Become a manager beyond the now - a sustainable manager
Sustainability in leadership means foresight and confidence in opportunities in a longer perspective. Our managerial development program Sustainable Managers® aims to, over time, make managers feel capable, committed and strong to develop both their leadership and their business. The management program meets challenges that managers face; increased complexity, constant changes, changes of skills, requirements to master new technology and new ways of thinking in the business, etc. The focus is to both develop leadership and provide inspiration to influence the conditions for exercising effective management and leadership. Researchers from Lund have made a new evaluation 10 years later of our first participants which shows that the effects remain.
What can you expect from the programme?
Develop the ability to lead a business, lead employees, lead change and lead yourself

A stable platform for your leadership

A reflection learning that utilizes all your experiences and helps you to turn them into knowledge – which we then enrich with research and theory
Our focus in the programme is to continuously develop leadership skills in relation to the conditions of the managerial assignment. The central thing is to strengthen the ability to lead businesses, lead employees, lead change and lead yourself with confidence in your own ability to act even in uncertain and demanding situations. Preconditions for leadership are always present in the programme. The participants’ everyday lives and activities will be central throughout. Problems, dilemmas, challenges, enforcements and opportunities in your own work will be continuously emphasized in the programme and processed in various pedagogical forms.
Highlight opportunities and new ways of thinking
In order to create genuine learning in the programme, we will use a varied and engaging pedagogy, which is largely experience-based. It is based on activation of the participants’ experiences, exercises, insight-creating activities, theory, hands-on training of behaviours, personal action plans and goal-oriented homework. Our way of working is to always start a programme item with the participants’ thoughts and experiences and then carry out insight and training-oriented activities, theories that provide perspectives and secure learning and common summaries and conclusions. With our pedagogy, we are particularly careful about highlighting opportunities and new ways of thinking.
