Finland

Finnish Business Teams

Finns are more individualist than collectivist and therefore the Finnish idea of team-working would tend to be that of a group of capable individuals being given the opportunity to complete well-defined tasks which, when put together, will enable the team to reach its goals.

The team leader will be expected to lead from the front, by outlining the goals and team roles, but then will recede into the background to allow each team member to work conscientiously at their allotted tasks.

Too much day-to-day interest from the team leader could be misconstrued as criticism or doubt in an individual’s ability to complete their tasks.
