THE FUTURE IS FEMININE points to a crucial key for future growth, both for companies and for individuals of both sexes: integrating the feminine force with the masculine.

The 7 pillars of 21st century leadership make it possible for people and businesses to achieve more with less while addressing the challenges of our time: stress, talent shortage, low productivity, declining competitiveness and unsustainability.

Read it whether you are a man, woman, employee or leader. Read it if you want to create better results at home, at work and in the world. Read it if you want to influence the future that is already happening.

You can already read it in Danish, and soon in English.

The book is accompanied by a leadership training in 21st Century Leadership where participants learn to practise and master the new rules of the game.

The leadership training is available as online training, inhouse training or live training.

It can be attended in a mixed group or a women only group.

READERS & CRITICS SAY


Truly a nice book!

Really a nice book! I’m fundamentally convinced that you’re right in the importance of being able to play all strings – masculine and feminine. I’ve always felt that was crucial: being able to use both the front hand and the back hand. With your seven pillars of 21st century leadership, you put words on much of my management philosophy. I think the book has international caliber, and I hope it will be read by many leaders and leader aspirants of both sexes, so it can help strengthen business and society.

A fulfilling sensation.

And much suddenly made new sense.

The book has moved me

I’m not just impressed after reading the book – I am moved. When I look through my eyes now, the world has changed colors – I have been transformed. Moved by a solid and thoroughly professional book that fills me with the facts presented in an authentic and credible way. At the same time, the book has filled me with the guidance and vision, my inner pioneer and my heart needs. The book has an undercurrent of wisdom and a desire to act that is inspiring and make the messages glow. It turns up the fire in me that burns for wanting to make a difference.

Must be read by anyone interested in management

A really good book that is spot on in line with the zeitgeist. It is very readable and must be read by anyone who is interested in management and leadership.

Erik DanielsenCEO Wolford

It’s time to think new

Time has come to think new. Business executives have needed to do this for centuries, but it has happened sofar largely in spirals that have lifted the same logic to new loops. And so we have called it innovation, while speed has increased but the course against the unbearable is maintained. “The future is feminine” is about a paradigmshift and so indicates a new mindset for a sustainable future. Therefore, it one the one hand reaches out for everybody and on the other hand show business people and leaders which way to go. This is not a battle for the skirt against the suit, but rather for the dress and shirt in balance. What Prince was for the music, this book may be for the 21st century work life.

Troels Bechsports director and CO-CEO in Brøndby IF football club

Many leaders think too one sided – finally a book that doesn´t

There are many managers who still believe that the road to business success is more bottom line focus, more CPIs, more burning platforms, tighter management of employees and cuts on everything that makes the work more fun and exciting because they are caught in an exaggerated result-oriented, masculine management paradigm. Here is finally a book that clearly shows how unbalanced that view becomes and how we can create more sustainable, happier and (yes!) more profitable businesses by providing space for feminine leadership.

Inspirational!

A book filled with new thinking and relevant perspectives.

Thomas WeikopHead of Strategy, Mobilelife, Danske Bank

A book on innovation, growth and renewed competitive power

This is not a book about gender equality or gender match. This is a book about what companies should do to boost innovation, growth and renewed competitive power. A must-read for visionary business executives who want to future-proof their business.

You can not escape this book
