DI's Leadership Training Programme

This course is created for the English-speaking manager who wants to know more about crucial people management tools in the Danish context – such as Change Management and Team Management. Completing the programme, will provide you with the crucial competencies necessary for succeeding as a manager in a Danish company.

Your leadership reality is the starting point for the course and we aim to provide you with the right tools to handle it. This mirrors the course’s purpose, which is to supply you with knowledge and specific managerial tools to create or enhance the necessary leadership actions to the benefit of your company. Additionally, you will gain an insight into your own personal preferences as a manager: How do I like to organize my work and how does it effect my workplace relations.

The purpose of the Leadership Training Programme is to strengthen your ability to lead and create business results with your team in a culture different from what you are accustomed to.

Understand the Danish Culture

As an important part of the Leadership Training Programme, you will expand your understanding of the cultural differences and how to utilise these differences to create value in your everyday work. Likewise, training sessions during the course will help you anchor your new knowledge as ready-to-use competencies. Through active training sessions, you are offered the possibility to practice structured feedback as a development tool.

Finally, but equally important, you will build a personal and confidential network with other English-speaking managers in Denmark.

You will gain a stronger insight into and understanding of the Danish culture of leadership.
