Johan Bertlett is a psychology researcher at Lund University. He says that leadership in a workplace should not be seen as a "one way street."
He studied people working together in different situations and says that outcomes were best when both management and workers had a good understanding of each other, and of each others' capabilities.
"We know where to cover for each other, when to take a step back, how to communicate."
Scandinavia is a place that is already known for harmonious industrial relations. "The power distance between management and workers is less here than in other places."'
Good workplace relations and a healthy work environment all have an impact on productivity, and Bertlett is hopeful that there will be interest from businesses who hope to take advantage of his new insights.
