PostNord Stralfors’ Leadership Philosophy

PostNord Stralfors aims to supply our organisation with excellent leaders, and clear leadership is a competitive advantage for the group.

The company’s aim is to create a systematic, consistent approach to make sure that the company has the right leaders in the right place, at the right time, at all levels in the Group and that there are qualified candidates ready and waiting for new management positions as they become vacant. My senior management team and I have ultimate responsibility for supplying leaders for PostNord Stralfors. The provision of leaders is an element of Stralfors’ model for governance and management. 

// Annemarie Gardshol, CEO PostNord Stralfors


Credible managers are secure in themselves and are therefore not afraid to admit their own faults and shortcomings.

The manager is receptive and seeks suggestions from the group, and realizes that the best solutions comes from the group work. The manager is a role model. 


Communicative managers are visible, genuine and engaged, involved in working with the company’s strategic goals and can engage their teams.

Communicative managers create an active dialogue, listen, involve employees in decisions, set out expectations and manage conflicts.

Business approach

For Stralfors, Business Approach means that Volume and Profit should always go hand in hand.

Our managers act professionally, to make sure that we provide customer satisfaction and achieve our business objectives in both the short term and the long term.

Overall vision

Our managers are inquisitive, heavily involved and are very much in tune with changes in the world around us.

Our managers understand that changes in the business environment can trigger a need for changes in our company.

They understand the company’s ultimate objective and get involved to make a difference.


Innovative managers are bold and do not avoid conflict.

They enjoy challenges and try out new approaches, but also have the courage to stand by decisions that promote continuity and staying power when needed.

They have an ability to innovate based on an interest in what happens outside the postal service and an ability to see connections between global trends and our own business earlier than anyone else.
