Understanding leadership

Effective leadership demands self-awareness and empathy and the Leadership Discovery Process will help you to develop an in-depth understanding of yourself and your true leadership style.

You will explore topics such as cognitive coaching, the functioning of the brain, team dynamics, situational leadership and human understanding, and you will be guided to solve specific tasks and reflexive exercises both individually and in teams. The LDP is conducted and overseen by an external consulting firm that specialises in leadership training on a global scale.

Action-based Learning

The focal point of the LDP is a multi-day leadership simulator, conducted offsite, that will give you the opportunity to approach leadership from a 'learning by doing' perspective. Through a series of outdoor activities you will take turns to perform as a leader, receiving feedback from your peers and coaches on how you perform in subjects ranging from teamwork and communication to interpersonal and leadership skills.

A Valued Mentor

Supporting the LDP, our mentorship programme allows you to discuss practical leadership issues with executives working in Scandinavian firms, enabling you to transfer the theory you have learned into practice.

Having access to practitioners who will teach and guide you through real-life management challenges, is an aspect of the programme many MBA students find extremely helpful. The skills you will develop, the advice you will receive, and the insight you will gain will bring value for years to come.
