Mette Norgaard, Ph. D., MBA, is an expert on strategic leadership and learning. She works with executives to design and deliver learning solutions that advance the company’s strategy. She has also designed and participated in executive dialogues and workshops with thought leaders such as Stephen Covey, Jim Collins, John Katzenbach, Rob Goffee, Margaret Wheatley, and Ram Charan.
Over the years, Mette has taught thousands of leaders from a wide range of organizations, including Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, GE Capital, Estée Lauder, the US Armed Forces, and Harley-Davidson. In addition, she has worked closely with the executive teams at companies like Metro International, Pandora Jewelry, and Finnish Broadcasting. Finally, she has been a long-term partner on the development of high-potential leaders at companies like Campbell and Microsoft.
She knows first-hand the incessant pressures to do more with less and to do it faster. Listen to Mette’s expert My Quest for the Best interview to learn:
What leaders who care about the human side of business can be observed doing regularly
How the Finnish Broadcasting situation was turned around one lunch conversation at a time
What distinguishes a conversation from a Touchpoint opportunity
Why sharing your “code” with your team can make you a better leader
How to combine your words and energy in an interaction to produce extraordinary impact
What you can do to sidestep the myth of “no time to slow down”
Her latest book, co-authored with Doug Conant, CEO of Campbell, is TouchPoints: Creating Powerful Leadership Connections in the Smallest of Moments. I encourage you to check out her book and listen to her interview.
