Toothbrushing outside the tent - Erik Winther 2012
When I scout around in the world, I try to smile and say hello, be open and encouraging, but also critical and objective. Whether I succeed is for you to decide, but I always find it interesting to hear or read what others think and say about things – and I’ve been raised in Sweden with Swedish values and priorities; which of course affects my perception of things.

So in what way does this affect my evaluations? Anders Fogelström has lots of experience of living abroad and gives lectures in intercultural management, and wrote about the Swedes from an outside perspective in Bearing Consulting’s blog. Quite informative and fun, yet including some significant generalizations that demand you to be a bit critical. As always.
