Presentation
Leadership and ethics
The key word for my research is ethics, dilemmas, and clashes of values. The perspective on this research interest has been 1) sociology, primarily Niklas Luhmann; 2) public sector, primarily New Public Management and New Public Governance, and 3) organizational theory, primarily leadership-theory
 
My international publications show my interest for ethics and values in leadership.  I have studied about ethics and seduction, due to my interest in leadership: “Seduction”, 2015, chapter in  Kierkegaard Research: Sources, Reception and Resources, section 3 Resources, Volume 15, Tome VI, ed. By Steven Emmanuel, William McDonald, Jon Stewart, Ashgate Publishing. See also: "Don Giovanni as the re-entry of the spirit in the flesh". Kierkegaard Yearbook, 2008

I have done research on clashes of values in school leadership, between professional and political expectations to leadership; these are not the same:  "To be or not to be a head teacher: The need of hybrids as deparadoxicification machines", in "Hybrid Forms of Governance. Self-suspension of Power", eds. professor Niels Åkerstrøm Andersen, CBS, and professor Inger-Johanne Sand, Oslo University. Palgrave, London. 2012

Further, I have written about clashes of values in leadership in the national Danish Lutheran church, where volunteers and professional leaders do not always share values on what organization and leadership is about: "Disorganization as religion: organization in the Danish Evangelical Lutheran National Church". Cybernetics & Human Knowing, Volume 16, No.1-2, 2009

My paper on the Danish cartoon Crisis analysed clashes of values in the difference between political ideals and religious feelings:  "Here I stand: Lutheran stubbornnes in the Danish Prime Minister's office during The Danish Cartoon Crisis" (2009). European Journal of Social Theory 12(2)

Different values between religion and society was also the point in these two articles, where the focus was the difference in understanding of freedom: “Niklas Luhmann's ambiguity towards religion”. Soziale Systeme, 11(2). 327-345, 2006  og "Necessity and contingency in Luther and Luhmann", i Luther between Present and Past. Studies in Luther and Lutheranism. Schriften der Luther-Agricola-Gesellschaft 56; Ulrik Nissen, Bo Holm & Olli-Pekka Vainio (eds.). Luther-Agricola-Society, Helsinki 2004
 
My first international paper was about reframing problems, in order to find new solutions: "Short-term Counseling and the Use of Reframing",  Journal of Pastoral Psychology Vol. 46, no.2, 1997, s.119-130
