Leadership development.

I work with leadership development one-on-one and in groups. For one-on-one see under coaching.
For groups I offer leadership course designs and facilitation based on a creativity centered approach and based on cutting edge leadership tools and contemporary research.


Leading a creative team towards tangible results is an art form where you as the leader must create a playful and focused environment where everyone can perform their best. Doing this requires the personal ability to discuss visions, set goals and plan how to reach them, contain conflicts and look for creativity, and collaborate with specialists and managers in your own organization as well as stakeholders outside to create results.


Since 2014 I have developed creativity centered project management courses as well as leadership courses for architects, filmmakers and museum professionals in Denmark and Norway. Both live and online.


Inspired by contemporary research on professional leadership development I provide leadership development programs where participants receive knowledge and tools to become better in the art of leadership aiming at creating meaningful results for their organisations. The programs I design and facilitate to fit the needs of any specific creative organization or department consist of identity workspaces where participants can reflect on how they use themselves in their roles as leaders and project managers in ways that create real value.


Dependent on time and resources as well as organizational need the courses can last from half a day to several months and can be either live or online.
