What can HR learn from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?

The introduction of caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had a miraculous impact on Manchester United after just three months in the job – and it makes for a fascinating case study.

Love them or loathe them, it’s easy to recall how bleak things were looking for Manchester United back in mid-December.

    Great piece of writing. What a fantastic example of how to manage, inspire, get buy-in from your team and ultimately achieve and reap the rewards. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has demonstrated all the qualities required of a good manager/leader and I think many Trainers could make good use of this example in their leadership and management training.
