Good leadership – even in headwinds

When leadership creates calm in the midst of crisis

The leadership course is for the many leaders who come under pressure. After a long period of constant progress and growth, many feel the crisis as something of an abrupt awakening. The tendency is to give a lot more to achieve the same results.

As a leader, it can be difficult to adapt to the new conditions, and if you do not hold on tight to yourself and each other, you will see a tendency towards a fluctuating ‘pendulum leadership’.

Take home value:

And although the crisis is undeniably challenging, there is no reason to intensify it. In the management course, you therefore learn to keep calm and maintain overview – and thereby make sensible decisions.

  • Insight into the special disciplines of crisis management
  • Impulse control as a key tool
  • Insight into case studies
  • Effective communication strategies

Learn to use your authority
The purpose of the course is to give participants insight into how we as leaders can use our natural authority and integrate the governing part of leadership. That does not mean that everything has to be replaced. Coaching remains a good tool, but the manager must also sharpen his attention to key elements of the business.

It may take some time to refresh the tools to be used in the changing business climate. And that is precisely what is particularly challenging for younger leaders who have never experienced anything but progress. That is why we offer this intensive course in management.

Participant profile

The course is aimed at all managers who want to work to strengthen the insight into the special management space crises require.


Being able to accept a crisis before it occurs gives you as a leader the best conditions to prepare yourself and this course will give you the basic techniques and insights into just that. Being able to be present as a leader and be the field of gravity that creates calm in the middle of a crisis is crucial for how the organization is able to navigate.

In the management course, there is a alteration between presentation and dialogue with the participants in the ratio 60/40. It is important that the participants are safe with each other, as the course gets close to the participants. The course alternates between exercises, presentations and reflections on own practice. And you will leave the course with a number of tools and knowledge that are directly applicable in your everyday life as a leader.
