-management in business.

Make fewer demands on yourself – Review in The Monthly Magazine IN

“Stay away from copiers, canteens and coffee machines” urged the well-known business psychologist Sebastian Nybo (NOTE: SN is not a business psychologist, but Business Psychology Advisor) to those of IN’s readers who attended the conference All-Great Women in May. Why? Because it is in these environments that gossip in the workplace thrives. This is where the barren communication arises, which only helps to create a bad atmosphere in the company, and women in particular should be good at getting it to spread.

Those readers who missed Sebastian Nybo’s performance or would like to know more about how he thinks we can become more satisfied in our working lives can pick up more advice in “The Inner Leadership”. It is an easy-to-read non-fiction book that is not nearly as inspiring as the author himself.

However, if you have the surplus to reflect on the many basic questions about what values you value highly in your working life, you will probably gain greater self-insight. Thus, one can also learn to become better at utilizing one’s abilities better and make more realistic demands on oneself.

Too many women suffer, according to the author, from setting too high expectations of themselves and trying to live up to them all at once. If you instead concentrate your efforts, there is a greater chance that abilities and forces will be used appropriately and yes, this also means that you sometimes have to learn to say “no”, even if you think you should take on another task.”
