We've all experienced how we can mess things up for each other at work. This book describes situations and processes where derailed teams find the winning track again. Read and learn!

Øivind Rastad, former personnel director at DNB NOR

As a young manager, I did not know that cooperation could be trained. This book provides an overview of tools and methods. Today, they are a natural part of my way of being.

Ole Petter F. Bernhus, general manager, Debio

Through his own experiences, the author tells how difficult it can be to find the right focus in hopeless situations where everything is at stake and nobody seems to be in control. The stories are descriptive and the solutions perhaps banal. However, there is a lot of experience and cleverness behind them. This is interesting reading.

Thomes Trømborg, general manager NRV - NEDRE ROMERIKE VANNVERK IKS

This book delves into the causes of destructive patterns of action in everyday life. The author is able to show how conditions in our inner lives are directly decisive for the existence of businesses. Fruitful options are offered. This is valuable insight that is needed in today's stressful working and social life.

Therefore, I hope the book reaches many people.

Ståle Dokken, special adviser to LO's management

The book depicts a deep dive into the human mind, where destructive forces are made visible with honesty, clarity, sensitivity and respect. Stories from the author's working life and consulting business show the need to think anew about cooperation between people. Relevant psychological theories are connected to the everyday life of organizations in a very convincing way. The book bridges the gap between man's longing for meaning and the dance around the golden calf.

Elias McQuade, clinical and organizational psychologist

Exposed to the author's wise reflections, the Devil is as harmless as trolls in sunshine. The aha experiences roll in one after the other, whether the examples, which support the theory, are from ancient times, the near past or current situations. Self-experienced events give the author great credibility. The book navigates the reader towards success by supporting professional competence with the most important resource – the people behind the decisions. If you don't have the opportunity to experience the author, you should in any case make sure to read the book.
