This week’s chairlift chat is with Leif Nestvold-Haugen about Norwegian Ski Team Culture.  It starts with a discussion of cultural norms and how husband and wife often combine last names. That is why he recently changed his last name from Haugen to Nestvold-Haugen last summer.   But, the bulk of this discussion is about Norwegian ski team culture.  Norwegian had the highest medal count in the 2018 Olympics with 39 medals and the bulk of those medals were won in snow sports.

This is a great chat to learn more about team culture and the Norwegian model.
